Tarocchi Fool’s Journey: Card 2 (The High Priestess)

  • by

In the beginning, there was the Fool; and the Major Arcana plays out the rest of his tale. “The Fool’s Journey” is a fascinating and important concept for both beginners and tarot pros alike. Come along with me as I revisit this journey through 22 cards from 22 different decks.

The High Priestess: Heed Your Inner Wisdom

It’s easy to get drunk on power when you first start wielding it. This is why the next step in the Fool‘s Journey is a more grounding, introspective one. After the Fool meets (or evolves into) the Magician, his counterpart, the High Priestess, makes her presence known. Where the Magician’s energy is channeled outward, the High Priestess’ energy is channeled inward, allowing the Fool to dive deeper into his subconscious with his own intuition acting as a guide. She teaches him that not all that is true or of value is in the physical realm, and that sometimes the wisest, truest answers can be found within.

In the Quirky Creatives Tarot by Kevin Dones, the High Priestess is called The Intuitive — aptly depicted as a tarot reader quietly contemplating the mysteries laid out before her with a knowing smile.
