The Priestess: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
8-17-21 through 8-24-21
The Priestess is this week’s Tarotcast card. This card is also known as The High Priestess. Our intuition and inspiration will be flowing this week. The Priestess is the embodiment of feminine consciousness. She is the Yin principle and she guards the gate of the unconscious. Her purity and virginity are spiritual rather than physical. Her veil is like a bridal veil; only the Initiate of the Light may lift it.
The Priestess’ invitation to us is to look within for our answers, she knows but doesn’t tell. We’re able to unravel mysteries and discover hidden information this week. This doesn’t mean we get to pry or spy. But answers come to us if we tap into our psychic abilities, intuition and dreams. We can trust what we see and feel with our inner senses.
On the Tree of Life, The Priestess travels Path 13. This card joins sephiroth or sphere 1, Kether (the Crown) to sephiroth or sphere 6, Tiphareth (Beauty). Its Hebrew letter is Gimel which means “camel”. Think that’s odd? The Priestess traverses the Abyss – the desert of the soul. Like the camel crossing the desert, she’s designed by nature to cross the wasteland.
The Priestess card is the planetary trump of the Moon. She represents the Moon in its highest aspect – the aspect that joins the human to the divine.
In real-time astrology, the Sun concludes its transit of Fire-sign Leo. It enters Earth-sign Virgo on August 22nd. This energy is in perfect alignment with that of this week’s card. She is the virgin we carry within ourselves, untouched and intact.
“She is sublimation…She is the essence of thee…”
Jupiter is semi-square to Chiron on August 18th. Though we search for meaning and deeper understanding they may be difficult to find. Our personal beliefs and philosophy may not reflect who we are.
On August 19th Uranus retrogrades in Earth-sign Taurus. We find practical ways to overcome our internal blocks. We seek spontaneity and authenticity. We’re less likely to rebel, at least on the surface.
“You, who brought the sunshine to my eyes. You, who wondered through my sad disguise…and I have a love that cannot die … for you.”
We have a Full Moon in Air-sign Aquarius on August 22nd. It occurs at the end of Aquarius. So, it may bring final decisions or the end of matters at hand. We seek friendship and fellowship. We’re more impartial and objective in our thoughts and actions.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Priestess includes falling into illusions. Phoniness and escape from reality. Lunar energy – like lunar light – can be deceptive and seductive. We can’t be careless or trust only in our physical vision.
Let’s focus on openness and receptivity. Remain aware that not everything is as it appears on the surface. Instead, examine and process information rather than accepting anything at face value.
Power colors: silver, pearlescent white and cool, pale blue.
Power stones: chalcedony, clear crystals, opals or moonstones. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to enhance your psychic and intuitive abilities. They will help us see the truth of the matters at hand.
Power metal: silver. Wear it for its clear, bright light. Silver is one of the most reflective of all precious metals. It is the “whitest” of them and is also the most conductive of electricity.
Power fragrances: poppy, lily, white rose, gardenia, jasmine, lotus flower, myrrh and sandalwood. These will purify and cleanse mind, body and spirit and invite clear inner vision.
Power foods: coconut, lotus root, poppy seeds, cloves and wintergreen (mint). Also, tea brewed with jasmine or mint. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
