Her invitation to us this week is to look within for our answers, she knows but doesn’t tell. Our ability to unravel mysteries and discover information that’s been hidden or held in secret will be enhanced this week. This doesn’t mean we get to pry or spy; rather, by tapping into our own psychic abilities, intuition and dreams, and trusting what we see and feel with our inner senses, answers come to us and enlighten us.
On the kabalistic Tree of Life, the High Priestess travels Path 13, joining sephiroth or sphere 1, Kether (meaning the Crown) to sephiroth or sphere 6, Tiphareth (meaning Beauty). Its Hebrew letter is Gimel which means “camel”. Think that’s odd? Symbolically, the Priestess traverses the Abyss – the desert of the soul. Just like the camel crossing the physical desert, she is the only creature capable of successfully crossing the wasteland.
Astrologically this card is the planetary trump of the Moon, and represents the Moon in its highest aspect – the aspect that joins the human to the divine.
In real-time astrology, on July 15th there is a New Moon in the Water-sign Cancer, the sign ruled by the Moon. We can easily tune in to the many positive energies of the Crab. This is a perfect time for building and reinforcing our foundation – all of the things included in our idea of “home.” This also includes our internal foundation – our deepest sense of self – which needs to be nurtured and honored. This is great energy for recognizing the importance of our family and friends, our sense of security, belonging and safety.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes falling into illusions, phoniness and escape from reality. Lunar energy – like lunar light – can be deceptive and seductive if we’re careless or trust our physical vision only.
Let’s focus on openness and receptivity while maintaining an awareness that not everything is as it appears on the surface; and let’s remember to process information wisely rather than accepting anything at face value.
A little home alchemy: Power colors this week include silver, pearlescent white and cool, pale blue.
Chalcedony, clear crystals, opals or moonstones worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will enhance our psychic and intuitive abilities this week and help us see clearly to the truth of the matters at hand.
Silver is this week’s metal. Wear it for its clear, bright light – silver is one of the most reflective of all precious metals, is the “whitest” of them, and is also the most electrically conductive. Think about all of that in conjunction with the Priestess’ energy, and you’ll have a powerful week ahead.
Scent your home, bath and body with poppy, lily, white rose, gardenia, jasmine, lotus flower, myrrh and sandalwood to purify and cleanse mind, body and spirit and to invite clear inner vision.
Foods prepared with coconut, lotus root, poppy seeds, cloves and wintergreen (mint) as well as tea brewed with jasmine will provide the same beneficial effects.
