3 May 18: The High Priestess & The Moon

All will be revealed. But not right now, maybe in a couple weeks.

There is not a more psychic pair in the deck than these two powerful Major Arcana. The High Priestess is sometimes called the “Daughter of the Moon” and are both here to let us know there are things we don’t and are not meant to know right now.

Why do dogs and coyotes howl at the moon? On the Morgan Greer card, everything is deep dream blue: the sky, the hills, the still pond from which a creepy crawfish seems to be emerging – but he never does, he never crawls all the way out onto dry land, he’s always half in and out of the water in that in-between being awake and asleep dream state. The world is half in shadow, and it’s hard to tell what is real and what isn’t. There are two towers pictured on the card, one on either side of a long road that leads off and disappears into the far-off mountains that form a gateway. What is beyond is a mystery.

The High Priestess is seated calmly on her throne, also between two pillars, or a gateway to the unknown. This card is also a dream-vision in blue: blue sky,  her draped blue gown, the deep blue banner draped behind her and lined with purple, the color of the highest vibration. She wears a crescent moon on her head. The answers we seek are written in the mysterious scroll she holds and protects in her lap, but she has decided this isn’t the time for the reveal.

The deceptive moon distorts and we are prone to fantasy and confusion and a certain amount of anxiety – especially all water signs (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio). This is a flood of subconscious messages, and you would do well to write them down.  Many great plans, inventions and ideas for great works of art and literature were dreamt by their creators. But what is real and what is fantasy? The ‘world of illusion’ also encompasses film and theatre, poetry, fiction, and science fiction. There’s a fine line with science fiction. What may have been sci-fi 50 years ago is a smartphone now.

The knowing Priestess is however a trustworthy and experienced tour guide through our subconscious, dream life, and intuitions.

She may be a psychologist, her notes on her lap as she helps the patient sort out what is real and what are only vague, unidentified anxieties. Shadows.

Pregnancy is a very strong possibility when this pair show up, but may be being kept a secret for some reason, possibly even from the father. Possibly waiting for test results or secretly trying for a child and working with cycles. The Priestess likes detox, and having so much moon and water energy may really affect all water signs or those with a lot of water in their birth charts.

Pay attention, the answer is in a dream.
