The High Priestess advises...

  • Solitude and silence will help you turn inward to find answers. Trust your inner wisdom. It may be helpful to create a sacred space for yourself. This could be as simple as lighting a candle with intention.
  • Seek guidance from a trusted and wise friend or counsellor. If someone is asking you for help, listen carefully and guide them towards their own answers.
  • Tune into your personal rhythm. Notice your feelings at different times of the day, week, and month. Flow with this rhythm for greater ease.
  • This may be a time when silence is the best approach.

The High Priestess warns...

  • Beware of waiting for others to "read your mind". If you're waiting for someone to figure out how you feel, it may be more useful to have an honest conversation.
  • Beware of retreating so far into your own world that you are totally disconnected from others.
