Though I probably won't do every card in order and will have other topics besides meanings on my blog, I can't help but talk about the next card in the deck today. II - The High Priestess, is one of my favorite cards. She is the perfect balance between logic and emotions. More importantly, she is all about listening to yourself and trusting your inner wisdom. I find the High Priestess often comes up when someone needs a kick in the pants to get going in a new life direction or to start on a new project. They "know" they "should" be doing something, but logic and fear hold them back. The High Priestess invites us to jump in - and start enjoying life.
Great things happen when you listen to the High Priestess. Also, some very funny things happen. Many people chalk these events up to synchronicity, serendipity, or even coincidence. For those who are religious or spiritual, they were guided by the Hand of God, open to the Universe, or just "lead" on their path.
One of my favorite stories is one I read many years ago, probably in a Reader's Digest magazine, about a woman who had an overwhelming urge to go to the grocery store one night to buy an avocado. She couldn't really understand it, because she didn't even like avocados. But, trusting her High Priestess, she got dressed, put on a little make-up, and went. In the produce department she bumped into her old high school sweetheart. It had been over 20 years since either had seen each other. Both had been married and divorced. They began talking, and two years later were married and living very happily together. And you know what? She never even did get that avocado!
What magical things could start to happen in your life if you trusted your instincts and started listening to your High Priestess? Could you take that Leap of Faith? How would your life change? You don't have to make a complete overhaul all at once. Start taking small steps today to lead your life in the direction you want to go. Don't worry, your High Priestess (and a lot more friends we will meet soon) will be there to help you on the way. Have a great journey.
