The Priestess stands within her sacred grove, with the animals, plants and insects at her feet making her appear as if she is growing from the bounty at her feet. Everything is bathed in the soft glow of silvery Moonlight. A crescent Moon behind her head glows with a Moon dog that is reflected in the glow from the hands of the Priestess. Her flowing locks are filled with the bounty of accepting. Her face, serene with a near Mona Lisa like smile, shows her faith in the internal self. Her gown is a perfect symbol for the card. The gown reveals much, the shape of a hip, the under curve of the breast. But with the chatelaine and collar-pieces covering that which should not be revealed.
When the Priestess comes into our spread her smiling benevolence can mean a time of clarity and perception for you. With the Priestess appearing in your spread you must be sure to look to see if there is something that you are missing because her message is that there well could be! The Priestess, responsible for the souls of those in her care, looks all around her before making a move. In the card her calm demeanor is supported by due caution as her eyes look to the side. By looking at her we know that she can be objective. The Priestess can also appear to challenge you. Are you making good choices? Do you need to take a longer range view?
Is it time to look in the mirror and consciously put selfishness aside? Whatever her message to you, The Priestess’ glowing light will help you find your way to your dreams.
