The High Priestess Tarot card is represented by the star Sirius in the Constellation Tarot deck. Ancient Egyptians identified Sirius with the Goddess Isis, who represented fertility, the new year and the flood. Each year just before the summer solstice, Sirius would reappear in the sky after being absent for seventy days. This coincided with the flooding of the river Nile, which brought fertility to the land. Because of its seventy day absence from the night sky, Sirius was also seen as the doorway to the afterlife. 🌟

When The High Priestess shows up in your Tarot card reading, she reminds you to listen to your intuition and seek answers from your soul. The High Priestess is one of the most mysterious cards in the Tarot deck. She holds all the wisdom of the immortal soul and the invisible realms, but keeps them hidden behind her veil. She speaks to us through feelings, symbols, dreams and a deep knowing.

The Tarot card meaning of the High Priestess points to something that is still hidden from us. It is a call to look within, not to look for answers from others. Connect to the wisdom of your soul, trust the soft voice of your inner guidance.
