Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Today’s card comes from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti. It is The High Priestess. Whenever I pull the High Priestess I smile. It’s a reminder to me to tune in…some kind of message is trying to surface. The High Priestess is a symbol for intuitive awareness and spiritual knowledge -- it's your inner voice and intuitive guidance.
Many times my clients and students will say, “I’m not intuitive at all.” I, however, believe we all have intuitive abilities; it’s a matter of how comfortable we are at tuning into them.
When I got my first tarot reading, I was amazed at how the tarot reader was able to layout these funny looking cards and describe my emotions and the situation I was experiencing. How did she know – was it a gift – something that the cards magically revealed?
What was even more amazing was after she and I became friends and she told me that I could read tarot cards. Me? At the time I was known by most of my friends, family and colleagues as the “Spreadsheet Queen.” My logical side couldn’t help but take over, especially when I was stressed or trying to make a decision.
My friend and mentor helped me select my first deck of tarot cards. The first time we sat down, she said, “Read my cards.” I knew NOTHING about the cards. They looked like foreign trading cards to me. How could I make any sense out of it? I felt like I was trying to read a book in another language…impossible.
The first trick was to give my logical side some time off. Just giving that energy a break felt good…AND it also felt very uncomfortable. But I did it…and ended up giving her a pretty good reading.
The energy of the High Priestess had awakened and the more I use it, the stronger it gets. It’s like lifting weights to strengthen your muscles. If you use them they grow stronger. If you don’t use them, you lose them.
Have you ever had a time when you tuned into your intuition and either didn’t recognize it or didn’t trust it? Then when the situation played out, you thought, “I knew that would happen. Why didn’t I trust my intuition?”
Pulling the High Priestess card today is a reminder to awaken and use this energy…every day. Think of the High Priestess as a wise woman, a sage or a goddess. She is the part of you that gives voice to your intuition. It’s time to listen. There are messages here for you. Important messages.
Know that intuitive messages come in many forms – you might see or hear something that prompts your intuition, or possibly you have a feeling inside that is hard to describe. If so, this may be your High Priestess speaking to you.
The message today is if you’ve had an idea rolling around in your head or thought of a person frequently (perhaps someone you haven’t seen in a while) or have an undefined feeling…listen, trust...and then act.
Take a few minutes now and tune into YOUR High Priestess. She has something to tell you. What is it?
