Wild Card Wednesday Tarot Card Interpretation: The High Priestess
Each Wednesday, I will explore a different tarot card poetically, philosophically, and personally. While understanding textbook meanings of the tarot cards is useful, my Wild Card Wednesday series is not meant to be instructive. Rather, it is a free-flowing tarot card interpretation that may inspire you to delve deeper into the nuances of the cards.
The High Priestess: Married to the Truth
Truth sometimes reveals itself like a flower, and sometimes like a storm. Petals unfold within the blossom of my mind and I wake up with the scent of rose petals on my pillow. The night before all that lightning and I dreamed of the old castle, the high tower.
The only way I see him now is in the half-haze of the astral plane where every passport is stamped ‘once upon a time.’ He’ll always be a man of smoke and schemes. And I will always be married to the truth.
I’m broody as the moon, with affections that wax and wane. Sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in a hallway mirror and the girl behind the glass whispers the one prayer that she knows. I am forever grateful that I can hear her. An invocation is just another kind of omen. I am forever grateful that I know when to listen.
