The High Priestess
Today’s card is The High Priestess. Waite’s descriptions for this card are: Secrets, mystery, the future as yet unrevealed; the woman who interests the Querent, if male; the Querent herself, if female; silence, tenacity; mystery, wisdom, science. Reversed – passion, moral or physical ardour, conceit, surface knowledge.
I believe this card is indeed wisdom, but it’s intuitive wisdom. A card of knowing. When was the last time on finding something out, your first thought was ‘I knew it’? That is the High Priestess. If the person sitting in front of you is receiving a reading, then more often than not, they already know the answer to their question.
