Cat's Eye Tarot - High Priestess

II The High Priestess

I love the expression on the High Priestess cat’s face; it is friendly yet guarded. She has an air of deep wisdom and mystery. The thin veiled curtain highlights the mystical feel of this card; the High Priestess can see between worlds, both sides of the veil. She has a connection to the moon, the lunar cycle. Similar to the Waite Smith deck, beyond her we can see the dark, mysterious ocean. Rachel Pollack links water to the unconscious, “the ultimate mystery”. The path along the beach signifies to me the path to knowledge and self-awareness. The High Priestess’ mysterious gaze invites us to listen to the powerful voice we have deep inside, to follow the path and journey to awareness.
