Key 2--The Priestess.(or high priest)
For self is a sea boundless and measureless.
-K. Gibran, The Prophet
Key 2 is the image that represents an androgyny universal principle of intuition, independence, self-trust, self-knowledge and self-resourcefulness. This is the androgynous figure that represents balance known to Chinese scholars as the female magnetic force, curved , soft and receptive, that is Ying. From the navel down, this androgyny is all straight lines, strong, dynamic, yang. This card reminds us that we are all composed of the receptive female magnetic and the strong assertive electric forces of male. The High Priestess, wears a sun and moon crown to remind us that we are all are to be commitment ed to have and achieve a equal balance in strength and softness. The faceted crystal background reminds us of the multifaceted aspects of intuition that are present at each level of consciousness: mental intuition (the triangular crystal); emotional intuition (the round crystal); spiritual intuition ( the diamond crystal), and physically noted information (the octagonal crystal). Intuition is the Great calm Lake of spirit that is reflective, deep,contained and always present, waiting to be accessed and trusted. However, we must first trust and love ourselves to be aware of this quiet power.
The High Priestess is a powerful symbol to use as a visual affirmation to enhance self-trust, independence, and resourcefulness. This symbol reinforces the trusting of one's intuition.
