Thoth Deck Tarot: KEY- 2 - THE PRIESTESS-Part 2

KEY 2-The High Priestess-Part 2
 
As stated in yesterdays blog, The High Priestess is represented as the Most Spiritual Form of Isis and in the case of the Thoth Deck, as the Form of Artemis (Greek Isis). Her clothing is only veils of light for it is known to high initiates that light is not the perfect  Manifestation of Eternal Spirit but that which veils and hides that Spirit. Spirit is of the "Dark Energy", the Limitless light that cannot be seen and it is timeless (eternal=time without end) and infinite ( space without end). The Infinite and Eternal has no beginning nor end to see. That would also mean that the First Matter, is "Dark Matter", not light. The clothing of light is dazzling in its brilliance, so it becomes a blinding form that cannot be seen past. So The High Priestess is shown in veils of  dazzling brilliance thus making her form light and the body of light, Her Force is unseen and She can be called the Soul of Light.  [Many young men have this problem in the world of form, and cannot see the beauty of the Feminine beyond the form.] Thus, the High Priestess is known as the Truth behind the veil of light. Upon Her knees is the bow of Artemis (Diana)  for she is a huntress. The bow is also a musical instrument because she hunts by enchantment. The Idea that is the High Priestess, is regarded by the initiates of Qaballah as the third veil of the orginal Nothing (No-Thing), often called the Menstrum of manifestation, the goddess Nuit (Dark Goddess) who is the possibility of Form. In the Thoth Deck, The High Priestess is shown softer anid more feminine above the bow and more masculine and muscular below the bow. This dichotomy represents the fact that the Virginal Goddess takes on a masculine action/correlative by formulating within itself  any geometrical point in which to contemplate possibility. This contemplation produces the "Point in Time" that Physicists call, "Entity".  The virginal goddess is seen as the potential goddess of fertility.. She is the idea behind all form (entity) ; through her the Idea flows below the Abyss (Dark Energy) and becomes concrete.
At the bottom of the High Priestess card, are seeds, pods, whorls, crystals, ( all symbols of the beginning of life) and the Camel that crosses the Desert of the Abyss. The Camel being the Force that transports the Idea through the Formless desert of I to the Am. Thus this High Priestess is the link between the archetypical and formulative worlds. To meditate on this card is to contemplate that which is wholly feminine and virginal. The High Priestess represents the means  of manifestation ( or from below, attainment itself) It represents possibility in its second stage, without consummation. It is the Maid part of the ternary Goddess, Maid, Mother and Crone; and yet She is also Hermaphrodite, because of being able to "formulate within Herself" and is the reason behind the Myth of Virgin Birth.
 For the Initiate of the Gnosis/Qaballah, this all must be understood before one is stripped of their own veils of light and taken into the "Dark Night of the Soul"....let me tell you, this is not just having a "nervous breakdown" which in itself is challenge enough; this journey upwards on the Camel, is annihilation of all Seeing, where one revisits the Beginning of  Potential Self.
For the everyday card reader, the High Priestess represents; change, alteration, increase and decrease. Fluctuation in identity; either for good or evil as defined by the dignity of the accompanying cards. There is a Oracular gift here of knowing the Past, Present and Future and an awareness of the Greater Self that expands  into Intuitive-Awareness. The gift of a Seer. This gift must be attained before one can see Auras. and Chakras, which are normally "invisible light".  Intuitive sight---is "I" sight rather than the crude sight of eyes, that only see reflection and are blinded by reflection. This is a very Feminine Force.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Your assertion that the High Priestess is a hermaphrodite is well founded. Crowley doesn't make this assertion, but is sure alludes to throughout his essay. How can she be a virginal goddess, "idea behind form, though her Idea flows below the Abyss and becomes concrete" if she were not androgynous? I'm also inclined to agree with your assertion that the First Matter is Dark Matter, above the abyss, no light (limitless light.)I cannot find part 1 of your essay.

Besides the fact that most of us take a shine to whomever agrees with us, I like your insight and well thought out dissertation. You obviously put a lot of thought into your studies. Part 1 of the High Priestess, is in the blogs, but just says High Priestess, without listing it as Part one in the title. Thank you for your insightful comments and may you live long and prosper.

Thank you for the excellent elucidation of so many topics. I've searched through many books/websites, and you are one of the few who truly understands occult wisdom and can effectively transmit it to others.
