High Priestess -Tarot

The High Priestess was the second card associated with my birthday. I found it strange how these cards came to be, how they all of a sudden fell into my life. It was the timing of it, that was in the midst of being challenged by the struggles with Mom. If you follow this blog, you know that I believe in the signs that surround us at all times. You know that I believe in synchronicities and that nothing happens by accident. And you know that I believe that there was a reason I was meant to learn the truth about these two cards and how they relate to my life and what’s ahead.

The Justice Card and the balancing of truths. To embrace the journey that is to come and break the cycle to see where the scales will finally tip. To find peace with whatever will be, knowing that I have given it my all. You can’t change and control a person, but you can learn how to react and to what extend things influence your own life. To shed the guilt for something that has never been my fault, as I was a child and now need justice in my own heart. And further may it be for the higher good of my own health. Only when the turmoil ends inside will I have a fighting chance to defeat the RA and put it into remission. With too much stress and worries inside, I fear it won’t be possible. My intuition already knows what needs to be done and this is a big part of it.

The High Priestess is the second card and piece of the puzzle. I’m not in the least bit surprised. Again, I will recap some of the meaning from my steampunk deck from Barbara Moore and I already know that some of you will totally relate.

High Priestess core meaning: something that can only be understood through experience.

The High Priestess symbolizes truth and wisdom and understanding. The maddening thing about her, though, is that she represents the kind of knowing that cannot be told and refuses to be confined to restrictions of order and language. The logical left brain does not comprehend her intuitive wisdom, nor can it express it. High Priestess truth resides in the heart and soul and can only be learned via direct experience. It is the wisdom gained through an initiatory experience. It cannot be explained or studied. It is simply known.

When the High Priestess beckons you, do not give way to frustration. Curb your left brain that demands understanding, enlightenment, and, above all, answers. She is here to let you know that overt answers are not in your best interest at this time in this situation. You have wisdom to gain and truths to embrace. You will only be able to do so by going through the experience without knowledge of what is to come. Sometimes you have to fly blind. Have faith that the universe has your back. Do your best, and pay attention.

This card has probably been a game changer for me and some of the best advice I could have received. It’s been a frustrating road and part of me wants that justification. I would like to know some answers and I would like to understand. I would like to put an end to decades worth of worrying and guessing. I have to adjust and remember the advice of High Priestess that such is not a good idea right now. I won’t be prepared for what’s next and I will have to trust more than ever. I have to use other senses and resources if I am to fly blind. My spirit animals already told me that I had to call on my reserves if I want to make it through this in one piece. It’s making more and more sense, doesn’t it? I’m paying attention. I have truths and beliefs in my heart and soul about the matter, but they are my own and the other side (Mom) to the story has been silent over all these years. More wisdom is to be gained and more truths are to be learned. I’m staying optimistic and for once I wish something would prove this intuition wrong. Maybe it is the logical, rational side of me, but I think it is more hope that still lives within my core. I’m still hoping for a relationship with Mom that with all likelihood will never be, but I still stand my ground saying “Never say never”. One way or another I will have to embrace the truth through experience and going into the situation blindly. Words fail the action and the meaning in this. Either way it goes, I will have to be good with the outcome and make peace for my own survival and well being. Remembering this will be my weapon against the frustration.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. It would be nice to know the outcome, but we will not know, before we are ready to that kind of knowledge, dear Rhapsody. I think, this might be the best for you too.
    The signs, as you use so clearly, are given because you are ready for those.

    I came to think about questions again from your other post, while you are together with your Mom.
    Ask her to tell about good or funny memories, from you were a child, this might bring her in a special situation, where she will need to think back in time and view the past with new eyes. Be patient, this might take her time to answer.
    Questions: What can make you very happy? What would you like to do, if you just could choose? Do you have any dreams not fulfilled, as still exist?
    You might be surprised by her answers, if she is willing to answer you, but you know when to ask her.
    Much love to you ❤

    1. Wonderful questions again Irene and so helpful. I will definitely make note of them and play it day by day. I think you’re right and I can’t know the outcome yet and what’s ahead. I might never have found the courage of I did. Hugs

      1. I think I know that I am Irene, I just have been for too long. Sometimes I just don’t want to be that strong all the time and lay the weapons down. It’s exhausting to be a warrior at all times. The time will come when I can do so. Thank you my dear friend. 💙

  2. I too believe in synchronicity, serendipity, the interconnectedness of all things, and that there is a meaning behind every event if we just look for it.
    I don’t understand Tarot and it scares me a little. I know that my birth card is The Moon, and that scares me a little too.I’m a guy, I always look for overt answers, but you give me answers to questions I haven’t asked.
    ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. That’s neat that we have that in common and believe in the same synchronicities Jack. I’m not afraid of Tarot and I think it is here to guide us. There are no bad cards, even the death card is to be understood in a positive way. As a moon child I’m not afraid of the moon either and you have nothing to worry about it. I’ll put in a good word for you. ♥️💙


  3. I also did the tarot the other day after reading your post… it quite well depicts me… but I think we also need to think we can become something different from our original “footprint” so to speak… at least I try to believe this way..
