The High Priestess

From time to time I like to consult the cards to see what they have to say about a current situation, my progress or to simply get clarification and a glimpse of what lies ahead. Monthly, I consult my Spirit Animal deck to see what energy supports us for the upcoming month and personally I have found much value in doing this. These oracle cards have always made sense to me and have been a guiding companion. Over the years I have grown very close to them. Today was the day to seek advice and this time I used my Deviant Moon Tarot Deck. I only used it twice so far, but already the connection is deep and true. In my opinion Tarot is more complex than simple Oracle Cards and there is much more to learn about Tarot. I only have two decks of Tarot and soon I will be reunited with my Steampunk deck that I left behind in Germany.

Today the High Priestess showed up in my reading and it’s not the first time she made an appearance. It seems she shows her magnificence every time I am in Germany or about to go. Either way the subject seems to revolve around Germany when she crosses my path. And Germany has always held some challenging times for me, so I am not surprised.

The High Priestess is a Major Arcana card and there about 22 of them in a deck. Major Arcana cards indicate that the seeker is in the flow when it comes to where their lives are heading. This flow can be so strong that the seeker feels as if they have little control. This couldn’t be anymore true and reflects exactly how I feel during these crazy times. Yet it is very comforting to read that despite of it, I am in the flow of things in regards to where life is heading.

Further meanings of the High Priestess are that it is the most intuitive, connected card in the whole tarot deck. The High Priestess is a card of awareness and subconscious ness. This card urges you to listen to your inner voice and to follow your instincts. Your mind knows far, far more than you think it does, and the High Priestess embodies this concept. When she arises in your Tarot reading, stop looking for answers in the outside world and instead, turn within for the guidance you seek.

The Hight Priestess represents secrets, mystery, intuition, wisdom, magic, and making the impossible become possible. I think I am about to do that, ain’t I!!!!


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 🙏🏼💙🦋
