|High Priestess TOCC|
|Venus of Wilendorf|
Gloria Feman Orenstein, The Reflowering of the Goddess (Pergamon Press 1960)
Obviously, in our scientific age, we have come a long way from worshipping the old gods. In Tarot, we have the remnants of what the goddess and her priestess once stood for. She represents the gateway to one’s spiritual being and discovery of the Feminine Principle, the formator of life. In a reading of the High Priestess, we are connecting to something beyond our daily lives and attuning to cosmic patterns of life. Symbols and signs discovered here can be divine messages from our Cosmic Selfhood. This is often symbolized in art, music, dance, poetry, prose, religious ritual, and the spoken word.
