Daily Draw: Universal Fantasy Tarot ~ High Priestess
I drew this card for a friend yesterday in the Don't Do position. At first glance her seating assembly looks like a chariot, but no, it's her and all her hidden knowledge, suspended high above earth, in a seat whose only ingress and egress is down. And out. Free falling.
I'm reminded by this card that feeling is why we hold our own council and continue on with old stifling traditions when our feelings or interests or even basic beliefs have changed. We go into free fall until we accept the change. In truth, the knowledge the High Priestess doesn't possess is fear of change is the stumbling block, the fall isn't nearly as far or hard as we preconceive it.
"The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, but by preconceived opinion". ~ Arthur Schopenhauer 1788-1860
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
