The High Priestess is the card of inner balance, intuition, and duality. Her number is 2, balancing two sides to everything. She sits between light and darkness, black and white, sun and moon, masculine and feminine, yin and yang, life and death, conscious and unconscious. In love, she represents a soul connection that transcends karmic cycles.
The High Priestess sits peacefully between two pillars, one white, one black. She is in perfect harmony with the material and spiritual worlds. She asks you to look within yourself for the answer, because your intuition and feelings will guide you to the truth.
If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the High Priestess, that means that you both feel a soul connection with each other. The High Priestess is all about duality, you could view each other as your other halves. This could indicate soulmate or twin flame energy. On the other hand, they could also be a karmic relationship from a past life. Whatever the case may be, you are meant to learn or gain spiritually from this soul. You and your person connect at a spiritual level. There is just an innate “inner-knowing” and understanding between the two of you.
The High Priestess as love outcome is a sign of a spiritual union. As the card of duality, you and your person are either mirrors of each other or polar opposites. If you are opposites, you complement each other. This card is astrologically associated with the Moon which governs intuition. You could be very in tune with each other, sensing when the other half is upset without them telling. Getting to know your person for who they are will be easy. Although the High Priestess is a guardian of secrets, you won’t be able to keep secrets from each other. However, you could be a very private couple.
