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 someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the High Priestess, that means this person intends on strengthening your bond. Even if you’ve just met, they feel as though they’ve known you for several lifetimes. They feel connected to you — as if the universe made you, especially for them. They know that you’re soulmates and that there are a lot of things that they can learn from you and this relationship. They intend on honoring this bond and will continue to chase after it.
The High Priestess as intentions means that they want to enjoy the moment with you. You help bring them out of their own head and when they are with you they can just be themselves. They don’t feel the need to put on a front. They intend to get in touch with their higher, spiritual self and the only way that’s possible is by being around you. Your presence brings them serenity, a feeling that they haven’t felt for a long time.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the High Priestess is a sign of them intending to take things slow. You are significant to them, so much so that they want to take things slow. They want to be careful when deciding their next move. You’ve changed their life, one way or another, and they know that you are the one for them. Something deep and romantic is brewing here, so you’d better stick around.
For existing relationships, the High Priestess represents an intention to hold you close. Your relationship is at an amazing spot right now, and they embrace that. They are deeply satisfied with you and your relationship — there’s nothing else they wish for. They also trust you wholeheartedly and know that your feelings for them run just as deep as their own. They intend to keep your relationship exactly where it is because they truly believe that it can’t get any better than this.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the High Priestess shows that they intend to cherish you, but it’s unclear whether it’ll be from afar or by your side. Your relationship was special and they will always hold you close to their heart. They’ve learned a lot from their time with you, however, this could also be a sign that they’ve moved on. They are thankful for everything you’ve done for them, but they don’t intend on pursuing you right now.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the High Priestess means that this person’s intentions are pure. You are their soulmate, and nothing can change their mind. They will cherish you and are willing to make deeper commitments with you, but only at their own pace. The High Priestess is seated in stillness, so their languid pace is a given. They want to commit to you, but they also want to make sure that the time is right. If you feel that things are going too slowly, then it’s best to directly tell them that.

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the High Priestess reversed, that means this person intends on getting to know you more, but something is holding them back. You pique their interest, but there is just something about you that they can’t wrap their head around. It’s difficult to get to know you on a deeper level — you’re shrouded in mystery. There’s something here that isn’t clicking.
The High Priestess reversed as intentions mean that they are confused. They don’t know what they want. Their thoughts are jumping from one extreme to the next and it’s difficult for them to figure out what they want to do. They feel like on some days, they want to commit to you, but on others, they want nothing to do with you. Unless this cycle of thoughts is broken, then their intentions will continue to remain unclear and they will end up doing nothing.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the High Priestess reversed is a sign of them intending on doing what they think is right. They are acting on their own accord. They aren’t concerned about how their actions might be affecting you. They intend on continuing as they are, and it’s up to you if you want to put up with it. It’s also possible that they are keeping things from you as they feel like it wouldn’t be important for you to know. Either way, their intentions come off as selfish.
For existing relationships, the High Priestess reversed represents an intention to communicate more. Your partner feels like there’s something that’s holding your relationship back, and after contemplating, they’ve figured that it’s your communication. You’ve both been keeping things away from each other and it’s time to come clean. They intend on being completely honest with you and they hope that you’re willing to do the same. An honest conversation is going to go a long way in redirecting your relationship to a better path.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the High Priestess reversed shows that they intend on leaving your relationship in the past. They still think of you fondly, however, they have moved past the desire to rekindle your relationship. They are willing to hook up with you, but the relationship will not go any further than physical attraction. They’ve already closed that chapter of their life with you, and no longer intend on pursuing you. If you’re looking for a romantic relationship, you won’t find it here.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the High Priestess reversed means that this person’s intentions are to leave things as is. They don’t feel the need to commit any further to you. You are important to them, but the fact that you aren’t clicking anymore is getting to them. They’ve decided not to commit any more than they already have. Your partner may have some darker thoughts about you, and the only way to find that out is by being direct with them.
