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 how someone sees you, and you draw the High Priestess, that means this person sees you as someone they have known for a lifetime. That is how deep your connection is. You are drawn towards each other as if the universe has conspired for your meeting. You can feel the spiritual connection even if it’s the first meeting. You are destined.
The High Priestess means that they see you as the balancing entity in their life. You complete them. You give them inner peace. You evoke a sense of mindfulness — of being in the present, enjoying the “now.” They don’t want to let go of you. Being with you allows them to reconnect with their authentic Self.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the High Priestess is a sign that they see you as a turning point in their life. Meeting you was fate, and they are confident you can bring forth the change they have always been waiting for. Remember that this kind of peace and serenity is new waters for them. While they may progress slowly, the connection is already on a deep level. Therefore, be patient, as the wait is worth it.
For existing relationships, the High Priestess means that they see you as their person. You are soulmates and life partners. This person fills in the gaps and missing pieces of your life, and the feeling is mutual. No matter what challenges may come along the way, you are bound to overcome them. Your connection is already at a deeper, spiritual level, one that is written in the stars.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the High Priestess shows that they see you as a significant person in their life. Your relationship may have already ended, but they are still thankful for the time spent with you. You contributed to their individual growth. But this does not automatically mean they want to reconcile. You will know deep within if your connection is headed for a karmic cycle.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the High Priestess means that they see you as a constant person in their life. They know you are soulmates and believe life without you is impossible. However, they are slow to act on what they want, regardless of how deep the bond you share. If you want to take the relationship to the next level, you may need to communicate your unsaid expectations and unmet needs. But keep in mind that you do not need to worry. Things might be slow, but they are sure; you are destined for each other.
