The High Priestess knows how to quiet her mind and trust her intuition and wisdom. The fact that she is showing up in this position means you are having a hard time listening to your inner voice. Everyone around you is chiming in, confusing you, telling you what they think you should do or feel. It’s hard to embrace silence when friends and family won’t shut up. The noise in your life is the problem.
Actions to Take
Strength is heaven on earth, the unification of our spiritual and animalistic selves. Strength controls the animal within us. It does not deny the animal. It acknowledges and celebrates it. The fact that this card is showing up in this position means you need to tame the lion, whatever part of you feels out of control. Is your sexuality getting you into trouble? Is your anger ruling you? Your appetite raging? Don’t let your impulses get the best of you; let your higher self take the lead.
The Hermit represents a recluse, someone who retreats from the world in spiritual meditation so he can eventually light the way for others. The fact that this card is showing up in this position means you’ll get some much-needed alone time. You’ll sit in silence, listen deeply and connect with God, the Universe, your higher self, whatever you want to call it. Once you do, you’ll be able to re-enter the world and help guide others.
