August 22nd – September 22nd
Card: High Priestess
Virgo Season has conjured the The High Priestess and what an appropriate card for this season! The High Priestess is part of the Major Arcana in tarot which means it is a main archetype that embodies big themes in our lives which include: intuition, sacred knowledge, the divine feminine, and the subconscious mind. The earth energy of Virgo season helps us ground this in reality through trusting your instincts, paying attention to your dreams and the signs The Universe is sending you. Virgo is symbolized by the Maiden and she thrives on: kindness, responsibility, patience, and mental focus. The High Priestess making an appearance asks us to do our best to honor your intuition and your intellect this Virgo Season as it will be a potent time for self awareness and personal growth.
In the Raider Waite’s illustration of The High Priestess the illustration depicts a woman sitting on a cubic stone between the two pillars at Solomon’s Temple, Jachin, and Boaz. Jachin (right) is generally referred to as the Pillar of Establishment and Boaz (left) is the Pillar of Strength. She is wearing the crown of Isis which indicates that she is a practitioner of magic. The High Priestess is also wearing the solar cross around her neck that connects her to the season of the earth. The crescent moon at her feet is seen also in many depictions of the Virgin Mary, and means that she has a complete grasp over her emotions The pomegranates in the background refer to her relentless ambition. Let’s further explore how The High Priestess and Virgo Season will interact.
We enter into Virgo Season with 6 planets in retrograde (Pluto, Saturn, Venus, Jupiter, Neptune, and Uranus), as well as Chiron (a comet) that are asking us to slow down to reflect, rejuvenate, re-think, and re-strategize many aspects of our life. The High Priestess’ message for Virgo Season 2020 is to prioritize your intuition in all areas of your life. Utilize all this retrograde energy to acknowledge all the times your intuition was spot on whether you followed it or not. Honor your inner mystic and analytic this season as The High Priestess acts as the mediator between these 2 aspects. She is the path between and believes that there is knowledge to be learned in both worlds. Virgo’s symbol of the maiden reminds us to stay connected to the Earth as she represents the goddess Astraea. In Greek mythology, she was the last immortal to abandon Earth when the gods fled to Olympus hence the sign’s association with Earth. To honor The High Priestess, and Earth Goddess Astraea energy this Virgo Season partake in divinely inspired rituals. There is no right or wrong way to perform ritual. It is simply about the intention you set. The Hight Priestess urges you to listen to the promptings from your intuition and Astraea asks you to remember the Earth when engaging rituals. Align your intuition and your intellect to create your own mysticism that works for you. Ways to honor the intuition in the process can be through meditation, journaling, or candle magic/gazing. Honor the Earth by adding more natural elements into your personal rituals for example cooking and cleaning with more fresh ingredients, and spices such as bay leaves and cinnamon or by adding sea salt, flower petals and crystals to your next bath. This Virgo Season weave your intuition, your intellect and Mother Nature into every aspect of your life for a healthy, wealthy and abundant Virgo Season.
