Tarot Card of the Week: Tuesday, February 17th February 16 2015

by Carolyn Agis

Hail High Priestess, in all your quiet coolness. We have seen you before back in November, but then you were upright, and today you greet us reversed. The lower polarity is at play this mysterious week, where we have the opportunity to embrace a powerful new moon in the very last degree and minute of Aquarius.

β€œAt the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” Lao Tzu

The High Priestess here asks: why are we not allowing our intuition to guide us? Perhaps this question is fitting the very week that Betsy Cohen begins her six week course at Maha Rose about developing your intuition through awareness. Or even because we welcome in a new moon this week and here we see the archetype of the Tarot that rules all moon cycles. The crown of Isis upon her head, the High Priestess knows without doing, she knows and heals from the inside out. She sits between a black and white pillar of dark and light, passivity and action. Our High Priestess is the uniting intelligence and she asks you to reconnect to your inner self.

Your subconscious is receptive, so feed it with the very best. Nourish yourself with beauty and mystery--embracing the sacred and invoking a ritual for the new paths before us. This is an important week. In addition to the new moon, we are in the nameless days of the Mayan calendar year, a time of purification and cleansing, and we are about to welcome in the Chinese New Year on Thursday. Dive deep within the waters of yourself and drink deeply. You will remember that you know who you are.
