Festival of Life, Christmas: – Dec 25th. This card shows us how to connect directly with Spirit.
The High Priestess
Again the Sickle of the Moon play its part in the scenary. This woman is connected to the wildness of spirit, to feminine powers, to the Great Goddess – in fact as a Priestess or female Shaman she is embodying the Goddess as she performs the sacred rituals. She is the Goddess.
What does this mean? I’m reminded of the book Women who run with wolves, about the feminine powers within modern women. Is it these I shall connect with? And how – by connecting with feminine spirit, with the Goddess in her three phases – as Virgin, Mother, and Crone. Or maybe as in different aspects of the Feminine – here I’m both thinking of Mary and Mary Magdalene, or of the gnostic Sophia.
I’m just not sure how to actually and practically do this.
