2 The High Priestess
II The High Priestess
Womanly planned beginnings, with something hidden. Religious element. Intuition used. Higher guidance. A woman’s touch. The curtain hanging behind the High Priestess suggests something hidden. Upon the columns appear the letters B for Boaz, and J for Jachim. These are the names of the two pillars of Solomon, one black, the other white, symbolizing good and evil, duality. In the hands of the High Priestess, is the Torah, the Book of Law. The crown on her head, circle (female) and two horns (male) represent the Aumakua. The cross on her breast represents the uhane and unihipili. Pomegranates and palms on the curtain behind her represent male and female. At the High Priestess’ feet, the cool moon representw cold, hard reason.
