Edmonton Tarot: The High Priestess (II)


Interpretation: The High Priestess card signifies guidance, teaching or wisdom of a spiritual or moral nature which comes from a mysterious source such as dreams, intuition or the unconscious. Inner knowledge and deep perception are the gifts of the High Priestess to those who listen and pay attention.

Image: This beautiful and mysterious Geisha is painted on the side of a building in Edmonton's most vibrant shopping neighbourhood -- Old Glenora's High Street shops on 124 Street. I don't know who the artist is but she appeared a few years ago and has graced the area ever since.

My intuition always serves me well. Amazing how there is a deep, unconscious 'knowing' in everyone. Beautiful painting!

Intuition and insight into dreams is GK's thing for sure. We are both loving your tarot share. Thanks, Oma Linda

She certainly captures the essence "High Priestess". I hope you actually print these off and make a tarot deck when you are finished.

I'd rather have this kind of artwork to look at than a dreary cement wall - I really like it.

One of my fave. tarot cards. I love this one in Edmonton. Wish we had some space where I live so artists could pay homage to fantasy characters like this.

That reminds me of some of the street painting I saw when I lived in NY. We have some of that here, but not enough.

Riot Kitty, I was about to say the same thing! This lovely lady brings to mind some of the artwork beautifying NYC and certain areas of Chicago.

That is gorgeous artwork. My intuition is usually on the mark, so I try to pay attention to it.

Looks lovely, though I can't tell if the words on the top right are part of the picture of graffiti.

Strange, tarot is so Western, and here it is all Japanese imagery.
