The High Priestess guards access to the Inner Realms. She is the Lady of the Veil of Illusion. Her powers are attractive and hypnotic, and her gifts are profound intuitive wisdom and enlightenment. She represents the Inner Life, that fecund, intuitive, imaginative world which all artists and poets inhabit. The High Priestess is as deep as the ocean of the unconscious that lies behind her. She represents the Anima or Soul Image protecting the hidden treasures of the collective unconscious.
