The Papesse (or High Priestess) represents the combination of knowledge and intuition which leads to insight and ultimately to wisdom.
Notes on the Tarot Cards
Although I encourage the reader to explore the cards and come up with your own keywords, meanings and associations, here are some of my own ideas and notes.
The Queen of Cups represents a great depth of emotion and great capacity for empathy, well guarded against drama.
The Eight of Coins (Pentacles) represents craftsmanship and its development.
The Five of Swords represents change and, perhaps, conflict.
Let’s hang on to what we’ve got, and cherish our traditions – but let’s also not be held back by reflexive conservatism for its own sake.
