The woman depicted on the card sits on a throne, symbolizing her authority and spiritual power. She wears a crown, indicating her connection to the divine, and holds a book, representing knowledge and understanding. The veils surrounding her suggest mystery and secrecy, while the crescent moon at her feet represents the cyclical nature of life and the subconscious mind. Overall, the High Priestess suggests that true wisdom comes from within, and that we must listen to our intuition and trust in our own inner guidance.
