If you pull the High Priestess in a health tarot reading, the card is all about listening to your inner guidance and following your instincts. As you work towards achieving your spiritual goals, be mindful of what you put into your body and how much impact it has on your overall wellbeing and physical energy. You may have been in a period of self-doubt recently or been questioning your place in the world. The answer is to tune into your intuition. Listen to what you’re feeling and know that you are ‘in the flow’ and are in a good place. Embrace what comes next, whether it feels like an uphill battle or a ‘pinch of salt.’ You have all the resources you need – all you need is commitment to yourself and a plan.
If you’re wondering what’s the state of your physical health, the High Priestess signals good news. Even though it can be tempting to be a ‘tough it out’ type of person, rest and self-care can be a healer. Now is a time for you to get involved in things that help you unwind and feel re-centered. Meditation is one of these things. Do you listen to music you love? Play an instrument? Spend some time outdoors? Find whatever it is that helps you unwind and use it as a form of spiritual self-care. If there are symptoms that are worrying you, get them checked out right away!
When you’re asking about your mental health, the High Priestess symbolizes women of wisdom and knowledge. The card may represent women in your life who are kind enough to offer support and advice so you can feel better on a physical and spiritual level. To receive that support, it may be beneficial to share your problems with this person. Another situation that is suggested by the High Priestess is that of menstruation, pregnancy, or menopause. The card may also represent fertility in a spiritual sense.
The High Priestess is an excellent card to get if you want to avoid illness. It advises you not to take any chances even if something feels out of place or is causing you pain. Getting this card is a sign that you’ve been doing too much to take care of others, which was affecting your mental health in the process. Now is the time to put yourself first. The same goes for your spiritual and material objectives. You’ll want to listen to your instincts and allow yourself to be in sync with your internal wisdom.
If you want to improve your health, the High Priestess signals a breakthrough. Your intuition will take you in the right direction. When it comes to your health, the High Priestess also suggests a female companion such as a therapist or support person because it suggests a feminine influence on your health if it is upright. It can be a sign of hormonal imbalance or an endocrine disorder that should be examined by a specialist. It may also signify a miscarriage or stillbirth.
Lack of proper insight, knowledge, or education is interpreted as ill health by the High Priestess. It may also indicate a lack of knowledge regarding what you should be doing to improve your general health or to address the particular illness you are having. As such, this Major Arcana card advises that only trusted and knowledgeable people should provide you with advice, such as a general physician, holistic specialist or coach, or therapist, so you can be sure that you receive the correct information.
If you want to move past your health issues, the High Priestess is a signal that you should be more open to the guidance offered by others. To obtain the best outcomes from treatment, spiritual guidance, holistic therapies and other methods, look to other people for their expertise instead of doing it yourself. Trust that all you need is the right guidance and you will heal. You will likely also learn that some of your personal beliefs might not be in sync with the best health for you, so be open to this revelation.
When you are asking Tarot if there’s anything about your health that you’re ignoring, the High Priestess says you might be trying to push past a nagging symptom, but by ignoring it, you are allowing it to fester and intensify. So, instead of trying to ‘ignore’ it (whatever it may be), try to ‘talk to’ it and discover what it wants you to know before it is able to release its hold. If you’re wanting a test or procedure, it’s a great time because this card may indicate pregnancy.
The High Priestess suggests that if you would like to know if there’s anything that’s holding your health back, take some time to evaluate your innermost thoughts. You may have a powerful subconscious belief in the impossibility of a situation, which prevents you from accepting a wellness routine. The High Priestess in health represents a high level of understanding. If you understand precisely what your symptoms are and what is causing them, you should now be in a position to address that problem.
The High Priestess may represent a time of great spiritual understanding. If you are experiencing spiritual difficulties, you’ll probably find that the answer is in your subconscious. This doesn’t mean that you cannot have a spiritual experience. It does mean that you’ll need to delve deeper. Consider how to address your spiritual concerns. The High Priestess tarot card may also represent hormonal imbalance in a health reading, indicating the need for hormonal balance. It could also indicate a period of pregnancy or labor.
