intriguing woman is Yin, High Priestess of the Phantasmagoric Theater
Tarot by Graham Cameron.
Yin sits alone upon a strangely flowing,
organic throne that reminds me of the earth with its hills, plains,
valleys, and cities. Her hair is adorned with stars, her right hand
rests upon the moon, and her left hand is hidden by her robes. Perhaps
it holds the key to intuition and psychic abilities, perhaps not. Yin is
a woman of mystery.
Yin, there is the blue sky of the conscious mind, below her the deep
waters of the unconscious. Her green and gold robe is decorated with the
symbol of Venus and it is possible that, like Venus, she has risen from
the waters upon which she floats. The bottom of her gown appears to be
tentacled and her right hand could almost be a flipper. Much like the
tides, she is under the influence of the moon.
When the High Priestess
appears, your guides are speaking to you and it is time to pay attention
to your sleeping dreams. The messages in your dreams will help you fill
in the missing piece of the puzzle. Yin offers you the gift of
intuition and encourages you to believe in yourself and trust your
instincts. Reflection is important when Yin is drawn in a reading. In
relationship readings, she teaches us the allure of mystery.
number of the High Priestess is Two, her direction is Inward, her
element is Water, and she is ruled by The Moon. Like the moon, her face

on personal wisdom and growth.
Graham Cameron has this to say about her:
you, sits Yin, the High Priestess. She is guardian to the entrance of a
new dimension, a world she will allow us to enter where she will
explain life and its mysteries.
shows you the path to realization; she takes your feelings and removes
the padlock that separates the outer maze from the inner, enabling you
to enter. The High Priestess holds great cult powers, as symbolized by a
pentacle in place of her left eye. She advises us to listen to our
feelings and intuitions, and teaches us to trust in ourselves.
the upright position, The High Priestess symbolizes seeking answers
within silence, following intuition, remembrance, receptivity, visions
and psychic ability, stillness, serenity, stillness, and an open mind.
Inaction may well be the best course of action when you see the High
Priestess. At least for now.
the reversed position, The High Priestess denotes confusion, noise,
distractions, sharing too much information, hidden agendas, fear of the
unknown, psychic attack, hasty action, uncontrollable fantasies, and
obsession. Caution is always the best course of action when The High
Priestess appears in reverse. Think twice before you give your trust or
make important decisions.
