Artist Interpretation

A beautifully jeweled woman in a blue dress sits on a throne decorated with bullheads in front of the temple entrance. She holds a cuneiform in her lap, and the four cuneiforms lie on the floor at her feet, symbolizing knowledge. The frescoes on the wall behind her replicate pictures from the famous Ishtar Gate. She is Inanna (later Ishtar) whose name in Sumerian meant “Lady of Haven.”

Inanna was the ancient Sumerian goddess of love, fertility, and also of war. She was the daughter of Enki, the god of wisdom and magic, and the twin sister of the sun god Utu- Shamash. According to the legend, Inanna brought knowledge and culture to the Sumerian city of Uruk after taking it from Enki while he was drunk. She even descended to the underworld to gain new experience. In the time when religion was science, only priests and priestess obtained and kept knowledge, and Inanna supposed to be the High Priestess.

Card Meaning

The High Priestess typifies wisdom, knowledge, and awareness. She is a wise woman, full of modesty and discretion. The High Priestess is eminently secretive, mysterious, and intuitive woman. Understanding all things, she expresses her knowledge selectively. Applying intuition, being open to the imagination and seeking guidance from within, the she trusts the inner voice to understand and estimate possibilities.
