In numerology, 2018 corresponds to the numbers 11 and 2 (2+0+1+8 = 11 = 1+1 = 2).
These are the numbers of the High Priestess in the Tarot – She who leads with intuition and walks with the grace of sovereign knowing.
This is a year of stepping into the sovereignty that the energy of the High Priestess both evokes and inspires. In the story of the Tarot, the High Priestess is a disciplined teacher that helps the Fool transform into the Magician he is destined to become.
She also shows him where he is failing to listen to his inner truth and as a result, his insight and self-reflection increases.
When on the path of self-discovery and self-knowing, we will have times of forgetting who we are in order to remember once again the sweetness of intuitive knowing. This is when the High Priestess energy comes in. She brings a remembrance of the divinity within the larger picture of what’s happening. She reminds us that even if all seems cloudy, confusing, challenging and contradicting right now, there is learning and healing happening.
The High Priestess holds multiple perspectives at once. She has a strong relationship with Justice (card 11 in the Major Arcana of the Tarot). As we look to the scales of balance both in our personal lives and on a global scale, we often see one side heavily weighted.As 2017 came to a close, the sense that things are “not fair” could have surfaced. Instead of being debilitated by the grief that comes from witnessing injustice, the High Priestess is actively working towards re-balancing the scales.
We must remember that there is no end goal of ultimate balance within the High Priestess. Just like the moon, her planetary ruler, her reflective phases reveal the strength in change. She reminds us that there is always a larger cycle at play, and with that, we cannot take everything seriously.
The moon reflects the light that is given off from the Sun, and this year we must constantly come back towards reflecting the light within one another and within the world, choosing to not remain stuck in the dark phases.
Everything passes and is impermanent, teaches the High Priestess...
