The Priestess represents the Moon in her higher aspects - that which joins the Human to the Divine. She sits on the Tree of Life middle pillar - the only one that spans the Abyss - linking Kether to Tiphareth - so joins the supernal triad to the rest of the Tree of Life.
Crowley states: In this card is the one link between the archetypal and formative worlds.
She is clothed only in the luminous veil of light. It is important for high initiation to regard Light not as the perfect manifestation of the Eternal Spirit, but rather as the veil which hides that Spirit. She is light and body of light. She is the truth behind the Veil of Light. She is the soul of light.
She is the initiatrix - connected to the lunar goddess - the huntress and to the mysteries of the woman. She links the hidden and mysterious secrets of the beginnings of life. She is the bridge between our conscious and higher selves and works through our subconscious - in dreams and synchronicity. This is a time to go within and listen for these messages and trust your intuition.
