High arcan Hermit and high arcan High Priestess combination - The search for deeper meaning and mysteries of life.
Hermit tarot card

Card 1 - Hermit

The Hermit depicts an old man standing alone at the peak of the mountain while holding a lantern in one of his hands and a staff on the other. The mountain denotes accomplishment, development, and success. The hermit tarot card refers to the level of spiritual knowledge that he attained, and that he is ready to impart that knowledge to everyone. There is also a deep commitment he has to his goal and a solid awareness of the path that he is taking. Inside the lantern, you will notice a star with 6 points which is also known as the Seal of Solomon. This symbol represents wisdom. The staff that he holds depicts authority and power.

High Priestess tarot card

Card 2 - High Priestess

You've most likely encountered the High Priestess before, but in other forms - she can be seen in the archetypes of Persephone, Artemis, Isis and many more. When you encounter her, you will see her sitting on a cubic stone between the two pillars at Solomon s Temple, Jachin, and Boaz. Jachin (right) is generally referred to as the Pillar of Establishment and Boaz (left) is the Pillar of Strength. The pillars also depict the duality of nature; masculine and feminine, good and evil, negative and positive. The High Priestess's location between the two suggests that it is her responsibility to serve as a mediator between the depths of the reality. She is the third pillar - the path between. She believes that both pillars are equal and there is knowledge to be learned in both worlds. You will also notice that she wears the crown of Isis which can mean that she is a believer of magic. The high priestess wearing of the solar cross denotes that she is connected to the season of the earth and the earth itself. The crescent moon at her feet is seen also in many depictions of the Virgin Mary, and means that she has a complete grasp over her emotion and the pomegranates refer to the ambition of the priestess.

Similar or supporting cards:
The High Priestess has an enigmatic quality so is similar, yet different, to a number of cards, perhaps because of her mysterious complexity the nature is experienced slightly differently, so she’s quite difficult to pin down, for instance, quiet reflection and contemplation brings wisdom from The Hermit. The Hierophant is also a wise teacher, yet dispenses guidance and information openly. The unknown factor of The Fool. The Moon, Devil, and Five of Swords, all have aspects of secrecy, but are experienced differently

High Priestess combinations
In free flow readings (or immediate future to outcome position) the card that follows her will be illuminating. For instance, if she appears before other secrecy cards she may help shed light on a situation that’s brewing in the background of which you’re unaware. If The Fool and High Priestess appear together in a reading you may have trouble moving forwards with definite information, as they can take you round in a circle (due to the nature of the card meanings; the unknown factor).
