Tarot High Priestess: The coming of the Witch Queen.
The High Priestess represents what is mysterious and intriguing. Like the sphinx, while she maintains her mystery she has power, if she was to reveal her mystery she would lose her power for mystery is energy.
Because she is mystery each of her revelations is a door to another of her secrets for she has the ability to morph into another aspect of her personality. She is the eternal quest that is forever illusive.
Her message is that to be immortal we need to embrace ambiguity and be excited by perpetual waves of possibility and hazard. Mystery, that which keeps life interesting.
When a riddle has been solved it loses its power.
