The High Priestess

Well, let's see.... I'm not deviating too far on this one; a few changes though. The cross on her chest has been replaced by a medallion with the downward-pointing triangle-- the alchemical sign for water. The veil between the pillars has been removed; we now have a clearer view of the water behind her. There is land in the distance on either side, but the center leads out to the open sea, summoning us to explore the depths of our unconscious mind. Oftentimes, we will see the High Priestess with one of her feet on a crescent moon. Here, the moon resides on her staff.
