The High Priestess and the Formation of the Moon

#2 The High Priestess from the Smith Waite Tarot

The Moon might seem silent now, but there’s been billions of years of activity that’s made it what it is. 4.5 billion to be more precise.

In Tarot, the Moon is represented by the High Priestess, and like the celestial body she’s associated with, she has a heart of fire and one heck of an outer armour.

She doesn’t tell you unless you ask, but it’s taken her years to attain the wisdom she presently sits with. Her silence is full.

Take a look at the NASA video below depicting the formation of Earth’s closest celestial neighbour.

These days, the Moon might spend most of its time quietly reflecting, but it wasn’t always that way.
