The High Priestess
The High Priestess and The Magician
A match made in heaven best describes the connubial bliss of a duo that moves through the world with the grace of dance partners Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The active yang principle of the Magician meets with the receptive yin of The High Priestess like a hand fits into a glove. Each of you instinctively understands how to complement the other. And while the Magician usually takes the lead in financial and domestic decisions, The High Priestess is the one who most naturally knows how to attract those changes in an effortless and flowing way. This is one of those rare combinations where lovers can also become successful business partners as The High Priestess intuitively knows how to best execute the Magician's grand schemes. The challenge in this union lies in the Magician's thoughtless trampling of The High Priestess' highly psychic feelings. For this union to work, the Magician needs to remember that there is strength in the intuitive softness of The High Priestess, and The High Priestess benefits by learning that even though the Magician failed diplomacy school, it's often by actions -- not words -- that a Magician shows his love.
The High Priestess and The High Priestess
Two peas in a pod describe this cozy and secure union where you both truly prefer being a twosome instead of a solo unit. A natural ease and rapport exist as you virtually read each other's minds. Consideration and compromise come readily in this union, where the priority will be on harmony. While peace reigns when two High Priestesses get together, making a decision or taking action can become an ordeal. The double yin energy creates a tendency for passivity -- this could be an "all talk, no action" union. To move things forward, it might pay to take turns being the one in charge. Your challenge is to take all the love you freely share with each other and translate it into real world progress. After all, if you two had your way, you would spend your entire relationship snuggled under blankets in a remote cabin getaway.
The High Priestess and The Empress
This combination knows intuitively how to work a room and how to make friends. There is a bit of a prom king/queen quality as a couple. The High Priestess has the diplomatic skills to complement the Empresses' social acumen. This dynamically social duo can achieve popularity and even attract envy. Yet despite the formidable networking power of this combination, there is usually also a deep affectionate bond beneath the surface glitter. The High Priestess is sensitive to the moods and quirks of the Empress and knows how to work with, instead of against, these moods. The Empress is more than willing to share feelings with the intuitive High Priestess partner who has the ultimate knack for active listening. In this relationship, the Empress feels heard and validated. Challenges and obstacles are usually met with indomitable team spirit.
The High Priestess and The Emperor
A deeply satisfying and lasting union is possible when these two team up. In the same way that some musical notes create harmony, this combination rarely experiences a discordant note. The Emperor's practical and applied approach appeals to The High Priestess whose strength is not in doing things but in intuiting the best approach to doing them. Emperors are charmed and soothed by the sweet talking and sensitive High Priestess, who also brings a dose of sultriness to the bedroom. For most Emperors, making love ends up as a textbook exercise. However, with a High Priestess in the room, the Emperor feels safe to let go of perfection and just play. Sometimes The High Priestess' intuitive approach to life can annoy the Emperor as this character prefers the logical route. Sometimes the more flamboyant High Priestess can get bored with the steady and predictable Emperor. But most of the time, these two just naturally really like each other.
The High Priestess and The Hierophant
This couple is often drawn together by the very differences that invariably pull them part. At first, The High Priestess admires the rebellious and carefree ways of the Hierophant who equally admires the emotional nurturance The High Priestess offers. However, the intimacy needs of The High Priestess are in direct opposition to the need for freedom that propels the Hierophant to new adventures. The High Priestess wants to stay home and cuddle, while the Hierophant would rather be skydiving. To make this union work, the two need to focus on what they do share in common: an uncanny gut instinct. When the union is about spirituality or channeling hunches into business, these two can become a potent combination. But the domestic styles (homebody versus never home) mean that for this to work in the long run, there must be compromise and clear agreements.
The High Priestess and The Lovers
This charmed union looks on the outside as sweet as it is on the inside. The High Priestess knows how to keep love and romance alive and the Lovers soul knows how to keep the home and hearth as a sanctuary and love nest. Both are naturally intuitive and communicate in subtle and wordless ways with each other. Mutual appreciation for art and beauty further cement this loving and vibrant union that often attracts public attention. This is the couple that everyone talks about as "meant to be" or "soulmates." For the most part, the relationship is graced by a deep affinity that leads to longevity. However, friction can occur when the flirtatious High Priestess goes too far and makes the loyal Lovers person feel unloved. Yet, despite occasional conflict, the psychic link between these two is so strong that this deep understanding often cements the union in face of any challenge, even infidelity.
The High Priestess and The Chariot
This serene combination works well when The High Priestess is able to allow the Chariot to spend quiet time in solitude. While the Priestess thrives in partnership, the Chariot is well able to hang out all alone for a lifetime and feel completely whole. Because the Chariot does not need to be in relationship but chooses it,The High Priestess in this union can feel neglected or unnecessary. Yet, a calm quality pervades this relationship and that feeling of equanimity is something The High Priestess (the queen of mood swings) craves. In the company of a Chariot, The High Priestess feels a deep peace that often keeps the union stable despite the differing needs for companionship. With patience and tolerance, this couple often achieves a balancing act that leads to a long and happy union.
The High Priestess and Strength
Best suited for business partnerships, this union can work in romance if both partners have a common philosophy or goal. Even when this couple doesn't try, material success comes naturally. The High Priestess supplies ample intuitive guidance to the Strength soul who is quite willing to combine hunches. No slouch at psychic ability, Strength knows as well how to harness tidbits of information from their surroundings. As a couple, they naturally read each other's moods and feelings and know when to push and when to back off. Prestige and public acclaim often bless this union, along with astute money decisions. Yet despite all the success materially, conflict often arises when the homebody High Priestess feels the Strength partner's ambition is at odds with domestic bliss. The Strength soul needs to be continually reminded by the more home-oriented High Priestess that all work and no play will make for a strained and drained union.
The High Priestess and The Hermit
The humanitarian instincts of the Hermit naturally appeal to the fair-minded High Priestess. Accordingly, this partnership works splendidly when the two are aligned toward a common cause. Otherwise, the needier High Priestess can feel her companion is off on yet another inner or outer quest at the expense of creating a loving union. The High Priestess needs to allow the Hermit the freedom to save the world and be responsible for everyone else. Yet, the Hermit truly savors the attention and care of a High Priestess partner who is innately in tune with the Hermit's true feelings. In exchange for this deep understanding, the Hermit will often soften the "I am fine" shields and let vulnerability happen. When this occurs, this union can go beyond mutual admiration into deep and profound love.
