“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” — Albert Einstein
Welcome to the third in our series of brainstorming exercises as we meet the 22 Business Mentors of the Tarot.
This technique will help you to look at your problems and issues from a different perspective and find answers that you hadn’t considered. We are all creatures of habit and that includes our problem-solving process. I use this brainstorming technique with my Tart Business Coaching clients to shake up their thinking. It helps them look at problems and issues from a totally different perspective and find answers they hadn’t previously considered. Each of your mentors will help you to think from a unique perspective and take a different approach to finding solutions. All will give you credible answers from their own strengths and experience.
Following on from Sherlock representing The Magician, today we meet the next of our Mentors - The High Priestess.
Key 2 - The High Priestess
The High Priestess is a predictor, a wise woman with psychic powers. She ’s the gatekeeper to hidden secrets and while she might be someone “behind the scenes”, she is always the fountain of all knowledge.
She is the wise woman of fairy tales, the healer, the prophet, the creator of magic and the keeper of wisdom. She believes that you will find the right answer if you look deep enough inside yourself. She will direct you but expects dedication from you. She is a hard taskmaster and believes in tough love.
Think of wise women like Joan of Arc, Florence Nightingale, Marie Curie, Eva Peron, Emmeline Pankhurst or Vianna Rocher (Chocolat), The Witch of Portobello, The Oracle from The Matrix or even Nannie McPhee.
The dark cave
The High Priestess represents the unconscious mind, the communication channel between the conscious and the collective unconscious. She is how you find inspiration, intuition, ideas, memories and secrets of everything that's ever was or could be.
She’s the dark cave where you go to explore yourself.
So give your current situation some deep thought. Ask yourself, “In this situation what would The High Priestess do?” Stop seeing through your own eyes and look at it through hers.
She wants you to be analytical and look at your situation from all angles. To listen, learn and digest the information before acting. Research various sources, even those you don’t normally agree with and then think, evaluate and decide how to move forward. If you contemplate the options for long enough, the right answer will be given to you.

About The Tarot Coach
My business experience ranges from project management of large-scale website builds and integrated marketing campaigns to managing digital start-ups and training companies. I have been involved in the Internet since the early 90’s and have worked with clients in most industries, both public and private sector. In 2012 I retrained as a business and transformation coach while continuing to work as a contractor in the digital field.
My spiritual background is in exploring various religions, practices and philosophies, from the Abrahamic religions to Witchcraft, Shamanism and Druidry. The Tarot has always fascinated me and the study of its symbolic meanings, in the western esoteric tradition, has introduced me to Kabbalah, Astrology, Alchemy and so much more.
