The High Priestess is wearing the crown of Isis, symbolising the Triple Goddess of birth, life and death. Isis is the most powerful goddess in the Universe and she is the keeper of knowledge. Isis gives life, preserves life and can take it away.

The High Priestess sits between the two light and dark pillars of Solomon’s Temple, representing duality and guarding the inner mysteries. This is shown by the Tree of Life behind her, which suggests that she is the gatekeeper of the passage into the inner mysteries. The crescent moon that rests on her cloak symbolises hidden knowledge.

The blue robe also reinforces the notion of knowledge and secrecy. The holy book of the Tora and the crucifix are her magic weapons, the Torah denotes esoteric teachings and spiritual knowledge.
