The High Priestess as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Keep your own counsel


There’s an element of privacy and secrecy about today. This does not include deceiving others. This is about keeping your own counself & being private about your affairs. This may be because the wolves are at your door & it will serve you well to not give people any ammunition against you.

Invisibility is your friend today and not revealing your hand, your plans or your thoughts is your best course of action.

As with all things lunar, the High Priestess also relates to intuition and inner wisdom & today you need to utilise both & listen to them intently. This is a day for gathering information, not revealing it.
