el colgado 12 513x893

Letting go. A necessary and refreshing change. The destruction of cannons. 

'The Priestess' ("La Sacerdotisa") is card #2 of the 'Glenda's Tarot' digital work by Glenda Leon.
This card, also known as The High Priestess, symbolizes purification. Throughout our lives, we can learn to detach from what intoxicates us, what prevents us from prospering, and what burdens us, whether it is what we listen to, see and eat, or the relationships with other people, actions, and customs that we repeat without being aware of it. The breath that makes the clouds disappear indicates the will and ability of the human being to change reality. It is also an allusion to meditation, where thoughts would be like clouds, and satori, the clear sky. Blue is a symbol of purity and abundance. The blue sky is then like a temple of the present moment, the clouds are the past or the future (thoughts) It represents the detachment necessary to experience the spiritual evolution of being, to access a clearer perspective of things.
Tarot - The practice of tarot emerged in Italy around the 15th century as a form of entertainment, which later spread to much of Europe. The Major Arcana are 22 individual numbered cards, each one represented by a character or symbol, such as the Fool, Death, and the Wheel of Fortune, among others. Before the emergence of the printing press, tarot cards were illustrated by hand, being commissioned by artists as if they were a pictorial or sculptural work. This tradition has continued throughout history, and more recently, we have seen recreations of tarot designs made by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Leonora Carrington, and Remedios Varo, among other artists who have been attracted to the deep mysticism around the subject and the visual impact of tarot cards.
