In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.
The High Priestess is the spokesperson for intuition. When we think of intuition, we usually think of a little voice whispering in the backs of our minds, or perhaps a vague sense of rightness or wrongness as we make choices. I don’t think we connect the witchy idea of intuition with phrases like “trust your gut” as often as we should. I’m very guilty of this, certainly–my body is an achy, exhausted place to live, and I often do my best (consciously or unconsciously) to ignore the signals my meat suit sends me.
But intuition can be the feeling of warmth or tingles when you put your hand over the right tarot card. It can be a tug in the pit of your stomach when you’re considering making an unhealthy choice. I’ve quoted this song on the blog before, but I love Sleeping at Last’s “Body“, in which a repeated refrain goes, “There’s magic in our bones, a north star in our soul that remembers our way home.”
So when going through your day, the High Priestess encourages you to remain open to intuition from all sources. It’s one thing to try and distract yourself from a bad pain day from time to time, but it’s quite another to ignore every message your body ever sends you. Be willing to listen at least some of the time. Even if all you can do is hold space for your body to complain, that is still insight. Trust the magic in your bones.
