The High Priestess

20140824-152107-55267315.jpgMy friend Bethany Jones is an amazing tarot reader – there have been a few crucial points during my time knowing her when her readings have helped me find clarity and peace – whether you believe that tarot is clairvoyant or just that it helps you look at whatever your situation from a new perspective.

Bethany has recently started a tarot business, Tarot by B, and I wanted to make her something to commemorate. Her favorite card is The High Priestess – partially because it has her initials, but also because it’s about intuition, which is at the heart of her life and her practice.

In making this card, I wanted to capture the abundance and splendor that I think exists in everyone’s center, and also because the High Priestess herself seems so royal and in a lush jungle of sorts, so I used a lot of gold, along with bright blue and red and sparkles. I put a muted flowered black frame around it to symbolize the outside, with intuition being a sort of treasure trove within or bright, warm respite from the dark.
