The High Priestess Archetype

The High Priestess in individuation

The Quaterny or mandala is the symbol of harmony and balance – in some ways the goal of individuation.

Rather than the change and fluctuation indicated by traditional tarot decks, the High Priestess as the quaterny.



The Alchemical stage that key refers to is Putrefaction. To a certain extent this is still part of the Dissolution Process where great care must be taken so that the matter being dissolved (under moist heat) must be stopped at a certain point in the experiment. This is when complete separation has occurred, for at this critical level an entirely new substance has been formed or transmuted. It is one of the most important steps in any alchemical operation. Its separation process is of the Celestial Essences from the Elements. The Cup of the High Priestess is being offered to be drunk-which action is both the Dissolution and Separation process. It is lie the Holy Grail in the sense that all who drink from it will have immortality- Transmutation at its best.
