High Priestess Tarot Card

The high priestess Tarot card also shows an enthroned woman.  Many tarot historians say she is Sophia, because Sophia’s trademark is the wisdom throne, like pictured here in this 500-year-old woodcut by Abrecht Durer.

Others say the High Priestess card shows Mary Magdalene, or perhaps Mother Mary.
Whichever Christian Goddess she is, she’s also Isis because she’s wearing Isis’ unique moon crown.  This card is sometimes called the Papess, meaning Lady Pope.
Notice the Tree of Life formed by the pomegranates and the chakras on her body.
Sophia is called “the Tree of Life,” in Proverbs 3:18.

Okay, so we know the biblical Hokmah, aka Sophia, was feminine.
