I am used to seeing the high priestess with the book in her hands and the moon at her feet, in other decks interpreting this card didn't come naturally to me, but this image does. I like that she is standing, surrendering herself to both the moon and the knowledge before her. Her closed eyes make plain the quiet calm and serenity of the ritual, and notice how her hair blends in with the night and the cloak she wears, like her mind connecting with the moon, then connecting with the water behind her. I also like that she is quite frail and gaunt, it gives her a more tomboyish quality, makes her appear much more instinctive and much less regal.

Is there any meaning to the constellations above her?
