The High Priestess

Teatro2002

Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me with a question I have, I'm new to Tarot and I just started to learn to read the Tarot. What does the "B" and the "J" stand for on the pillars on the High Priestess card? Thanks a million.

Hi!

The B stands for Boaz which signifies negation, the J means Jachin which means beginning. :)

You might want to go through the Tarot basics on these forums, there you'll find a lesson on each and everyone of the cards in the deck - that's where I got the information from! There's tons to learn in those threads, I'm going through them myself and learning loads every time I sit with it!

Welcome to the forums, hope you'll learn - and share - a lot!

Light and love,
Jenny :)

Hello Jenny, :)

Thank you very much for your reply. I'm just starting to study the tarot (mostly through books & a web study course) I really appreciate any info. I just found this forum/website tonight. I will definitely follow your advice go through the tarot basics on this site. It is very interesting isn't it? Thank you again!

Many Blessings :)

Hi!

I can absolutely, definitely and of all my heart confirm that the Tarot Journey is the most exciting, fulfilling and interesting project I've ever gotten myself into. It brings me joy and good energy each and everyday, and the best thing: It will never be "over" - I will never have learned it all, I will never have reached a point when it doesn't make me grow, learn and see things differently!

Because everytime you reach The World, you go back to being The Fool again! (That is how I see it, anyway - and I love the very thought of it!)

I wish you as much joy on your journey as I'm having on mine!

Love and light,
Jenny :D

the LWB always mistranslates Boaz as Negation.

Hi,
Jenny have you ever studied the Qabbalah? I understand that the Qabbalah goes hand & hand with the Tarot. I'm studying through B.O.T.A. (Builders Of The Adytum) They are a non profit, reputable & long time established, international organization. I've read a couple books on Tarot & they always refered to the Qabbalah. It got me interested. I read a couple books about the Qabbalah & I found I really liked it. The more I read, the more I was convinced to study more in depth with B.O.T.A. If you'd like more info, I will post a couple web links & book titles.

Many Blessings,
Teatro
