Pure, exalted and gracious influence enters the matter. Hence, change, alternation, increase and decrease, fluctuation. There is, however, a liability to be led away by enthusiasm; one may become "moon-struck" unless careful balance is maintained.

ATU II

The High Priestess

The Priestess of the Silver Star

This is attributed to "The Moon" with which Sphere it unites.

This is the Channel of the Serpent of Light winding back from Hod and bringing with it the Influence of the Paths of Gemini and Virgo.

The High Priestess knows the secret powers of the "Lovers" and of the "Virgin". These she has under control in the same sense that the Charioteer controls the Sphinxes. She is truly his Counterpart.

On her Lap is The book of the Law, the lost Thora of the Wheel of the Tarot, transmitted so wonderfully from the Path of IU-Pater through Chokmah, "The Sun", Tiphereth, "The Lovers", and Hod.

Note that the Descent of this Law upon Tiphereth through Chokmah, was by the Paths of Kaph (20) and Resh (200) and that Liber CCXX is the Book of the Law; also that from Tiphereth, which is 6; representative of the Father 10 and the Mother 5 (as Wisdom and Understanding or IH) which make 15 and again through addition 6; it passed into the path of Zain (The Sword) 7 and to Hod 8, thus 15 = 6 and through Gimel 3 (6 3 = 9) to Yesod 9, where it entered the Subconscious Mind of Humanity as a seed of the Aeon.

The "Priestess of the Silver Star" is the Pure Influence of the Higher Self on the Subconscious Mind, transmitting the secret of the Star Universe and of the Silver Star. She is the Initiator into the Mysteries of Nuit, as "The Charioteer" indicates those of Hadit.
