You are The High Priestess
Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.
The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.
What Tarot Card are You?

This tarot quiz, which I couldn't pass up, was found over at Daphnewood's, soon after finally clueing in to podcasting. Yes, it takes me a while to get hooked on new technology. My favorite podcast so far is the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe, which is very informative and entertaining. And, this being me, and the opportunity being there, I'm listening to them all in order. Sad, I know. So, I'm on episode 23 (from last December). They're up to episode 71. After several days of at least two or three episodes a day, the skeptical viewpoint is pretty firmly in the forefront of my mind.
I can't help but feel that the two topics, of skepticism and tarot, are a strange juxtaposition. I don't actually know why I should feel that...I have, at times, read tarot before, and see absolutely nothing paranormal or spiritual in them. They're wonderful for contemplating possible future action, or for inspiring discussion. And I would like to think that I am a skeptic, especially with regard to scientific issues (as opposed to social science issues, where my stance diverges a bit).
I don't think that there is a contradiction. But yet, I forever feel the need to defend my tarot history anyway. I'll stop myself from doing that more, and instead just post the quiz. This card has always been one of my favorites, and was one of the cards I most identified with when I got my first deck (a Rider-Waite, when I was about 12). I don't know if it reflects the real me in any way, but I wouldn't mind. I'm curious to know what you get as your card, and if you feel it represents the you which exists, or perhaps the you which you would like to become.
