The High Priestess is the female principle, passive, secretive and receptive. She symbolizes hidden knowledge, mysteries, intuition and is associated with the Moon and its phases. The Ace of Wands represents the beginning of action, the spark of an idea. Given the fiery nature of Wands, we should expect that enthusiasm, passion, optimism along with a strong desire to achieve goals would be the fuel that energizes the initiation of activities. This combination blends the energies of a very passive card with an excessively active one.
The elements of the cards are Water (High Priestess) and Fire (Ace of Wands). The elements are in contrast and are fighting each other, but in this combination, the major arcana card (High Priestess) will have a greater impact (positive or negative) on the situation.
