II — The Priestess

Woman with circle
 José Luis Rodríguez Guerra

The Priestess

The guardian of the deepest secrets of life. She stands before the fiery circle, the gate to life itself. The initiate must pass through the gate and take physical form to become a part of the Universe in order to experience all it contains. — RD

"In the homogeneous and infinite expanse, in which no point of reference is possible and hence no orientation is established, the hierophany [appearance of the Sacred] reveals an absolute fixed point, a center.
                – Mircea Eliade
