The priestess stands at the doorway - blocking the way, waiting for someone, for you maybe? I am very interested in what she has to say, and what could be through the doorway (there seems to be a large mountain). She wants me to stop and listen for a while. The banner above her has pictures of seeds sprouting, perhaps symbolising the germination of a new idea, a spiritual embryo - but its also blocking the view of whats behind. She has an hair of royalty because of the crown, but also of simplicity because of the plain white coat. The theme of religion is indicated by her crucifix, and the bible she holds. The square slab she is on reminds me of a temple - but am I on the inside looking out? Perhaps its time to leave the tradition of the temple and she is blocking my path! What lies between Yin and Yang? What is the white sickle thing coming around her? Is it the moon (is the unconscious just a trinket at her feet?)

Wikipedia: "The right Tablet of the law (Moses' Decalogue) further signifies Jachin-the white pillar of light; the left Tablet, Boaz-the shadowy pillar of darkness. These were the names of the two pillars cast from brass set up on the porch of King Solomon's Temple... These two pillars respectively connote also the active and the passive expressions of Divine Energy, the Sun and the Moon, sulphur and salt, good and bad, light and darkness. "
