Mythic Study - The High Priestess

The High Priestess is by far my favorite card in the Mythic deck. Queen of the secrets of the dead, queen of the underworld. Very seductive and alluring. I would think the High Priestess is the reason many of us are drawn to reading tarot in the first place. Who wouldn’t want to delve into the unconscious mind, or explore puzzling dreams we have, or want to know what our own destiny is, or even see why our lives seem to take odd directions at times, as if we were meant to take a certain path. Does anyone have experiences where the High Priestess has touched their lives?

I was reading the story of how Persephone was abducted. It said, it was thought that she was very young because as Hades swept her up in his arms she seemed to be more concerned that the flowers she had gathered fell out of her hands than the fact that she was being abducted by the lord of the underworld. There was a sense of immaturity and naiveté about her. That stood out to me for some reason. I was wondering if there was some significance to that and how it might relate to this card, but I haven't come up with anything. The High Priestess doesn’t strike me as someone being so young and naïve.
