Trust your intuition, tap into your inner guidance system through relaxation and meditation. There may be things hidden. It is unlikely that you have got the full facts and information to make a decision. You may have to ask probing questions to get all the information you need. You might only discover the right questions to ask through meditation or by paying attention to your dreams.
The High Priestess can represent a third party in a love triangle or an undisclosed third party, who has an impact from a distance on a business relationship.
With abundant blessings.
