A woman sits solemnly draped in blue and white.  These colours symbolize purity, peace, and communication.  A white cross is located in the middle of her chest symbolizing her love of spiritual awareness and devotion.  On top of her nun-like veil, sits a head piece (coronet) in the shape of a white circle and curved arches.  This can represent phases of the moon, a crystal ball and stand, or a peeled open fruit all representing sight, intuition, and reproduction.

In her hands, she humbly holds a loosely rolled document with the letters showing as TORA.  If we pulled out the document to expose the full word, we might find the letters TORAH which is the Jewish sacred book of traditions and laws of behaviour.  The word Torah means Teaching.  The woman is a teacher; however, she presents as shy, introspective, or hesitant in what she might teach.  There’s an uncertainty and she’s not biting at the bit to tell you what she knows.  So we could say few will be taught by her and likely only those that will not move her emotionally.

At the base of her flowing garment is a very large quarter moon of bright yellow almost having the feel of a large curved sword.  She is flanked by two columns.  One column is black and has a B on it which means Boaz and the other column is white with a J on it which means Joachim.  These two pillars represent the concept of duality while the woman represents middle and neutral ground.

Behind the woman is a curtain with a pattern of *pomegranates (fruit of forbidden knowledge) with its seeds exposed yet in tact (as if an X-ray image), palm trees, and foliage aiding in strength and conviction for what lays ahead.  The pomegranate fruit represents growth, creation, but also the potential that it’s a forbidden fruit of the Adam and Eve myth.  It may be foretelling that any who, enter behind the curtain, may not wholly come back as they were before.  They will have changed.

All of these objects obscure the water in the back which is further reference to intuition and sight, namely subconscious that can not be easily grasped.

*Symbolism of the Pomegranate in Judaism

As per Wikipedia

The Book of Exodus [52] describes the me’il (“robe of the ephod“) worn by the Hebrew High Priest as having pomegranates embroidered on the hem. According to the Books of Kings [53] the capitals of the two pillars (Jachin and Boaz) that stood in front of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem were engraved with pomegranates. It is said that Solomon designed his coronet based on the pomegranate’s “crown” (calyx).[48]

The pomegranate appears on ancient coins of Judea. When not in use, the scroll handles of Torah scrolls are sometimes covered with decorative silver globes similar in shape to “pomegranates” (rimmonim) Some Jewish scholars believe that it was the pomegranate that was the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden.[54] Pomegranates also symbolize the mystical experience in the Jewish mystical tradition, or kabbalah, with the typical reference being to entering the “garden of pomegranates” or pardes rimonim; this is also the title of a book by the 16th-century mystic Moses ben Jacob Cordovero.

The pomegranate is also connected to Pluto and the underworld… psychic knowledge beyond the veil.
