The Hierophant

The Hierophant Description

The Hierophant card depicts a religious figure sitting in a place of worship. His right hand is properly raised in an act of benediction, a sign of blessing. In his other hand, he carries a triple cross, associated traditionally with the Pope. Beneath him, two acolytes are seated, representing the transfer of sacred knowledge and education.

What does it mean when The Hierophant is pulled?

The Hierophant card symbolizes the need to take a traditional, conformist approach to a situation. To go with the system, rather than against it. This card shows that you need to conform to the already existing set of rules and situations. This can be applicable to your relationship with religion or spirituality, but also has a broader meaning of organizations and establishments in general.

What does it mean when The Hierophant is pulled reversed?

The Hierophant card reversed indicates that you may be feeling restricted and constrained from too many structures and rules. You may wish to challenge or question traditions. Perhaps you feel like you need to break free from a restraint. Look at what belief systems are serving you and which are hindering you.
