The Hierophant Tarot Card

The Hierophant Tarot card


Once known as The Pope. A teacher and a counselor. A good and benevolent influence. Helping the subject understand the correct path. A priest, rabbi, or perhaps a guru. One who enlightens. The Hierophant represents learning and living by the rules of society and of spirituality. But in some contexts, inflexible and unyielding. Unwilling to accept deviation from the conventional. Traditionally, merciful, forgiving, kind, respectable, dutiful. This card also represents joining and accepting. Sometimes interpreted to suggest marriage.


Rejection of traditional morals. A renegade. Anti-establishment. Breaking the rules. Conversely, the inverted card often is thought to represent excessive stubbornness, stodginess, inflexibility or conformity. My way or the highway. In certain contexts, could suggest divorce. Also, perhaps a warning of respiratory infections such as cold and flu.
