Upright: Conventional, Institution, Tradition
Reversed: Rebel, Maverick, Confinement
Stay woke! The Hierophant calls on you to honor the traditions in your life. Whether large or small, honoring rituals can help you feel grounded. At this time, you are drawn towards joining a group, community, or organization that has certain rules you’d have to follow. By joining these groups, you will broaden your scope and expand your knowledge. Strength in numbers allows you to feel a sense of acceptance, unity, and identity. Look to your lineage of ancestors or religion to shine light on the wisdom of the past. The Hierophant guides you on your spiritual journey through unity in community, rituals with rules, and structure in societies. Be prepared to absorb as much information as you can! Higher learning leads to a better understanding of your higher self.
Let that rebellion roar! You are breaking free from the norm and challenging the status quo. After feeling confined by all the rules that have been placed upon you, you are choosing to go your own way, whether the people around you like it or not! This is a time when you are questioning society’s rules and regulations, with a realization that all is not as it seems. Just because you were told how certain things were done a certain way, does not mean there are no other ways to do it. The Hierophant Reversed can also represent an authority figure in your life who has a very controlling way of asserting themselves. Be wary of this person, as they may force you to conform to rules you want to break, seeing your need of freedom as a threat. Choose your battles wisely.
