The Hierophant Tarot Card Meaning

Written and illustrated by Grace Duong

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Hierophant card features a religious figure sitting on a throne with two pillars representing law and liberty. He is seated in an environment that looks to be a church or religious institution. He wears a triple crown with the keys of heaven at his feet. His right hand is raised in blessing, and in the other he holds a triple cross which is traditionally associated with the roman catholic pope. At the bottom two corners lie two religious servants, ready to assist and uphold the knowledge and education of this institution.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, the Hierophant card is represented by a pyramid with an entry way at the bottom, entering at the lowest level of the structure to learn the foundation of the institution. There are stairs winding around the pyramid, able to get to the top and bottom. At the tip of the pyramid is an all seeing eye, filled with knowledge and wisdom of the known and unknown. You cannot see inside the pyramid because the education is secret and only known to members who are a part of this organization. The pyramid also represents higher learning and harkens to the ancient pyramids that hold the sacred knowledge of the Egyptians.

The Hierophant Numerology

Five symbolizes change, instability, and conflict. When you pull a card associated with the number 5, it means that you are in a power struggle or in a dynamic where the power is imbalanced. This can bring a feeling of loss of control where you will have to take the power back into your own hands. Numerology 5 brings change that is often uncomfortable, telling you to step outside of your comfort zone. However, it is a reminder that change is inevitable and that you must adapt to continue forward, even if it is challenging.

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.

General The Hierophant Reversed Meaning

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 for freedom as a threat. Choose your battles wisely.
