The Hierophant is raising the unconscious to the conscious. He signifies bringing ancient universal wisdom and knowledge among fellow humans. The card embodies wisdom, unlocking great potential, right action through experience/understanding, and depth of sincere commitment in all aspects of life. If the Hierophant is not describing yourself it means that guidance is on its way. Something which is out of your sphere of knowing will be presented. The Hierophant is an invitation to go within and seek the answers you need or to seek a guide that could assist you. Right action that is expressed here is not only for the one pulling the card, but right action for everyone the card holder impacts. The invitation is to think on a global scale than only a personal way, which can be limiting and single minded. The Hierophant is a card of the bigger picture, not only the individual one.
Is there a battle between your spiritual knowledge and what is right for you? Is there a contradiction that has a missing element? This is a time to delve into what you think is true and reinvestigate beliefs or philosophies that might be outgrown and no longer serving the highest good. The Hierophant is a card to remind us to never stop learning and expanding and questioning what we may think is true. Sometimes as we come to conclusions in life or belief systems we become trapped in false ways of thinking that are no longer relevant in our lives. There is always a more subtle, and deeper depth to discover. These water are infinite. Life is always fresh when we have a childlike wonder that always is open to find out why. The Hierophant asks us to remember our childlike ways of learning so we don’t become stuck in certain ways of thinking/being that make us stagnant in our own lives.
The Hierophant card can also show a current or future relationship of a deep spirit based love connection. Someone who you can evolve with and bring the subconscious to light within each of you. This partnership will be the meeting of the divine to express the work that needs to be done through both of you. You are both open to being clear channels for divinity to work through you. There will be an immediate connection upon the meeting of both souls that recognizes the depth of a true connection felt. Each partner will be exposing in the other that which was still hidden inside. Because there is a willingness to be open to each other and to life there will be immense fire that burns through illusions and old karmic wounds. There is a unique potential to unite in sacred consciousness opening yourselves to be gateways for the divine to express itself on earth. If each one can allow the flow of grace, love, and genuine understanding there will be tremendous growth and sacred unity within this partnership.
