The Hierophant Tarot Card Meaning

The Hierophant

The Hierophant is a religious leader, like a Pope.

While the Hierophant can look pretty old-fashioned and stodgy, in principle he just represents established knowledge and tradition, often spiritual in nature. This could mean something as simple as signing up for a Tarot class or as involved as enrolling in a University degree program.

The invitation with the Hierophant is to pursue learning in a group context from an established expert. 

There is value in learning from your own experience, and there is also value in learning from people who have been there before, and with fellow students who can share the journey with you. Depending on how self-reliant or independent you are, this can either sound like a relief or be a stretch for you.

The Hierophant can also represent you as a teacher or leader of others, depending on the context in the reading. Perhaps you have knowledge to share that is in search of an audience?
