The Hierophant (Pope)'s Meaning

Depending on your own nature, the Hierophant can mean very different things. At its root, it represents doctrine, but doctrine can come in the form of teaching and guidance or rigid authority. Where it appears in your spread is also important, as it is most often indicative of your own approach to the moral, religious, and social conventions of the world. Considered wisely, it helps show the path towards fulfillment.


There is value in an ambition from your past. Look to a strength that you may have neglected.


The opportunity for work or study under a superior is approaching. If the others around you are capable of being wrong, so are you.


Look to the support of a solid organization or structured principles to achieve success. Your actions should be motivated beyond selfish reasons, or there will be little reward for them.
