Series: The Tarot, Major Arcanum II

by Deanna

On a personal note I'd like to say thank you for the appreciative comments from so many of you. As I've said, I am not by any means an expert at reading Tarot cards.These posts are meant for those of you who are interested in learning, and understanding the mesmerizing images of the Tarot. In this post we'll be addressing The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot and Strength.

5 The Hierophant or The Pope : He is seated between two pillars representing law and liberty, or obedience and disobedience.At his feet are two keys, believed to be the keys to Heaven. The keys, gold and silver, that may represent knowledge and life. Others suggest that they represent the Sun and the Moon.
 A seeker after knowledge,wisdom, ritual, routine, religious guidance and authority. Education in its formal sense, advisor Marriage. Morality.Hierophant's purpose is to bring the spiritual down to Earth. Where the High Priestess symbolizes and connects to the esoteric with her secret, solitary rites, the Hierophant (High Priest or The Pope) is generally seen as a spiritual teacher, one who gives advice and guidance to those seeking it. This card doesn't favor individuality or uniqueness.The Hierophant is about shared feelings, beliefs and ways. However, that the Hierophant can represent those in the querent's life who preach by the book, or refuse to deviate from old-fashioned manners of doing things and being stodgy. Stubborn.Try to keep in mind, however, that those personalities orthodox types are usually acting out of fear.
