The Hierophant o Hierophant symbolized religion through the image of the Pope. Religion is the recognition of the link between man and God. Its function is to unveil the mysteries and esoteric doctrines.
The Hierophant speaks to us of compassion and charity. The help you give to others does not bring you direct benefits. He teaches us perseverance, loyalty, patience and perseverance in the face of obstacles. The teachings of the Hierophant have not changed significantly over the centuries or in different parts of the world. He teaches us to respect the faith and beliefs of others. His most important teaching is: “By their fruits you shall know them,” that is, the actions of a person speak more than his words.
In addition to churches, there are schools, clubs, teams, companies and societies. Hierophant represents all this because its realm are structured groups with assigned rules and roles. Such environments emphasize belief systems: facts, rules, procedures and rituals. Members are rewarded â€‹â€‹for the following conventions. They develop a group identity. Hierophant is one of three cards that focuses on the group.
In readings, Hierophant often represents learning with knowledgeable experts or teachers. This card also means institutions and their values. Hierophant is a symbol of the need to comply with rules or fixed situations. Your appearance in a reading may show that you are struggling with a strength that is not innovative, free-spirit, or individual. Groups can be enriching or suffocating, depending on the circumstances. Sometimes we need to follow a program or embrace tradition, other times, we have to trust ourselves.
