The fifth card in the Major Arcana is the Hierophant card.  This card is representative of a leader or sometimes a pope.  This card is sometimes called “The Pope,” or the “High Priest,” and he is one that is the opposite of the High Priestess card.  This card has the same type of values of orthodoxy and believes in stability just like a king.

This card represents the importance of being spiritual and a strong religious understanding in life.


The past position of the Hierophant is something that represents being a part of a group or being a member of something.  This card shows that you have ethics that mold who you are and that you come from a religious family that is very strong.  This could change the way that you think about certain topics.


The Hierophant in the present position shows a new belief system and it could cause you not to act irrational.  This shows you not to act on your feelings or your emotions and to make sure that you are established.  Know who you are.


The future of this card shows that you do not have to follow some plan, you just need to let life guide you where you are going and that will be enough.  Things will work out and great things are coming.


In work, you will see that there is a possibility that you will be sent to another area.  There could be a new job when you draw the Hierophant card.


If you want to be in love, drawing the Hierophant card is a good thing.  You need to find someone that is interested in you and this will most likely be someone that you have known for a long time.  If you are already in a relationship, things will continue to be the same way that they are.


This card suggest that you will have change in your friendships.  You will stay committed to people that are already your friend and you will start a new activity.


In regards to money, the Hierophant reminds you that you should make dangerous investments and that you need to stay risk-free and find people that know how you should invest and talk to them.  Shop around if you don’t have the best deal.


Your health will be good if you exercise and eat healthy.  Always follow a routine and do not be ashamed of your body.


The Hierophant is part of spirituality.  This is a tradition and will give you inspiration in your life.  Religion will be important to you and you will see that you have core values that are worth listening to and following.  You will treat others kindly and follow the golden rule.


The Hierophant is seen like other cards, he sits on a throne and is between two pillars.  He reinforces religious beliefs and holds a benediction posture in his right hand.


In reverse, the card can show that you are not spiritual like you should be.  This will not mean that you do not have religion, you just do not feel that you have a real purpose.  You need to find out what you want to do and what you want to control in your life.
