Family, Friends & Relationships:

The reversed Hierophant can indicate that others do not really understand where you are coming from or why you think a certain course of action is the right one. It is not always necessary that your nearest and dearest get it or agree, once you have made a solid decision.

Card Meanings: Unconventional Relationships, Vulnerability, Unorthodoxy, Challenging Tradition, Foolish Generosity, Unconventionality, Frailty, Unconventional Lifestyles, Reversed Roles, Impotence

The Hierophant is very much about ‘doing the right thing.’ You may be struggling with an issue and are unsure about what is ‘right’ for you to do. Know that the answers are within you. Remember that the ‘right’ thing is what is right for you also.

Book Details
Elements of the Psychic World: Roberts was unique in that she never sought large audiences or fees when she channelled Seth. All her sessions were done at home before a small group of family and friends. Her husband took most of the notes during the channelling and in this way Seth dictated several books. Roberts also wrote other books herself about her contact with Seth and other channelled sources, which included the American philosopher William James and the French painter

Tarot Triumphs: I have kept the title Pope, however, rather than substitute the rather grandiose term Hierophant, which is sometimes used, or even High Priest. I feel that these take us too far away from the original meaning of a public figure of religious authority. The Pope is a figure we are all familiar with, even though he has limited impact in today’s world, compared to Renaissance Europe. As I have mentioned, the papal figures were too much for some Protestant regions, which replaced both cards with the classical deities Juno and Jupiter. I have retained the High Priestess, as the Grimaud pack does, rather than use versions such as the female pope or Papess, both odd and somewhat clumsy in English. Although female pope might match Pope as nomenclature, I believe that High Priestess represents her function better and is more in line with what was intended at the time, as we shall see shortly.

Tarot Triumphs: However clear the view from the top of the mountain, or in the layout of the Tarot cards, we as readers still need to take great care how we deliver our findings. It can be appropriate to show sympathy if someone is distressed, but it is important too to keep steering the reading with clarity. A Tarot reader swamped by emotion will ruin the whole process and may leave the querent without any firm ground to stand on. While a degree of empathy is welcome in a reading, too much can be disastrous.

Tarot Triumphs: I have always been drawn to divination. As a child, I diligently counted my prune stones after school pudding to see whom I would marry, and I gleefully made folding paper fortune-tellers, in which you could scrawl all kinds of possible fates for your friends. In my teens, the desire surfaced to know more about astrology, dream interpretation, and fortune-telling. This was before the new wave of interest in magical subjects, so there was not much material readily available. On holiday with a friend and her family, in a rented cottage in Wales, age thirteen, I pored over a moldy volume of dream interpretations that I’d found in the bookcase there, my chief entertainment during a week of rain. I begged to be allowed to take it home. Quite reasonably, my friend’s mother prevented me from doing so on the basis that the owner might be fond of the book herself. Later, I got my mother to buy me a fortune-telling teacup that we saw in a junk shop—one where little card images are scattered on the china, to be interpreted through how the tea leaves fall—though I never did manage to work it out properly. As for astrology, at that time I could only find very superficial magazine columns to work out what sun signs my friends and I were born under. But I had a kind of instinctive feeling that this all made sense. I was less interested in knowing the future than in discovering how to penetrate this otherworld, the place from which these magical messages seemed to come.
