Finance, Money Matters Or Debt:

As with an upright meaning of this card, this is a time to play by the rules and to use down-to-earth, normal, traditional ways to handle your money. Gambling is not likely to pay off now in any form. Seek the advice of bankers and professional money managers and/or people with more experience dealing with money than you have. This is a good time for investments, provided they are conservative and stable. This is not a good time for taking chances with money or going for ‘unusual’ stocks, bonds, etc.

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
Tarot Triumphs: A word of caution, though: When I was getting acquainted with another form of card divination (later to become known as the Tree of Life Oracle, for which I wrote the handbook2), I decided to ask who would win the Grand National, the biggest horse race in the British calendar. I am not a betting person, but I thought it would be fun to have a go. I did a three-card reading, and two of the cards that turned up were called the Man of Blood and the Drunkard. I checked the list of runners. Aha! Red Rum was an outsider in the race—surely he would fit the cards rather well? I put some money on him. He won! (And, incidentally, he went on to become one of the most renowned racehorses in history.) Next year, a little guiltily, I confess, I tried the same thing. It didn’t work and I lost my money. The next and final year, I did the same, and lost yet again. The money lost just about canceled out money won.

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: 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.
