In the highest spiritual context, the Hierophant represents a human being who has united all aspects of duality within themselves, coming to a point of high level development and growth. More often than not, such people turn up in teaching roles, in the spiritual and occult fields. The student of the Mysteries who is lucky enough to be adopted by a true Hierophant is blessed indeed. Perhaps I might be allowed to digress briefly to talk about spiritual teachers. Eventually most students come to a point where they have learned as much as they possibly can under their own steam. If they want to progress into the deeper realms of the Mysteries, they must find themselves a teacher. This is not as easy as it might seem. Many people profess to have sufficient knowledge to lead newcomers through the sometimes stormy waters of spiritual growth. However, it is important to ensure that the person to whom you trust your future development is exactly what they claim to be.

If you are currently seeking a teacher, bear these three things in mind: True Hierophants never tout for business. They trust the Universe to draw to them the students they are charged to teach. True Hierophants never tout for business. They trust the Universe to draw to them the students they are charged to teach. By the time you reach the point where you deeply yearn for a teacher, you will already have developed your skills somewhat. Therefore, you can trust your own feeling about a possible teacher. Never, ever, under any circumstances, commit to somebody about whom you have the slightest unease. I’ll get back to the subject now!!!! A day ruled by the Hierophant will be one filled with the opportunity to learn. It will be revelational, inspiring and interesting. If you allow yourself to be open to the forces that surround you, you WILL learn something important!

His appearance in a reading can show that you are struggling with a force that is not innovative, free-spirited or individual. Groups can be enriching or stifling, depending on circumstances. Sometimes we need to follow a program or embrace tradition, other times, we need to trust ourselves. So – pay attention!!!!

Development for Beginners: Step 6: Next comes the first visualization component. Keeping your eyes shut, tilt your eyes upward approximately 20 degrees. Form a vivid image in your brain (it can be of anything you want, but relaxing scenes generally work best, such as a sandy beach with gently lapping ocean waves). Visualization exercises such as this help stimulate the production of alpha waves in your brain.

Reversed Cards: The Hierophant in the mirror aspect gives you the opportunity to take stock of the holy people you have chosen to emulate. No matter if they include ascended masters such as Jesus, Buddha, or some other spiritual figure, such as Amma or the Dalai Lama, take a very close look at the way they lived their lives. Do you live your life in the exact same way? Are you truly being a reflection of their teachings or are you modifying it to suit your ego-based desires? This position is probably the hardest of the Hierophant’s reversed aspects. It is not easy to do a spiritual audit of one’s life and not allow the ego to get in the way, but if you have received this card in the mirror position, then that is exactly what you are being asked to do. At the essence of all faiths is the thread of compassion and love to all. There are no exclusions and no exceptions with the word all. As you do your spiritual audit, list where you have placed exceptions and exclusions, because it is there that people or situations are holding you back from living an authentic spiritual existence. As I said, this aspect is hard. It won’t come easily, and it sure won’t come quickly. You could say the Hierophant in the mirror aspect is the lifelong journey we all take in the egocentric material world.

Elements of the Psychic World: The deck of cards known as the tarot is divided into two parts: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The word ‘arcana’ is from the Latin word for secret. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards, each separately titled. These cards depict symbolic figures, such as the Fool, the Magician, the High Priestess and the Empress, elements of nature such as the Star, the Moon and the Sun, and human experiences on the spiritual journey as well as joys, hopes, fears and sorrows. The symbols are universal, drawn from legend and from magical belief. Typically the Major Arcana cards are subject to broad interpretations. In essence they are archetypes and their sequence from 0 to 21 is believed to represent the soul’s journey to awareness, the process of becoming whole or the alchemical process of spiritual transformation. Some have equated the Major Arcana with the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet and work them with the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life.

Elements of the Psychic World: Mathematician and astrologer Jerome Cardan (1501-1576) is thought to be the first to suggest that the wrinkles on a person’s forehead might represent a collection of indicators as to a person’s character and that no two people would have the same wrinkles. In 1658 his work Metopo-scopia was published in Latin by Thomas Jolly in Paris and later the same year a French translation appeared.
