Family, Friends & Relationships:

This is also a card that is very much about spirituality – everything from traditional religion to earth-centered spirituality and any other spiritual notion that you can conceive of. There may be a tension between your idea of spirituality and the ‘right thing’ and the ideas of others around you. Stand up for your own beliefs. The ‘rules’ and the ‘system’ of doing things are probably playing a major role now. Rituals of any sort will be helpful to you now, even if it’s just ‘a movie with friends every third Saturday.’

Card Meanings: Beliefs, Bonded, Conformity, Religion, Marriage, Commitment, Conventional, Traditional Values, Mercy, Traditional Institutions, Inspiration, Social Approval, Forgiveness

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.

Elements of the Psychic World
Book Details
Elements of the Psychic World: According to records the activity began with streaks of animal faeces or manure appearing on the floor of the house. A young boy, Dean, was blamed; however, when the boy was out of the house the stains continued to appear, proving that he was not the cause. Soon the activity increased: windows were smashed, objects were thrown and fires broke out. This time the focus was identified as 11-year-old Dinah McLean, an adopted child of the family.

Reversed Cards: Here in the protection aspect, you may find yourself feeling a little lost, possibly a little detached from your own life. This is normal when going through a major point of karmic expansion. It seems like things around you are getting worse, not better, and it is hard for you to hold the idea in your head that this is all for your highest good. But no one said the spiritual path was the easy path. In fact, it is one of the hardest journeys you will take. Why do you think the Hierophant sits in the very first row of the Fool’s journey? Because the lessons he teaches you will take a lifetime to learn. So if this card has shown up in your daily draw or current spread, take heart that this chaos is less random and more strategic than you might imagine. Allow yourself to stay detached and just let it all roll on by. Because the great thing about the energy of the five is that it never lasts long.

Portable Magic: This set of correspondences has stood the test of time, and has much to recommend it. I have no hesitation in using it as the foundation for Tarot magic since I believe that it is, in the main, correct. However, it should not be regarded as perfect or unchangeable. Aleister Crowley did not think it so, even though he accepted the teachings of the Golden Dawn as a received higher wisdom. In his own work on the Tarot, The Book of Thoth, he made an inversion of the associations of the trump the Star with those of the trump the Emperor, to correct what he perceived as an imbalance in the Golden Dawn arrangement of correspondences. He did not take this step on his own authority, but followed the directive of his holy guardian angel, Aiwass, who made the statement in a work psychically received from the spirit by Crowley that ‘Tzaddi is not the Star’ (see Crowley, The Book of Thoth, 9; also his The Book of the Law, 26) .

Portable Magic: When you are finished interacting with your subject, take up the cards one by one in the reverse order to the way they were laid out and shuffle them. Taking up the cards breaks the reciprocating ray between the two significators and closes the portal. Shuffling removes the associations of the ritual from the cards and cleanses them for their next ritual use.
