The Hierophant Tarot this card is a reference to a master and the process of learning practical lessons through the study of natural law. This energy of this card indicates an resource or agent that will reveal the secrets of life as well as the cycles of Moon and the tides and the connections between humans and the sky. Because monasteries were the only where one could study to read and write during the Middle Ages, a Hierophant was the person a student would petition for entry. He was the one who define the novice’s study.
Often pictured with the right hand raised to bless, the Hierophant is associated with the long-standing lineage of Melchezidek the initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who carries on the lessons. Shamans from every tradition draw upon this archetype. If it is revealed that Hierophant card appears reversed it could be an indication that you have brought an unneeded act of rebellion against traditional beliefs, ideals that have been held for a long time and spiritual beliefs that belong to your lineage. Consider that, without the steady influence of the tradition passed down from generation to generation it would be impossible to have a steady support system in which you would be able to stand up to the system.
Find out if you are biting the hand that is feeding you. Take care lest you damage your relationship with the Great Mystery. The Hierophant advises that you return to your position of a diligent student. Learn everything possible about the subject. It is important to make that knowledge part of you and have an active influence on your daily awareness. In this way you will slowly but gradually establish credibility in your field or chosen area of study. Earn respect and recognition through completing your studies and broadening your expertise. If you have the required experience you need, then revise your resume to ensure that others can appreciate who you are and what you bring to a scenario. Set your sights on the goal and be determined. You might be the one to be a master in your realm.
