The Hierophant Card
When The Hierophant appears, it is time to embrace the conventional, for it suggests that you have a certain desire to actually follow a path which has been well established. The Hierophant advises that you return to the role of a meticulous learner. Learn everything you can about your chosen area. Let that knowledge become a part of you and an operative influence on your day-to-day awareness. In this way, you can slowly and steadily establish real credibility in your field or chosen subject. The Hierophant also believes in strong commitments. This is a good time for investments, provided they are conservative and stable.
The Hierophant Card (Reversed)
Things are confusing to you. You have lost your flexibility and also the feeling that you are in control. When the Hierophant appears reversed, he asks if there are beliefs in your own life that are keeping you in a state of rigidity. You are feeling an impulse to go against the rules, against social conventions, and against the way in which things are being done. This card may also be a warning that you should not partake in gossiping or slandering. There is a tendency for manipulation in a relationship and any distortion of the truth causes unhappiness. Be kind and changes will come.
