Tarot Meanings -The Hierophant

Rider Waite Tarot - The Hierophant


The Hierophant


I am the hierophant; I am the head of my sect.

I am here to awaken your spiritual intellect.

Orthodox religion, personal beliefs,

These are the subjects of which I am chief.

Finding meaning to life here on earth:

Death, forgiveness, compassion and birth.

Meeting the Hierophant at number five

Finding the reason that you are alive.


The Hierophant at card number 5 is a traditional, religious man, he is faithful to his belief system, not open to new ideas. He is spiritual and looks to the inner meanings of events around him. This person demands respect, through age and wisdom.

Most books on tarot do not give you many tips on how to interpret the card in different positions. Here are some ideas on how to interpret "The Hierophant' in different positions using the traditional Celtic Cross spread.

Card number one, Present Position:  the questioner is in a spiritual phase, questioning the meaning of life, learning from experience.

Card number two, Immediate Influence:  the questioner is being influenced by someone who is deeply religious, traditional or spiritual

Card Number 3 - Goal or Destiny  - The questioner is hoping to become more spiritual and focussed on the meaning of life or would like to become more religious.

Card number four,  Distant Past Foundation: many years ago, the questioner was religious or traditional or was influenced by a strong person with traditional beliefs

Card number 5, Recent Past Events: the questioner has met someone who is traditional and religious or has recently adopted those values.

Card number 6, Future Influence: the questioner will become more spiritual, traditional or religious or meet someone who has those characteristics.

Card Number 7, The Questioner: the questioner has the characteristics of the hierophant.

Card Number 8, Environmental Factors: there is someone or something in the questioner's life who has the characteristics of the hierphant.

Card Number 9, Inner Emotions: the questioner wants to be more introspective and examine the meaning of life.

Tarot Readings!

I started reading tarot cards many years ago when I was in college, I was studying business but my real interest has always been in psychology, astrology, tarot and dreams. I waited a long time to pursue tarot reading professionally. I do not understand how tarot cards work or why they work. I do not believe that you need special powers to read the cards but experience and an understanding of the symbols on each card opens the doors to a successful interpretation.

It is a good idea to be in a quiet place to have a tarot reading, to be able to free your mind of distractions and concentrate on an issue that you would like some insight into. Tarot cards can give you insight into situations and things that are happening around the questioner.

I have been a tarot reader for more than 40 years and will be happy to do a reading for you, the cost is $30 for 30 minutes or $50 per hour.  In UK: £20 for 30 minutes or £35 for 60 minutes. I use PayPal for payment and Skype to complete the reading. Please email me to set this up with your preferred time see below. mysticpolly@yahoo.com. Readings are for entertainment only! 

 In US Time: I am available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 2pm, 3pm, 4pm or 5pm Eastern Standard Time and Saturday 9 am, 10 am and 11 am EST. 

In UK time: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. Saturday 2 pm, 3pm and 4 pm.

Thank you!
