Learn to read tarot - The Hierophant

This is my tarot reading blog to help you to learn the meanings of the tarot cards quickly and easily, using visual, audio and kinaesthetic cues.  I like to use the traditional Rider Waite tarot cards as the symbology is so beautiful.

The Hierophant

The Hierophant is card number 5 of the major arcana, this can be a card of conflict or choosing to change direction. It is the energy and balance of the four plus one. It is associated with spiritual growth.

The Hierophant has Taurus energy the strength and power of the bull, with Venus - a love of beauty and luxury.

The Hierophant wears blue, white and red robes so is associated with communication, purity and knowledge.

He wears a 3 tiered crown, representing the conscious, unconscious and super conscious.

The Hierophant is the Pope, the father of kings, the governor of the world. He holds a sceptre of sovereignty.

He has power and teaches spiritual knowledge to the initiates - with this card you could be the Hierophant or an initiate who is gaining knowledge as a student.

The Hierophant is a preacher, he can be associated with marriage. This card is associated with tradition, rituals, joining a group. You may have joined a religious group, a cult, something that is related to spiritual studies.


I have added some tarot quizzes to TikTok under Mysticpolly. Enjoy!

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 in your life.
