The Hierophant Tarot Meaning - General

The Hierophant is the leader of a community or a group (not individuals). Thus, this card can be indicative of being part of a community or group within your social or spiritual sphere.

The Hierophant believes in traditions, conventions and customs. This card can advise doing things conventionally and as expected. Do not experiment or be too bold about your actions or decisions.

The Hierophant is also a person of deep wisdom, and therefore could symbolize someone in your circle who could be worldly wise and available to offer you philosophical, spiritual or general life guidance.

You could also be meeting or interacting with people similar to the qualities of the Hierophant who are set in their ways and are resistant to change. This card could be indicative of traditional ceremonies or spiritual get-togethers being planned or conducted that you could be a part of.

There could also be an opportunity to study further and be a part of a renowned learning institution. If you have been thinking of studying, this is a card that encourages you to do it.

Let us look at the Hierophant in specific contexts of a love tarot reading and career tarot reading. Remember to apply all the above general readings to the below readings as well.

The Hierophant - Love

Love Reading for Relationships

The Hierophant can be called the marriage card of the Tarot Deck. Given the belief in traditions customs, this is a card that indicates marriage if you have been in a committed relationship and are looking to take it to a deeper level. This denotes deeper commitment to each other and wanting the take the relationship to the next level.

It could also signify that you and your partner share the same spiritual goals or are taking group classes or are part of a community on philosophy and spirituality.

If you are facing challenges in the relationship, the hierophant advises you to go back to the basics. Look for the old traditional ways to resolve the issue. This card emphasizes the need to focus on the importance of tradition and shared values to grow in a relationship.

Also, you might benefit from seeking help of established institutions or spiritual beliefs to strengthen the relationship.  Or potentially a spiritual counsellor who can help in giving you directions to take the relationship further.

Love Reading for Singles

For singles, the Hierophant in love signifies possibly meeting someone new who is spiritually inclined. If you are looking for your soulmate, it could mean someone entering your life who will be committed to you and wish to marry you.

The Hierophant could also be advising you to develop your spiritual self before seeking new love. You might need to hone your inner wisdom more through meditation and spiritual practices. Look for someone with whom you can find a shared purpose in the traditional sense of the term.

The Hierophant - Career & Finance

The Hierophant in career could be indicating a traditional workplace that follows an old school of thought in policies and procedures. This could be positive or negative depending on the supporting cards.

This card indicates that success can be achieved through team or group activities, not by being an individual player.

The Hierophant could be either you or someone around you. If it denotes you, you might be playing a leadership role here and are expected to steer the team forward. Following a conventional approach here without rocking the boat will help you. If it is someone around you, you could seek mentorship of this person to progress and grow in your career.

This is also a card of education. And hence if you have been thinking of taking up a course in an educational institution, this might be the right time to do so. Or this could also be about training and skill development in your place of work and suggests a need for you to seek those options.

Financially, it is advised to follow conventional forms of investing. Do not be too bold or experimental. E.g. if you are an equity investor, stick to it and keep the bitcoins and cryptos out. And if you are a fixed deposit investor, continue with those than taking risks with equity. Follow the conventional investing approach and do not steer away from established tried and tested financial principles.
