MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 5
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: TAURUS, JUPITER, MARS
The Hierophant card, Major Arcana, also referred to as the Pope, represents a mentor, teacher, spiritual counselor. He symbolizes marriage, unions, romance, meaningful relationships. He shows great mercy and goodness to all. He is very much like a teacher or a priest. He serves as a great inspiration. The Hierophant is certainly not one to buck proper authority. He is a conformist. He is a staunch and worthy defender of the tried and true. This card may be an indication that you could use the direction offered by a group, depending on your needs and situation. Embrace traditions and rituals, but always think for yourself or call upon someone you consider a mentor to guide you.
The Hierophant card signifies poor advice, single-mindedness and unconventional behavior. The card may refer to a rebellious individual, a nonconformist. It may show a departure from religious institutions, traditional universities or other dogma. It can also represent someone who is so narrow minded that he has become bigoted, with a disregard for any view other than his own. 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 discord.
