The Hierophant

You may have had a change on how to lead your life as you are matured or want to secure things in life. It is possible that you may further your study or seek additional knowledge. Besides, you may be interested in religious principles, dharma, and astrology as well. For work, you are suitable for working in a systematic workplace, and you can work there for a long time as you do not like any change. If you have subordinates, they will behave well and work hard.
The Hierophant is very much about “doing the right thing.” You may be struggling with an issue and are unsure about what is “right” for you to do. Know that the answers are within you. Remember that the “right” thing is what is right for you also.
For Work, In careers, the Hierophant indicates a mentor or someone that is able to provide “inside” information in a company. This card can imply that you are networking or that you will soon meet someone that can guide you through the tradition of a company. You may find that a teacher or mentor of some sort that you have been needing appears in your life now…and/or you could be called upon to be that teacher or mentor for someone else. This is a good time to get involved with groups even if you don’t think of yourself as a “group person,” as you will find that you have much to learn from them (in a very positive way.) Work should be going very well provided you are able to be organized and work within the rules.
For Love, The Hierophant teaches a different kind of love in reference to relationships. This is a reverent love, almost sacred. That of doing “unto others what you would have them do unto you.” This is the love of charity, of helping your fellow man. If you have received this card for a love reading then there is something that you need to learn from giving up some of your time and energy to a charity. Romance also is likely to be going very well, although in a pretty traditional way (i.e. these energies will work best for you if you can conduct yourself in whatever way someone in your shoes is “expected” to be. Now is not the time to “buck the system” or to be unconventional any more than you have to be.
For Finances, This is a time to play by the rules and to use down-to-earth, normal, traditional ways to handle your money. Emotional issues come into the spread when the Hierophant is present. Many who experience some level of religious or spiritual restriction in one way or another are suffering some kind of energy block within their body. Seek the advice of bankers and professional money managers and/or people with more experience dealing with money than you have. This is a good time for investments, provided they are conservative and stable. This is not a good time for taking chances with money or going for “unusual” stocks, bonds, etc.
For Health, Health: Ritual of any kind is helpful to you now. If you have health challenges, discipline, order, and commitment – in whatever way that makes sense to you – is the way to go about it. “Traditional” therapeutic means also have a high chance of success now.
For Spirituality, You are very much concerned with spirituality now (even if you don’t have anything approximating a “traditional” religious belief. Make regular time, even if you don’t attend a “traditional” house of worship – to quiet yourself and allow your spirit some time to expand. What matters here is the regularity of it – whether it’s daily, weekly; whatever you can make time for. You will see changes in your life and outlook as a result of giving yourself this time.
The Hierophant symbolizes spiritual power, traditional values, and knowing how to act appropriately. As a spiritual mentor, The Hierophant offers kindly wisdom to all who seek it. The Hierophant is the archetype of knowledge, and education in its most accepted form.

in the reversed position, still very much about “doing the right thing.” In reversal, however, it indicates a more-than-normal level of confusion about what exactly the right thing is. The answers are within you… if, that is, you have enough information about the situations at hand. In this reversal suggests that you may need to dig a little deeper to find out “what’s what.” Remember that the “right” thing is what is right for you also you will have exactly the opposite experience. Instead of feeling compelled to follow a religious and spiritual order that is structured, you will feel more open or carefree. You will not feel weighted down by your earthly possessions because they do not own you. One caution to be aware of for the Hierophant reversed position is that you do not become overly superstitious, so much that it gets in the way of leading a happy and healthy life. The Hierophant in the reversed position can also signify being out of balance. Be careful of manic or overspending episodes, being too blunt or honest, or extending your opinion in areas where it is not wanted.
It indicates prudence, silliness and hypocrisy. There are rules but no knowledge of why these rules are important. The ego is without guidance. There is an inflexibility in the system and in the people of the system. Perhaps it’s an institution who controls information and the leaders make themselves rich while the poor remain poor. By locking away information and keeping people ignorant, the people remain powerless to change and improve the system.

The High Priestess

This card is a very spiritual card – often with sexual overtones. It can mean that you are in a phase where you are going to be much more physically attractive to others.
Your situation will still be vague and uncertain. You cannot expect what will happen. The only thing you can do is be patient, keep waiting and be ready no matter what the situation will be.
For work, if you have any frustration in your workplace, try to take things easy. There will not be many troubles if you work alone but if you work as a team, you may feel downhearted in getting cooperation from others. If you are waiting for news about job, there will be no opportunity on new job. If you are going to resign, you should wait for more suitable timing as you may be unemployed.
If you are in the process of (or even just thinking about) changing jobs then this is an auspicious time to keep your eyes and ears open for something new.
If neither of those scenarios seem to fit then it is possible that there is a lot of workplace gossip going on. Ignore it and certainly don’t get involved in it. Not always easy to do of course as it is human nature to gossip but stay away if you can.
For Love, this can be a magical, mystical time for love for anyone interested in love. If you are a woman, you may well find people literally throwing themselves at you. The problem is that you will attract both the good and the bad and it’s not always easy to tell which is which!
You have the power of femininity at your disposal at this moment in time and at first glance that may seem great, but there is a caveat. Don’t abuse that power or it may backfire on you. Use it wisely – it’s potent!
A note of warning with the High Priestess is that she can also be guiding you to seek out the truth in a relationship. If you have concern in your relationship it is exceptionally important to follow your instincts, but to do so in a way that is not a detriment to you or the relationship. Just because you have a feeling of insecurity does not mean that your partner is cheating on you. Often we are sensitive to specific issues but the situation is not as dire as it seems.
If you date women, you could well be interested in a woman who is distant and unapproachable and it may be that that is the way she will stay. Trust your instincts to let you know when you are chasing the unattainable.
For finance, your financial situation will not be stable at this time so you’d better be careful of spending money extravagantly. The High Priestess helps in matters of business and wealth in the sense that if you are about to get into a business with someone else, or are going through legal issues; she will help you to shed light on all that you are not aware of.
For Health, there may be information about your health that has not yet come to light. If you feel that something is amiss with your body, believe in your concerns and advocate for yourself. Don’t be fobbed off by the medical system and if your doctor isn’t helpful then you may need to see a different health care practitioner.
Trust yourself. If a procedure or test that is suggested to you doesn’t feel right then discuss it with your doctor. Don’t feel that you have to go through with it just because it’s suggested. As the television commercials are so fond of saying: “Ask your doctor if ABC is tight for you.”
Be sure that you are supporting yourself as best you can with diet, exercise, and vitamins/minerals.
For Spirituality, messages can come to you from all sorts of places. Make a point to look at spirituality in ways that you have not done before. That doesn’t mean that you need to attend different religious services or if you don’t currently attend any that you need to start.

You have received the High Priestess in the reversed position, this is symbolic that you are completely detached from your intuition. Messages are being sent to you, but you are experiencing a block due to a lack of desire and momentum. High Priestess reversed indicates blocked psychic abilities, and little to no awareness of the subconscious influences on our reality. Secrets are kept, answers are not found and instincts are wrong. She can represent an unpredictable woman in your life, with mood changes and hurtful remarks/outbursts. You might find it difficult to make decisions when this card turns up reversed. There is a loss of control and chaos often follows. There is a loss of knowledge and a kind of madness reigns. The best advice that the High Priestess in Reverse has to offer is that it is time to open up your chakras and allow the spirit to move through you. Meditate, meditate, meditate!
