General meaning: It may be best to follow the established rules at this time. Don’t rock the boat – instead, go with tradition. Feeling confused about a situation? A visit to a wise counselor or teacher can help you sort that stuff out. Sometimes a spiritual perspective is what you need to get back on track. Been really bad? Get your arse to confession and stop that nonsense. Often The Hierophant can indicate a religious ceremony like a wedding or baptism – so if your honey is acting reluctant, be patient. You may get to that altar in due time.
Reversed: Time to fight the man! Conformity goes out the window and a new order is ready to rumble into place. Question EVERYTHING. Don’t accept the standard way. This is time for revolution, even if only a personal inward one. Break the rules and think for yourself. Problems with authority. Feeling like an outcast in your tribe. Rebellion. Originality. Don’t be a biter.
Affirmation: “I embrace traditions both old and new.”
Theme song: “Authority Song” by John Mellencamp
Journaling prompt: Think back to a time when you had to follow the rules and fit in. Was that challenging for you? Or were you able to find a way to do this with ease? Get your journal and write about authority figures and rules.
