“The Hierophant” Following Traditions versus Playing by Your Own Rules
The appearance of the Hierophant as an influence can indicate the need to weigh the actions of your ancestors against what you need in the present moment. When I see this card in a spread, I must ask myself, “Is this working for me?”
If there’s a behavior, habit, tradition, or practice that you’ve had for a long time and you now realize that it’s not bringing you joy, it’s essential to ask, “Why are you still doing it?”
If you have a tarot deck of your own, try meditating with the Hierophant card and the Hermit card. These cards can help you understand when it’s time to establish new rules for yourself. Setting your own boundaries and knowing why you are doing something keeps you from getting stuck in a rut. Being able to get away from toxic influences (The Hermit) and recharge for a while can really make an impact on your mental health.
If you are looking for good crystals for this type of work, consider smokey quartz, Tibetan jet, Shungite, and obsidian. If you have access to black walnuts, make a habit of keeping one on you at all times. They help cut away connections which no longer serve us.
What are Tarot Cards?
It’s believed that tarot cards date back to the 1400s in parts of Europe. The wealthy classes in France and Italy used Tarot cards initially as a parlor game. About three hundred years later, our ancestors began assigning meanings to specific cards and designing layouts to better understand their fortunes.
There are 78 cards in a traditional deck of tarot cards. Although the cards are very different from their original counterparts, the tarot is still important for connecting with the higher self and receiving insights from the divine.
