The Hierophant is an easy symbol to identify with. He mainly represents traditional knowledge. Spiritual teaching, understanding and aspiration. He is a teacher or a guide. He is a guru, a counsellor, an educator. He is more than the traditional priest figure but he does represent orthodox and conventional learning and methods. The card guides you to your journey of growth and change towards your highest self.
He can signal the presence or absence of truth and honest dealings in any situation.
These are basic card meanings. Please share your own interpretations. I would love to hear your thoughts.
