Guidance on religious matters and the need to find spiritual meaning in life.
The Hierophant stands for the world of belief and a deep trust that stems from this conviction of faith. In older times, he was considered one of the three protective cards of the Tarot, which basically gave the course of a matter a favorable tendency. There is much to be said for this understanding of the card, since the power of trust that it expresses can be related to the trust we have in ourselves as well as the trust we have in a deeper sense in our personal lives and the resulting trust in our future. Moreover, this card shows the path of ethics and virtue and stands for the personal resolve resulting from our fundamental moral values.
