V The Hierophant
KNOWLEDGE AND STUDY
Now that we’ve met the Emperor, we have our plan. We try out our plan and it fails. That’s ok. Almost all plans fail. What do you do? You hit the books. Someone has learned the hard way so you don’t have to and if you’re open to this thinking, the Hierophant is ready to teach you.
This guy isn’t for everybody. First of all, he is orthodox - by the book, straight up and down. That doesn’t mean he has nothing to teach the independent mind, he’s just not interested in how you are going to do it your way, so drop it and check out a lecture. Seated between two grey pillars, he has figured out a little of the mystery of the High Priestess - the glaring opposites of black and white have come into balance. Why? so you can learn. Calm down, we can get back to the mysterious journey after we get a little knowledge of the coming terrain. ASTROLOGY WARNING: A TAURUS LIKE STUBBORNNESS. Almost levitating, the Hierophant perches on a stack of books, showing you clearly where the source of his power comes from. His staff represents ritual, which again, is not for everyone, but he will hit you with it when you stop paying attention. No curtain drawn, his temple shows the daytime sky behind him, more heights await. While some Hierophants represent the pope, I didn’t connect with the energy, so I thought a more Guru(non-charlatan), Master Yoda approach fit the world of the deck. Simple robes, simple belt, with all that knowledge as his decoration. His golden and silver keys will help you unlock both conscious and sub-conscious knowledge, so take notes.
V is the number of the Hierophant - 5 is a bump in the road after we evened everything out at 4 - time to do some research and there is probably a book for your situation.
