Meaning of The Hierophant V
The number five upsets the stability, conformity and structure of the physical world represented by the number 4. The Hierophant or High Priest is the male counterpart to the High Priestess. When the Hierophant turns up in a spread he is asking us to question our beliefs and convictions and to put them to the moral test.. We are asked to do the right thing. To be responsible spiritually and to seek wisdom and higher guidance. Some say this is a card of conformity, custom and tradition in a religious sense. I believe it is a card of spiritual action asking us to question our beliefs, customs and religion to see if they remain true to our being and to where we are now spiritually. Overall it is a card of responsibility in leading others and in providing advice to others. We are asked to be responsible and accountable for our actions.
