The Hierophant No 5
Good morning everyone. Today we are up to number 5 in the Major Arcana - The Hierophant. The Fool begins to change with the influence of his environment.
The Hierophant V
As the Fool ventures out to the wider world he encounters the belief and traditions of the culture around him. It is the beginning of his education. The number 5 is about change, progress and advancement. The Hierophant is also sometimes seen as the priest, educator, counsellor or advisor. He represents the organised belief systems that start to influence the Fool. This card portrays the four elements plus the power of the mind. The mind is the factor that makes us different. Originally this card signified religious guidance. Now it also includes other authority figures that we turn to for advice such as doctors, solicitors, accountants, lawyers or teachers. When the Hierophant appears in a spread it means that you or your client are seeking advice from these specialists. Occasionally it can mean that you are the one giving the advice or you may be involved in an educational institution in a position as a teacher or student. When the card is upright the information from this source is helpful.
