What is the Hierophant Card Meaning

The Hierophant card meaning in the tarot depends on a lot of things.
A Hierophant is a bridge between heaven and earth.
He or She is usually a Priest or Priestess who interprets the material and the immaterial.

They divine the spiritual (heavenly) from the non spiritual (earthly).
The Hierphant Card is a person who acts as a mediator.
He or She translates spiritual messages sent to us in life.
They are usually the person reading the cards.
Every tarot card reader reads different way.
So the Hierophant card meaning can vary.
Some tarot readers believe the tarot can predict the future.
However, this is not the true purpose of the tarot.
The tarot illuminates the path of the seeker or the person with a question.
Or someone searching for answers.
Spiritual Path of Hierophant
Tarot cards are not a fortune telling system.
The tarot is used for gaining insight and illumination into things we do not yet know.
It is a system of divining the material from the immaterial.
Or the known from the unknown.
For example, a spiritual seeker advancing on their path.
It is a way for seeing the path they are on.
A reader sometimes seeks out people to help illumunate their way.
Some of these people are called Oracles.
Oracles are people who work closely with divine energy.
Divine energies are called Neter (Neteru), Gods or Goddesses.
Oracles help deliver messages they receive from Neter or Gods.
Messages they receive through meditation, prayer or rituals.
Tarot cards help decipher information that is received from the divine.
The are messages of colors, symbols, numbers and images.
Reading the cards gives the Oracle feelings and inner prompting or intuition.
Performing a reading on someone, a reader would get feelings via their intuition.
Feelings that are transfered into information.
That information is given to the person who asked for the reading.
