Tarot Card Meaning Hierophant Teaching Divine Creations is about the Pope like man or Guru. In Tarot, he is the archetypical personage of a spiritual teacher. He teaches a ‘spiritual ideal’ that he, nor any other human can ever actually meet.
Historically, the Hierophant has always had two main disciples who serve him. One who is responsible for ministering to the Divine Creations here in the Earthly realm. The other is responsible for the mundane, material welfare of the Church here on Earth. Both disciples are his trusted loyal assistants.
The Hierophant Card in Tarot depicts a Pontiff like figure who is the intermediary between man and the Divine. He stands for the ideal that human beings are ‘Divine Creations’, and that he is their link to the Spiritual world. That without him, there would be no possible communication between the Heavens and Earth. The Hierophant is always a ‘mediator’ between a God and man.
Tarot Card Meaning Hierophant Teaching Divine Creations says that in spite of the high idealism of the Hierophant’s teachings, somehow man just never is worthy enough before the god. Perhaps this is due to the Hierophant’s withholding of valuable spiritual info. Of course, he always postpones the higher sacred knowledge for another time.
An Hierophant can be either a man or a woman. Historically, there has been few women who were Hierophants. It has always usually been a man. This man has always been a married man with many children. His children assured the stability of the Kingdom of Earth, and the continuance of the Hierophant’s teachings. However, up until a relatively recent history, The Hierophant of the Roman Catholic Church must now stay a bachelor. The common of the mortals no longer wants to live under tyranny.
Hierophants have a dual nature. On one hand, the Hierophant is beloved by many, when his positive side shines brightly. On the other hand, the very same many people despise him – when his darker side becomes clear. Historically, a Hierophant is reputed to be a fraud. He claims to have an higher moral standard and belief, which is above everyone else on this Earth. However, his own behavior does not conform to it.
