Divine intervention? Let’s dial it back a bit. For single querents The Hierophant denotes that you may be ready to finish your wanderings and go in search of a committed relationship.

To find such a partner it is best to look in places that value benefit of the community over benefit of the individually. Consider volunteering at local charities.


For querent’s in a relationship The Hierophant indicate it’s an opportune time to explore traditional aspects of a relationship.

Meeting the other’s parents, discussing future plans and where you see yourselves in the next ten years lend to strengthening bonds for the long run.

Career & Money

The Hierophant is a knowledgeable soul that has gained wisdom beyond the obvious. He provides spiritual direction towards enlightenment.

When he appears it may be time to seek the advice of individuals well versed in the matters at hand, a good accountant can save you a lot of money, a career adviser can point out wonderful qualities you have that you overlook yourself.

As a person

The Hierophant is a person that believes in the greater good, that the needs of the larger community should be prioritized over the individual. He has a profound sense of the passing of time and because of this understands what really matters in life.

Often you’ll find him dishing out advice (although it may not have been asked for) and he may have a tendency stubbornly stick to traditional ways of doing things that may not be the most efficient.


The Hierophant is an excellent talisman to invoke:

  • harmony among a group of people
  • a connection with the divine
  • humility under public scrutiny
  • much needed wisdom
  • a sense of community
  • divine inspiration


The number 5 is often accompanied by the divine. In western convention it goes hand in hand with rituals of magic through the pentagram that denotes the five elements; Earth, Air, Water and Spirit. Aside from deep metaphysical and esoteric connotations it also reflects one how we interact with the physical world through the five senses (sight, taste, touch, smell, sound).

Broadly it poses the question of how perception of situations can differ from person to person.
