found tarot: the hierophant

The Hierophant

I can hear some of you wondering - why not the magician? While there are many fine strong images that come from The Hierophant, for me the basic difference in the two images is this: The Magician represents relying on your own spirit to understand your beliefs, The Hierophant represents relying on formula, ritual and rite (not a bad choice, as long as it does not keep you from examining your own "why."

having a belief system, sharing a cultural heritage, learning a tradition, honoring ritual and ceremony, following a discipline

conforming, following the rules, taking an orthodox approach, staying within conventional bounds, adapting to the system, going along with the program, doing what's expected, being part of the Establishment

identifying with a group, joining an organization, working as part of a team, feeling loyal to others, being in an institutionalized setting,getting an education, becoming informed, studying and learning
