The Hierophant~Number V~Taurus
The High Priest~Speaker of Truth~Keeper of Secrets
The Hierophant is symbolic of belief systems, groups and rules within a group. He is a religious figure and represents an official “teacher” within the Church, school, teams, companies, and clubs as well as one who rigidly attends to facts, structures, and procedures within these groups. Either the need to conform may be indicated or be aware of restricting perspective of others in a position of religious authority. Being part of the establishment and staying within convention is another possibility. Speaking the truth and listening to ones inner voice offers important guidance.
