Tarot Card of the Week; The Hierophant

HierophantTarot of the Week: Aug 22 – Aug 28, 2016
The Hierophant

This wonderful card from the Housewives Tarot represents the Hierophant.

Back in the old days when we needed information, we could consult our programming guide and then switch on one of these big huge RCA TV sets and we could watch those cathode ray tubes come to luminous life; transmitting information, news and entertainment right into our living room.

The Hierophant brings important information

No need to adjust your rabbit ears or wiggle your antenna for better reception because this week information is coming to you, the message will be loud and clear- but are you willing to look at the information and take it in even if it’s not what you expect or want to hear?

The element of this card in focus for the week is that of knowledge, of expanding information, of getting answers and truths. You’ve been searching for answers and now you’re finding information and clarity in the very things that have impacted you most and are especially relevant.

Information comes in different ways

New information could come to you in conventional ways (and good old fashioned study and educating yourself) or through information you research on your own,  but it might also arrive in the form of an intelligent and helpful mentor or friend who helps you on your way.

In the traditional Tarot, the Hierophant represents a spiritual teacher, someone who helps relate sacred or religious information -therefore serving as a most noteworthy bridge between mankind and the divine. Some of the information flowing to you this week may serve to be practical and trusted guidance that knits the truths in your soul with the practical things you must do, know or act upon.  Don’t forget:  spiritual teachers often wear the most interesting disguises:  mailman, coworker, best friend, or even someone you’ve been having trouble with.

Don’t be scared to learn new things

It seems like we sometimes shy away from information because we’re scared we won’t like what we see or hear, and yet we lose out on important opportunities and chances because of those fears.  For example, we might not want to ask a partner what they’re thinking or feeling because we’re afraid to confront rejection or we might be scared to follow up on a job or opportunity.

This week, however,  you’ll see that head-in-the-sand fear doesn’t help you progress as much as knowledge, and also that ultimately whatever is illuminated is going to help you change things for the better, it’s going to help you be a better version of yourself and most of all it’s therefore  going to actually help you get things DONE!  While information doesn’t always tell us what we want to hear, the truth illuminates the heart and lights up possibilities much better than staying sheltered every could.

There are two ways to see illumination and clarity – which will you choose?

As you go about your week remember that there are basically only two states a person can be in; either in the intention to PROTECT ourselves and to control the world around us, or in the intention to LEARN about the world, ourselves and others… where we instead let go and allow things that are mysterious, wonderful and powerful to enter our hearts. Which way will you choose this week? How will you approach the information you receive? Will you try to protect yourself and hide, or try to control yourself and others – or will you finally embrace new information with curiosity and attempt to more deeply understand your position?

Most importantly, information can be a gateway to your higher forms of consciousness, and information can be fun and entertaining ( therefore it might even help YOU be the source of information and be a mentor for someone else! ) but ultimately – how you take it and how well you use it is all up to you.
