The Hierophant – Deviant Moon Tarot Deck
I. The Description of The Hierophant Deviant Moon Tarot
The Hierophant Deviant Moon Tarot is praying for the souls of the capital. His current position requires more spiritual use because religious beliefs control people like a doll in a pocket.
The Hierophant, also known as The Pope, is the fifth card in the Deviant Moon Tarot deck. When on the second card, we get to know The High Priestess, this card carries another spiritual meaning. The priestess is a woman who possesses knowledge, holiness, and purity while The Hierophant is the complete opposite, this man gives off a vibe of certain adoration.
If you look closely, Hierophant’s hand posture is unique. It can be present for prostrations or as blessings. According to the written records, Hierophant is the bridge between man and god. The cards in Major Arcana are always closely related to each other. As mentioned earlier, The Hierophant Deviant Moon Tarot is in the “trio of powers”. The reason may be because it reminds us of spirituality and belief.
In the east, it reminds us of the five elements. The number five represents power, center, rotation, and immortality. The Hierophant is also called the teacher of wisdom, conservative of tradition, and represents law and freedom. The number five in Latin also means “quintessence” or represents the human senses: smell, sight, hearing, taste, and feeling. It sounds contradictory, but it is duality, opposite, and harmonious in the way The Hierophant wants to show.
All the interference of power and divinity is clearly shown by the author of the Deviant Moon Tarot through the details of the wings and the color of the costume: the golden color of power and the red of life that is always flowing. In astrology, this card corresponds to Saturn in Taurus. The Hierophant’s head hat looks like a buffalo’s horn –Taurus and the crimson color of Jupiter.
When it comes to this card, unlike The High Priestess, it is far more powerful. Either this man represents an organization or there is a hidden organization behind this man. Since this card brings two sides to bridge heaven and earth, the communication between gods and humans is through this person. If this great man stands on the edge of heaven, he will be a leader, a missionary, and a spiritual worker.
On the other side, this man may also be the head of violent, anti-government organizations. Either way, he is more intelligent than ordinary people and powerful, assigning work to others. He knows the relationships well, clearly sees the situations that happen in the organization, society, or group.
However, looking at the positive direction that The Hierophant Deviant Moon Tarot wants to say, this man is always the one who transmits passion and arouses beliefs for others. If in the opposite situation, it can only be a misconception about the nature of things and thereby giving advice and teaching in the wrong direction for others.
