Daily Draw: Dreaming Way Tarot, The Hierophant
This is an earthy hierophant. Different from the traditional RWS rendition he has no acolytes and does not raise his hand in benediction. His plain but warm woollen clothes recall simple monastic dress rather than the elaborate vestments of high office.
The cross on the crown suggests he was ordained but it is interesting he has taken himself out of the structure of the church and into nature.
Sitting comfortably with a straight back, hands softly resting in his lap he appears to be meditating. Or is this teacher waiting patiently for a learner to come to meet him? Or both. What mysteries do those keys unlock? What growth is suggested by the earthy tone of this card?
