The Heirophant Reversed


Breaking rules. Rejecting orthodox ways and tradition. You begin to think for yourself for once and make your own decisions and live by your own rules. It can be time when you deliberately search for a new path to take, aware that the path you have tread for so long is not the only one.  There is a great sense of freedom and a lifting of oppression. The Hierophant reversed may represent the priest or nun who leaves their order or it may suggest that you have changed religion. Following another set of beliefs instead of the old ones. You may be questioning authority or behaving immorally. You may leave school, college or any formal training institute. It is a time of feeling and acting rebelliously.

An unconventional relationship, such as a homosexual relationship or a couple who reverse the traditional roles such as stay at home fathers while the mother works.  You may decide not to go with tradition and not marry.  You may be causing a scandal by behaving inappropriately or immorally. Perhaps you have done something that you feel ashamed of. You may feel you have sinned and fear or face excommunication from friends, family and even the community at large.  You may have impure thoughts about another. Infidelity and indiscretion. Your conscience may be bothering you.

On the other hand you may be dreadfully clinging to  old habits and beliefs. You may feel sanctimonious,  righteous and arrogant. He can suggest that you are extremely judgemental where others are concerned. With blinkers on you go through life thinking that you know it all and feel superior to others.

When The Hierophant reverses he can represent the disgraced spiritual leader or someone of importance caught in an uncompromising act. The Health Guru could be caught eating McDonalds or the Spiritual leader who absconds with church funds.
