Understanding the Reversed Hierophant Card in a Love Tarot Reading
In a love tarot reading, a reversed Hierophant card often signifies the need to let go of any fantasies and begin to look at your current love situation from a mature perspective. There is also a chance that someone may be giving you some bad love advice. On the other hand, you need to make sure you’re not acting too old for age. You may be losing your sense of individuality and authenticity. When the reversed Hierophant tarot card appears in a reading, it’s important to recognize where you just may be following the rules a little too rigidly.
Another aspect to the reversed Hierophant tarot card is the issue of dishonesty or a misrepresentation of the truth. This frequently comes up when there are issues surrounding new love interests. It usually indicates that a love interest may not be appropriately representing themselves in a truthful or honest manner. More investigation is necessary. In other words, don’t rush in. Take the time to really get to know this person. Just because they are not completely forthright doesn’t mean they’re a bad person. After all, if someone is really focused on impressing someone, they often fail to show people who they truly are out of a simple fear of rejection.
In a love tarot reading, a reversed Hierophant can indicate relationships that are currently stuck or have reached a stalemate. Perhaps there are too many rules, set ideas or judgments that are preventing the relationship from moving forward. In love tarot, a reversed Hierophant can refer to close-mindedness. To get the relationship moving again, you may want to seek counseling. Talking to a qualified professional can help you and your partner open up to new methods of communication and/or ideas. If you and your partner have become locked into preconceived ideas about your relationship, it’s often very difficult to find new solutions without input from an adviser.
On a final note, in some tarot readings, a reversed Hierophant card can refer to partners that do not have mutual ideas, values or beliefs. For example, if one partner is a democrat while the other is republican, political arguments are likely to come up. You may need to get more realistic about the compatibility of your relationship. Does your partner have all the qualities you want? Think about it. Remember, that not all healthy relationships are based on shared ideals. There are plenty that don’t. However, these relationships tend to be quite flexible and open. It’s vital that both partners feel respected and valued. This is the foundation for a healthy relationship.
