Various guides and counselors come to the Fool’s aid on his journey. We now meet the one who is known as the Giver of Wisdom. In ancient Greece he was known as the “Revealer of Secret Things” while in the Tarot’s Major Arcana he is called “The Hierophant” or The Pope- the masculine counterpart to the High Priestess.
He himself has endured much physical and emotional pain so he can relate to our own suffering making him an empathetic leader or mediator. As our connection to the intellectual, instinctual, and spiritual world, “The Hierophant” offers instructional help, wise council, and spiritual advice. In other words, he has the keys/ answers to the mystical Truths. While willing to reveal that which is hidden, he reminds us that we must ultimately discover those Truths for ourselves.
