The Hierophant represents the sacred secrets that are or will be revealed. He is the religious leader and the moral and social conscious that the Emperor relies on. He represents the bridge between human and the Divine and all of the traditional systems here on Earth. He governs all human milestones between birth and death and is deeply traditional and sometimes rigid with existing systems.
The Hierophant and the Emperor are interlinked as the Emperor can not exist without the former. The Hierophant gives the Emperor a self-conscious making him less likely to destroy what it is that he wants to create. The Hierophant is the ‘church’ and the Emperor is the ‘state’ and in Tarot, church and state are not separate.
If you receive this card, consider testing the boundaries of traditional aspects in your life. In order to evolve, we must avoid dogmatic thinking.

The Universe is reminding you that in order to move forward with your aspirations, that you need to move on, and you know exactly what that means. This represents a new stage in your life that you are about to embark on and it is time for you to give it the full amount of attention that it truly deserves. You must leave your comfort zone and dedicate yourself to the process. This is the time for unwavering focus and determination. Remember, that just because you leave something behind, it does not mean that you can’t one day return to it. It is just that for today, it is not serving your best interest. People in your life may not understand why you are making this decision, and by default, try to convince you otherwise. Trust that you know the way and realise that it is your journey and not theirs.
Love and Light,

Card Deck: The Oracle of E by Pam Grout, Colette Baron-Reid
Look into yourself for your personal sense of creative expression and allow yourself to become possessed by the creative Spirit. This will keep you from the stress caused by juggling too many things in the air, which will inevitably lead to the trickster monkey bursting your bubble causing you to drop everything. How many of us have made stupid mistakes as a result of being over-stressed?
The Angel of Emergence signifies that there is going to be a rebirth for you, which is just in time for Spring. She is telling you that you are about to experience a wonderful emergence and transformation in your life. For a while now, you’ve known that you weren’t being your true self as a result of being concerned that it will offend other people; however, now is the time to let your inner beauty shine. Worship yourself for the talented and wonderful person that you are, and embrace your newfound confidence. This is the required next step for you manifesting your ideas – a gift that is being brought to you by the Goddess of Nature. Your dreams are starting to materialise and it needs an ounce of confidence to push what once was an idea into the physical realm.
Love and Light,
The Emperor makes up ‘the state’ and is the Fool who is yet to become spiritual. He relies heavily on the Hierophant to remind him of his spiritual responsibilities. The fire shows he rules over the globe he holds with an iron fist and gets shit done. He will not accept anything less than balance and order. He is a warrior that will battle for what he believes in and a tyrant that looks after his own. This is demonstrated by the ram, which is the symbol of Aries – the zodiac that is governed by Mars and the energy of war. The colour red demonstrates his will and the desire to make to make things happen. Note that he follows the Empress. The seeds planted by the Empress will be grown by the Emperor.
He is a reminder that sometimes you have to be a bit ruthless with control. You need to structure yourself to own yourself. Make sure to set goals to keep your fantasies in check and to become the master of your own destiny.
Focus and discipline will set you free.
The We Are The World card represents the need for all of us to share the riches and gifts the world gives us in order to nurture and feed the whole. The continuation of sharing eventually leads to the acknowledgement that we are all one collective. We begin to embrace our humanity and with that comes peace and joy, which leads to ultimate prosperity. This is depicted by the people holding hands and dancing with each other. If you receive this card, you must ask yourself…are you being selfless? Am I contributing to the collective?
