The Hierophant as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card
Oracle Message: Square pegs don’t go into round holes.
At the very least today, you will either seek structure or be confined by it. Rules, rigidity & dealing with people who won’t budge – government employees, school administrators, doctor’s receptionists – you get the picture.
At the very best you will seek to understand higher values, esoteric principles & question religious doctrine. There is nothing to say here whether those questions are to aid your spiritual growth, or to tear apart the foundations of a religious upbringing.
Today you face structures of every kind, some you welcome, others you abhor. What is interesting is how you may not have been thinking about these things before, but now they are front and centre. Structure is important for life, dogma can ruin it.
