A Hierophant is someone who interprets secret knowledge, and represents learning, often in a religious context. In readings,repparttar 122109 Hierophant represents learning fromrepparttar 122110 experts, or official institutions. This card can symbolizerepparttar 122111 fact that you face an internal struggle with reactionary drives or forces, and need to be more freethinking. It also puts you on warning that not all learning comes from dusty old text books.

The choice betweenrepparttar 122114 high ground and your base desires is yours, of course. How you make that decision betweenrepparttar 122115 base andrepparttar 122116 lofty reflects what sort of a person you are, asrepparttar 122117 easy route quite often turns out to be not so easy after all.

The Chariot isrepparttar 122118 next Tarot card we shall look at. At we believe that this card signifiesrepparttar 122119 need for positive control. This means firm decisions, not brutal ones. Self control is strongly marked with this card, as isrepparttar 122120 concept of victory. The Chariot, though, does not allow for win-win scenarios - there will be a loser in this episode.

Afterrepparttar 122122 Chariot comes Strength, and this is not just physical strength, butrepparttar 122123 inner qualities of perseverance, courage, determination and calmness in a crisis. These qualities arerepparttar 122124 ones that help you not to give up, and persistence isrepparttar 122125 message here. You must also note that too much strength can be counter-productive. Forbearance and patience can also be signs of inner strength.
