Card 5-The High Priest/Hierophant

The High Priest (Hierophant) represents the God on earth. He is the Old Horus, or the Old Arthur. As the Emperor is the judge in the stern sense, the High Priest is a judge in the severe sense. His law is will and there are no second chances with the High Priest.

The High Priest is located between the spheres of Chokmah (Wisdom) and Chesed (Mercy). His wisdom is self learned, and though he connects mercy to wisdom, his attitude is bullish and stubborn. His decision is law. He is the letter of the law, where as the Emperor is the spirit of the law. Where as the Emperor's decisions were just, the High Priest's decisions are purely his way or the highway.

When the High Priest is drawn by itself or within a spread he is advising that strict adherence to rules is necessary. He may be foreshadowing a possible legal agreement or contract where you may want to read the fine print before you sign. He could possibly be relating spiritual rules/adherence but because of where he sits on the paths of the Tree of Life the interpretation relates more to matters on earth or in the physical realm rather than the spiritual realm.
