The Hierophant – Money

This is a good time to find a good financial advisor (or just somebody having more experience dealing with money) and asking for help, with your budget, your business planning and organising your financial resources.

Taking financial risks it is not a good idea, for the next few days and weeks. A prudent behaviour is recommended, when we are talking about money and investments.

The Hierophant – Love

This major arcana is a good indicator of marriage. Most probably, you are mentally prepared for this next stage of your life and you have already met the love of your life. So, why to expect anymore? Propose marriage and enjoy hearing people talking about you two: „they got married and lived happily ever after“.

The Hierophant also tells you to remain traditional in love. Forget about innovation and experiment, at least for a few months!

The Hierophant – Health

The 17th century English poet John Dryden said that „we first make our habits, and then our habits make us”. This is particularly true when we are talking about health. The Hierophant’s message is to bring healthy habits in your daily life> healthy meals, physical exercise and enough sleep are the most simple, but also the most important.
