Who is the Teacher?

The question isn’t who is going to let me, its who’s going to try to stop me

In Numerology and Tarot

THE HIEROPHANT

Represents May

(Key 5) The Spiritual Teacher.

Religious beliefs. Conformity. Tradition.

 

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” ― William Arthur Ward

 

WHO IS THE TEACHER?

Traditionally this card represents ‘a’ Spiritual Leader. 

I have to be honest, I’ve really struggled to make sense of this. I am a person who values my own (and others) free will and I refuse to follow the constraints of ‘one’ particular religion. I have examined and learned from many different religions and spiritual guides.   

Let’s be real, this ‘old school’ card may have lost touch with our generation. Personally, I prefer to see this card as representing the ‘many’ sages who have awakened our inner awareness.

 

TRUTH SEEKER

Where have you looked to gain further knowledge?

Call off the search party.

Learn from a legend.

Your inner self, your inner knowing and your own intuition.

A truth seeker is one that has learned from many teachers and from their own searching and uses that knowledge to work in the present.

 

‘Blind obedience to authority is the greatest enemy of truth’ ~ Albert Einstein. 

 

CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO

That being said, In all likelihood ‘The Hierophant’ may represent society’s expectations. A true teacher (to me) is not one that follows into the hierarchy or patriarch. I believe we should foster a community in which we are all encouraged to offer our own gifts to create  a supportive and stable community. 

 

ASK YOURSELF

At the end of the day, you would do well to ask yourself;

What are you curious about learning?

Where does your intuition lead you to find those answers?

Are you in a position to provide this for someone else?

 

CURIOSITY IS A POWERFUL FORCE

I was blessed with some of the very best teachers and I still love to learn.

How about You?

 

‘The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see’

– Alexandra K. Trenfor

 

The connections between Numerology, Astrology and the Tarot have been tested through years of research and application.
