Does the Hierophant mean yes or no in a Tarot reading? How does this card help you get what you really want?
The Hierophant card means yes if (and only if) you are able to seek wisdom on the choices ahead. There’s the potential to get what you want but it won’t happen by itself.
A major arcana like this arrives for a reason and, if you let it, there’s some guidance on how to get what you truly want if we scratch below the surface of a simple yes or no Tarot reading and look at the deeper meaning of the card.
Does the Hierophant Mean Yes or No?
The Hierophant is an important card in the Tarot and often speaks to spiritual progress and wisdom. When asked a simple yes or no question, it’s a positive sign but only if you’re able to make some changes. It might be that there’s someone around you who can guide you onward or, perhaps, some deeper spiritual guidance from the Tarot itself.
Getting What You Want

Upright Hierophant as Yes or No Question
Yes, but take it slow.
The Hierophant is a symbol of tradition and institution. It’s a sign to stay the course and maintain our spiritual wisdom, tradition and conformity. Now might not be the time to make big leaps of faith into the unknown but, instead, seek to emulate those who have gone first.
Move slowly and surely. Look closely at both your physical and spiritual progression to make sure we are living in line with our values and guided by our true north.
Reversed Hierophant as Yes or No Question
No, not at things currently stand.
Reversed, this major arcana card has a different meaning. It becomes a symbol for breaking the status quo and this means change is going to be required in order to get what you want. You need to challenge the way you’ve been doing things because what got you here, won’t get you there.
The reversed Hierophant can also indicate a lack of freedom or personal belief. You might feel trapped by the current situation but things are unlikely to change if you’re just waiting around for it to happen.
Upright Hierophant as Yes or No for Love
Yes, for traditional relationships.
For your love life and relationships, the Hierophant is telling you that it is best to stay within the bounds of spiritual wisdom, tradition and conformity. Stick to what you know. It might not be the most exciting path in the short term, but it will be a stable one that leads to happiness in the long run.
If you’re being torn in another direction and the base advice of the cards doesn’t resonate with you then I’d really suggest consulting a full spread to get a deeper look at the situation.
Reversed Hierophant as Yes or No for Love
Yes, if you shake things up.
Reversed, the card is more a symbol of freedom. This can represent a need for freedom and personal beliefs to be expressed in your relationship. You may be feeling restricted by a current relationship or situations surrounding your ability to meet someone new.
The upside of this energy is that it can create a very passionate and exciting relationship, full of new experiences. If you are able to work through any challenges that come up, you may find yourselves with a very strong and lasting bond.
Upright Hierophant as Yes or No for Advice
Neutral. Take it slow.
If you’re asking for advice, the Hierophant card is telling you to stay on the course. Maintain the teachings you have been given and seek to learn from others more experienced for the things you want. Learn from their mistakes as much as your own. Stay within the lines you know will take you forward and do what you believe to be just and true.
It might be time for you to take a more traditional or orthodox approach to something in your life. This card is a symbol of stability and may advise you to stay the course even when things are difficult.
Reversed Hierophant as Yes or No for Advice
Yes, take charge.
As a warning, the Hierophant reversed could indicate that you are in danger of being too conformist or of blindly following someone else’s teachings without questioning them. It calls on you to use your own intuition and discernment when it comes to making decisions, especially about the course of your own life.
Be true to yourself, and don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. This is a time of personal growth and transformation if you allow it to be. Embrace what the universe puts before you and follow your own footsteps forward.
Upright Hierophant as Yes or No for Career and Finance
Yes, for traditional career paths.
If you’re asking about a traditional career path then the Hierophant is a fantastic sign. Walk the path forward and job interviews, promotions and financial abundance are in your future. It’s a sign to work with others and press forward constantly.
Now is not the time to make risky investments or decisions. Stay the course and keep to what you know will improve your situation.
Reversed Hierophant as Yes or No for Career and Finance
No, not if you keep going forward.
Reversed, the card paints a very different story. If you continue on the path you’ve been on you’re going to go around in circles. You are feeling pressure to behave in a way that is not true to yourself. Don’t let others take advantage of you financially or decide the path of your career for you.
Look to your own personal beliefs. Where do you really want to be putting your time and energy?
Hierophant for Trust: Should You Trust Them?
As trust this card tells us that it is important to be able to have faith in someone, but also be cautious at the same time. Upright, the Hierophant is the symbol of intuition and, reversed, it’s a symbol of freedom. It can be a sign that you’re stalling to make a decision but it depends on what you want to trust this person with.
Look at your connection with the person free from bias or wishful thinking. Are they a positive influence in your life? Can they help further your path? Make a decision based on what is right in front of you, not what you hope or wish for.
What Is the Hierophant Trying to Tell You?
This card indicates the need for ethics and personal integrity in your life. As a card of guidance, he can suggest that you look to your spiritual roots for wisdom and direction during times of upheaval or confusion. Look to people in your life who you can lean on and allow them to lean on you in times of need.
