Hierophant Tarot Card Love Meaning

The Hierophant Tarot Card Love Meaning

Is the Hierophant a good card to get in a question about your love life?

The Hierophant is all about commitment. When the Hierophant shows up in your tarot reading it denotes there is a deepening in your security in your life. If you are asking about your love life the Hierophant speaks of a commitment that will make you feel secure. The Hierophant signifies the type of relationship where two people meet to discover who they really are. They can become so dependent on each other that they don’t know how to live without each other. This is the type of relationship that has every chance to go the distance. The Hierophant is, in fact, a very good card to get in regards to love, especially if a commitment is important to you.

The Hierophant provides the structure and security to go after the things in life you always wanted. You are encouraged to go after your dream, but not on your own, you are sharing a dream with your significant other. Together you will manifest something of both spiritual and material value.

Learn the traditional meaning of the Hierophant tarot card. 
The Hierophant denotes a relationship that is effortless and easy, especially in comparison to the Emperor relationship discussed previously. The Hierophant denotes two equal parts who become successful together.
The Hierophant often represents two people who are in a teaching/mentoring role and they are both passionate about sharing their knowledge with the world. They are two people who share a similar life purpose and have a special connection due to this. They encourage each other. They often end up travelling together, and they often stay very young at heart, always looking for a new experience to share with each other.

The Hierophant speaks of a non-resistance kind of relationship where you can relax. You share the same beliefs and values as each other and you don’t have to work so hard to impress the other person. You are winning even when you are not even trying. Your significant other can’t even imagine life without you, and you can’t imagine life without him/her. You are two equals who are best friends as well romantic partners.

The Hierophant often shows up in a reading when there is a wedding about to happen. If you are asking about your relationship the Hierophant denotes a secure and stable relationship.

    I asked about a relationship that fell apart due to external negativity and in which attempts at re-unification haven’t worked out thus far

  2. Inger Bråthen April 12, 2016 at 8:02 pm

    Hi Raym, I would do a celtic cross spread which looks at the whole situation. Let me know what cards you get and I will help you interpret.

  3. lore May 25, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    hy. i asked if he will return to me, i got the hanged man reversed and the hierophant reversed….can you help me understand it better pls?

  4. Inger Bråthen May 25, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    Reversed cards often indicate a no in the tarot.

  5. Victoria June 7, 2016 at 1:41 am

    I asked about the outcome of a potential relationship. We are not together . I got the Hierophant and 6 of swords. Does this mean that a relationship will happen ? I am confused by 6 of swords is this telling me to forget it and move on?

  6. Inger Bråthen June 7, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    Hi, I feel like this person is very set in his ways, and you are quite different people deep down. They show me you need someone you can communicate with. They show me someone coming into your life soon that is a very strong communicator, and I feel like you will be taken by surprise and be very impressed with this person.

  7. liz June 19, 2016 at 12:40 am

    I asked about love with a person I am interested in and received Hierophant as the likely outcome with Justice card right before it as what is going against for me. Other cards I had were Devil and The Tower as my fears and what is going for me. I am not sure how to read a 6 tarot card spread but anyone has an idea?

  8. Inger Bråthen June 19, 2016 at 5:41 am

    Justice tarot card shows up when we are want to Master something, and we are trying to be perfect. I believe the cards are telling you to trust more, and to be yourself completely with the person you like. If you are yourself, then the outcome looks really positive for you two. The hierophant is telling you that you two are very compatible with your beliefs and values. Devil and Tower confirm the Justice card in that you are advised to let Go,and Be yourself. Don’t try and be the perfect person around your love interest, this person really likes the real you….:)

  9. Gary July 23, 2016 at 8:56 pm

    Hi Inger,

    Will my Twin Flame Rose and I Reunite? If so when will we reunite?

  10. Inger Bråthen July 24, 2016 at 6:39 pm

    The cards are showing me most likely a no at this stage because they show me destiny is currently taking you on different paths.

  11. Sisy July 25, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    I’ve got 8 of cups, ace of pentacles and the hierophant when i ask about a relationship. We have one night stand, but i really like him, as a person. I don’t know about him, because he ask for my number but i forgot, so we lost touch, but he lives in the same city, so i hope we meet again. But i don’t know how he feel about me …

  12. Rosvita July 25, 2016 at 7:01 pm

    Hi!
    I asked about friend. We had misunderstanding and now he ignore me. And i wanna now is there still a chance to be friends again? I received king of swords, the fool and 6 od wands. Thank you 🙂

  13. Inger Bråthen July 28, 2016 at 7:00 pm

    Hi Rosvita. The cards look great for a renewal in your friendship. Looks like just a temporary hiccup…:) Cheers, Inger

  14. Sisy August 2, 2016 at 3:45 am

    Inger, please, don’t forget about me :))

    I’ve got 8 of cups, ace of pentacles and the hierophant when i ask about a relationship. We have one night stand, but i really like him, as a person. I don’t know about him, because he ask for my number but i forgot, so we lost touch, but he lives in the same city, so i hope we meet again. But i don’t know how he feel about me …

    Thanks so much

  15. Inger Bråthen August 2, 2016 at 5:02 am

    Hi, I feel the cards are telling you there wasn’t enough time for him to develop any specific feelings, and this card combination can also mean he is focusing his attention towards work and study at this stage. But if you live in the same city, chances are you will meet again 🙂 Cheers, Inger

  16. Tia August 2, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    Hello,

    i asked about a relationship. I’m single, but i really like this man who i met a month ago. He was interesting in me, but i was afraid to give him my number, stupid me :S. But we had some very good moments together :).
    I can’t stop thinking about him. And i got 8 of wands, 9 of wands and 3 od cups. Will we reunite again?

  17. Inger Bråthen August 3, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    Hi, Tia. The cards are saying it could happen at a social event. Give this spread a go: What are my chances spread…you can find it here: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/tarot-spreads-and-layouts/ This spread is really good when asking how likely something is to happen. Cheers, Ingie

  18. glittergirl August 4, 2016 at 1:39 am

    Hi, the guy at work is leaving soon and I asked whether we would go our separate ways (as in not crossing paths again). I drew the Hierophant card. Does this mean there is some type of unfinished business and would you say we would eventually get together?
    Thanks

  19. Lisa August 4, 2016 at 3:16 am

    Hello,

    I was asking the tarot for the results of a job interview and i got situation as it is ten of pentacles, course of action to be taken six of cups and new situation that will evolve seven of swords. What does this reading mean?

  20. Inger Bråthen August 5, 2016 at 5:35 am

    Hi, Ten of pentacles and Six of cups indicate you will feel at home there. Seven of swords is a bit of a wildcard, as this card can indicate that you will end up going to the competitors of that company.

  21. Ray August 12, 2016 at 4:11 pm

    Hi Inger. Would be very grateful to you if you could give me some advice. Am in a relationship with someone since 18 Months. But in the last 4-5 months we have broken up twice (for a month each time) and gotten back together again, because we are both head strong, stubborn and very sensitive. 3 days ago we broke up again. I asked the tarot if we would get back together again and if she loved me deeply and I got the Heirophant card. I’m very confused since i’m told this card means permanence and settling down, but we don’t seem to be anywhere near that. Can you help with advice on what the card is showing and what it means? Thanks, in advance.

  22. Inger Bråthen August 13, 2016 at 5:37 am

    I believe the Hierophant is telling you to have faith in your relationship. The hierophant is a 5 in numerology, and the number 5 often feels a bit boxed in, and it wants more freedom. The Hierophant has freedom through discipline, and it focuses on having a purpose. You must find what it is that you have in common, that gives you meaning. Free yourself from the obligation of having drama in the relationship. This only occurs as you haven’t yet found what are both really seeking. Go deeper, and find that something special you can share together.
    Blessings, Ingie

  23. VC August 24, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    Hi Inger,

    I asked if me and my ex will be together again b’cos we broke up recently due to third party interference. I got King of Swords/6 of Cups/Page of Pentacles.

    Thank you

  24. Inger Bråthen August 25, 2016 at 2:09 pm

    Hi, VC. I believe the cards are telling you that you will heal, and move on….and most likely quicker than you think….

  25. Kristina August 26, 2016 at 12:29 am

    Hello Inger,
    I asked what to I need to do to get my ex back after 10 years. 10 years passed and I still miss him. That was me who broke up with him. He is single now, we talked just once half of year ago, he lives in different state now. I know it’s immature but it’s very important for me. I pulled Death, 6 of wands and Ace of Wands (sex?). But Death?! Very confusing. Please help me.

  26. Inger Bråthen August 26, 2016 at 7:19 pm

    Death is the card that reminds us that certain things are beyond our control. Your ex has free will…so this relationship might belong in the past.

  27. Mary August 28, 2016 at 4:03 am

    Hello Inger.
    I had asked about my current relationship which is very confusing and I wanted to get some answers. I got Tower as a near future card and Hierophant as a final outcome card. Does it mean that my current relationship will be over soon and I’ll meet another person or Hierophant card represent my cured guy? I’d really appreciate your help in interpreting these cards because this man means a lot to me but I don’t think that he feels the same. Thank you so much in advance!!

  28. Inger Bråthen August 28, 2016 at 4:59 pm

    Hi, Mary. I don’t believe it means your relationship will be over because the Tower in my experience often shows up when we are stirred up emotionally, but it is rarely as bad as what we think it is. The Hierophant as outcome card often mean you will find your ‘comfortable roles’ within this relationship, but it is important also to allow individual freedom, or conflict soon arises. The Hierophant operates foremost on trust 🙂
    Cheers, Ingie

  29. Michelle August 29, 2016 at 8:50 am

    Hello Inger

    I asked the tarot about an old friend who I reconnected with and we go out from time. Even though we have been platonic I’m starting to have interest in him. I pulled the Heirophant card for a love tarot does this mean possible commitment or.marriage?

  30. Inger Bråthen September 1, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Hi, Michelle. Yes, the Hierophant denotes a very traditional relationship like marriage or a strong commitment.

  31. Eva October 5, 2016 at 6:30 am

    Hi Inger, my parner and i broke up but he has been giving me mixed signals – he talks of things we could do together in the future and occasionally buys me the odd gift but also seems dead set on us not being together.
    In a celtic cross reading, i got the 5 of wands in the future position and then the heirophant in the outcome position… could u shed some light on the meaning of this reading please? Many thanks xx

  32. Inger Bråthen October 5, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    He might be afraid of commitment….let me know how you go with the Estranged lovers spread I sent you above….

  33. Wed October 5, 2016 at 8:00 pm

    Hi Inger! I would be grateful if you could tell me will I reunite with my ex or is it over forever? Thank you!

  34. Inger Bråthen October 6, 2016 at 4:22 am

    Hi Wed. I recommend you do the ‘Estranged lovers’ spread…it is found here: http://eepurl.com/ciH6zj

  35. Aman October 6, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    hi Inger

    I had a question if the person of my choice will make me his choice for marriage. i got the hierophant card. what does it predict?

    Thanks and regards
    Aman

  36. Inger Bråthen October 7, 2016 at 4:39 am

    Hi, Aman. The hierophant card is a card that symbolises marriage, so if you only pulled out one card, and it was the Hierophant, it could mean marriage. I would lay out more cards to see if the Hierophant is being supported by the other cards, which gives you more of a yes/no answer…:) Let me know what cards you get….

  37. Wed October 8, 2016 at 11:24 am

    Hi again Inger! I did estranged lovers spread and it said : main obstacle – queen of cups. Chance to reunite – the fool. How compatible are we – Prince of cups (that’s my card). Future influences – 6 of cups. Destiny of relationship – the moon, 10 of cups. I was using Crowley’s toth tarot deck. What do you think what will be the result? Thank you so much.

  38. Inger Bråthen October 8, 2016 at 7:03 pm

    Was there a seventh card there as well…? 🙂

  39. Wed October 8, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    4 of discs, moon and 10 of cups. Sorry, my bad 🙂

  40. Rhiannon October 9, 2016 at 7:42 am

    Hi Inger, I have a huge crush on someone and did a three card spread. I pulled the Hierophant card for “the situation,” the Judgment card for “advice” and the 2 of cups for the “outcome.” What could this mean?

  41. Inger Bråthen October 9, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    The cards line up very well, and denote you are compatible 🙂

  42. Inger Bråthen October 9, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    Hi, Wed. There are a lot of cups which denote there are feelings there, however, I there are a lack of 2s, which often mean the seeker will end up with someone other than the person they are asking about….Could be why Queen of cups shows up in the block position.

  43. Amanda October 10, 2016 at 7:09 am

    Hi Inger,

    I hope you can help me get a better understanding about two cards I’ve got in a love reading.
    It’s important to say, that the man I fell in love with says, that he doesn’t want anything serious. But when I asked the cards about his feelings towards me I got “The Hierophant” which I can understand is a great one in love readings? Then after that I asked “How’s the future going to be like for the two of us and our ‘relation'” and I got the Three of pentacles?

    Can you help me sum up, what this would mean?

    Thanks

  44. Inger Bråthen October 11, 2016 at 5:05 am

    Hi, Amanda. Sometimes with the Hierophant with a non-romantic card such as three of pentacles, it can mean he has taken what you have for granted. I suggest doing the soulmate manifestation, and if this man is who you are meant to be with, he will become more of what you want….:) Here is a link to a soulmate manifestation video: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/manifest-soul-mate/

  45. isabelle October 11, 2016 at 6:49 am

    Hello, I’ve been asking a few times if a man will eventually develop “love” feelings towards me. I often pull Hermit and Hierophant combo, surrounded with other cards that varies, such as Temperance or Strength or world. I don’t do any spread, I usually just ask a question and pick 3 or 4 cards.
    The context is that we’ve been lovers for a short period of time, I fell pregnant and kept the child against his will. He stopped talking to me for 3 years. He came back in my life for his daughter and we started being lovers again with agreement he just wants to be friends because he’s not in love. 2 months ago he stopped being lovers and just wants to be platonic friends because he’s uncomfortable with the situation knowing I’m in love with him.

  46. Inger Bråthen October 11, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    Hi, Isabelle. You might have come together for the purpose of having the child….this could have already been pre-decided before you were born, and part of your destiny. If he is your soulmate, he will want to be with you. I would do the soulmate manifestation, and manifest someone who will be there for you 🙂 Here is the link to do the soulmate meditation manifestations: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/manifest-soul-mate/

  47. Misty October 21, 2016 at 9:10 am

    Hi Inger, I would really love some help from you on finding out about if my boyfriend and I will persevere and survive through all the hardship we’ve been going through. I’ve been having a really hard past year in my job and home situation and we have a really wonderful relationship. It’s been hard on the relationship since I’ve been going through issues of moving to the city we live in and changing my career and not being able to keep a job. It’s made it harder that I also haven’t had a real place to live because of that and he’s let me live with him since no one in my family will even help me. He’s the most amazing guy and we love each other so much, but he also wants me to live on my own, which I understand. It’s been stressful on the relationship and he doesn’t want to date me while we live together. I’m trying to get a place, but the amount of obstacles and stresses on being able to do that have been preventing me so far. He’s my best friend and I want to have the confidence and believe that I don’t need to worry about us being together in the future. If you could please help me I would very much appreciate it. Thank you and I enjoy your site so much.

  48. Inger Bråthen October 21, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    Hi, Misty. Could I please have your DOBs and I can see if you are compatible in the numbers…You can send it to me on the contact me page: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/contact-me

  49. Inger Bråthen October 22, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    Hi, Misty. I had a look in the cards and they are showing me you working and enjoying it. They are showing me everything that is happening at the moment is actually to give you back control in your life. They also show me your boyfriend has some emotional issues at the moment, and he might not be coping very well in his life. I almost feel like you are there living with him now as a part of a divine setup so that he has more emotional support at the moment. The cards are also telling me that you are someone who is very capable and you will be able to get your life on track with ease. In numerology, you are currently in a 5 year cycle. In a 5 year cycle, there are always lots of twists and turns, and this year will fly quickly. Next year, you will be focusing more on your career. In about 3 months time you will know exactly where you stand with your boyfriend, and if you want to continue with the relationship. They show me you will make a very good decision that is for the best for you. 🙂

  50. Dawn Sweeney November 22, 2016 at 10:35 am

    Greetings and blessings to you. I got the sun and hierophant when I asked if my ex and I will reconcile. I’m lost. Your guidance is greatly appreciated.

  51. Inger Bråthen November 22, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    Hi, Dawn. The Sun is always a good card to get, and can mean you will have a very positive outcome. You can also try this tarot spread called Estranged lovers spread.

    Card 1. What is the main obstacle between me and …name of estranged lover.

    Card 2. What are the chances we will be reunited.

    Card 3. How compatible are we.

    Card 4. Future influences.

    Card 5, 6, 7. Destiny of relationship.

    Let me know how you go 🙂

  52. Dawn Sweeney November 23, 2016 at 10:44 am

    Thank you so much for your expedient reply. These have been hard times.. I will definitely let you know.

  53. QueenOfCups December 5, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    Hi Inger,

    I asked the cards about a man I like and what will happen between us. The first card is The Lovers, the second The Hermit and the third and last card The Hierophant.
    All Major Arcana cards, what does this mean for us?

  54. Inger Bråthen December 6, 2016 at 7:05 pm

    The Major Arcana cards mean there is a lot of destiny at play, and the relationship will flow in a certain direction. By the cards you get, there seems to be a strong connection between you.

  55. QueenOfCups December 7, 2016 at 6:50 am

    Thank you Inger!
    Just one more question: Is a commitment possible because of The Hierophant?

  56. Inger Bråthen December 7, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Yes, absolutely 🙂

  57. Christina December 15, 2016 at 7:10 am

    Hi , I did a spread , not formal , I kind of make them up sometimes, regarding someone I might have feelings for, not sure how he feels about me. The first card was the emperor, next the lovers, and then the empress. I drew two more cards , the heirophant and the world. I take this as very good but wanted a second opinion. Thank you.

  58. Inger Bråthen December 16, 2016 at 4:03 am

    Hi, Christina. I agree, your cards look great. Did you only use the Major Arcana cards, or did you use the whole deck, and only Majors turned up….?

  59. Christina December 16, 2016 at 6:45 am

    I used a full deck and only the majors turned up! Thank you for your response! I was asking about a specific person, things between us aren’t great but not unfriendly. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

  60. Inger Bråthen December 16, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    When Major Arcanas are showing up you will have to go with the Flow, and basically, have faith that everything will turn out great. I think also the cards are telling you that you have great communication, and this is the key to success in this situation.

  61. Sonseray December 19, 2016 at 5:01 am

    Hi Inger:

    I got the hierophant followed by the 10 of swords as how a man feels for a woman in a romantic sense however, I see nothing very romantic about this combination. Normally, I would see the hierophant as commitment, tradition, holding someone or the relationship at high standard sacredly, a traditional marriage card. However, when the 10 of swords came up,I was like ouch! So does this mean the male no longer hold this relationship at a high standard? Or as I read it committed to ending the relationship he once held sacred?

  62. Inger Bråthen December 19, 2016 at 8:37 pm

    The hierophant is shedding light on the Ten of swords…It could be that there is a need for a renewal, and the man is also feeling a bit old and needs to feel excited about life again…

  63. Mel December 19, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    I picked heirophant and for his feelings for me ace of penticles. Is this positive as iv read the ace of penticles is not really linked to love more like? We have been a couple for a year and a half.

  64. Inger Bråthen December 20, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    Hi, Mel. 🙂 This card combination can mean he feels very secure with you….:)

  65. Dawn Sweeney December 21, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    Inger! Hello, and how are you? Many blessings and wonderful energy is being sent to you from this way! Update from 11/22/2016. My lost love and I are back together. He reached out to me on Thanksgiving. I was so happy, you couldn’t even imagine. I fell in love with him all over again. Thank you, and many blessings!!!!!!.

    p.s.The outcomes I get now are the World, Sun, and Hierophant. I pray all of those are good.
    Love and light to you!!!😚

  66. Inger Bråthen December 21, 2016 at 3:00 pm

    Hi, Dawn. That’s great news!!!! Regards to those cards you got….They are all Fantastic! 😀

  67. Amber December 30, 2016 at 11:08 am

    Will we work out our relationship. He got angry for something he said was unforgivable. First card ten of swords, second five of swords, third wheel of fortune, four the moon five the heirophant. Im feeling that he is angry but we keep being pulled back regardless of the pain, the wheel of fortune makes me feel like we are meant to be together, the universe brought us there, and the heirophant makes me feel after we both grow and learn snd accept things abouy each other that we are supposed to be.

  68. Inger Bråthen January 1, 2017 at 8:19 am

    Hi, Amber. This card combination suggests you two need to find a way to grow in this relationship. Work out what your individual goals are, and support each other in reaching them. 🙂

  69. Lucy January 2, 2017 at 6:24 am

    Hi Inger 🙂

    I did a 3 card spread with specific questions regarding a love interest. I have an idea of the card meanings but I just wanted to get your opinion.

    First card – I asked if X person (man) was in a serious relationship and I got The Hierophant card. I clarified it and got the 6 of cups. I thought, “ok then he is in a committed relationship with someone from his past.”

    But then I got to the second card:
    I asked if this guy was happy in his relationship and I got the 10 of Swords! So how does this change everything in the meaning? Two positive cards and then a “negative” card. Are they breaking up? Is he tired with this relationship? A done deal?

    Third Card – I asked — is this guy going through a spiritual journey? what is he looking for? I got the Knight of Cups.

    Do you mind helping me trying to figure this out? Thanks!

  70. Inger Bråthen January 3, 2017 at 11:47 pm

    Hi, Lucy. It can mean he is unhappy and their relationship needs a renewal. He could be wanting more romance since you drew the Knight of cups card.

    Hi Amber. Hopefully you can advise me. I did a 4 card spread that i found online “will my ex return?”, but idk if that was the right one because he was not really my boyfriend. About 2 months ago you recommended a spread and help me interpret it, which at that time looked promising, as u said then, he was starting to develop feelings for me. But He is so hard to read, one day he is hot another day he’s cold (plus i know he has other suitors) so i told him i give up, that i couldn’t deal with his inconsistent behavior towards me and i ended communication with him about 2 weeks ago. In the 4 card spread i did i got: 10 of swords as the situation, fool as the challenge, temperance as advice and the hierophant as most likely outcome. I want to know if there was any chance for him to return, for us to kinda start over or if i should just let it go. Thank you. Or should i do another spread for my situation to find out if he’ll contact me again? Thanks again and many blessings for 2017.

    Looks like you have given this man the opportunity to follow his feelings and develop a relationship with you, and since he is not committing to you, the cards I believe is telling you that you will meet someone who will make a strong commitment to you….

  73. Martha January 4, 2017 at 7:18 am

    Thank you for replying. It’s a little disappointing that things are not turning up how i wanted but i guess it’s for the best. I truly appreciate your answer. Best wishes.

    Will I follow my current hearts desire or will I go back to an old flame ?

  75. Inger Bråthen January 4, 2017 at 2:33 pm

    Hi, Marelyn. My overall feeling is to go with the new heart’s desire…..:)

  76. Michelle January 5, 2017 at 6:01 pm

    Hello Inger, I am single and I asked what this year will bring.
    I got the moon for where/when I could meet someone, hierophant for the courtship, the world for longterm outcome
    & for challenges 3 of wands.
    I feel very positive about this year because hierophant is a commitment card but it is weird that it is after the moon.
    Could i meet someone and be hit with intuitive desire? being lost and confused, rose colored glasses and then the hierophant? which is pragmatic? then the world as outcome which could mean a lot of things…. really confused

  77. Inger Bråthen January 6, 2017 at 9:40 am

    Hi, Michelle. I feel like this is a relationship that will be mystical and romantic, and you will commit to each other very quickly 🙂 The world as outcome card often means you become each other’s worlds….:)

  78. Marri January 13, 2017 at 8:30 pm

    Dear Inger,
    recently I had a relationship which the other side cut off abruptly before it actually grew into something more, I believe due to his commitment-phobia. After the breakup we met several times and got on vety well as friends. I still couldn’t get him out of his head, so I made a reading asking about the relatinship. The cards I drew were: Hierophant as the main card, for the past: King of wands, Strength, Three of cups, and for the future: Seven of wands, Star and World. What would you make of this?

  79. Inger Bråthen January 13, 2017 at 8:44 pm

    Hi, Marry. You could ask him if he has committed himself somewhere else? I also feel like you will begin a new relationship with someone else.

  80. Sarah January 23, 2017 at 6:14 pm

    Hi,

    I just did a three card love spread. I got 7 of Cups for the Past, The High Priestess for the Present and I was being guided to take two cards next to each other for the Future which are the Queen of Wands and The Hierophant. My question pertained to Love and asked ‘putting myself in the position of the man I’m interested in, how does he feel about me. Afterwards i asked if there was anything else i needed to know about this situation and i drew 2 cards, the Ace of Pentacles and King of Cups. I’m curious on your understanding of this and would really appreciate greater insight to it.

  81. Sarah January 23, 2017 at 6:17 pm

    PS Seems predictive text had other plans for your name

  82. Inger Bråthen January 24, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    Hi, Sarah. Your cards indicate he might already be in a relationship. I can see you connecting with someone else.

  83. Tarah January 25, 2017 at 5:27 am

    Hello Inger,
    I truly appreciate all that you do to help others, you have a wonderful soul 😀

    I have recently met a man, we have been on two dates and he has expressed interest in me physically but when I let him know that I don’t like to be intimate until I am ready he worried that he may have come off as pushy which I took as a good sign.

    I asked the tarot how he feels about me and the idea of a committed relationship? And I got The Hierophant, The Star and Justice.
    Please let me know any of your insights into this reading and I truly thank you for your time.
    From Tarah

  84. Sarah January 25, 2017 at 8:28 am

    Thanks Inger. He’s not in another relationship to my knowledge, but he is in love with his past girlfriend and is sleeping around with a few girls. Could it refer to his past love or is it definitely someone in the present?

  85. Inger Bråthen February 2, 2017 at 9:05 am

    I would spend no more time focusing on a guy who is in love with his past and sleeping with other girls. You deserve one that only has eyes for you! Here is a link to the twin flame spread: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/twin-flame-tarot-spread/ Once you start focusing on twin flame relationship you will start attracting in a much better relationship. 🙂

  86. Sarah February 2, 2017 at 9:49 am

    Thank you – and guess what?? You read the cards I sent you correctly….He is secretly having something with another person! I found out that evening after sending you my question!! I was gutted, but now I feel a bit clearer and freer. Just hope that other person comes in quickly…

  87. Jill February 6, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    Hi Inger! Omg I can’t believe you’re answering questions more than a year after your post. You’re such a gem 🙂
    I’m a beginner in tarot and recently did a 4 card spread about a guy I have a crush on. I got page of pentacles (situation), queen of pentacles (challenge), hierophant (advice) and four of wands (outcome).
    Any advice on what the spread tells you? Thanks!

  88. Inger Bråthen February 8, 2017 at 12:04 am

    Hi, Jill. The cards are saying you are ready for commitment and you need to find someone who can commit and give you the life you always wanted. If the guy you have a crush on is the right one for you, then he will be communicating clearly that he is interested in you too 🙂

  89. bambam February 10, 2017 at 3:47 pm

    My guy and I 2 years dating on and off.. told him I want to live in same cities and be my boyfriend. I told the cards I only want to be with him…. what is he thinking in a love reading. I got this card. He’s not telling me what he thinks but we still are communicating a lot.

  90. Inger Bråthen February 11, 2017 at 6:54 am

    The Hierophant indicates the time is right either to make a deeper commitment or let go and be with someone who can commit. If you tell him you want a commitment, he will give it to you if he truly loves you.

  91. Elizabeth February 13, 2017 at 2:40 am

    Hi Inger
    I asked the cards if my ex and I would get back together. It was a heartbreaking ending but he ended us. I drew the heirophant card.

  92. Inger Bråthen February 14, 2017 at 5:39 am

    Hi, don’t blame yourself for this breakup. The Hierophant is telling you that you will meet someone who wants to commit to you and only you. If this person is your ex, then you will know soon.

  93. sharon February 15, 2017 at 5:06 am

    Hi Inger.
    I am curious for some advice about the king of swords. Did a one card reading for a friend, she found herself in a relationship with a man who had a partner already, he lied to her. She has been considering whether to tell the lady he lives with about the relationship. He claimed she was his ex and it was only financial why hes stayed, although he didn’t wanty friend to meet his family. Is the king of swords an indication that yes she should tell his ex because maybe she is not his ex afterall.
    Thank you

  94. Inger Bråthen February 18, 2017 at 8:32 am

    Hi, Sharon. King of sword is an indication to cut the tie and walk away from the situation. 🙂

  95. Anna February 21, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    Hello Inger, I did the estranged love reading suggested in this post and pulled:
    1. 3 of wands
    2. 3 of cups
    3. Knight of swords
    4. 10 of cups
    5. Knight of cups
    6. Page of pentacles
    7. Queen of pentacles
    I would love some insight on how you would interpret that combination. I feel with the 3 of cups in position 2 it is definitely saying there will be a reunion. Also thank you so much for this site I have been learning so much, especially with the write ups for the major arcana love readings ❤

  96. Yen February 22, 2017 at 6:17 am

    Hi Inger I did a lovers tarot spread this is what I got
    Present situation- Ace of cups

    Your world- Two of pentacles

    Your lovers world- Wheel of fortune

    Nature of issues- Six of pentacles

    Obstacles- Death/rebirth

    Lessons & signs- the chariot

    Your hopes fears & desisires- two of wands

    Your lovers hopes fears & desires- 9 of cups

    Challenges- the fool

    Outcome- the hierophant

  97. Inger Bråthen February 23, 2017 at 2:37 pm

    Hi, Yen. These cards indicate your lover is on the path to his destiny as far as his life and career is concerned. He already has a solid foundation of who he is, what he wants, and where he is going. You might be at a crossroad where you are afraid of making the wrong decision. Follow your intuition. You are now meant to make an intuitive decision and follow the path that is dearest to your heart. I also feel like your lover is scared of getting hurt in personal relationship. This relationship will transform you both to become more secure, and it looks you could have a traditional and secure relationship. If there is distance in the relationship at this time then communication is at the heart, and when you get to talk about what is at the heart of the matter, this will bring you closer. You are meant to communicate about deeper things, and let each other close to each others hearts. Strength and love will keep your union strong and lasting. Be patient 🙂

  98. Inger Bråthen February 23, 2017 at 3:13 pm

    Card 1. What is the main obstacle between me and …name of estranged lover. 3 of wands. Miscommunication.

    Card 2. What are the chances we will be reunited. 3 of cups. Yes, there is a chance.

    Card 3. How compatible are we. Knight of swords. When it is good, its good, and when it is bad it is bad 🙂

    Card 4. Future influences. 10 of cups. You seem to be able to come together through your spiritual connection.

    Card 5, 6, 7. Destiny of relationship. Knight of cups, page of pentacles, queen of pentacles. There seem to still be a strong connection between you. There is a spark there.

  99. Michelle February 26, 2017 at 8:17 am

    Hello Inger! I have asked the tarot and my spirit guides to help me find out the feelings of a guy I have been seeing for almost a month know. He is such a kind person and we give each other equal energy and are both emotional people. On both occasions I have gotten the card Queen of cups and the Hierophant when I have asked how he feels about me. I also got the Queen of pentacles as the outcome card. Are all these cards together positive for us?

  100. Inger Bråthen February 28, 2017 at 12:44 pm

    Hi, Michelle. Yes these cards are great.

  101. Anna February 28, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Thank you so much for taking the time to interpret the cards I got! I was having a hard time applying each card for the designated spots expecially because there were so many court cards. The guy in question I believe him to be my twin flame. Due to alot of insane syncronicities (incidents, birthdays, home addresses, phone numbers, our names, some pretty awesome unexplainable signs, telepathy, even our lives have followed the same path , we had so much in common, things i have never had in common with others, instantly we connected (we met online initially) and had phone conversations that initially lasted for 6+ hours.) I feel like he is the male version of me And yet somehow my strengths are his weaknesses and vice versa. He could articulate my feelings better than me and vice versa. The minute i first heard his voice on the phone it literally felt like some dormant spark inside of me lit on fire, (never felt that sensation before) then it felt like de ja vu…and it wasn’t because he had an attractive voice lol because i actually thought his voice was funny lol not what i had expected from his pictures. I’ve never connected with anyone so deeply before in my life.. It almost became that this level of deep understanding of one another caused each of us to become frustrated because (at least in my case ) I felt very vulnerable… it was scary to me that he could readily see my true feelings well before i was ready for him to know them and i feel he may have felt this vulnerability as well . When i first saw him in person i knew i loved him…. giving him a hug for the first time was like reuniting with a long lost love and that first date an observer would swear we were in love for years…. we went on two dates that day lol one in the afternoon and he called me later that night and invited me to go see a movie. i love him very deeply, so much so that past relationships where i thought it was love i now know it wasn’t because how i feel for him is much deeper…much stronger and could never compare to any other “love” i thought i knew in the past…. i knew it was very special when we first met, i remember saying to myself , i cannot believe he is for me… after all the failed and emotionally abusive past relationships and heart breaks this amazing specimen of a man was for me..but i was so filled with fear and then doubt because of self worth issues… i tried to ignore the signs that affirmed what i knew about us belonging together because i didnt want to get my hopes up and i allowed worry and fear of loss to overcome me.. i had led myself astray in the past holding on to an emotionally absuive relationship, so i was having a hard time trusting my judgement… i felt i wasn’t ready for something that felt so deep with such great potential to shatter me if it failed …. i had just let go of a 9 year relationship 9 months before meeting him.. and had just began dipping my toes into dating..we dated for 6 months and then he left. He said he loved me but couldnt give me what he felt i needed and deserved (in a nutshell) that was the first time he had said he loved me, when he was leaving. And since (its been 6 months now) I’ve literally been stuck in the darkest space of my life…. im tired of being stuck… im tired of being sad … im so blessed in life but i feel hopeless… my heart has been broken into a million tiny little pieces and im trying so hard to get it together, i turned to tarot for answers and often get the death or the tower card to describe where i am at in life more recently ive been getting the magician and chariot. And id also often get the star card when id inquire about him… I know i need to love myself and find my self worth but i keep being afraid he will never come back … I keep feeling like if only we had met when i was healed more from the past maybe things would have turned out better…. i keep telling myself if its meant he will come back but then my doubts creep in and ask me how do i know that expression is even true… no one has ever understood me the way he did….no one has ever made me feel so comfortable with just being myself without judgement. And now i feel like a fool because surly if it was so deep for me it must be so for him and surly all the syncronicities sent to me in my darkest moments telling me now is not the time he will come back and we are meant to be must mean something but then if that was the case how could he just walk away and not look back? I just dont want to lead myself astray.. Anyways i have no idea why i just poured my feelings out… i suppose to say the stuff about a spiritual connection and a strong connection in our reading gives me some hope because it is true. I once asked tarot if there was hope for us and got the star card… since then id often pull the star card in my daily (what should i know about today ) readings … this whole experience, starting when i first met him, flipped the switch of magic on in my life… never before have i known this world to be so filled with so much beautiful magic and for the first time i felt this deep unconditional love from the universe pouring down on me, even now as i am in this very dark place I feel the universe holding my hand and letting me know it will all be alright, just be patient. I know this time is here for my growth but it doesnt seem to ease all of my fears and doesn’t make it stop hurting.. and then i become afraid my fears are what is possibly delaying him coming back or maybe preventing him from ever coming back. I wish i could just let it go… and be at peace…

  102. Inger Bråthen March 2, 2017 at 9:03 am

    Dear, Anna. This has been a hard for you, no doubt about it. However, I do feel that you are awakening on a spiritual level, and you will soon have joy and happiness in your life as a result of everything you now learning about yourself, what you really need and want out of life and relationships. Often times such intense connections, even though they don’t work out, often lead us to great realization and enlightenment. Even now you are feeling like you are in a dark place right now, as you have said, for the first time in your life, you have been awakened to the magic and the beauty of the Universe which will ultimately open up the path and lead you to bliss and happiness.

  103. Johanna March 3, 2017 at 1:57 am

    Hello Inger! I love and admire that you have been replying to all these comments! I would love some insight too, if possible 😀

    I did a relationship spread (this one: http://psychiclibrary.com/beyondBooks/relationship-tarot-spread/), where my results were (all up-right):

    My view of him – 10 of wands
    His view of me – 8 of pentacles
    My needs – The Star
    His needs – The Fool
    Current state of relationship – The Empress
    The path I would like – The Emperor
    The path he would like – 5 of pentacles (?!)
    Aspects to consider – 10 swords
    Question outcome – The Hierophant

    Essentially, I have known him nearly my whole life via family (our parents were close friends) however we lived on opposite sides of the world with basically no contact. 1.5 years ago, I moved to the country he lives and I currently work for him/ his business. He was in a long term relationship which he ended about 6 months ago, and we have since essentially been friends with benefits. (Not that I was exactly the cause of the breakup, I do believe my “role” in his life did perhaps “speed it up”…). I deeply care for him, however I don’t know how to proceed… Next week, he will be leaving this country for 2 months, only to return for another 2 months or so, to finally permanently move to the new country (something he’s planned to do for years).

    When I consulted the Tarot, I basically asked what I should do with myself and he – what I should do over the next 2 months, where this is all leading, does he genuinely care for me, is there a future with us or do I need to make it without him etc. From one side, I have a strong pull to be with him, however there are circumstances which make me hesitant/ confused – such as the fact he is moving, that he also has a child, that we work together, that our families are friends… etc. And also the fact, that when we first “got together” 6 months ago, he did say that given he has been in long relationships most of his life, he is not looking for anything serious from anyone – that he needs “him” time – but at the same time, that he cares and feels a type of “symbiosis” with me.

    It’s all rather confusing, and because I value him so much as a friend too, I don’t want to scare him away through trying to pursue something more. But perhaps my fear of losing him/ not having that extra “step” from friendship makes me self-sabotage anyway… Or maybe I’m way ahead of myself and there’s not even anything for me to chase! Aaaah any insights would be greatly appreciated!!!

    All the best, beauty, and light to you!! x

  104. Inger Bråthen March 3, 2017 at 7:31 am

    Hi, I do feel this person will go on his adventure (the Fool) which is what he needs now, and then I feel like he will return. He wants to be ‘tested’ (5 of pentacles) to see what he is made of. I feel like once he has done this, he will have more inner peace. The Hierophant suggests you have a strong chance of coming together in a stable and secure relationship.

  105. Courtney March 3, 2017 at 9:41 pm

    Hi Inger. I did a reading about a guy I had a short relationship with. I got the Hierophant as an outcome clarified by the Emperor. I also did Estranged Lovers Spread and I got:
    1. The Lovers
    2. Nine of Cups
    3. Knight of Pentacles
    4, Seven of Swords
    5. Six of Pentacles
    6. Nine of Swords
    7. Judgement
    Do you think we will reunite? It is been a while, but I can’t stop thinking of him.I date other guys from time to time, but it only gets worse.

  106. Anna March 4, 2017 at 7:13 am

    Inger, Thank you so much for the message you sent it really honestly helped me feel more at peace with where I am❤ I do feel an enlightenment is taking place within me and maybe that’s why its been so hard and so scary. I really feel as if I resonate strongly with your words, i teared up reading your message when i saw the notification in my inbox it was perfect timing and what i exactly needed to read. I would really love and appreciate your thoughts or interpretation on the first tarot love reading i did for him and I a couple of months ago (which had also been the most synchronistic reading I’ve ever seen so far ) it was a heart shapped one I saw in a doreen virtue book:
    Situation between us (lovers )
    Strengths of relationship (strength )
    Current challenges (the tower)
    His hope for the relationship (the magician)
    My hope for the relationship (9 of cups)
    How he views me (knight of cups [im a water sign])
    How i view him (page of pentacles [ he is an earth sign and 2 years younger than me])
    How i am impacting the relationship ( ace of pentacles)
    How he is impacting the relationship (five of swords)
    How he can help me (queen of wands)
    How i can help him (three of wands)
    The outcome (the star) my question was if we belonged together i believe or something along those lines
    Thank you so much for everything honestly, lol this will be my last question but this particular spread always amazed me because of how near perfect that cards were positioned (especially the strenght in the strenght position)

  107. Inger Bråthen March 4, 2017 at 11:00 am

    Card 1. What is the main obstacle between me and …name of estranged lover. The Lovers. There could be another person involved in this as well, possibly creating a love triangle.

    Card 2. What are the chances we will be reunited. Nine of cups. There is a good chance you will be reunited.

    Card 3. How compatible are we. Knight of pentacles. You are compatible. You share the same values and beliefs.

    Card 4. Future influences. Seven of swords. Secrets and not wanting to share information.

    Card 5, 6, 7. Destiny of relationship. Six of pentacles, Nine of swords, Judgement. There is a chance to resurrect, however, this is also a relationship that can cause you some worries and concern.

  108. Inger Bråthen March 4, 2017 at 11:22 am

    Hi, Anna. Thank you for your reply to my message as well 🙂

  109. Johanna Rivers March 4, 2017 at 5:25 pm

    Thank you sooooo much for your attention and insight!! Highly appreciated!! ❤

  110. Inger Bråthen March 6, 2017 at 5:12 pm

    You are very welcome Johanna 🙂

  111. xiaotingting March 17, 2017 at 9:21 pm

    hiii i got a hermit heirophant and the strength card in my relationship reading.. what does it mean?? does it mean a commitment and marriage along the way and does the strength card mean a power of love? and the cards werent reversed in my reading.

  112. Inger Bråthen March 18, 2017 at 2:41 am

    It means this relationship will develop towards a strong commitment such as marriage. Strength in love means passionate love and being each other’s rock.
