For the Found Tarot: THE HIEROPHANT (V)

The first Hierophant (4-14-12 11684v2b) I've found in my pix! Albeit a very quirky one, but a High Priest nevertheless. At least to my eyes. I see the HP standing with arms spread in the middle top, blessing the two acolytes just below. This photomorph's mundane name is "Straddling the Worlds," so in that sense it can also be read as The Hierophant. Here's V in the well-known RWS deck for comparison:

As to any "message" from this card for me today? Given the difficulty I had getting a decent quality and size of RWS Hierophant image to post here, I'd say that straddling worlds can be difficult at times. But sometimes it's the only way to bring through what we need. And that being stubborn (sometimes mistaken as placid, smile) like a bull also serves. (V is often attributed to the astrology sign Taurus the Bull.)

I'd also like to mention that I've started posting again to my Taiga Tarot blog. The post today is my version in that deck of the Nine of Pentacles.

*ABOUT THE FOUND TAROT: Since sometime in 2009 I've been making occasional posts here of photos of mine in which I see Tarot cards. However, I don't take these pix with the Tarot in mind, rather only see cards in them at some point later once they're on my computer screen. If you'd like to see previous Found Tarot posts, you can use the search function at the top left of this page, or the Found Tarot label at the very bottom of this post.

N.B. A small thing, but just in case: some of the extra reference links offered at the very end of my oldest (years old) posts no longer work. As there are so many posts here to go through I am choosing not to search for and change all of those links that are "dead." (Though I immediately delete any I now stumble across that lead to questionable sites.) If you are interested, you can try Googling for the name of the site or article referenced. I'm finding that some are still around in new locations or incarnations, some not.

'til next time, keep enjoying The Tarot, in whatever ways it comes to you in your life,
