Vatican City and The Hierophant

I was visiting the Vatican City few days ago. The hotel I stayed was 5 minutes walk away from the city so every morning and evening I would pass by. A solemn place (full of tourists like myself) with balancing architectural structure, heaviness in feeling as it comes with responsibility and duty for the residing saints to serve God. 


Nevertheless a remarkable place and can make one feel so small in front of God, as if all world issues are dust or easy jobs to Him. Let’s leave Him our worries so we can enjoy life, the beautiful summer.


Some thoughts on the Hierophant. My birth number is 5. It’s quality is of constant change and unceasing desire for freedom. In Tarot the number 5 card in the major arcana is the Hierophant. He is the King of the Spiritual World on Earth. Full of indoctrination, what is right and what is wrong without any grey area. 5 is the number of freedom which looks like a complete contrast to the guidance of the Hierophant. Perhaps it is especially important to recognise the ideal has to come in positive thoughts and intentions while acknowledging everyone has freedom to make such choice. Always there is respect of freedom; always there is the love of God. Preaching in love.


A strong feeling that the city Rome is ruled by Saturn with lots of well preserved ruins and history. 


My favourite site of the city is the Pantheon. A pagan temple built initially for Cleopatra over 2000 years ago, converted into Christianity by around 600AD. One can still sense the amazing and mystical energy when you get inside. 


And of course there is Arch Angel Michael. The angel images will be featured in many of the forth-coming tarot-scope posts.
