Letters From Thoth Hierophant
Letters From the Thoth Tarot
What I like about this Hierophant that I hated in the RWS version is that this one is not so stodgy or um, churchy? This teacher is updated for the new Aeon, that of Horus, not Osiris. This is a creative and bold teacher, one who initiates teaching and learning and look at the Scarlet Woman supporting him (not those weird acolytes in the RWS) "She represents Venus as she now is in this new aeon; no longer the mere vehicle of her male counterpart, but armed and militant"
I like that this card adds a powerful female/sexual side to this card which was missing before. There are so many Thelemic symbols here that I don't even know where to start or end so I will leave it for now as I am still learning, but it is fascinating to see this card open up into more meanings then it had for me in the RWS deck.
We are the small dancing child on the Hierophant's breast - we are joyous in our conversation with this wise teacher - The Hierophant is someone who has united all aspects of him/herself and in this enlightened state can teach us to do the same, by giving us the keys to this Kingdom - so we can explore and become whole.
