From the Robin Wood Tarot

The Hierophant is associated with earthy Taurus, which helps to explain his meaning. The Hierophant represents spirituality, but it is firmly grounded in the physical plane. That can mean the structures and rituals of religions and wise counsel, of a practical nature, from an authority figure. In my interpretation of the Fool’s Journey he represents the Fool’s first encounter with the wider customs and practices of his society and culture. They can be a safe haven or a restriction and the Hierophant can speak of the challenges of fitting in at school or knuckling down to a new discipline.
