Our card for today comes from the “Law of Attraction Tarot.” The card pulled is the Hierophant.
When the Hierophant weighs in on what you are experiencing in life, you are being asked to consider what your beliefs are, and how you came to learn them. Are your beliefs the results of your upbringing, beliefs that have been passed down in your family? Or perhaps they are the result of societal conditioning?
The image on this card is that of a judge, holding a mallet, as if he were about to pass sentence on a matter brought before his court. Above him, are the Latin words “Dura Lex, Sed Lex,” which translates to “The law is hard, but it is the law.”
As the judge is a person who upholds the law, so it is that we are working (the judge is a professional) with the Law of Attraction. This card suggests that we examine what we truly believe about the Law: Do we believe it works? That it doesn’t? That it is too hard? What we believe is the result of weighing in on the “evidence” of the Law at work in our lives–we judge based on appearances.
That is only half the truth. The Law, which is an immutable Universal Principle (the Hierophant is a Major Arcana card, which represents Universal Lessons and Principles at work), and therefore is always at work, works in accordance with what we believe. So if we believe the Law is too hard to work with, the evidence of that belief will show up in our life experience. The Law is at always at work–whether we believe in it or not.
