The Hierophant suggests a way to live a happier life

March 6, 2017

There are many ways to use Tarot cards beyond the well-known process of doing a traditional reading. Here are a couple of suggestions from the Hierophant about how to create a happier life for you to choose from. Both are inspired by brilliant quotes.

Socrates is purported to have said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Similarly, I have created this pithy meaning for the Hierophant: “The unexamined faith is not worth believing.” This suggests something you can do today:

Write a short paragraph about what you believe. Then write a short paragraph about how or why this might not be true. Spend some time today thinking about this. Examine your faith.

The other salient quote is this: “My religion is kindness.” — 14th Dalai Lama

Make an effort today, wherever possible, to be kind to other people. Think of it not as merely being considerate, but as your spiritual practice for the day.


Many of these suggestions from the cards about how to live a happier, more fulfilled life were inspired by my pithy Tarot meanings and others by material in my book, The Soul’s Journey. So if you like them, you might also like my books, Pithy Tarot and The Soul’s Journey. Also, for more Tarot messages, LIKE my Tarot Facebook page.
