Here we take a look at the symbolic connections between loyal Taurus and The Hierophant...
The Luxurious Bull: Taurus
For the finer things in life, just follow a Taurus. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, this sign is known for their indulgent side. Delicious food, beautiful surroundings and luxurious possessions will all keep your favorite bull happy.
Taurus and The Hierophant
Despite their love of the finer things, those born under the sign of Taurus are actually quite practical in their approach to life and possibly the most reliable sign of the zodiac! Which is why Taurus and The Hierophant have more in common than you might expect. The Hierophant represents spirituality, conformity and tradition. His crown communicates that he holds a position of authority and like Taurus, he is a reliable and trusted source of information. The stone columns behind him symbolize the stability of his presence and message. This echoes the dependable, though often stubborn, nature of Taurus themselves.
But who are those two bald mean in the front of the card? The two men are The Hierophant’s students. With his message of spiritual wisdom and inclusion, he brings people together and lifts them up with the truth. The Hierophant is about group identity and belonging, which bolsters self-esteem -- and this makes sense since Taurus rules the 2nd house of self-worth.
The keys represent "heaven and earth." The Hierophant is about bringing spirituality down to Earth, where it can be understood and accessed in a real, tangible way. Similarly, Taurus is a grounded, Earth sign who appreciates substance, no nonsense communication, and, of course, food!
