“Let me meditate on that Great Flame. May Fire bless me with higher intelligence. May Agni illuminate my mind.” — Agni Gayatri Mantra
The Hierophant is the prime message, delivering this important note: you are in the seat of solution this week, separate the fire of spirit and deliver it into matter. What you have realized needs to be transmitted, this may feel creative regardless of the message or the material with which you choose to deliver it, but be careful in the process, it requires attention. Attention is a gift, in this case given to yourself. In the process of exploring what you feel, think, and are driven to bring into the world, and make space and time for the methods that can take a simple dump of information and transform it into Art. Elevate your message when the creative fire comes, it will require skill to successful transmit it.
King of Pentacles appears as a Woman King, She is enthroned in the wealth of her nature that has been carefully cultured, through the Art the Hierophant teaches, and elevated Her passion from simple fire play, and made use of the metals of Her life to create richly and abundantly. She teaches the proper use of Wealth management: Wealth of Spirit and Elements (thoughts, feelings, energy, interaction, time and matter). She asks us to look at the Four F’s (Flag, Flax, Fodder, and Frig) of our life and take a measure of where we spend ourselves, and what the true cost is. She also asks us to think about the future with more acute eyes of management in mind.
Her position is of power in the world, brought about by her own self transformation, which is both realization and agency to not only live as but to create from that realized place of transformation. Her material is governed. It isn’t accidental, and even when (as it should be) guided by Spirit, it is by Her hand it is made. She says look at the details but don’t become over focused on them.
And as a final thought on this process of reading this week, if you can take only one thing away, let it be this. Be the change. The King of Pentacles is transformed by the information of the Hierophant, in their transformation, the world is transformed. So if you are seeking change, difference, or launching something new, recognize that it starts and ends with you.
