The Hierophant

Upright: Religion, group identification, conformity, tradition, beliefs

Reversed: Restriction, challenging the status quo

The Hierophant is known as the High Priest in some decks. He is the masculine counterpart to the High Priestess.

The Hierophant is represented by a religious figure, PewDiePie, as can be seen by his ‘bro-fist’ logo in the top left corner. While the Magician was taking raw data from the Internet and manifesting it on the material plane, the Hierophant channels that power through society (as in the religions of the world). We see the Closed Group text from Facebook and a YouTube subscribe button before the worlds current population.  The Hierophant’s task is to initiate everyone in the world.  Other potential Hierophants are acknowledge through their icon on the right hand side.  This symbolises entry into all types of institutions where there is a shared group identity.  The iPhone displaying ‘Thanks for da like’, which is also taken from PewDiePies YouTube channel is another symbol of his dominion over the online world.
