The Hierophant reversed suggests that you are feeling restrained by rules and structure, and thus, you have lost flexibility and control in your life. You have a deep desire to go against the rules and break free from convention. The Hierophant reversed is about breaking the rules and challenging the status quo. You want to challenge ideas and concepts that you once thought were written in stone.
The reversed Hierophant is about questioning tradition and asking yourself if what you are doing is really the right thing by you.
The reversed Hierophant can sometimes reflect group or society pressure. You are being forced to conform but you do not agree with the essential belief systems.
The Hierophant can also represent a person who is a leader or authority. Since this card is reversed, this person is a strict ruler, forcing others to follow the rules and afraid of doing something to different to change the status quo. If this person is ‘in charge’ then you have little options but to follow.
