trying to sort out what the hierophant means in a relationship on trying to determine someone's feelings for a friend. question was "how does/perspective on how x feels about y" and here's what was in the spread:
1. foundation/recent past: hierophant (perhaps x is taking higher ground to sort himself out, seeking guidance or assessing values as it relates to the other person?)
2. present: 6 of cups...seeking emotional fulfillment, renewal of feelings/emotional connection perhaps with the other person? renewal/shift in/change from tone/approach in their previous relationship?
3. outcome: sun (healing, emotional healing, rebirth, happiness)
i too struggle with this pope card and know it has a myriad of interpretations.
