Stacking Tarot Wednesdays | The Hierophant

Hello bookworms,

welcome to this post! I’m not sure how well this will go, but I think it will be fun. Today I’m trying to combine two of my hobbies, tarot, and reading! For a little background, I’m not truly practiced with tarot, I’m honestly a beginner but we all have to start somewhere and I think this is a fun way both to get to know my cards better, and to remind myself of what books are on my physical tbr because I wont lie, it grows bigger every day.

So, I guess you want to know how it’s going to work right? I’ll split my deck, separating the major and minor arcana (Major being cards through 0-21) and work solely with the major arcana. That’s because I feel like I can relate them more to books than I can the minor, and that was a spoiler! Yes, I will be relating them to what I know of the books off my TBR. So for example, if I pulled the fool, it would be books about starting a journey etc etc. 

I CANNOT take full originality for this idea, ABOOKATHOUGHT created the wonderful COLOURFUL BOOKISH SUNDAY series which inspired me to get thinking about making my own kind of TBR series and then READACROSSTHESTARS & DUNGEONSANDCANDLES over on Instagram helped me turn this into something that fitted who I am, I can’t recommend the three of them enough

So, let’s get into it and I’m sure you’ll all come to understand what’s going on! Please leave a comment down below if you think this is a series you’d enjoy reading.


THE CARD

THE HIEROPHANT

Keywords: Teacher, Religion, Spirituality, Conformity Wisdom

When the Hierophant arrives in a reading, it often has something to do with spirituality. Normally this leans into conformity, and sticking to the tried and true in your religion or spirituality. But sometimes, the hierophant is a mentor, or a teacher, someone wise with something to teach you.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR IN BOOKS TO RELATE TO THIS CARD

books that feature either a teacher, a wise character, a search for wisdom or relevant themes of spirituality and religion!

THE BOOKS ON MY TBR

🏮 My Hero Academia #3

What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

🏮 Circe

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child—not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power—the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

🏮 The Name of the Wind

Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.
The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature.

🏮 The Princess Diarist

When Carrie Fisher discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved–plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivety, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Before her passing, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon was indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.

🏮 The Lost Symbol

As the story opens, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned unexpectedly to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol Building. Within minutes of his arrival, however, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object – artfully encoded with five symbols – is discovered in the Capitol Building. Langdon recognizes the object as an ancient invitation…one meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of esoteric wisdom.

🏮 The Secret History

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality they slip gradually from obsession to corruption and betrayal, and at last – inexorably – into evil.

🏮 Ruthless Gods

As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. They’re pieces on a board, being orchestrated by someone… or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.

🏮 The Dragon Republic

In the aftermath of the Third Poppy War, shaman and warrior Rin is on the run: haunted by the atrocity she committed to end the war, addicted to opium, and hiding from the murderous commands of her vengeful god, the fiery Phoenix. Her only reason for living is to get revenge on the traitorous Empress who sold out Nikan to their enemies.
