Sensation, Tarot Hierophant
Sensation, Tarot Hierophant represents a quality within ourselves that registers an awareness of phenomenon. It is not the elucidation of the phenomenon but the bringing to our attention that there is something of which we are not cognizant.
Admitting we are uninformed about a subject or situation is our door to exiting ourselves from the thralldom of what is holding us back. It is the first step to our educating ourselves on how we resolve the influence. Overcoming fear of the dark is our next step on the path to cognition of the paradox. See Tarot Hermit and Tarot Devil
