THE HIEROPHANT: KANYE WEST

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

The Hierophant channels his power through society. His scepter represents his dominion over the world, and at his feet are initiates hoping to become part of the power that he represents. The Hierophant symbolizes entry into all types of institutions where there is a shared group identity.

Rather than the traditional three-tiered crown of the Hierophant, Kanye is wearing a crown of pygmy Kanyes, representing his identity as the source of his power. His scepter is made of a rolled-up $100 bill, and a golden emblem made by combining the Yeezy and Adidas logos. His robe is held together by sneaker laces, and on his feet are Yeezy Boost 750s - perhaps his most defining shoe to date.
