Perhaps his hand on his staff, which touches the "ground", is his link to the earth, while the other hand is open to the heavens. The Hierophant in my head stands for organized religion in the way that the High Priestess stands for the more pagan kind of spirituality - and having one hand on the earth and one hand in the heavens is a good way for him to be the link between God and the Heavens, and the rest of us.

I really like what DeaconBlues said, here:

I kind of think that it's almost as if he's been confined by the boundaries of organized religion, like he can't or won't stray outside what has been prescribed by his Church.
