As Case indicates: primarily the union of opposites: positive and negative, active and passive, male and female. To me, this seem plausible since the HP immediately follows Temperance on the Middle Pillar. He gives a couple of other possibilities, which may be more of a stretch. Being a primitive form of the final Hebrew letter, Tau, it may suggest that the HP foreshadows the culmination of all the 22 Trumps. Also, it may refer to Hecate, the patroness of crossroads.
