☆♥*♥☆ Tarot Card XX~Temperance ☆♥*♥☆

by Lorraine Valente

Tarot Card XX~Temperance~Symbolic of Sagittarius

In the Rider-Waite version on the right, you see the Angel Temperance~Archangel Michael. He sports the solar symbol on his head with light rays streaming outward from it. In each hand a cup is held, one cup is silver (feminine) and one is gold (masculine). Water pours and vibrates (waves) and is blended from one cup to the other. This blending of fire and water, masculine and feminine and the conscious and unconscious also symbolizes conception. The number 14 is the most fertile day of a woman’s cycle. It is also the approximate number of days it takes from the New Moon to the Full Moon each month.

Salvador Dali
 A lovely version of Angel Temperance, on the left, is painted by a favorite artist, Salvador Dali. Compromises need to be made to achieve balance in relating. Drawing Temperance means adapting to circumstances, accommodating as well as gathering facts and expanding ones experiences. Negotiation, balancing alternatives, and moderation are symbolized. Blending, creating, alchemy, and successfully combining material to create something new are suggested. Negatively, blind faith, restlessness, being insensitive to the feelings of others, excess and feelings of self righteousness are possible.

The Symbol of Temperance may appear in a reading during a time when emotional balance is required. The expression “patience is a virtue” applies here. There may be emotional days ahead or a need to balance and/or adapt our emotions to bring about positive and “creative” results. If this card turns up next to the Empress or the Sun, a conception or baby may be on the way!
