What is the Temperance Card?

The fourteenth trump card of the Major Arcana, Temperance, represents balance, harmony, and moderation. Temperance is usually represented by an androgynous or female angel pouring liquid from one container to another, standing with one foot in water and one foot on land. The angel’s transferring of the liquid from one to another represents the diluting of water with wine—a historic act of virtue and Temperance.

The Temperance card depicts all of an angel's suns (and wings), although they are not standard angel wings. Angels are traditionally depicted with wings to represent God's strength. Like the Death and Devil cards, the Temperance card demonstrates that things are not always as they appear. They explain how humans can become perplexed about reality since they are divine beings who can manifest their world.

The Temperance card is frequently associated with healing. The human body needs to integrate our emotions so that we do not “shut down,” It can also symbolize a two-person partnership. The angel's other hand is raised to her lips. Offering a joyful yell, while the other is pointed forward. This means encouraging the reader to appreciate their spiritual nature fully.

The Temperance card teaches us that everything is in perpetual flux and that the universe is more flexible than rigid. It teaches us how to employ this ever-changing energy that moves between the extreme opposites of being. And also non-being in a continually shifting flow to better our reality.

The concept of temperance refers to the transition from one procedure, state, or experience to another. The Temperance card should be thought of as symbolizing “the way” rather than “away,” because its connotation is about balance. It's critical to maintain a sense of balance in your life, whatever that means to you.

Examine the elements on the card's sides to figure out what that would be for you. Between water and rocks, the angel stands. The sort of water you drink affects how you feel emotionally, while the type of rocks you walk on decides how grounded you are. If you favor one side over the other, consider what this means for your life and how you may ensure that both sides are equally represented.

Another interpretation of the Temperance tarot card is that you have waited patiently and now it is time to reap the rewards. Being moderate, however, does not imply that you will never feel emotional or express your feelings. During this time, you are caring and faithful. Water supports life in the Temperance tarot card. As a result, this card represents both healing and fertility. Life's streams flow from above to below, from the heavens to the earth. And from the divine mind to humanity, indicating a higher-consciousness channel flowing into a lower-consciousness channel. This channel promotes inner growth and purification.

In the reversed position, the Temperance card can indicate that you are refusing to embrace the gifts and lessons of your past. Also, you must spread your wings and fly. The most excellent approach to this is to take advantage of these priceless times for self-reflection. And recognize that everything we encounter helps us grow and better. Let go of what you can't change and concentrate on what you can, such as taking the time to consider your choices more carefully.

When the Temperance card comes in a Love Tarot reading, it could indicate that you've taken a step back and reconsidered a situation. Temperance in a love reading implies that there is an unresolved underlying issue.

It's possible that you need to reconsider your involvement in this disagreement. You may have been putting off dealing with the issue. This is because you didn't think it was significant. But it's preferable to confront it now to avoid damaging your relationship. You might now be able to see the problem from a different perspective. And reach a more reasonable conclusion.

It may be time to forgive individuals who have been troubling you. This is because they are unaware of the actual problem. This card can indicate a phlegmatic disposition in your love life. This makes it difficult for you to assert yourself and deal with turbulent people. Finding the medium ground between the extremes is what temperance is all about. It's all about self-control, honesty, balance, and moderation.

In the upright position, Temperance represents balance and patience in life. It embodies the importance of waiting patiently to achieve one’s goals.

Temperance shows that you can keep your inner values and remain calm and virtuous even in the face of great stress and obstacles. The Arcana embodies seeing the whole of a situation—taking in all sides and perspectives and refraining from giving into extremes or emotions. By combining our own experiences with the resources and ideas around us, we can achieve new heights.

When reversed, Temperance indicates a lack of this vital balance in our lives.

Perhaps your connections with your parents or children have been strained recently. Yet this card indicates that you have accepted and forgiven their flaws. You may have been less than understanding about a sensitive matter in the past. But a tolerant and merciful approach is something you can appreciate today.

It's the ideal time for you to take a step back and consider your options. Reflection has several benefits, one of which keeps you on course. You've had a lot of adventures recently, but there are lessons to be learned as well. Being still permits you to achieve clarity, which allows you to take effective action.

Maybe we’ve overindulged ourselves to dangerous degrees, or find ourselves falling into extreme impatience or rapid mood swings. Or, perhaps we’ve found ourselves at a moral crossroads, tormented by conflicts of interest and indecision. In this position, the Temperance card reminds us to try and restore an inner sense of harmony to our lives, before this imbalance consumes us.
