Temperance

Meaning

When the Temperance card appears in your day, the message is one of balance. You also should expect to see some harmony in your life over the situation at hand. A little bit of big picture reflection is a good idea when you see this card, as this card embodies the spirit of the Mutable Fire Sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the zodiac traveller, and also the zodiac philosopher. This is not an overt action card, no excess energy is required on your part to resolve your situation. In fact, the opposite is cautioned. This card brings the message that it may be time to step back a little bit, and exercise some caution on a key area of your life. Sometimes this card can be a message of moderation. If you have been consuming too much in the way of spending, drinking, or substance use, this card is sending the message to curb things back. With the movement of water between the two cups this card also sends the message that some traveling may be present when this card appears. As we are seeing water flowing back and forth from one cup to another, the message of this card could also indicate travel is on the horizon. You may also experience situations with foreign connections when Temperance arrives in your day.

Symbolism

The Temperance is a card that shows a robed figure holding two cups and passing water back and forth between the cups with their feet in the water. This is a card about peace and harmony, and a joyful outlook on the big picture. And this is exactly why the Temperance Card is directly connected to the zodiac sign Sagittarius, the zodiac philosopher and traveller of this big wide world. The robed figure is a winged figure, suggesting that the figure in the Temperance card is an angel. The message from Temperance is a message of moderation and patience. We see the water flowing abundantly from the stream, and back and forth between the two cups. Cups represent water signs and abundance in love, and so the message from this card is that love is flowing freely, but moderation and patience is required in order to see your goals. With the water flowing freely between the two cups, this card sometimes represents literal movement, and travel may be in the works if Temperance arrives in your Daily Tarot.
