Temperance is a card of bringing balance into your life. This card shows that you are aware of your goals and have a clear vision of how you’re going to achieve them. It also suggests that you’re in no rush and are biding your time in order to cover everything and get the best possible outcome. You’ve thought everything through thoroughly. In doing this, you will get a better understanding of the journey that you are taking. This is a journey of learning and you’re enjoying every second of it. Temperance urges you to carry on with the way that you’re handling the situation and promises that everything will come together for you in the long-term.
Temperance also asks that you be patient on your journey. Sometimes things can get over-whelming and you can feel as if you’re getting nowhere but if you act with timing and precision, everything should run perfectly. Patience is a virtue and is a good quality to possess. If things aren’t moving at a fast-enough pace for you, don’t try to rush it along. Just go with the flow and you will soon see the results that you seek.
Temperance can also suggest that a period of reflection is needed in your life in order to re-assess your situation and your priorities. You know what needs to be done and how to achieve your goals but sometimes we all need to take a step back and look at it from a different perspective. In doing this, you may find a flaw in your original plan or you may even find an easier option. There is nothing wrong with taking some time to rest and reflect, if you don’t, you may make things harder for yourself in the long run.
Temperance - Reversed
Conflict, lack of harmony, hostility, frustration, impatience, disagreements, restlessness, lack of vision
The Temperance card in reversed form indicates that something is out of balance in your life and is creating tension and negativity. You may already know where this imbalance is coming from. If not, look to the other cards in the reading and they should give you an idea. Once you’ve figured out the source of the imbalance you must look deep down into the root of the problem in order to resolve it. When doing this, you must stay patient and take a gentle approach, otherwise, you may make the problem worse.
This card in a reversed position can also suggest that you’re lacking in vision, whether this be short-term or long-term. This in itself could be the cause of the imbalance that you are experiencing. Temperance asks that you re-evaluate your goals and make a clear and precise plan of how you can work to achieve them. Also, you must take some time to reflect on your situation and make changes where necessary in order to restore balance and harmony into your life.
