Astrology Sign-Sagittarius "The Temperance Card shows us the path of balance"
When Temperance arrives in a reading, it is often to bring the lesson of moderation & balance into our lives. It indicates that there are a number of a different, sometimes conflicting, extremes in our lives, which are useless to us on our own. These various elements must instead be brought together into one place, melted down in a great cauldron, and shaped into something new & better. Often, Temperance indicates the need to take the middle road, avoiding extremes and finding the balance between them....finding the common ground. Temperance is the card of eclecticism in all areas of the life. Spiritually it represents drawing a number of different belief systems to find the best of all of them which suits us. With regard to creativity, it brings with it an inundation of different influences for us to create from; most importantly, it suggests an eclecticism of skills, talents and passions, which...on their own...might not seem like much to us but when united together create something far greater & more useful. We should look to how we can combine our various skills and talents, rather than viewing them in isolation.
