Temperance Tarot Reading

This week's tarot card is TEMPERANCE from the Rider Waite deck. Here, we see an angelic being with one foot in the water and the other on the shore while water flows between two cups—one above and one below—symbolizing the mixture of spirit and earthly matters. A path leads toward the mountains with a golden, glowing crown in the sky above.
Temperance is a card of harmony, balance, and synthesis. A strong spiritual foundation supports daily life, and worldly development supports spiritual growth. Now is the time to bring these elements of existence together with mindful awareness.
Today’s message is also a call for moderation and a blending of ideas. Temperance suggests that finding a middle ground both in your affairs and within will lead you in the right direction. There is an opportunity to harmonize desire with need, to hear another’s point of view, and to practice a willingness for compromise where it is necessary AND good for all concerned.
Temperance asks you to draw upon the intimate relationship that exists between heaven and earth (as above, so below; as within, so without…) to align your spiritual wisdom with your daily experiences.
