“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ~Rumi
Do you ever feel like you are in the eye of a hurricane while everyone and everything else is spinning around you? How do find composure within that chaos? The Temperance card of the Tarot holds the key to moderation, reminding us of our vitality and how to balance our mental, physical and emotional well-being. In the image above (drawn by Pamela Colman Smith), we see Raphael, the angel of healing. He stands with one foot in the water and one foot on the shore, illustrating his bridge-building capabilities. He is literally dancing between worlds. He pours water from one cup into another and back again as a symbol of his emotional equilibrium. He releases his feelings in accordance with the other elements in his life and recombines them over and over again to find a new heart-based response. Temperance teaches us to travel the middle road in order to avoid extremes. It is a blending of two ideas or materials into a new form. This is alchemy and it requires optimism, enthusiasm and confidence.
When Temperance arises in a reading, questions to consider are: What is out of balance in your life? How are you bringing together the resources that are available to you? Where do you need to practice moderation? Where do you need more healing?
