The Temperance Card
I am the temperance card, the angel that blends the light with the shadow, heat with the cold, oil with water. I call for restraint and moderation. I balance the light with the dark, mix and blend, change and transform.
The universe is perfectly and exquisitely balanced, everything in its right and proper place. But there are times in life when we know things aren’t quite as harmonious and stable as we may have wished. Often this can be a time of change and transition. The feelings we experience when moving from one state to another. A time to rebalance and recalibrate once more.
This is one of the key messages and qualities of this magical and mystical card. An image that typically depicts an angel holding two vessels of gold and silver pouring and charging water from one to the next. In many ways an alchemical symbol of transformation and reformulation.
The questions that we’re invited to explore when this heavenly being shows up within a reading often brings a message to change our way, withdraw from negative habits and deeds that are potentially detrimental to our health and wellbeing. A nonjudgmental calling to address and rebalance, a vital and important sign to take a new direction and invitation to change course.
I like to think of the angel as the voice of our higher self, gently encouraging us to mix things up a little, a friendly calling to bring our awareness within and take note! A request to ask more profound, more soul searching questions to help us to transform our lives for the better.
Like all angelic encounters, these celestial connections bring a message from the divine. Let us take the time to quiet our mind and allow the voice of the angel, our higher consciousness to guide us onto a more fruitful and balanced path. A life where we are fearless to continually surrender old patterns of thinking to transform, adapt and rebalance our mind, body and spirit.
