My Relationship with Temperance
Temperance to me often means that I am trying to mediate or balance opposing forces in my life, or the current situation. I am experimenting, weighing up, the best approach, balancing each alternative. Temperance usually appears after the Death card for me, often to remind me what I have learnt at the close of a situation. How will I proceed so as not to repeat the experience ? On a physical level, If I am giving a reading Temperance tells me that the seeker is stressed or even has problems with circulation that need to be addressed. The question Temperance poses is can I hold my nerve ? How can I balance my life & pass the test that I am being presented ? …
Why must you now experiment with a new approach ?
