Find Your Temperance

I’m not into much suspicion, magic, voodoo stuff, etc… However, I do enjoy the thoughts that these, what some might consider, “made up” things bring to my mind. They have their merits and shouldn’t be regarded as “made up” just because we haven't been given an opportunity to see it differently.


As with everything in life, until we witness it, it can be hard to prove its worthiness to help us achieve greater prosperity and intuition. I will say in addition to the occasional tarot card reading I read my horoscope every day from two different sources! I love the idea of being prepared for what the universe might unleash on me during the day. Even if it's false, that exercise, the preparation of my mind gives me interesting thoughts for my meditation shortly after.


Today I decided I was going to see what the tarot world had to say and so I just drew one card and it was “Temperance”.


By definition, temperance is regarded as self-restraint. I enjoy both definitions because I feel the need for more self-restraint as well as what is written below.



“Temperance card is in Sagittarius, a teacher of truth, passion, patience, and all that is beautiful. There were aspects of your being that were saturated with too much water or fire energy. Temperance is coming into perfectly balanced alignment with soul work, creativity, self-care, family, social, and professional life. There is ease and harmony day to day.

At this time, you have already found this balance, or are discovering how to create this space within your life. Previously you had no idea how this was possible, but now you are understanding the balance of elements to develop roots. As you release what is not in alignment with the heart, life responds by celebrating your wisdom.

Be fully immersed in truth. This is where magick grows. When you are following the laws of the universe, life responds to what is held within your moment to moment vibration.”


I pulled this card with the intention that it would advise me on the world’s current situation. I started to write this thinking in that way and only realizing now in this paragraph that it was meant for me.


What I took from it, as it went on with more clarification…


  • Be fully immersed in truth.

The truth is knowing myself and finding comfort and contentment with myself. My soul is the truth and I will allow its light to illuminate the world around me. This truth provides me a level of protection from the hidden brain game of the logical brain vs emotional brain.
