Today’s card is from the The Waite-Colman Smith Deck
Temperance – XIV
A golden haired winged figure stands pouring water from one golden goblet to another. Dressed in a white gown, the figure has one foot on land, and one in a stream. A road leads from the stream to the mountains in the far distance on the left. In the mountains, a golden light shines. On the right, green stalks rise from the ground with yellow flowers blooming.
The Temperance Card is right on time with Mercury in Cancer AND Retrograde. Talk about never saying the right thing when it comes to how you feel! So what do we do? Pull back, come together and find balance. And just like last year, it’s not easy. Whatever you’re working on, keep on keeping on. Don’t make any grand changes, don’t make any snap assumptions. You have to treat it like science: make one small variable change and track the results. It’s highly possible that whatever you perceive as problems don’t need to be fixed. The instructions are probably translated from six other languages – poorly.
When you ‘re ready to move forward, center, find your balance, then go. You don’t have to be cold or methodical about it. Your emotional feelings are perfectly valid as long as you add a dose of practicality on top. You may have to compromise, and that’s OK too.
Just remember: All work and no play is bad for you – so is all play and no work. Go play feel, do, dance, sing, pray, work and fly – and keep the balance within you.
