At its highest possible level, Temperance is a card which marks spiritual transformation – the moment when all of the pieces of understanding we have gathered in our studies fly up, in chaos, into the air. When they land, we shall discover that they have formed a perfect pattern of life and living. This card can, when really well-dignified, signal a massive breakthrough into a totally fresh consciousness. We shall have struggled, fought, grappled for understanding, and maybe suffered more than a little, but all of that effort will become worthwhile and important. Of course, the number of times that Temperance’s appearance will indicate such a major development are vastly outweighed by the times the card shows more mundane matters arising – but even on the purely material level, this one is the ‘Come together’ card. It shows whole areas of life falling into place, and assuming their rightful pattern. Sometimes, it will indicate that a problem finally yields its own resolution. In any matter where this Major Arcana card rules, there will have been a need for patience and for moderate behaviour.
So, on a day where Temperance rules, we must expect that things will just begin to fall into place. We will probably task better than usual, and therefore make good inroads on our ordinary work. New ways of dealing with things will occur to us. Fresh perspectives will appear. And, as a result, our lives will shift closer to harmony and balance. We can help all of this along by examining the polarities which exist within us – everything in life comes initially as a polarity. Male -female; dark- light; good – bad; kind – cruel; birth – death. Life emerges as we attempt to shade the space between each pair of opposites with the colours of understanding. The more we learn, the more intense our colours become. So to recognise the polarities within ourselves is to know ourselves better – and therefore to add to our personal rainbow. What do you love? What do you hate? And in between what is there – like, dislike, have no reaction to….these nuances of response are your living colours. And the more you get to know them, without standing in judgement, the better you know yourself. On Temperance’s day, expect things to come together. And do a little work on yourself.

Psychic Abilities : Something else that you will want to think about when it comes to a spiritual awakening is that this type of awakening causes us to grow both personally and spiritually, but it also encourages us to open up our hearts and souls to those around us. Spiritual awareness allows us to become more compassionate and thoughtful about others, as well as their hardships. In terms of a psychic awakening you are not going to end up opening your life to one of service, you are going to feel the need to help others by using your new found psychic abilities.

Angel Encyclopedia: JOHN MILTON paints a romantic picture of good and fallen angels in his epic treatment of the fall of ADAM AND EVE in Paradise Lost and the redemption in Paradise Regained. Milton was steeped in the works of Spenser, calling him ‘my original,’ and ‘a better teacher than Scotus or Aquinas.’ Milton was inspired by Spensers mission as a poet to embody moral lessons in beautiful imaginative forms. There is a striking analogy between Miltons interpretation of the struggle of forces involved in Adams fall and the representation of virtue under trial in the person of Sir Guyon (Faerie Queene, Book II). Both advocate temperance as the supremacy of the rational over the passionate principle in the soul.
Tarot for Beginners: Perhaps the most commonly misunderstood card in the Tarot is the Death card. Almost never about literal death, this card is instead associated with change, endings and beginnings, resolution, and reflection.

Tarot Triumphs: The Star is akin to Temperance in that an angel in the former and a naked girl in the latter pour water from two jugs. But here the water is poured out, one jug pouring into the waters of what could be a river or lake, while the other pours water onto the ground. This is a card where nothing is kept back. Nakedness, openness, and giving forth characterize the figure of the Star. She can be interpreted as hope, generosity, and healing. Perhaps she is also a sign of female beauty and sexuality. But the actual name of the card is the Star, so the naked girl herself is most probably an emblem of the biggest and brightest star shown in the constellation of (usually) seven other stars. I think her nakedness is more a symbol of the soul than of sexuality; stars were often believed to be souls that had migrated from human life to the heavens, and the bird on the tree usually symbolizes a messenger from the world of souls. Looking at the Star in this way, we come to a sense of transcendent beauty rather than an earthly one, and to a sign that the flow of life connects this world with celestial spirit. There is much to be pondered here.
