General Meaning of the Temperance in the Upright Position
The angel in the picture of the Temperance is named symbolically Time. He or she is keeping two cups in the hands – the past and the future. And is pouring the present life from the cup to the cup. This card means time. And taking into account that the angel is not moving in the picture, it denoted slow time passing.
If you got the Temperance it means that you are able to strike a happy balance in any field of your life, initially between psychic and material natures. This card will also characterize you as a person who knows where to draw the line. You are extremely good at getting the proportions right. For example, this card may describe a pastry chef who knows and keeps the proportions to cook a delicious dessert.
The white garment symbolizes purity. And the big red wings refer to life and the powers it gives. The fact that the garment and wings are equal in size in the picture tells that there is no excessive use of any life resource – everything is balanced.
Also, this card is called a card of art and creative works, that needs time and a very attentive approach to work and takes time. Because the angel in the picture is mixing substances, he is in the process of creation.
The Temperance encourages you to be patient. It is not a situation when somebody restricts you on purpose. It is a necessary period of waiting when it seems that time has stopped. The Temperance denotes that you have to use this time with benefit for yourself while you are waiting. Think of your life, your needs, and desires, what you have and what you lack, and what you have to do.
The general meaning of the Tarot Temperance in the everyday life is
- setting limits
- slow passing of time
- striking a balance and good proportions in any field of your life
- no active actions, need to wait
