“Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.” –Thomas Aquinas
Today’s Tarot is Temperance or “Daughter of the Reconcilers,” associated with Sagittarius. This version from our funky Housewives Tarot shows a cake being mixed up with a few surprise ingredients. With Temperance, it’s always about getting the right mix; too much or too little of individual components just leaves an unappetizing mess.
We’ll often see Temperance when thee is a need for moderation—too much drinking, too many demands, too little flexibility. She’s your hint to be inclusive. Like a Sagittarius, look for the bigger picture. A steady hand and clear head is required for the best outcome.
You’ve got to honor all the ingredients, even those not especially to your liking. Too much of that Instant Anger may spoil the flavor, but a sprinkle under the right circumstances helps it rise to the occasion. Each ingredient has it’s appropriate place and proportion. The secret is in the mix.
How’s your cake tasting?
