UPRIGHT

Moderation - Conscious & Unconscious Equilibrium - Joy - Serenity - Good Health

Temperance is a card of emotional and intuitive balance. The water depicted on the card indicates emotions and the connection to the subconscious.

This card suggests that compromise and cooperation are vital. Look for any opportunity to bring opposing parties together.

To temper can also mean to modify by adding a new component. By combining and recombining, we come up with the ideal mixture or solution. Temperance is the card of good health in all areas - physical, mental and emotional. When illness or dis-ease is a concern, Temperance holds out the promise of vitality and well-being.

REVERSED

Conflicts - Uncertainty - Inconsistency - Hostility - Agitation

When Temperance appears reversed in a spread it is indicating that energies are being scattered and wasted. 

Elements refuse to mix. The merging of groups and families do not work. Creating a new business by merging two smaller companies fail. The environment is toxic. There is a lack of substance to make the dream a reality. On a more personal level, there is hot temper and impatience, and an unwillingness to unify and mix in.

Perhaps there has been a distinct lack of judgment shown in a situation which has caused emotional stress and tension. The message:  look before you leap.
