The Temperance card: Spiritual Balance and Harmony
I love the temperance card because it talks about what really matters in life: harmony, balance and moderation. I think happiness is directly related on how we can apply the elements of this tarot card in our everyday life. We need to achieve the balance between our physical body and our spiritual soul.
Every time I feel stressed or overwhelmed by worries, I turn to this card for advice, and it brings me a great sense of calm, and purpose. This card shows us that we can only find a deeper spiritual meaning in our existence if we have a positive outlook in life. It’s important to find the inner peace that we all need to bring harmony into our life. We need to acknowledge and let go of any addictions that are getting in the way of us living a balanced life. Temperance show us that we can not be dependent on anything outside ourselves to make us happy.
We can accomplish great things if we take the advice from this card. Temperance teach us to be patient and live in the present, cherish our time, and not be anxious about the past or future. In order to find balance, we need to do what we want right in that moment, get in the habit of paying attention to the small details around us, and appreciate every moment. We need to understand that the past cannot be changed, and the future will inevitably turn into the present.
Temperance also represents self analysis and meditation. When we meditate, we are able to connect to our inner voice, and maintain a positive perspective in every situation. With a balanced mind, it is easier to find the peace within us to make the right choices.
