Featuring the XIVth card in the Major Arcana series is the Temperance. We see an angel, with one foot on dry land, representative of the material world, and one foot in the water, representative of the subconscious. In her hands, she holds two cups which she uses to mix water. The cups represent the sub- and super-conscious minds.

In a reading, she denotes balance, internal as well as external. She helps us calm our mental and physical self. It signifies if the querent needs to bring about some tempering in two contrasting situations. Basically, it means only with a calm and balanced mind will the querent find answers or solution to his dilemma.

It can be related to any field, be it love or career or in life in general. You need to cultivate the patience to handle any unwanted situation. It can also mean the querent is someone who has reached such level of balance, someone who is centered.

Keywords: Cooperation, restraint, calibration, balance, moderation, compromise, health.
