XIIII - Temperance
Astrological Correspondence: Sagittarius
Keywords: providing aid, healing, concentration, moderation
The Angel between heaven and earth blending different elements into a
harmonious substance represents a bridge between polarities like heaven
and earth, masculine and feminine, beginning and end. The combining of
varied substances serves as imagery for the merging of diverse forces
to create a new whole, for cooperation, coordination, a harmonious
balance, looking for a middle ground, achieving healing, and recovery.
Temperance signifies that moderation is necessary to modify passions
and maintain harmony in relationships, and to build on tolerance and
cooperation in groups. In a negative situation, Temperance
characteristics are indecision, inconstancy, excess, obsession, and
lack of control.
