Temperance stands for balance, harmony and moderation. The angel depicted in the card is actually the Archangel Michael, the angel of healing. He has one foot on dry land, the symbol of the material world and the other in the water, a metaphor for the spiritual realm. The angel appears to be pouring water from one cup into another, an allusion to the act of putting theory into practice. It suggests that you should take the middle road, avoiding extremes at all costs. The sun rising over the mountain in the background symbolizes renewal, the new dawn after a long period of turmoil.
Work: Aiming high is a must but steer away from having over-inflated expectations of yourself and others. Don't look for ways to fast-track your way up the corporate and/or social leader. Take one step at a time and be patient. Don't forget that good things come to those who wait.
Love: In order to enjoy a balanced and harmonious relationship, you must first make peace with yourself. If you've done something wrong, now is a good time to ask for forgiveness. Make amends to the person you hurt— including yourself. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
