Learning Tarot Major Arcana Temperance


Temperance ( XIIII )

The number fourteen symbolizes a new cycle a new step.

The winged character on the card decants water from a blue jug into a jug red. But is it really water ? Considering the position, the water should fall to the ground.

In reality, there is a spiritual or ethereal world as reported by the wings of the character. We can suppose that the water is pure energy. But what kind of energy ?


The actor of this card balances the energy with instinct or action with reflection or feelings.
