There is an angel and a pool of water. The angel is pouring a fluid between two cups.
The Fool continues his spiritual journey and thinks about how he can reconcile aspects of material and spiritual needs. He also ponders about death and birth. It is during this point of time that he sees a winged figure standing with one foot in a brook and the other on a rock. The figure is pouring something from one flask to another. Upon closer inspection, the Fool realized that the two items are fire and water!
The Fool got really curious and asked the Angel how she managed to mix water and fire together. The Angel told him that by using the correct vessel and right proportions, fire and water can be mixed together. The Fool was intrigued and asked if other opposites can be mixed in the same manner. The Angel indicated that all opposites can be mixed in the same manner and made to harmonize. The Angel further explained that only a lack in will and disbelief in possibility of unity will keep the opposites apart.
After hearing this, the Fool realizes that he has been the person keeping opposites apart and this is the reason why he has felt that his material and spiritual worlds can’t seem to coexist together. The Fool realizes that he could have merge his material and spiritual worlds together and all it takes is the right proportions and a right vessel.
The Temperance card is a card on moderation. It advises one that the seemingly irreconcilable opposites may not be that irreconcilable after all. Change or modify your belief and you may well be on your way to reconcile irreconcilable issues. To me, this card simple inspires me: you are what you think and i think beliefs play a really important role in shaping of life. A person is only limited by his or her beliefs and without the limiting beliefs, much more greatness can be achieved.
So, if you are still being self-limited by your beliefs, do believe that all things in life are actually possible.
