Temperance - Major Arcana Card #14

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

XIV. Temperance

The Temperance card distinguishes itself as a warning and a reminder. You may feel strain – an awkward tugging inside – deciphering decisions to make in matters involving an intricate amalgamation of the heart’s desires and a practical world. Your willful wish will manifest, but not within the timeline you’ve anticipated. Your task is to integrate and balance an abundance of ideas and feelings that are crucial components to the current question… patience must persist through the conflict of duality. If reversed, an advancing act can be made with a level of detachment.

Suggested prompts:

upright: self-control; patience

right: discipline; willpower

left: restraint; limit

reversed: indulgence; expectance
