It is because of Temperances elusive nature that I feel there is a mysterious nature to the people who have this as an archetype as well. One may call it an enigma as well as harmony between all things. A meeting place in the middle, if you will. Where there is a place and a space where all things come together and belong together. It is the beginning, the middle and the end simultaneously.
It reminds me that without the challenging times in our lives we would not have the appreciation when things are amazing. Or remembering when things were good can help us through the less positive times. It is the place where emotions do not define who you are but rather are an invitation to see where you may be out of harmony with yourself or the universe. It is a place to look beyond what is appearing today and see the magnificent being you truly be regardless of how you may ‘feel’.
What would it take to be in total allowance of everything that is and everything that is not?
Temperance is also the calm in the eye of the storm. It is not uncommon that when chaos is all around you, you could be the one trying to hold others together. Remember though the importance of taking care of yourself first because it is way easier to fill other peoples tanks when yours are full. Rather than the usual way of trying to take care of others when you are empty.
Would you be willing to take one hour a day or one full day this week just to nurture you?
Love Yourself You Are Amazing!
