XIV Temperance


(based on Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous)

Persevering with patience

yields a proper vision;

all things in moderation

makes for good intuition.

“I come with understanding.

to your appeal – an answer;

I have come to declare Truth

because you are beloved.” [1]

Angelines have mother’s love.

and with the “queen of the Angels”,

holds us close and keeps us well…

kisses us and makes us better.

Our guardian Angels

watch over us: all questions

resolved, all fears allayed,

all anxieties embraced

Blood enlists fidelity,

sweat entails persistence,

tears engage with compassion –

Temperance consummates.

Temptation will not avail…

“Then the devil left him

and, behold, angels came

and ministered to him.”[2]

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
