XIV Temperance (Sagittarius) ‘The Alchemy of Humanity’s Water & Wine’

XIV Temperance Major Arcana is a transformative alchemical card. Medieval alchemy was fundamentally concerned in transformation of the essence of things, usually from something base to something refined. The most obvious example is the attempt to turn lead into gold, but more broadly, alchemy can be understood as the attempt to purify and refine, not only with physical objects, but also esoterically and with the human soul itself.

Spiritually then, the alchemy of XIV Temperance concerns the transformation of the soul in this manner, specifically about taking parts of the soul and concentrating them into something wholly refined and beautifully unique.

III The Empress (Venus)

III Empress shadowed by King of Swords: the two of these cards together is about the integration and nurturing of the two energies, closing the gap between the Yin and the Yang, the combination creating a whole and becoming complete (our focus number nine). These two cards together combine emotional, physical, and intellectual. The female beauty who speaks truth plainly commands both respect and admiration. The Judge in a legal dispute is both discerning and understanding in his balanced and fair rulings.

VI The Lovers (Gemini)

Major Arcana VI The Lovers certainly sounds romantic doesn’t it? It must be about romance, it has the word ‘Lovers’ in the title of the card! Alas, I’ve never found anything remotely romantic to be found in this card historically in my readings, although many other readers have, and do treat this card as THE romantic catalyst card. Most often VI The Lovers is a connector card, or reads as a ‘connection’ between an array of possible partnerships. We have partnerships in celebration today, possibly Divinely inspired happy get-together’s with our Angel overseeing all in the VI The Lovers card. Basically both teams involved in the celebration with these two cards today, are all genuinely enjoying in each others happiness.

VI Wands ‘Victory’

This card is all about winning at any cost and involves the game players, cheaters, pretenders, controllers, frenemies and energy vampires we all have to interact within our lives. 6W is associated with propaganda, self-interest, hidden agendas, using other people and their resources for self benefit, and most often is my red flag card signifying ‘bullshit’ or ‘narcissist’ if 6W is representing a person.
