On the ninth day of December, my solstice advent gave to me… Temperance.
From the desire to gain new perspectives from a sacrifice comes the true integration of balance in our every day lives. Temperance is one of my favorite major arcana cards. I love how it takes two sides, light and dark, good and bad, positive and negative, and blends the two seemingly different items into a who new third item. This is what it is to integrate items into a true personality.
One of my other loves is productivity. I love trying to clear the clutter and distractions so my workflows run smoothly and get me the output I desire. This is one result of Temperance, where I use my brain, my life and the tools I use to synthesize a new pattern out of it all. Temperance is a fantastic idea and card to move yourself forward from accepting the past you, to understanding what you need to carry on in the future, to making a change and putting it into action.
As 2020 comes to a close, how did you adapt to this crazy year? Was there anything you learned to blend into your personal life or productivity habits? How does Temperance influence your life? Please let me know by emailing me.
