The Temperance is the tarot card that brings tranquility to our lives. We get so caught up in our frantic lifestyles that we are always in a rush to get somewhere. We are never completely at peace, and this affects our rationality adversely. What this card tells us, is that sometimes we need to energize ourselves by way of relaxation and moderation. The seemingly random events in our life fall into a certain pattern; this pattern needs to be finetuned for emotional stability and vitality. We focus so hard on thinking logically, that we almost forget to think intuitively. We need to learn the art of aligning our mind with our body and soul, and use this union to bring out the results we desire. When we are able to do this, we will automatically feel a sense of composure, as though we can sail through the stormiest sea with sheer willpower and inner peace. In a reading, this card signals a healing catharsis that is needed, and the subtle shifts in our life that we need to bring about to effect this.
Pace yourself today and get more done than you might imagine as the day begins. It’s all right to be tired from time to time. It doesn’t have to cripple all your plans for the day. Maintain a sensible balance, remember to eat healthy, take a short break once and a while, and don’t aim too high. There’s plenty of work to be done that you can handle with ease.
The Tower is the tarot card that indicates sudden and colossal change, which is not always welcome. We have not had time to prepare for the situation, so we are inclined to be reluctant to accept it. This card acts as a wake-up call, alerting us to the fact that we have become so rigid in our thinking, that we are unable to see the signs of the brewing storm. In this scenario, we are advised to take care of ourselves, and absorb the learning that the situation corresponds to. Since the change is not a nominal one, it will cause considerable upheaval in our lives, and jolt us into reality from our dream world. Our values, our expectations, our goals – the thought that all of these may not turn out the way we want them to be is an unpleasant one, and hits our ego hard. In a reading, this card indicates the occurrence of a long overdue change, and tells us to rearrange our thoughts in a way that makes the change pleasant and effective. We just need to remember that this change was needed to direct us along the right path.
The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause.
