Someone’s using drugs or alcohol to excess. It’s time to get back on that diet.

Your Life Reading

Relationships

Set superficial relationships aside. Pursue trust and deep intimacy - the subtle blending of two people into one. Bring people together. Commit to introductions, parties, or gatherings. Seek out groups.

Work

Many hands make work easier. Call meetings. Get input from every level at every step. If everyone has a hand in defining an effort, then everyone will feel ownership and investment. Moderate your tendency toward all-or-nothing work habits.

Spirituality

Some spiritual advisors recommend extreme practices, from fasting to abstinence, as a means of boosting spiritual awareness. Consider the potential value of moderation in all things. You can value what is right here, right now, without craving more or surpassing healthy limits.

Personal Growth

Young people want to toss out tradition and forge ahead. Older people are more conservative. Between these extremes lies a healthier middle ground. Define the polarities and then ask, "What lies between?"

Symbols and Insights

In many RWS-inspired decks, a symbol on the angel's chest suggests the fiery spirit enshrined in stable matter. What meaning do your possessions have beyond their physical value?

Temperance often pours the contents of two cups together, blending water, water and wine, wine and milk, or even fire and water. How might blending two opposites resolve your challenge today?

Occult decks frequently draw Temperance with one foot on stable land and one foot in emotional water. A dive-in-or-get-off-the-dock approach assumes extremes are the only options. Are they?

The flowers seen in RWS-inspired illustrations suggest their namesake, Iris, the goddess of the rainbow. What would happen if you reduced your situation to its most basic components, as a rainbow breaks down white light?
