Temperance, The Angel of Our Better Nature

December 17, 2012

“What we strive for in perfection is not what turns us into the lit angel we desire.” ~David Whyte

With a little rest after the Death card the Archetypal Tarot Podcast explores the beginning of the rebirth cycle with Temperance - the fourteenth card of the Major Arcana. Julienne Givot and Cyndera Quackenbush discuss the Angel archetype and the healing and recovery that can take place internally and even below conscious awareness. At the end of our second row, the Realm of Equilibrium, we have a resolution to the ongoing theme of opposites. Here, two elements are blended to create "the third thing" that mediates and transforms opposing realities. Listen to the podcast for more on this next step of the journey.
