Temperance: Making Adjustments


I don’t think we’ve ever looked at Temperance in depth. Let’s have a good gander now, shall we? Continue reading


Temperance: Patron Saint Of Cooking


For the past few weeks I’ve been obsessed, OBSESSED, with googling recipes for this crazy new diet I’m on. You could say that I like eating. In my younger days I planned to have written on my tombstone: It was all about the food! I never just want to be healthy, I want to enjoy the road I travel to get there.

If ever there was a patron saint of cooking I figure it would have to be good ol’ Temperance. Look at him mixing things together there in the card. He is the master of fancy cuisine, cocktails and other concoctions. Helps you find a healthy balance. And encourages general well-being. Bless him.

Do you like to cook or eat or both?

Temperance: Forty Reasons It’s Great To Be Forty!


A friend of mine turned the big 4-0 the other day. It’s a tricky number 40. At 20 you have your whole life ahead of you and 30 still seems full of possibilities no matter how much you’ve stuffed things up so far. But at 40 you feel like you need to have crossed a few things off your to-do list. At this point it’s good to remind yourself what you HAVE achieved. To take a step back and look how far you’ve come.

Adjusting to getting older is Temperance card territory. So I want to celebrate forty things that are great about being 40. Continue reading

Temperance: Keeping Your Balance In The Aftermath Of The Boston Marathon Bombing Tragedy

I was going to do a post today on the Tarot of the Boston Marathon bombings but the truth is I don’t have the heart. I feel unwilling to use Tarot cards to tell yet another sad story about a horrendous tragedy that has captured the world’s attention. My instinct is to focus on the good not the evil. To highlight the heroic actions of the many rather than the cowardly hateful actions of the few. And it turns out I’m not alone…

Yesterday Patton Oswalt an American stand-up comedian, writer and actor posted the following message on his Facebook page:

Boston. Fucking horrible.  Continue reading
