The Temperance Tarot is a card that can reveal how you are doing in many spheres of your life, such as love, relationships, health, career, finances, and spirituality. Knowing what this card means and its different interpretations in the upright and reverse position will help you get the most out of your Tarot readings. Learn everything you need to know about the Temperance Tarot and what it can reveal to you.

Meaning of the Temperance Tarot

An angel appears on the Temperance Tarot card, standing on the edge of a lake, with his right foot in the water and the left foot firmly on the ground. He is surrounded by a beautiful landscape with blossoming lilies and green plants. You can also see a long path making its way up to the mountains where the sun rises bright and early. The water is clear, and it is quiet.

Who is the angel in this picture of tranquility? It might be Gabriel, the angel who sent the messages about the link between the earthly and the spiritual.

The angel’s feet, one in water and another on land, represent the material and the spiritual worlds. In his hands, there are two cups, and the angel is pouring water from one cup to the other, which represents the union between the subconscious and the earthly. Everything in the card speaks about balance and harmony, the connection between two opposing forces and taking caution before making major decisions.

You will need patience before making an important decision. Do not look for change and keep doing what you have been doing up until now, and it will all work out for you. The Temperance Tarot asks you to proceed with caution and respect moderation.

Upright meanings of the Temperance Tarot

Learn about the upright meanings of the Temperance Tarot in love, career, health, and spirituality.


When you see the Temperance Tarot in your love reading, know that it means that your relationship will benefit from balance. Learn to share love and compassion with each other and practice meeting your partner in the middle when an argument arises. If you are single, then this card could signify that you are investing too many efforts in other areas of your life. Think about whether you are ready to commit to a relationship or if you are not looking for anything serious.


If this card appears in your money and career readings, then it is time to set goals for yourself. It means now you will have the determination to put in the effort and patience to wait for the result. Do not take the first opportunity you see, but wait, as there are more exciting things coming your way soon. Be careful though to spend money in moderation during this time to protect your savings, because you might need them as you work toward your career goals.


It is time to find balance and moderation in how you approach your health. Do you tend to overeat or drink too much alcohol? The Temperance Tarot might be telling you to develop healthy habits. So, eat well, sleep enough, work, and exercise. Since moderation is the key to a healthy lifestyle, think about the areas of your health that you can improve and start working on them. Live a good life by practicing everything in moderation.


In the context of spirituality, the Temperance Tarot might be telling you to listen closely to your spirit guides. There is a reason why your intuition is telling you certain things. So, follow it to find balance and harmony. This card can also be a sign that you finally found a balance between your body, mind, and spirit. Do not rush the events in your life – know that everything happens when it is supposed to happen and trust your spirit guides.

Reverse meanings of the Temperance Tarot

Here are reverse meanings of the Temperance Tarot in your reading.


When it comes to your love life, do you see it as all or nothing? Black and white? There are a lot of in-betweens in relationships. So, when you see the Temperance Tarot in your reading, it might tell you to slow down and notice those gray areas. You cannot force love if it is not meant to happen. Take it easy, do not demand too much from your relationship, and remember that anyone can make mistakes. Relationships are all about finding balance and understanding.


You might be used to working on your own all the time. But the Temperance Tarot in reverse position can signify that you should show your abilities as a team player, so your superiors can recognize your efforts. Regardless of how much progress you are making at work now, keep in mind that your determination and hard work will not be overlooked. Be patient and you will receive recognition for your efforts.


When you see the Temperance Tarot in your health reading in reverse position, it could signify health problems now or in the near future. When you are healthy, your body and mind are in harmony and balance. And when this balance is shaken, problems can appear. Take care of your body, mind, and spirit, so you can avoid problems and maintain good health. Be positive and spread positive vibes around.


If the Temperance Tarot appears in reverse position in your spirituality reading, it might be a sign that you are very close to giving up on yourself. It may be because you feel like you cannot fulfill your needs. Your mind might be overcome with imbalance and chaos from the outside world, making it overwhelming for you to deal with. A good idea would be to meditate and look inward to see what is troubling you. Life is all about harmony. Once you find harmony within, you can also bring it into the world around you.
