|Original Rider Waite Tarot|
It won’t be a surprise to you all that I've chosen the Original Rider Waite Tarot to pull my daily card from. And for today I've got Temperance: The beautiful calm and serene angel who is standing with one foot in the water and the other one on the land. This card always reminds me of the Star card. Only while the woman from the Star is emptying her jugs completely, the angel of Temperance is pouring the liquid from one cup into the other. There is a sense of caution in this card as if the angel is afraid to spill a drop and also as if he or she is testing the waters before walking in. The Fool which I've pulled yesterday would have jumped in right away. Perhaps this card is telling me besides to be spontaneous and carefree, it is also wise to remain prudent. Not to act without a second thought of the consequences. This was the message from the Stag (Wildwood Tarot). As I come to think it, this card is making a perfect blend between the playful childlike energy of The Fool and the responsibility of the Stag. I just love it when my readings fit together.
