The Major Arkana card, marked with number fourteen.
Temperance is a Tarot Card marked with the number fourteen, associated with the astrological Sagittarius. Most of the decks on this card show a woman holding two identical vessels in her hands and concentrating on pouring water or wine from one to the other. On the deck we are discussing, instead of a woman, there is a winged angel pouring a trickle of water between two golden cups. One foot of the angel is immersed in a lake or pond and the other is on land. This way of positioning the characters suggests a perfect balance between the two elements. The character symbolically stands on the border of two worlds that influence and complement each other. The character’s face expresses focus on the activity he is doing. The angel pays close attention not to drop a single drop of water from either of the two cups. Two golden goblets correspond to two golden flowers bent over the surface of the water, which symbolize flowering and growth thanks to cooperation and mindfulness.
