Tarot of the Crone
XIV ~ TEMPERANCE
The Crone Speaks:
A night-cloaked figure walks a slim green path. The path is illuminated and alive, arising from the figure and leading her forward. She builds the living power within her self, through drawing and combining the powers of fire and of ice. She shall not burn in the fire, nor shall she be cut by ice. Not as long as she can touch but not be taken by them. Through her acts and her intent, she creates a path, a life. She undertakes the journey to save her life, by living it consciously every day.
I walk in Beauty
I walk with Power
And I create my path
With every step
Temperance is a dynamic process, a moving magic. No one-time deals and youíre done for good. Itís not so static or simple, living your life like you mean it.
Meaning is not found in one thing or another, but in the spirit that relates them. In the being that connects them. In you. You are the one to bring beauty to life. You are the one to walk your path.
Your motivation comes from oppositions. Youíve seen both sides of the coin. You know the hunger of fire and the bite of the ice. But you do not let their powers consume you. You know the boundaries of earth and sky. But you do not let them bind you, nor pin you in place. You have a moving magic. A living power. You have your life inside you that is all of these things and more. Use it now in every step you take.
