For a querent in a relationship, the appearance of Temperance may indicate that there’s an imbalance. Are you living as partners or as two individuals next to each other?

Career & Money

If you have been giving your all at work, it may be time to book that well-deserved vacation. To do truly good work, one needs to rest and recuperate between bouts of intense focus. It’s ok to let go of the reins for a while and recalibrate your mind to be its most efficient.

As a person

Known for being able to find balance in every situation, Temperance is the peace-maker. He can negotiate through any situation and make all parties see positive and negative aspects of their demands.

Patient, sometimes to a fault, he’s always trying to see the good in people even though sometimes it’s a huge stretch.


Temperance is an excellent talisman to invoke:

  • the patience of a saint
  • open and honest communication
  • the lifting of roadblocks
  • an amiable persona to strangers
  • a grounded disposition
  • the silver lining of that cloud


The number 14 is often associated with work ethic and charisma. The underlying quality of negotiation underlies the ability to achieve great things when it comes to leadership roles and negotiating business deals.

It’s indicative of the transformational process that happens between the beginning and end of a cycle.
