Card number 14 of the tarot is the so-called temperance card represented by a fallen angel. Their gender is not immediately obvious as it refers to the balance of the sexes that should exist.

It has one foot in the water that symbolizes the subconscious, while one remains outside touching land; It is the relationship that exists between the material world. The picture that is on his tunic has a triangle inscribed inside it that speaks about the union of the tangible earth and the Holy Trinity.

The two cups he is holding are positioned so that the two waters can be mixed; the mind and the relationship between the Super Self and the subconscious. Water flows between them, suggesting union and infinity. Everything about this card represents balance, the perfect harmony that comes from the union of dualities. His advice is to test any new water before jumping in.


The angel in the card has huge wings, and is male and female at the same time. The water that pours into the two waters symbolizes the flow and alchemy of life. His light blue robe has a triangle drawn on the chest, enclosed in a square, which means that humans are limited by the law of the natural earthl.

The angel figure balances between one foot on the rocks and the other in the water, representing the need to always be grounded while in constant flux . In the background is a path to a mountain range, reflecting the journey through life. Rising above the mountains is a golden crown shrouded in brilliant light, a symbol of taking the Higher Path and staying true to life's purpose and meaning.
