Love Tarot and the Reversed Temperance Card

Understanding the Reversed Temperance Card in a Love Tarot Reading

In a love tarot reading, the reversed Temperance card often references a lack of balance, moderation, or patience. If you are trying to rush your love life into action, you may suddenly find yourself feeling a bit out of control or off-centered. A reversed Temperance tarot card urges you to slow down. If you fail to do so, there certainly could be negative consequences.

There are some cases in which a reversed temperance can refer to over-indulgence, addiction issues or even infidelity. If you are involved with someone that is exhibiting any signs of the above mentioned issues, you need to take the opportunity to truly find your inner sanctuary and space. In a love tarot reading, a reversed Temperance card can indicate that another person’s behavior can throw you off balance. You need to be conscious that you are not taking responsibly for another person’s decisions and behaviors. In fact, this would be the time to really put the focus back on yourself. You may be neglecting your own needs.

Another important element to a reversed Temperance card in a love tarot reading concerns the matter of setting your standards and expectation of a romantic relationship or partner a bit too high. Now, this doesn’t mean you take whatever you get. On the contrary, you need to be aware if you are asking too much of person. Are your expectations to high? Are you being overly critical or judgmental?  In love tarot readings, a Reversed Judgment card can refer to the need to simply let things be as they are. If you are currently in a relationship, you may have to work on being more unconditional with your partner as well as yourself. When you hold on too tightly, there is little room for growth or transformation.All relationships require some degree of compromise.

Make sure you are giving your love life the room it needs to prosper. It may mean accepting the fact that your love life may be moving a little slower than you would like. This certainly is not forever. Use this as an opportunity to explore the other areas in your life that bring you happiness and peace.
