Temperance


It is interesting that references to Temperance go far back in time to Plato and Plotinus, as well as to the Hermetic tradition. It early on represented moderation more than admixing of water and fire or the Art of combination. In other words, the archetype is dynamic and not fixated--it might even evolve over time, all the way to Waite's image that includes transformation from soul to spirit-- to the top of the mountain.
