Very interesting to see how Waite's thoughts on the placement of Temperance and The Lovers seems to have evolved over time because you are right Abrac about the dating of the paper that I quoted from " The Tarot and the Rosy Cross " which according to R.A. Gilbert, Waite's biographer, dates from the latters Independent and Rectified Rite days sometime between 1906 and 1911.

Richard's comment on the symbolism of the RWS Temperance is interesting also although the solar symbolism of Tiphareth can also be seen on the RWS Lovers card in which according to the PKT , " the sun shines in the zenith ' although the water attributed to Yesod is missing on this card.
