Tarot card 14: Temperance - an interpretation

We do not have the power to destroy the evil within us. The only way to make it disappear is to offer it up as food to good spirits. Tarot card number 14 shows an angel decanting a liquid from an urn made of silver (a metal associated with the moon) into an urn made of gold (a metal associated with the sun). The initiates who devised the Tarot cards invested this symbol with the idea of a transfusion of the lower self, symbolized by the moon, into the higher self, symbolized by the sun. For that transfusion to be possible, the lower self must be absorbed, in a way, by the higher self. This, then, is the task of intelligent disciples: to master the chaotic energies of their lower nature in order to place them in the service of their higher self. This is the only way to conquer evil.
