Temperance as Reconciliation Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

Temperance is the card of moderation, balance, harmony, and patience. An angel stands, with one foot in the water and the other foot firmly planted on land. The angel pours water between two cups, symbolizing the flow and alchemy of life. 

Temperance reminds us that we must avoid going to extremes. We are often best-served by taking a moderate, patient, and balanced view towards life. Temperance reminds us that caution, prudence, and thoughtfulness have their place. They can often bring more reward in the long-term than a passionate outburst based only on a whim. To maintain harmonious relationships, working together to find compromise is often necessary. 

Upright Temperance as Reconciliation

If you are asking about how someone feels about reconciling with you, and you draw Temperance, it means that your ex feels compassionate and empathetic towards your connection, and reconciliation is on their mind. Your ex deeply appreciates you and what you’ve done to strengthen your relationship. 

Temperance as reconciliation is a positive sign for those who are interested in reconciliation. You must let your ex decide on their own at their own pace. They want to take it day by day, and being assertive will not yield your desired outcome. This is the only way to achieve long-term stability in your relationship is to give your ex time to make this big decision for themselves.

When this person thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel that having you in their life is better than being without you. They have realized that when you were together, you brought order and harmony into their life. They have realized that the grass is not greener on the other side, and life isn’t any better without you. However, they will only decide to move forward when they are ready. 

If you’ve recently split up, Temperance means reconciliation is very likely to happen because this person still feels intimately connected to you. They can easily communicate with you without compromising or risking what you already have because they feel harmonious and reunited with you. You simply have to give your partner the time and space he needs. This is an excellent card for starting a long-term relationship.

If you’ve been in separation for a while, Temperance indicates that your ex understood that everything that happened was for the best and this new balance positions us well for a possible reconciliation. Their feelings for you may have been passionately intense in the past, but after spending time away from you, they have restored balance in their life. They’ve reached a new level of maturity to move forward. If your relationship ended because of extreme emotions, you must ensure that both of you are prepared for this next chapter.

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, Temperance means that this person is content and satisfied with your relationship. Reconciliation is indeed very possible with proper and honest communication because they believe you bring harmony and balance to their life. Your patience, moderation, empathy, and compassion are greatly benefiting them and your relationship. If you stick to this “compromise path” until the end, you will reap the benefits of harmony.

Reversed Temperance as Reconciliation

If you are asking about how your ex feels about reconciling with you, and you draw Temperance reversed, it means that they go back and forth on it all the time. Sometimes they want to be back together with you, sometimes they think that they are better off single .Minor factors can cause their emotions to fluctuate wildly. Long-term relationships rely heavily on stability and consistency. Extreme emotions initially add excitement to a relationship. However, if your ex does not learn how to temper their emotions, it can be very destructive, as you need to know for certain whether or not they intend to stay.

Temperance reversed as reconciliation is a conflicting sign. To be in a genuinely loving relationship, your ex must let go of the notion that loss equals love. They need to examine themselves and their emotions. They will only realize that they deserve stability after they have healed all of our past wounds and learned to love ourselves more than anyone else can.

When your ex thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel conflicted most of the time. Their choices and decisions are greatly influenced by their current mood. Even if they claim to want to move forward right now, this person must control their emotions in order to forge a stable relationship in the long run. They must learn to commit and stick to their decisions regardless of how they feel at the moment.

If you’ve recently split up, Temperance reversed indicates that reconciliation seems unlikely due to uncertainty about the potential direction of your relationship.  This person may show a fiery passion for you at times, but they can also be as cold as ice. This person either prefers extremes or thinks you do. While volatility can arouse excitement in a relationship, too much of it can ultimately harm a steady relationship in the long run. 

If you’ve been in separation for a while, Temperance reversed means this person feels unsure. This could imply that they are willing to reconcile with you. They sometimes miss you terribly. Other times, they have accepted that it was over. Their feelings for you swing from time to time. However, if ever they reach out, you should ensure that they are not simply acting on their feelings at the time, because their feelings can shift quickly.

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, Temperance reversed signifies that this person is experiencing different waves of extreme emotions. You must both communicate your needs honestly in order to stabilize your relationship. Although emotional ups and downs are normal in any relationship, extreme volatility is harmful in the long run.
