My friend Sophia writes a very lovely Tiny Letter, a blend of her special kind of courage, good humour and insight. It’s one of my favourites.
Last week, she talked about the idea of TEMPERANCE, having drawn the card from her tarot at a time of expansion and movement. I was struck by the way she brought such beauty and compassion to that card, that concept, during such a hard season (we’re all in it, surely - this unfolding of the year and the heightened emotions of a busy and prickly summer).
‘temperance embodies an attitude of finding order in chaos. of allowing. of patience. it signals an ability to hold and merge opposites, find meaning in loss, and dance through pain. there is an alchemy that is born now that we have completed our journey through Temperance. something new is created when we allow things to be as they are, when we let life happen and still rise up as ourselves -- it is a subtle form of magic’.
It’s something I keep coming back to, trying to let life happen and still rise up as myself.
