Temperance in the past, The Emperor today, Seven of Pentacles in the future
Temperance in the past, The Emperor today, Eight of Pentacles in the future

When you see a Major Arcana card, you’re supposed to stop and take notice. Today we have two.

In the past position, we have Temperance. As I described in my last post, to me, temperance has a very different meaning: confusion, the unknown.

In the present there is The ever-logical and disciplined Emperor – you’ve taken your confusion and made sense of it.

The future position – the Eight of Pentacles, builds on that idea – traditionally it’s about discipline and hard work. Here, you’ve taken your former confusion and fashioned it into a tool to help you build bigger and better things.
