When our emotional health is in a bad state, so is our level of self-esteem. We have to slow down and deal with what is troubling us, so that we can enjoy the simple joy of being happy and at peace with ourselves. ~ Jess C. Scott

Healing is rarely a linear process. We go through a spiral pattern on our healing journey that takes us ever deeper within ourselves. The reason for this is that we would not be able to process it all in one go. This is especially true of wounds received in our childhood.
Temperance in the Tarot Major Arcana is the perfect healing archetype. In astrology the correspondences for this Tarot card is Sagittarius which is associated with Chiron, the wounded healer – the most revered of all the centaurs.
The Angel of Temperance in the image is mixing humours to achieve perfect balance – a delicate process which takes time and dedication, as well as keen observational skills. One foot in the water signifies that we need to be in touch with our emotions for this process to be effective.
The Moon features heavily in the Cycles card from the Oracle of the Unicorns. The Moon rules our emotions and we need to realise that, just as the Moon has her cycles, so do our emotions. We may wish to stay even-tempered and emotionally detached when life gets chaotic… Wouldn’t things be so much easier that way? Alas, it is not always possible… but that’s OK. All emotions are valid signposts for where we are in the process and we should accept them all because what we resist persists.
Today is a good day to deeply accept and honour our emotions, whatever they bring up for us. Only in doing so can we go in one layer deeper in the healing process. I pray we will all achieve this today, with gentleness, patience and compassion.Emotions can get in the way or get you on the way. ~ Mavis Mazhura Click To Tweet
