Thaw

Once again, the Wheel of the Year Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2011) shows us the changing faces of the seasons.

In this version of Temperance, a fairy kneels by the side of a small waterfall, pouring water from an ice-encrusted jug into a flower-bedecked one.  Behnind her to the left the earch is covered with snow, while to her right spring flowers pop up from the fresh, green grass.  She herself seems to be a creature of ice - snow-pale skin and gossamer wings - yet she wears flowers in her hair and a short, summer dress.  The place where she kneels, by the river bank, is bare earth - neither snowy nor green.  She is at the liminal point, in-between.

This card reminds me that, in any given situation, it's not just about getting the right mix of ingredients, or balancing the different elements, but also about getting our timing right!  Certainly, that feels pertinent to the fact that I shall be seeing clients today.  Say something at the right time and it helps, say it at the wrong time and you can set the whole process back.  Talk about pressure *eek*

I am grateful for the help of the universe in knowing when to speak and when to keep silent.
