Our Temperance, or Convictions card is all over the place with symbology. She wears the belt of Thot, (Egyptian lunar god) yet has a small sun on her forehead. One foot on a wooden (wisdom) triangle (man woman child) the other on a sphere (reality).
I'm reminded by this card it takes a lot of life to work out our convictions and they can sometimes be a shifting target as we add more wisdom to our journey. I guess the key to the balance in the urns is to actually take a stand based on what we know and avoid being wishy-washy...
