Tarot Birth Cards - Temperance and The Pope/Hierophant

The Temperance and the Hierophant together, combined as a pair of Tarot birth cards make an excellent pair for guidance and wisdom. Temperance is exactly as it sounds a tempering of a situation or circumstance. However on a deeper level it is symbolic of skillfully mastering difficult situations and helping to restore balance from discord. When the rituals and routines are brought along by the Hierophant, Temperance casts her spell. This is to ensure that any wisdom gained from the Hierophant is tempered. As the advice from the Hierophant tends to be informative and wise, the information gleaned from a combination of these cards can be even better. They act as two good councillors whose advice is both magnified and tempered by each other.
