From the Robin Wood Tarot

Temperance is associated with Sagittarius, the seemingly impossible combination of horse and man and everything about this card is about combining the irreconcilable. After the shattering encounter with Death, the Fool realizes that all Endings are counter-balanced by Beginnings. He feels a sense of balance, of attunement with the innate order of things. Temperance teaches us that balance is not static or easily achievable, but it is possible.
