A Bartending Angel

#14 Temperance from the Smith Waite Tarot

In the Rider Waite Smith Tarot, the Temperance Angel pours water between two cups at what seems an impossible angle.

It represents the Angel’s mastery of the natural world, and in combination with the symbol for fire he wears on his chest, points to a successful balancing of the opposites both inside and out.

In his performance on Ukraine’s Got Talent, bartender Alexander Shtfanov also pours liquids between two cups at what seems an impossible angle.

And though he doesn’t wear the symbol of fire, there are fireworks displayed in the backdrop behind him.

It’s unlikely that Shtifanov is in fact the Temperance Angel, but they do share some similarities. Both know a lot about balance, and how to get that perfect mix.
