It was while making my Tarot of the Zirkus Mägi that I first equated the circus art of Juggling with Major Arcana #14, Temperance. Whether or not this was a good leap of logic is in the eye of the beholder, but the moment I saw this chapter 7 heading illustration for The Patchwork Girl of Oz I thought of my juggling Temperance card and wanted to include it in this deck. After all, isn't life, for all of us, one constant juggling act? I think this is a useful card to have in any oracle deck.
