Yes indeed, it represents spiritual alchemy, the transformation/transmutation of the human being. The goal of Temperance is the attainment of the most central of the Sephirah, Tiphareth, the alchemical Gold. I like the Albano version of the card, which depicts the Rainbow, the Bow of Sagittarius, seemingly aimed upward along the Pillar of Balance.
