The Illusion Of The Moon In Tarot
The Moon Card is the eighteenth card in Major Arcana Deck but is associated with our subconscious and intuition. It is associated with Pisces. The card depicts the moon in the sky, lighting up the landscape underneath to remind us that there is vital information to be revealed or that is missing from us currently.
Shedding Light On Hidden Truths
The moonlight itself asks us to focus on realms of the unknown, the hidden, unconscious. It is important to note that the moonlight is falling on the dog and wolf. These two animals represent our animalistic nature, one tamed and the other wild. We must look beyond our desires and what we feel, whether anxiety or fear.
Before them, a crawfish crawls out of a pond to walk a path between them. This path is between the conscious and the unconscious. This animal not only represents emotional enlightenment but also trusts in its own ability to walk the dangerous path ahead.
The card reminds us that the possibilities ahead on the journey can be confusing, just like the two towers in the distance, which give no clue to what they contain. Still, patience and following your intuitive path will lead us to a closer understanding of what is suitable for us, even if we cannot see it now. Time, reflection, and intuitive exploration will break the illusions in front of you.
Time To Pay Attention To Inner Guidance
In fact, the card also asks you to pay attention to your history and dreams, as they may provide clues or context that can help you. The Moon can also be a warning for someone deceptive around you, or your dishonest actions, asking you to clear up your act because you will be exposed eventually.
Be aware of what is projected in front of you and how you are projecting onto the situation to seek clarity.
