The moon in the Tarot is a card deeply associated with the innermost recesses of the mind, the subconscious sea where inspiration and insanity reign together. The Moon Tarot card is beautifully decorated with a full moon, and the two howling wolves that sing to it. The water is represented by the cold river that flows into the ocean. What mysteries does it hold?
Basic Meaning Of The Moon Card
The Moon is all about vision, genius, poetry and inspiration, but also madness and the illusions that send travellers off the true path and sailors crashing into rocks. If the Moon appears as a warning the querent should be careful of all things related to his or her mental health, and avoid drugs and alcohol and other addictive substances, specially if it’s combined with the Devil card.
The Moon warns of confusing times ahead, emotional and mental trials either for them or maybe for their loved ones. They may not be themselves, and they may take whirlwind decisions that doesn’t seem to make sense after the fact. Things are not what they seem by the light of the Moon, in all aspects of life. The Moon and the Lovers card can point to dramatic relationships and a whirlwind of emotion not based on logic and sometimes not real.
But the Moon is not always a negative card, just a dreamlike and emotional one. The Moon can also signal for enhancing creativity, genius discoveries or works of art, the discovery of psychic powers and visions in the form of prophetic dreams. If the Moon influences are strong on a reading the querent should consider taking up painting, writing or other creative endeavours, and ensure that their emotional upheaval doesn’t take them unprepared. The Moon can be seen illuminating the dark recesses of the mind, for good or bad.
Things To Look For
The Moon on a reading is good moment to ask yourself about what your inner self may be trying to tell you. Pay attention to your intuition: if you have a hunch is probably for a good reason and you shouldn’t ignore it. But keep in mind that you may be feeling more unstable and moody than usual, so don’t be afraid to ask yourself if a decision is being made with your mind or with your heart. Keep in mind your purpose and seek clarity if you want to navigate by moonlight.
