The Moon Card
The Moon Card
The Significance Contained in the Image
In the Moon card a crayfish emerges from a pool of water. It has to follow the path which goes between two towers, over the hills and passes by a dog and a wolf. The dog and the wolf bay at the Moon and instill fear in the crayfish. How can it overcome its fears and complete its journey? What is causing the fear in the first place?
The Moon is a card signifying the power of imagination, dreams and the thoughts we feed our brain.
If the crayfish focuses on the dangers that lie ahead it will not move. If it shifts it focus it may avoid the danger. Equally important question is - what is causing the fear? Chances are, it comes from the subconscious which the night (the Moon) brings out. As the Sun disappears and hides from view almost everything, our inner visions comes out. They become the only things we see. What kind of feelings, fears, dreams, hopes do they inspire?
In a general reading, the Moon represents dreams, imagination and our inner demons. When this card comes up the psyche has been excited by external events and has a message for us. We need to listen. We need to establish peace within our inner world if we are to fully appreciate the outer world. If we repress our Lunar side, this will negatively impact our Solar side. When this card comes up it suggests that answers will come to you through dreams and visions.
It suggests that you are faced with a task or on a journey to a goal both of which require you to overcome your fears. Some inner work needs to be done before you can tackle the challenge.
Alternatively, The Moon can represent illusions and deceit. Something it hidden from view. Some piece of information is being withheld. Someone might be actively lying to you to deceive you or they may be withholding information to protect you/themselves. Either way, you are being told only part of the story. Look closer to find hints of what has been covered.
When reversed, the Moon card indicates problems from the past making their way back into your life. Problems that you thought had been taken care of rear their heads again demanding that they be truly fully resolved this time.
Alternatively, inner tensions might be coming to the surface. The querent may be unable to resolve the issues withing hence creating problems for themselves in the external world as way of visualising the enemy.
In reverse, the energy of the Moon is repressed. The call of the subconscious has not been answered and emotions beginning to pressurize.
In a relationship reading, the Moon indicates secrets. Your partnership may look harmonious on the surface but underneath lurks another story. Issues may be swept under the carpet or simply not recognized. A problem may not yet have been brough into full consciousness. Some of these issues may be related to fear and fear of commitment in particular.
In reverse, this card has a positive meaning. Secrets may be revealed and clarity achieved. It indicates that answers are forthcoming.
In a career reading, the Moon signifies uncertainty around a career path. There is not enough information about career growth or development. On a different note, you may receive an offer which sounds tempting but its long-term prosepects are unclear. Something about it may seem too good to be true.
In reverse, the Moon indicates the dissolution of confusion. The overall picture is more clear now.
In a financial reading, the Moon card indicates lack of clarity about an investment or a payment. Some trickery might be at play. Something may be misrepresented or misinterpreted.
In reverse, the card has a more positive meaning. Factual information is begining to flow and provide better visibility around the issue.
