The Moon Tarot Card
Mystery. Nightmares. Dreams. The fears that grow in the dark. Secrets. The Moon lights the gateway between the physical and metaphysical, the conscious and subconscious realms. Entering the Moon’s world is frightening, but can also be revealing and inspirational. The Moon suggests creativity and intuition. Possibly psychic revelations. Utilize the inspiration. Perhaps write or paint. But also respect the dangers lurking in the dark. Beware of deceptions and phony people. The subject must be very careful to avoid hiding their fears behind alchohol or drugs, as the Moon indicates increased vulnerability to these self destructive behaviors. Traditionally, hidden enemies, deception, illusion, danger, terror, lunacy, plots, dreams.
The upright Moon is not a comfortable card, but the reversal in ways is more frightening. Although it indicates less danger of external hidden enemies and deceptions, it suggests heightened fears or denials. Perhaps overly emotional or delusional behavior. Irrational and intense fear could cause psychological problems. The wildness and chaos of the dark may be getting out of control. This is also a card of travel, in a different sort of way. It is said to sometimes portend Astral Travel, the experience of consciousness traveling outside of the body. When looking at health issues, the Moon represents sleep disorders, mental illnesses, drug overdoses and coma. Traditionally, inconsistency, instability, fantasy, ambush, fraud, usery.
