Weekly Tarot Card – The Moon

The Moon

The Moon Card is all about the reveal. It is nighttime and the full moon is reflected in the light of the sun which sheds it’s rays on the wildlife below. A dog and wolf bark at the moon. A crayfish emerges from the waters.

What is to be revealed? Our civil and wild natures as seen in the dog and wolf respectively seek recognition and understanding. It’s as if they are barking, “See me, hear me, feel me” to the golden silvery light above. The crayfish whose thick shell serves as protection from the elements decides to leave its watery home to walk the perilous path on land. It takes courage to face the unknown but the time is right.

Are we to follow suit and face our fears and illusions? Do we have the courage to look into our shadow self, our defenses, whatever is hidden deep within our subconscious. Let what needs to be revealed rise to the surface. Pay attention to dreams and the keys they hold, the messages from our meditations. Seek integration of light and dark as the moon and sun is reflected in our true nature.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Moon

IMG_0023In the picture the man in the moon is reflected and visible by the light of the sun. In fact both sources of light for the planet earth seem inextricably linked. We have a wolf and dog barking at the moon and a crayfish crawling out of the waters seemingly pulled by the light of the moon. What messages does the moon have for us? What are we being called to look into? The night is dark and the path leads to the mountains in the distance. Perhaps we are to look into our shadow side and address the unconscious with its uncomfortable information. The promise is to illuminate what is holding us back. So we can move forward.
