The moon card is often perceived to be one of mystery and sometimes darkness. It can have this element, but it is fundamentally the card of genius, creativity powerful magic, femininity, intuition and mythical knowledge.
The moon is feminine and deep and mysterious and this card can force times of uncertainty, things being not clear, hidden secrets, lies, deceptions, but also a sense of wonder and definitely a period of growth and change.
Emotionally it may be a period of intensity, rich growth and sometimes crisis.
Relationships may go through a period of chaos or deep reflection, change or gross analysis. The moon will shine bright on any problems, so as to give the opportunity to fix them.
As the moon is feminine this card asks us to look for meaning in things, allow our emotions to come into play, step out of our heads and move into our hearts more.
The moon will challenge us to find a greater way than what already is!.If a relationship is not serving us anymore, it will make this as clear as day. On the other hand if a relationship is wonderful and rich in intimacy it will also shine it’s feminine beauty upon this fact.
It is a highly emotional time, but the feminine strength has power in balance.
If you have just met someone or are single it can mean that major change is upon you. It advises you to use your intuition and insight. Tap into the heart and allow the inner knowing to guide you in the situation. You will know if the person is right by your gut feeling – Listen to it 🙂
The moon is also in the house of cancer, so it could very well be shining a light on home issues. Shifts will need to be made around the home or some hidden facts will be illuminated. The moon is soft and reflects water so it is not always harsh. It can however be intense. Intensity helps us grow and the message the moon wants to light up will certainly always have the potential for growth.
The moon reflects dreamlike states, so this card can be asking us to pay attention to your dreams, your intuition and your hearts. It conjures a more psychic state, which regards more attention to instincts, gut feeling and synchronicities.
This card can often be advising someone of their own psychic abilities and asking them to open up and learn more and allow this gift to be nurtured.
So the moon’s mooning and it’s asking you to be caring, loving and listen, try not to be selfish, try to ‘see’ the others feelings and point of view. Make necessary changes or stay away till your emotions become less self absorbed and more realistic.
However, be sure you are not handing over your positive personal power (notice the word positive – power does not come through aggression or self regard). Things will end in full moons, but the choice of how you deal with things is always YOURS.
There is dark and light in the world – the moon shines the light… it is up to us if we go towards it or not – as we awaken to the light we have a choice to stay in the darkness knowingly – illuminated or to make the changes. The moon card want us to use the natures grace and mysteries to take us there.
When the moon card shows in a tarot reading you can be sure of change and deeper mystery and growth. Tap into your greater self and you will be able to flow with the tide gracefully 🙂
