XVIII – The Moon

The Moon will lead us into the blackest depths of our soul, into the world of the subconscious, where there are no more words, just images and notions.  It represents a journey into the darkest night, a look behind our own face and images.

The Moon isn’t the most comfortable trump.  Everybody likes to equate the Moon with the mysteries, rarely someone really enjoys the look into their own abyss, where sometimes the unvarnished truth is not pleasant. The Moon tends to show up what we generally ignore, refuse to see, or even deny all the time.  But the step has to be taken, for without facing up to darkness, we will never see love light.

The Moon represents your fears and illusions and often comes out when you are projecting fear into your present and your future, based on your past experiences. You may have a painful memory that caused emotional distress, and rather than dealing with the emotions you pushed them down deep into your subconscious.  These emotions are making a reappearance, and you may find yourself under their influence on a conscious or subconscious level.  To remedy this, connect with your subconscious mind and release any fears or anxieties holding you back. Hypnosis, therapy and shamanic healing can support this process.

The Moon has no real negative aspect, but it implies a serious danger.  The journey into night could be too much when we’re not prepared and we might get lost in our own shadow.  You may need to do some work to get to the bottom of things; be sure to not only ensure the intentions of others, but also understand your own emotions, desires and motivations.
