Meditation on the Moon (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" And now we turn to the Moon.

I remember in the first Tarot class that I taught, we had a long long discussion about the Moon. The class was all women I think, women mostly younger than me, and many of them didn’t hold the “traditional” Tarot hesitations about the Moon card — confusion, illusion, delusion, worries.

Instead, they were plugging into Moon cycles, rhythms of life, feminine rhythms, magic, imagination, poetry, incantation. Looking to the Moon for guidance. Courageous women.

(And since I have your attention, I want to tell you that my next on-line class will be a Tarot class! and if this interests you, please click on the link below (to my email) for details. I’m in the planning stages now but by late August or early September we’ll be up and running.)

But back to the Moon. Some of the time, yes, when I see this card in readings there is self-deception afoot — either yours or theirs. And then other times, yes, this card is asking you to tune in, to go above your paranoia or your worry, to the deeper insight. Anxiety is never the last word, you know?

The Moon can be crazy thoughts, crazy visions, crazy wisdom — what OTHERS think is crazy, but to you it’s nectar. It’s truth.

The Moon is also that shadowy half-awake half-asleep dreamtime 2 a.m. feeling. Not certain of what’s real. Is that a ghost cat at the door? Or just your tshirt hanging on the doorknob? And maybe you want to find out. And maybe you don’t. The feeling is unsettling.

Now if you don’t vibe with the more spooky Moon interpretations, please know that your instincts matter. That’s one of the things the Moon teaches us! To tune in and listen.

More Moon Words and Phrases:

-having a facade or letting go of a facade
-trust yourself, you’re heading in the right direction
-trust the Divine, angels, your guides
-psychic power, for good or ill
-Guidance
-taking a spiritual voyage
-pay attention to your dreams
-change
-forget about logic-mind
-female relatives (or friends or partners) reaching out to you (those who have passed on)
-time for you to express/experience mothering energy in your waking life too
-entering a new phase but not sure what it is yet
-you can’t attack or solve this problem head on. Sleep on it.

What do you see when you see the Moon?

    The interesting thing, that card has come up more times when I was completely unaware of any deception at all only to find out shortly afterward, plenty of it. :(

Aces, I think, are usually good news. Wands, fairly often, good news. Suit of PASSION and fiery red! And as I am fond of saying: Aces are POTENTIAL and possibility. Not a done deal, nope. An Ace is a maybe of opportunity, not a guarantee. A good start though, yes. In the Palladini deck, a hand re
