The moon card of tarot is a card of mystery. Its energy can manifest in our lives in a number of ways. It invites us to examine what is really going on. What is happening below the surface? What is not seen? What is being withheld from us? It is a good idea to investigate all the details before making a final decision or signing any contracts. A classic example of this involves buying a car. Would you not take the car for a test drive before buying it? Shouldn’t you have a trusted mechanic look it over to make sure it all checks out before forking over your money for it? Don’t rush into anything without knowing all the details first…. continue
The moon card of tarot is a very mysterious card. It tells us that in life, sometimes we don’t know everything. Sometimes certain facts are either withheld from us, or they simply are not yet known. As such, this card may just as well be advising us to keep quiet ourselves. Maybe, it is best to keep our own secrets.
Is it always appropriate to tell other people everything? This doesn’t mean to tell lies, but rather to ask yourself if the certain situation at hand needs to be brought up. Does it? Maybe it is best to keep it to yourself. Maybe it will only upset others to hear it. Maybe talking about it, whatever “it” is may only stir the pot. Does the pot need stirring? Perhaps keeping the peace is better, and keeping quiet is the best way to keep the peace… continue
Sometimes it is best to hold on to information before we tell people about it. Let’s say you have some big news. Yes, the temptation may be to tell everybody right away, but is this always the best thing to do? Try keeping it to yourself just a little while. By telling too many people your news, or perhaps telling the wrong people, the energy of your news becomes diluted. It gets reduced to gossip. Where the excitement of announcing to others what your plans are, it has already been spread by those who simply can’t keep their mouths shut. Now, instead of telling others in your own way, you are being interrogated. “I heard that you… blah blah blah.” Now you must have your energy drained by answering to it instead of boosting your energy by telling it. This is your news. Keep it exciting by keeping to yourself until you are ready to tell it, then tell it in your own way. Don’t let others ruin the excitement of it for you.
Do you sometimes go to sleep at night with a worry on your mind, or a feeling of stress and you find it nearly impossible to fall asleep, and when you do fall asleep, you don’t sleep so good, and you end up waking up in the middle of the night with this worry on your mind? This is one way that the moon card manifests in your life. Chances are, while you lie awake with this stress on your mind, you can conceive a multitude of doom and gloom scenarios, swearing that you will take a most drastic measure in reaction to it. And then you finally drift off to sleep, even if only for a couple of hours. When you wake up after these couple of hours of sleep, the worry and stress do not seem so relevant any more. Things are certainly different in the light of the moon. When our mind is fixated on the doom and the gloom, we see only the darkness. Be careful of the decisions you make under the influence of the moon, for once the moon passes and the sun shines again, you will see illumination in those moon shadows. Always be mindful of the moon shadows. That fear, that worry, that stress you feel that keeps you from sleeping, these are demons of the moon shadows. They may only be conjurances of your imagination, but they are very real. To react to them without first shining light onto them to illuminate them can be costly, for when you react to problem that is not real, you may only be creating problems that were not there to begin with, and now you have a real problem to deal with.
