Tarot > The Moon
It has long been said that the full Moon has a powerful effect on
our emotional state, creating tides of emotions within us.
When we experience such turbulent emotions, it is difficult to
believe that we could ever feel harmony and peace within ourselves
Highly charged feelings cause havoc in our lives, and when The Moon
appears in your readings, you can be sure there are issues in your
life that are causing confusion and mixed emotions.
When this card appears, it is suggesting you take a step back and
view your situation from a different perspective and with a calmer
However, The Moon does represent powerful feelings and it isnít
always easy to gain clarity: we often canít Ďsee the wood for the
treesí. The path to clarity and understanding is a challenging one,
yet despite the emotional wrenches you may feel, it is right for
For example, if you are in a situation where you need to let go of a
lover or partner for whatever reason, but emotionally cannot summon

resistance within us, we allow our weaker nature to rule. However,

The Moon not only represents illusion caused by powerful emotions,
but also illusion or trickery created by other peopleís lies or
misleading behaviour. Therefore, when The Moon appears in a reading,
itís a good idea to question your motives and those of people close
to you, and it is
best to refrain from making firm decisions until you know and feel a
sense of certainty about your choices.
The wan light of The Moon does in some way shed light upon the right
path for us, but because we cannot see clearly in dim light we doubt
ourselves and hold back from taking the steps forward.
The Moon may suggest that your avoidance to take action or make a
tough decision about a certain situation is simply due to fear of
loss. Fear has much to do with The Moon, and
courage is always needed to conquer fear, so take your time when The
Moon appears in your readings and search for your inner courage.
With patience you will find the clarity you seek.
