XVIII - The Moon

Tarot Card Meanings

Keywords: intuition, the subconscious, fears, illusions

The Moon rules deep emotions, fears and illusions. Everything that is hiding in our subconscious, unprocessed feelings and unconscious beliefs that influence us, many of which we are not aware of. This card usually indicates confusion and clouded judgment. Something is being distorted by the moonlight.. you're not seeing it for what it is. Sometimes it's our perception that's causing trouble, not necessarily the situation itself.⁣

When the Moon appears, hold off on making any decisions or conclusions. Clear your head and think things through calmly, talk it out with someone you trust, and wait until the fog has lifted. ☁️☀️
