The Moon (XVIII)


The Moon card calls attention to our shadow; the aspect of our psyche composed of our deepest insecurities and repressed feelings. Although shadows are not solid, they can appear dark and frightening. And if we aren’t mindful, we may unknowingly cast our shadow over others. In doing so, we project our hidden fears and shortcomings on to the outside world unaware of their true source. This card is asking us to look carefully at the areas of our life where we may be susceptible to illusion or deception.
