All You Need To Know About The Moon Tarot Card

Uh, what’s going on here??! The Moon, a powerful tarot card in the Major Arcana, appears when all is a bit confusing and not everything is quite as it seems. You know when something seems a little weird to you, but you don’t really know why? It is the energy of the Moon. It’s intense, it’s wild, it’s emotional and it brings to light our deepest fears and anxieties. When everything in the earthly world feels like an illusion, our dreams kick into high gear to help us understand our feelings and seek out the solutions we need to make sense of it all.

The standing moon

When everything seems unclear and we don’t know what move to make next: that’s when you draw the Moon. This card is an acknowledgment of this mental confusion. Use this moment to pause and reflect by asking yourself, “Okay, what am I so afraid of? Usually our fears stem from a lack of information, so dig a little deeper and find out what you need to know. Ask questions, baby! Remember, fear of the unknown is always much worse in our imaginations than in our realities. There is no rush to make decisions, as we are still investigating here.

Nobody likes to feel confused. We want answers!!! Unfortunately, it will take time, and logic probably won’t help you out of this mess. This is a situation you have to work your way through, so unleash your intuition! What is your subconscious trying to tell you? Pay attention to your dreams and notice any recurring patterns or themes. Do you keep a dream journal? If not, now is a good time to start! The secrets you want to unlock can reside there.

The reversed moon

When drawing The Moon upside down, be aware that just like the Moon itself, this current moment of confusion is only a phase. The clarity you were looking for has arrived! Uncertainty dissipates, and the truth will be revealed (well, amirite?!). Everything aligns to make progress, but what is the missing piece of the puzzle? Sometimes the biggest stumbling blocks and biggest obstacles are the illusions we create in our own minds. By facing your fears and facing your anxieties, you can move forward and make the important decisions you’ve been putting off.

Do you still feel uncertain? ? This is your invitation to get a little more magical. Let yourself be guided by the light of the Moon cycle! On the next New Moon, set intentions and release what no longer serves you with the next Full Moon. Life simply takes on more meaning when we infuse practical magic and ritual into our daily lives. And always respect your intuition. When we go against our instincts or talk to each other about our gut feelings, that’s when we find ourselves in troubled waters and unsettling situations. You know exactly what you need to do, so trust your inner wisdom and act on it.
