Moon (Cross Spread)


The Moon is a psychological card of projecting fear into your present and your future, based on past experiences. The images, feelings and thoughts that you have repressed over time cause internal distress that are becoming overwhelming. As a result, you are now experiencing negative blocks within your personality which cause anxiety and fear. You need to cleanse and release deep memories in order to solve this. This is a time when you need to go deep into your soul and unearth your fears, anxieties, psychic blocks and personality turmoil. Secret information, motives and hidden truths will surface now, they might confuse you, but once you have brought them to consciousness, they will no longer torment you.
The Moon is a card of illusion and deception, and thus often suggests a time when something is not as it seems to be. Acuity and clear observation will be necessary to find that which is hidden before it is too late. You may be idealizing the situation, and ignoring the fact that within success there is potential for failure. If the other cards are generally positive, then the Moon suggests that you are magnifying things and they are not nearly as bad as they seem. In both cases you must open your eyes and see what it really going on. Be wary of accepting illusions as they may cause an error in your judgment.
The Moon can appear when you are not sure of your destination or the path you are travelling through. You may have gone off-trail and are now walking in the dark, guided only by intuition. The Moon is a card of psychic forces and intuition, so get rid of your mental blocks and let your intuition be the guide. Your intuitions, dreams and inner hints lead you forth towards higher levels of understanding only if you listen thoroughly and make use of your judgment to interpret the twilight messages of the unconscious.
