03/14/12: Madness or Magic? | The Moon

“The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.” Carl Sandburg

Today’s Tarot is the Moon, associated with Pisces. (And if you read the Book of Seshet, companion to the Rosetta Tarot, you’ll understand exactly why.) Here, she’s depicted as Scylla, a sea serpent from Greek mythology. The heads of wolf and dog as part of her body give a nod to Tarot Moon card tradition, suggestive of wild, untamed nature. This is an unpredictable card by nature.

Between her and her counterpart, Charybdis (a giant whirlpool, here shown with stairs leading to the depths of the unconscious), it’s clear that navigating will be fraught with potential peril. Let’s just say nothing is clear cut. Exactly what you’d expect, with Pisces energy.

The Moon speaks to the unknown—below consciousness, dreams and delusions, a great, watery mass of shadows and mystery. Pisces can grant spiritual epiphanies or a descent into madness, and you’d be hard pressed to identify which is which in the process.

SO…when you see the Moon, understand you’re no longer standing on solid ground. What you perceive is outline, suggestion, with no more than intuition to connect the dots. Or is it imagination? That’s what you’ve got to figure out. Be aware of the potential for deception, particularly the self-made sort. You may find incredible insight and a spiritual experience—or you may just have a helping of crazy on your plate.

Either way, stay attuned and look for daybreak before you make any big leaps. And don’t hesitate to pray! That’s a good way to access guidance and faith from the Moon’s realm of dreams and illusion. It’s a trip you take alone. Since you can’t trust your eyes in the silver shimmer, ask for divine assistance as needed.

Are you feeling the moon?

  1. I certainly am feeling The Moon! LOL!! Too much Neptune, not enough Saturn!

    What a magnificent descent down that staircase it can be. And the way in is not necessarily the way out, especially when we’re confused.

Shine Thy Light!
