Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 26

The Moon 

Morgan Le Fay

Wow!  We haven’t seen this card since early December.  I have no idea what that means!

The Moon is another one of those cards that has different meanings depending on who you studied with, where ya come from, and  − if you’re a good reader and not just a good memorizer − the kinds of things you find your clients have gone through through when The Moon turns up to guide them.

Some readers say The Moon warns of darkness, hidden dangers and instability.  Others stress the “Moony” aspects of fluctuating emotion, high levels of unconscious activity and intense dreams.  I can accept that more easily.

For me, The Moon is first of all a card that betokens change

Perhaps the change should be rhythmical and constantly evolving, like the changing of the moon itself.   

In some cases I’ve intuitively perceived it to be a warning to change course, NOW

At times I’ve found it indicative of the need to accept that change will come, so get to work on determining what would be the best, happiest, most fruitful and healing way to have it – so that change doesn’t just get handed to you half -baked on a paper plate.

In this deck, because of the card’s embodiment as Morgan Le Fay, I find The Moon to have other important qualities and messages.  First, it is a card of feminine empowerment.  So − assuming you are of the feminine gender − own your power not just as a person, but as a woman.  And let yourself contemplate what that distinction means to you. 

Of course, if you’re masculine, this card directs that you more fully own your connection to the divine feminine, or to the artistic, intuitive, perhaps even Dionysian elements in your life.

 And whether you are male or female, The Moon is a card that commands you to own your magic – whatever you understand that to be – and use it fully and well for the highest and best of all.    

Work with your dreams.  Seek the change that is desirable now.  Honor and empower the feminine aspects in you.  Own your magic and use it. Today.

Bright blessings!

    Nice. I do so love hearing your interpretations Neal. Change has been needed in my world anyway for awhile, I suppose it’s time to make the ball get rolling on that.

  2. Donna Allen Says:

    I was out walking after dark last evening and the moon looked so beautiful. I appreciate ALL of your positive messages about the moon card. It would be disheartening to see the beautiful moon in the night sky and “remember” any negative comments or takes I’d heard on it. So, thank you!

    Blessings, Donna

    Hi, Heather,

    Thanks for another kind comment. After you become a multi-millionaire artiste & philanthropist, I’ll have to hire you as my PR coordinator.

    Blessings and profound, beautiful but gentle change!

  4. shamanspath Says:

    Thanks, Donna,

    Yeah, it really does seem terribly important of late to hang on to POSITIVE possibilities out there. Sometimes that’s a pile of work in itself.

    As I just said to Heather,

    Blessings and profound, beautiful but gentle change!
