Tarot Card ~ May 17

The Moon

Morgan Le Fay

Fortune Cookie: 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.

We last saw this card five or six weeks ago.

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 when The Moon has turned up to guide them.

Some readers say The Moon warns of darkness, hidden dangers and instability. [Yummy.] Some warn to be careful of distractions ~ from finally working on those New Year’s resolutions, I suppose. Others stress the “Moony” aspects of fluctuating emotion, high levels of unconscious activity and intense dreams. I find 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 that a client should 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 a substantial change doesn’t just get handed to you half-baked on a sodden 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 might most fully mean to and for 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, masculine or feminine, 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 and… YOUR magic!

Today’s Weather: A mercurial but still impressive confirmation of that which is truly whacked. More juice, please.

On This Date: 1902Greek archaeologist Valerios Stais discovers the Antikythera mechanism, an ancient mechanical analog computer. Its time of construction is now estimated between 150 and 100BC. The degree of mechanical sophistication is comparable to a 19th century Swiss clock.
