Today’s card is The Moon, number eighteen of the Major Arcana. This card refers to a deep state of sensitivity and imaginative impressionability, developed within the watery womb of deep relaxation. Here we dream and go into trance, have visions and receive insights, wash in and out with the psychic tides, and experience deep mystical realities beyond our ordinary senses. While in a state of expanded consciousness, we cannot always control what happens. We are merely witnesses to those hidden concepts and ideas which are revealed by the eerie light of The Moon. This card represents the ultimate test of a soul’s integrity, where the membrane between the self and the unknown is removed, and our ‘drop of individuality’ re-enters the ocean of being. The Moon shows us the world as it might be but also warns us that these images can be illusory. Remember that what the Moon shows us is a dream to be interpreted, not an accurate portrayal of the situation as it is when scrutinized in the light of day. This card can also indicate that someone is not being truthful with you, that you are being lied to or that, at the very least, you are being deceived through the omission of facts.
Listen to the body and its unique wisdom. Rely upon your inner resources as your best source of support and security. The Moon card advises that you trust your instincts and intuitions. Your aboriginal body, which is connected to all living things, is sharper and quicker than the cultivated, civilized self. The everyday mind may not be prepared for the knowledge that comes to us in these strange dream state experiences and will try to apply logical thinking to the images that come to us under these circumstances. Those butterflies in your belly are trying to tell you something. Listen to them. Using Mindfulness Meditation allows us to just be a witness to these images and dreams without feeling a need to act on them. Give it a try! Once you have sorted things out in the light of day, then you can make wise decisions based on facts, not fiction.
May your dreams reveal a path that helps you walk closer to your truest self today!
