The Moon

Have you been Moonstruck? The Moon has always been a mystery, a symbol of the unknown, and a harbinger of insanity.


We see two wolves howling at the moon overhead. There’s a man in the moon, a mysterious figure looking down upon them. In the distance, a long jagged path leads up into the mountains. This path is framed by two towers.

The Moon: Meaning

This card is about our darker selves, the unconscious mind, dreams, and shadows. This card is strongly associated with hidden knowledge. What don’t you know?

Someone might be hiding something important from you. Or you might be deluding yourself in some way. Regardless, you need to face your fears and embrace the darkest parts of yourself to move forward.

Pay attention to your intuition, your dreams. Listen to the voice within yourself.

Have you been afraid to move forward? Or take a risk?  This card signifies denial and self-deception. Playing it safe isn’t always the smartest thing to do.

Or you might be refusing to pay attention to your dreams and your intuition. If you have a gut feeling, you should trust it.

Mental health might be an issue. The term lunacy is derived from “luna” which is another term for the moon. You might need to check in with a doctor or a counselor.


You might be deceiving yourself with this relationship. Are you seeing your lover for who he or she truly is?  This person might be lying to you, or you might be obscuring the truth.

Have you been living in a fantasy? Are you longing for someone? Or maybe you’ve placed your lover on a pedestal. Whatever the case, you aren’t seeing the person clearly. Eventually, things will come to light and you should prepare yourself for some potentially ugly truths.
