When pulled upright this card can mean that your imagination is taking the best of you. You are going down a path that you aren’t entirely sure of and it very well could be dangerous. The light of the moon in this card can bring you clarity and understanding. You should let your intuition guide you down this path. Be aware of the situations that are causing you fear and anxiety. Being aware of these things lets you not be deceived by yourself and keeps inner disturbances to a minimum. You need to take these memories and fear and let them go. All negative energy has to be released so it can be turned into something constructive and positive. This card could also mean that there is a hidden illusion in your life. There is a hidden truth that you have yet to discover.
When pulled in reverse this card can mean that there are some dark negative aspects in your life right now. That darkness could be confusion and unhappiness. Maybe you want to make progress but you aren’t quite sure how. The key to figuring this out is by letting go of your fears and anxieties. It is time to believe in yourself and move forward. This card in reverse also means you are in an intuitive period or you have recently just experienced a lot of confusion, anxiety, or self-deception. This card can also suggest that the things that were causing you confusion are slowly starting to go away and things are becoming clearer. You are started to get a hold of your fears and anxieties. All the negativity is slowly fading away.
Here is a great tarot spread that focuses on the moon card. It is great for bringing clarity to a confusing situation. First I would take out the moon card and meditate on it while thinking about a situation in your life that is causing you a lot of confusion. Next shuffle and pull your cards (only pull the first 3 cards in the beginning) using your preferred method.
Card 1: This card is the Moon, the numinous dream image, representing magic, mystery and original beauty, the dark and the light, the beauty of the still night and the deep shadows. This card represents ideals and desires, intentions and clarity.
Card 2: This is the reflection in the water, the clouded sight, the mirror reflecting your biases and prejudices, the skewed perspective, the imperfect translation.
Card 3: This is that which the moonlight illumines, though dimly. These are the snatches of dreams you remember, the bits and pieces of clarity, what you can see from here.
Card 4: Take this card from the bottom of the deck and lay it next to card 3. This card represents that which is still in deep shadow, that which you can’t quite make out, hints and glimpses of things you don’t recognize. This is the darkness and confusion, or what is confusing you.
Both cards 3 and 4 are seen through the unclear glass, the biases shown in the reflection card. By comparing the three you can help determine and further define your perspective.
