Fingertips very sore today, typing will be minimal! Yes, there are the final four Major cards – all neatly scanned together weeks ago.
However, since it is painful to type – you get to muse on your own about the final three until next week. I will discuss only #18 The Moon!
The moon is full today, so it seems appropriate to focus so singularly rather than skipping the Tuesday Tarot entirely as I first thought about doing. Laura Perry takes this card in a direction I do not agree with at all. Her entire definition is what I have long regarded as the proper interpretation of a reversed presentation. Her operative phrase is “I deceive” and the Linear B tract says “Neither”. She insists the card means illusion and specifically self-deceit, seeing reflections and thinking it is reality. As I said, for me, this IS the correct read for a reversed Moon.
To me, the Moon card always speaks of the tides of life and intuitive pullings. It suggests being at a low point and seeking a way to rise. It may suggest occult forces, secret enemies, the need for psychic protection and attention to dreams for a useful psychological clue. It can suggest a flood tide of change — usually voluntary, but tumultuous all the same.
It is a potent card for me presently; lots of change in my life tides of late have me feeling rather wave wracked. I am dreaming in significant “Get a clue and a BREAK” ways. I intend to take the advice of dreams and this card and work some “me” time into my crazy life ASAP!
