The Moon Tarot Card Meanings
The Moon: This card shows the moon looking down on some dogs baying and a scorpion emerging from the water. It shows our dual nature and that not everything is as it seems.
This card represents the unconsciousness. It shows that we are becoming more aware of our hidden depths.
This card warns of deception, trickery, dishonesty and double-talk.
The Moon advises you to be wary not to always trust your feelings. In times of anxiety, emotions and thoughts can become confused. You need to be continually aware of how little we as human beings really understand about what is going on in our lives. Try being humble about what you think you know and question all your preconceptions. Sometimes the greatest wisdom we can have is to know that we don't know. Remember also that clarity and confusion, like the Moon, have phases and do pass. The Moon asks us to be calm and patient and to not be too affected by these phases.
