The Fairy Tale Moon

This post was written by Barbara Moore

Lisa Hunt’s Fairy Tale Tarot features the lovely Sleeping Beauty. I love how the moonlight coming in the window is mirrored in the moonlight in the tapestry. This card highlights the idea of the moon representing the unconscious, comparing it to a dream state (since the princess is in a 100 year sleep, I assume she is dreaming during at least some of that time). The room looks comfortable and safe. All the dangers and fears, if there are any, are within her mind and inhabiting her dreams.

This is wonderful! I can already tell I’m going to want this deck. The fact that we can’t see what she is dreaming underscores the sense of the “unseen” that I associate with The Moon.

I recently read the original version of the Sleeping Beauty story and it adds a whole other layer of menace to the interpretation of the card. Sometimes being an unstoppable truffle-pig for learning has its downsides! :)
