Since I wrote the text for this one, it focuses on what I think about The Moon. I actually hadnâ€™t looked at this text in a few years. I am surprised to see how unchanged my thoughts are about the moon, for I really think this sums it up nicely (for me).
â€śThe Moon faeâ€™s illumination is enchanting and beguiling for those who keep their wits about them. It can be deceptive and dangerous for those who are less careful. Surrounded by daisies, she appears as simple and clear as sunlight. While she can seem either troublesome or charming, she is really neither or bothâ€”her effect is based entirely on our perception of her.
â€śHer wolf companion shows how our animal nature is attracted to and stirred up by her presence. In fact, just as wolves are compelled ot react to the moon in the night sky, so too does a part of the human psyche. We act more intuitively, we dream more vividly, we feel more deeply.
â€śShe sits on a stone carved with crayfish, an unlikely symbol for a Moon fae. But remember, things are not as they seem. A crayfish has long represented a creature that has crawled out of the waterâ€”our subconsciousâ€”and it is something that we fear.
â€śIn the magical light of the Moon, wild wolves and monstrous crayfish can appear beautiful, and simple daisies can seem threatening. And that is the dangerâ€”not seeing what really is. The Moon fae gives neither dream nor nightmares. She light the world, and we see whatever we choose to see.â€ť
For now, our parade of Moons is done. Which were your favorites? What are some of your favorites that weren’t shown here, and why?
Next month, I’ve selected another card to explore and I expect some interesting conversations!
