The moon tarot card
For Tarot students, the Moon card is one of the most divergent, with different meanings. In addition to a large crescent moon at the top, a dog and a wolf are face to face. They represent our friendly face on the one hand and our instincts on the other. From the reflecting pool emerges a lobster, inviting us to be resilient and ready to adapt. Just like when we take a photo of the moon that never looks like what we see, this letter is an invitation to look at our idealizations and mental confusions so that we don’t live in a world of illusion.
When the New Moon passes through the sign of Scorpio, it invites us to live a cycle where we will be faced face to face with the invisible, with what we do not see, with family secrets and with what we have pushed. under the carpet. The Scorpio has the energy of Clarissa Pinkolas and invites us to save our sealskin, put on the red shoes and face the blue beard. It is an energy that comes to show us that life is not perfect, but that it is only when we allow ourselves to relax that we reach orgasm, dying for a few seconds.
Scorpio is endurance and learning. It is knowing that all we need is within us. It is to dive into the soul and come back stronger, more intense, deeper, more Scorpio. The penultimate lunar cycle of 2021 is not going to be easy. After all, you have to transform to connect.
