Strong emotional responses. Psychic abilities. Sixth sense. Things that are hidden or buried. Mental Confusion. Illusion, Deception.
The Moon card represents our deepest emotions. This brings confusion of strong emotions, emotions that overwhelm us. Our deepest intuition and the subconscious itself, for it is down in the subconscious that our deepest buried feelings, memories, emotions live, which secretly control our habits, patterns and choices without us being aware. This is the realm of secrets, memories and hidden emotional scars from the past. It is in the subconscious that we are able to connect and access our intuition, dreams, sixth sense and psychic abilities. The Moon is also connected to cycles and patterns and it is by paying attention to them that we have a chance to unlock the mysteries of the subconscious. The Moon can also indicate that we are taking an emotional approach to things producing an emotional response that might be out of proportion to what we are dealing with. The more we understand the hidden realms of the subconscious the less control this has on us. Also indicates a need to keep things private or secret.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Moon, this could represent that our emotions are controlling us or that we are out of touch with our emotions, feeling disconnected. Being over emotional about something and being detached from our emotions is equally disempowering. This could indicate that we are afraid to lift the lid on old memories, afraid of what we might find.
