The Moon

Meaning

When The Moon appears in a reading, your intuition and your emotions will prevail over intellect in your situation. This is a key reason why this card symbolizes the intuitive Water Sign of Pisces. Pisces is a reflector, and uses their psychic gifts to ponder over situations, and pull back to do so on occasion. There is something missing from the picture, or at least from your picture. You do not have all of the facts at hand to make any decisions, either in love or in play at this time. Follow your heart and your intuition, and don't be afraid to ask for psychic messages either. Pull back and meditate or listen to your instinct. What is it telling you? The missing puzzle piece is there! It may not be available to you right now, but the night does not last forever, and in due time this information will reveal itself.

Symbolism

The Moon appearing in a reading is an advisement that you are not clear of all of the details, and there is more at play in the situation than you may think. As the Moon pulls back in the night sky, so too does the querent in this situation. You are being asked to pull back. And this is why this card symbolizes the zodiac sign of Pisces, who is known for retreating to the cave on occasion. This card is a darker card in the Tarot, but it does not necessarily have a dark interpretation. Rather this card represents confusion sometimes, and a lack of clarity on a key issue. Here we see The Moon up in the sky, surrounded by darkness and clouds. There is more at play than meets the eye here, there is information that you do not have available to you that is pertinent to the situation you are asking about. The Moon rules intuition and emotions. These are the factors that you must use to seek clarity. Like the Full Moon in the sky shedding light on the world, it's time to pull back and look at your life and situation from the perspective of The Moon. What puzzle piece are you missing? When you pull back, the Moon reveals that missing piece.
