TAROT CARD THE MOON
The moon mystical tarot card that represents the animal nature of each individual, which is why a wolf and a dog appear contemplating the moon . The path leads into the distance.

The towers on opposite ends represent the forces of good and the forces of evil, and the similarity between their appearances may allude to the difficulties you might face when dealing with to distinguish them.

What does the Moon card mean in the Tarot?
The meaning of the card varies according to the position it adopts in the tarot spread, its interpretation will also change if it is related to any other card.
THE MOON TO THE RIGHT
When the moon rises in your spread it is speaking to you about your illusions and your fears and it usually appears when you feel fear in your present and you project it into your future, fear that is based on your bad experiences. You may be flooded with a painful memory that once caused you emotional distress and instead of dealing with that emotion, you push it deep inside.
These emotions are showing up again and you may find yourself under their influence on a conscious or subconscious level. For example, if you were in a car accident when you were young but didn't have to deal with emotions, you may feel sad or anxious every time you sit in the back seat of a car.
In order to get out of this negative stage, you must connect with your mind and your subconscious and release all that fear and anxiety that is stopping you. Hypnosis, shamanic healing and therapy can support this process.
The moon can show you that you are living a moment of uncertainty and illusion, when nothing is what it seems. Do not make hasty decisions when the time comes, they could harm you in the long run and you will realize that you only had half the information.
You need to listen and trust your intuition in order to see beyond what is in front of you. Feeling in situations instead of thinking about what they mean. Let go of conscious mental blocks or negative self-talk and let your intuition guide you. Your dreams, intuitions, and inner guidance lead you to higher levels of understanding if you listen and use your judgment to help interpret the messages from your subconscious.
Pay close attention to the lunar cycles and tune into their divine power through a simple ritual, visualization, or tarot cards. It's time to connect with your divine feminine power and discover new insights that go far beyond everyday life.
THE MOON INVERTED
If the moon appears inverted, it is telling you that the end of those negative influences that surrounded you has come, due to the fears and anxiety with which you have been dealing. You have been working on your fears and anxieties, and thus you are understanding the impact they have on your life and have discovered how to free yourself from it. A period of liberation and true transformation has arrived.
You can try to bury these feelings even deeper into your subconscious to avoid their dark shadows. You may not be ready to face your emotions, pushing them aside and pretending there is nothing wrong. This strategy might work in the short term, but eventually, these emotions will have to resurface and deal with them head on.
You are likely receiving intuitive messages, finding yourself struggling with confusion, anxiety and self-delusion , and you're having a hard time understanding what all of that means to you. The message may be confusing, or your interpretation differs from what you read elsewhere. You may be misinterpreting how you've been feeling, but you're starting to get better at this. When this tarot card is reversed, you are called upon to listen to your inner voice, and not someone else's voice.
You could find yourself in a call of the forces of the night that are only bringing you confusion but are dissipating. You are beginning to manage your fears and anxieties. Any negative energy you have been dealing with is slowly fading away. It presents a liberating experience as you discover the positive side of things.
