"Traditionally, the Moon Tarot card is the card of subjection. It is at this point that one must face his journey by the dimly lit light of his or her own intuition. This is the inner light that is within us all. Trusting in one’s own feelings will ultimately serve as the best guide. The Moon Tarot card encourages us to face our truths: what in our lives is an illusion and what is the truth. In Tarot reading, the Moon is the cards of self-exploration often encouraging us to explore the areas where we have failed to be honest with ourselves.The Moon & Pisces is a powerful combination that drives us to listen to the inner voice & focus on spiritual aspects of our existence. True Pisces appear to live in a slightly detached reality & function on a higher frequency, The Moon, though, reveals that there is a constant internal struggle that Pisces needs to overcome on a daily basis. The Moon of course controls the tides & has a huge effect on us as our bodies have such a high composition of water. As the Moon therefore affects our intuition & subconscious patterns, Pisces likewise compels us to face our inner thoughts & fears, to triumph over negativity or fear, reach for our dreams & release our true potential.

"The Moon often represents your ‘shadow’ self. The shadow is a psychological term introduced by the late Swiss psychiatrist Dr. Carl G. Jung, and is a part of the unconscious mind consisting of repressed weaknesses, shortcomings and instincts. “Everyone carries a shadow,” Jung wrote, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is”
According to Jung, the shadow, in being instinctive and irrational, is prone to projection, turning a personal inferiority into a perceived moral deficiency in someone else.
Thus the Moon calls your attention to your shadow, becoming consciously aware of any tendencies to project fear and anxiety onto your external surroundings, and turning it around into more positive and constructive energy.
The Moon is a psychological card of projecting fear into your present and your future, based on past experiences. The images, thoughts and feelings that you have repressed over time cause inner disturbances that are becoming overwhelming. As a result, you are now experiencing negative blocks within your personality, causing fear and anxiety. To remedy this, you need to go through a purging process whereby deep memories are released. This is a time when you need to go deep into your soul and dredge up your anxieties, fears, psychic blocks and personality disturbances. These newly discovered resources may confuse you but once they are brought to your awareness, they will no longer haunt you.
Oftentimes, the Moon appears in a reading when you are not sure of your destination, or even of the path you are travelling but you travel nonetheless. You may have lost your way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by your inner light and intuition. You need to go on without a clear picture of where you are, where you are going or where you have been. The Moon is a card of intuition and psychic forces, so let go of your conscious mental blocks or negative self-talk, and allow your intuition to guide you. Your dreams, intuitions, and inner promptings lead you forward toward higher levels of understanding if you listen carefully and use your judgement to help interpret the veiled messages of the unconscious.
Not only will the way forward be revealed but in many cases you will learn lessons about yourself that will be valuable, in later journeys."[x]
