The Moon Card Explained

The Moon follows The Star, and points out that things may not be as they seem. This card shows up when it is time to trust and follow your intuition.

Be on the lookout for unseen problems, deceptions, and haters. You could easily let your imagination and intuition take you to dark and unfriendly places, so keep your anxiety in check.

Proceed with caution and prudence, but let your intuition be your guide. This card is a very strong call to follow your intuition.

Pay attention to what isn’t said or what isn’t seen. Your imagination and creativity can guide you. You should also be writing down – or at least reflecting on – your dreams. They may have a message for you.
