This Servant shows us the light in the darkness.
But The Moon is about Hope. In the darkness of the black night The Moon can show us the light (even if it isn’t its own light and merely a reflection). The Moon is the light at the end of the tunnel. But a word of caution: hope can set The Querent up for a big fall, after all Hope is a dangerous thing. That said, Hope is sometimes the only thing that can get you through the night, and also, sometimes we get more than we hoped for.
The Moon often represents the Querent’s ‘shadow’ self – the bits of them that they don’t want to acknowledge. The Querent should try to become aware of any tendencies to project fear and anxiety onto the events or people that surround them, and try turning it into positive and constructive energy. Life reflects back to the Querent their thoughts and beliefs in the same way the Moon reflects the sun’s light.
The Moon is an interesting card and can represent a number of things depending on the question asked or the surrounding cards. The Moon has no light of its own and only reflects the light of the Sun, which can suggest illusion or falseness in some aspect of The Querent’s life – Is someone pretending to be something they are not, or is the Querent pretending to be someone or something they aren’t? This is made more likely if The Media Card also appears in a reading.
The Moon is an extremely useful Servant for seeing past the illusions of daily life, people and The Operator’s own self-deception. Offerings can be made to enable The Operator to see past the story and locate the truth.
The Sigil can be used in conversations or interactions to aid in seeing if someone is being deceitful or lying, or to see if what appears to be happening is actually the truth.
The Operator may find The Moon Servant very helpful in Shadow work to enable them to see the repressed and unknowns side s of the personality that hold them back. This can be extremely hard and torturous work but also probably the most rewarding in terms of genuine clarity and happiness in life.
The Moon works extremely well on the night of the Full Moon, as one would expect.
