TODAY'S CARD is The Moon (XVIII). This version is from The Babylonian Tarot by Sandra Tabatha Cicero (review below in my post of June 5, 2006):

For comparison, here's The Moon in the Rider/Waite/Smith deck:

THE MOON: I recently posted an exploration of my relationship to the actual moon along with a moon poem, on my dreams and poetry blog (see link at bottom of this post). So I thought I'd cover The Moon card in this blog.


Addiction or an addictive tendency.

The real or the underlying issue is unconscious and therefore very unclear, if "seeable" at all at present.

The issue you are inquiring about is reflecting aspects of yourself you can't or don't want to see. Surrounding cards may help clarify, or drawing another card from the deck at random. If not, inquire again in the future.

You may not be able to see what you need to because past experiences are coloring your thinking. Maybe draw some additional cards at random on what these old experiences might be.

Long on dreams or ideas, but short on action.

Don't take risks or make changes now, wait until the storm is over or the clouds have cleared.

Things cannot be clear right now; wait.

You may need to allow for change or wildness in your life right now; you may be being overly responsible or controlling.

And with respect to one of the traditional interpretations of this card as referencing psychic abilities, here's an interesting quote I ran across: "A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." -- Oscar Wilde
