Tarot Card of the Week: The Moon

The Moon

Tarot Card of the Week: Aug 15, 2016  – Aug 21, 2016

The Moon

This week we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius and what better card to depict the powerful energy that accompanies it than the Moon card from the the fabulous Shakespeare Oracle?

The Moon card traditionally speaks of struggling with feelings of anxiety over something that just doesn’t seem to be panning out they way you’d planned.

It represents our unconscious hopes and fears and is loaded with shadow material. This card tells us that things are uncertain, unsettled and unfinished and that the outcome is still very much up the air.

The Moon in this version is portrayed by Shakespeare’s Three Witches, who foretold MacBeth’s fate early on in the tragedy of the same name.

The “Weird Sisters,” (as they were also known) were mysterious, ambiguous and contradictory, much like the Moon in the night sky.
