For an introduction to the 78 days of tarot project, please click here.

Visual Card Description:  The moon is partially obscured by clouds.  Below it are two pyramids, the left one is black and the right one is white.  In the foreground there are two jackals resting on a bier, one black, one white, both wearing red ribbons around their necks.

Free Association:  Mystery, Entrance Into the Underworld, Ascension, Trial, Personal Transformation

Rider-Waite/Traditional Associations:  The Moon indicates that things may seem somewhat confusing to you now. You may find it hard to understand where you are coming from, much less what others are thinking and feeling! You need to try to sit with the uncertainty, don’t try to force things or people to do things before they are ready. This card is the "Pisces" of the tarot deck.

You are definitely in a more psychic and intuitive phase than usual, so it will be important for you to trust your instincts and your impressions, even if you don’t know where they are coming from. Also, not that you need to be mistrusting, but it will be helpful for you to realize that when this card appears, it’s possible that all is not what it seems. If you feel you can’t trust someone, then you probably can’t. Go with your gut. If you are waiting on an answer from someone, it may, unfortunately, take longer than you would like for it to. Try to stay patient.

Meaning from the lwb (little white book that came with this deck):  Visions, oddness, illusions, mistakes due to imagination.  Travel over the water, long and difficult researches.  Strange meetings.  Attraction for the unknown, occultism, adventure.

My interpretation:  You are about to enter into some of the mysteries that can only be accessed by intuition.  These may be confusing for you since you were previously unaware of their existence.  They may enrich how you view your world, but there may be a tendency to grab it and run with it, thereby taking these new understandings into extremes.  Temper your ideas with some realism.  While these ideas may feed your inner need for mystery, they may also obstruct you from seeing things only as they are.  Patience is key.  Let the ideas develop at their own pace.
