To the Moon
Today, my Card of the Day was the Moon, and I asked it what I should know or do today. Now, this card is seen by many as a rather negative card, with connotations of deception, lunacy, fear, and confusion. But as I’ve often mentioned, there are no “good” cards or “bad” cards; they all have a spectrum of meaning. And as I pondered this card, a couple of meanings came to mind.
One, which arises from this card’s nighttime association, is “rest.” Considering that I hurt my back recently and it has been slow to heal since I’ve been loath to slow down, there seemed a great deal of wisdom in that advice. And as a result, my back is feeling better today.
The second insight I got from this card is a suggestion to use this restful time in reflection, to delve into the unconscious a bit. “Coincidentally” I happened to come across a link to a great “Sounds True” meditation video, which I listened to and then saved. In fact, I was happy to find that Sounds True has a whole series of videos on YouTube, which I might have passed over if I hadn’t been in “rest and reflection” mode due to my card of the day.
