Symbolism and Meaning of the Moon Tarot Card
The Moon, with her borrowed light, looks down on the nocturnal world. The path of the spirit winds between the two towers of duality, of good and evil, light and darkness. A dog and a wolf, enslaved to the terror of darkness and ignorance, howl with fear. A crab, the symbol of the astrological sign of Cancer, climbs out of the water to begin the path of the spirit. Thus the spirit must overcome the terrors of darkness and ignorance to find its way to the mountain of knowledge and enlightenment.
The Tarot is a system of both divination (foretelling the future or the circumstances of the present or past) and philosophy. It is said that after the burning of the great library at Alexandria, the scholars, mystics and philosophers created the system of Tarot so that the ancient wisdom could always be received. Tarot images represent the great archetypes in a manner that makes them open to understanding on many levels.
