18 - The Moon

Author: Anja Heij

This is the Moon in her darkest hour, where everything looks strange and it is difficult to find your path.

Psychologically the Moon is the journey through the depths of the Underworld, our unconsciousness and deep fears.

Meaning: fear, illusion, falsehood, deception, error, nightmare, bewilderment, confusion and disorientation, obscurity, the brink of important change.

Reverse: escape from reality, hysteria, madness, a minor deception recognized before damage is done.
