Drawing the Moon card gives me a very good feeling. I've always been in love with the Moon. I think it may have something to do with the fact my Moon is in Pisces, according to my astrological chart, which makes intuition my best friend when I am right, and my worst enemy when I am wrong. Oh how true it is!
My Gemini Sun sign causes me to perhaps appear as a little eccentric or what I call a little wiggy.
The faces of the Moon is associated with self-esteem or one's identity, but I am quite comfortable in my wigginess, and don't much care about what people think. My loyal friends accept me as I am.
Finally the full moon is coming up this first week of March, on the 5th. I don't know exactly why, but I feel relieved and am looking forward to it. It has to do with the unconscious and intuition, which I am feeling very connected with these days. I've been trusting both more, and with more trust, comes an increase in intuition.
There is nothing certain in this card as Hecete, the goddess of the Underworld, and Apollo’s twin sister as Artemis, embodies confusion, uncertainty, the changing faces of life involving past, present and future, even the dark night of the soul, which we all experience at some point in our lives. From out of our confusion, the crab of truth will emerge.
Hecete controls the hidden things of nature. The light over her head symbolizes how she illuminates and brings wisdom, through faith and hope.
- The Moon
- ND, like a dying lady lean and pale,
- Who totters forth, wrapp'd in a gauzy veil,
- Out of her chamber, led by the insane
- And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,
- The moon arose up in the murky east
- A white and shapeless mass.
- Art thou pale for weariness
- Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
- Wandering companionless
- Among the stars that have a different birth,
- And ever changing, like a joyless eye
- That finds no object worth its constancy?
- - Percy Bysshe Shelly
