The lovely Moon indicates honors, respect, recognition, creativity, optimism, beauty, and attraction. All sorts of good things flow to us under its influence. On the job or socially, we’re popular and recognized for our contribution. It softens the effects of negative cards and affirms that positivity surrounds us. The Moon has a soft energy and indicates that good things will soon come. It’s also about psychic ability and spiritual matters, and several combinations bring this out.
When negatively aspected, the Moon is all illusions, clouded thinking, melancholy, instability, imbalance, mental and emotional tension, and lack of credibility or appreciation.
IN THE PORTRAIT & GRAND TABLEAU
On the first or central placement of the nine-card portrait, we receive honors and recognition, and are popular on the job or elsewhere. In the central position especially, we could receive an offer. The advice of the Moon is to assume an optimistic attitude and to act honorably. It also advises us to follow our intuition and express our creativity. We should take things easy and trust our good to unfold. At the same time, we need to make the effort to reach out and make a positive impression.
In the Tableau, The Moon near the significator brings its positive traits including honors, appreciation, and even glory, but when far its negative qualities prevail and can even imply scandal and defamation, depending on the severity of nearby negative cards.
The Moon encourages us to love and care for ourselves, so spending time in peacefulness, doing healthy things and improving our appearance are all well-starred under its influence. It’s a soft card that reminds us to take it easy and be kind to others. Because it’s associated with femininity and fertility, it also encourages us to express our creativity.
