Tarot Card Moon Sun Enters Pisces
Tarot card Moon associated with the Sun in Pisces represents a period of dissolution depicting the end of a cycle.
When referring to cycle within the context of the following description, we must remember we are the cycle within what appears to be the sphere of the cosmos.
The image of the tarot card Moon is taken from the Tarot of the Morning Star deck.
Pisces being the final sign of the zodiac, represents the closing of our journey through the astrological signs. Tarot Moon, the card corresponding to Pisces, therefore graphically illustrates this closing of a cycle.
At this stage of the sequence we are witnessing the dissolving of one system into another. This is not recycling as in duplication, it is to move into a new and original sequence of experiences.
Vehicles of this move are the wolves in the foreground of the card who through their mastication of the old cycle create the substance for use in the new. Elements of the old cycle are retained but readjusted as memories and dreams for use in the new.
The red and blue colors of the background are opposite ends of the color spectrum.
For these reasons, tarot Moon is often associated with fear and dread because it symbolises our entry into new and original territory. Here in the realm of the Moon we are privy to the guidance of Gods, ancestor spirits and past life experiences that speak out of inner darkness to warn, advise and guide.
Tarot Moon and Pisces therefore represent a solvent.
On the QBL Tree of Life, Tarot Moon connects the sphere Netzach, Victory to the sphere Malkuth, the Material World. This can be read as victory of the material world meaning, to allow creations to be born, live and end. Everything that exists eventually becomes the stuff of memory and loss. Life is the experience of physical existence.
The Hebrew letter Qoph, corresponding to this path, means “back of head” symbolizing the subconscious mind, a fitting thought for Tarot Moon
