Tarocchi Fool’s Journey: Card 18 (The Moon)

  • by

In the beginning, there was the Fool; and the Major Arcana plays out the rest of his tale. “The Fool’s Journey” is a fascinating and important concept for both beginners and tarot pros alike. Come along with me as I revisit this journey through 22 cards from 22 different decks.

The Moon: Illuminated Illusions

The hopeful bliss the Fool feels with the Star may bring him joy and peace, but also puts him in a hazy, dreamy state that makes him an easy victim for illusions, fears, and deception. While the light of the Moon can inspire the imagination and awaken the intuition, it also opens up other parts of the Fool’s subconscious — causing anxiety, confusion, and deep-seated fears to arise.

The Moon in the Paulina Tarot by Paulina Fae is dizzyingly beautiful with its details and whimsical design. While the traditional RWS symbols are still here, the way the creatures and objects are drawn gives off a strong feeling that nothing is what it seems. Even if the Moon is shining bright as day, you just know there is more to this scene than meets the eye. The Moon can illuminate the path toward higher consciousness, but it makes us more prone to being tripped up by our own fears and shadows.
