9 Days: The Moon

The Moon is a fickle creature. She provides just enough light to take the edge off the shadows that swirl in the misty unknown; but her presence at night also brings our fears out. In tarot, The Moon, allows us to get in touch with what’s buried deep below the surface. This is the card of the occult, of going deeper, and exploring things that have been buried deep within our subconscious.

I was chatting with Andrew when I composed this post. Both of us seemed to be misaligned with the energies of this card. Of course, when this happens, the solution always hits me. While sharing the premise of this post, it occurred to me that The Moon was hinting that today’s the perfect day to embrace the unknown. Let go of the the things we have no control over. For me, this includes not worrying about what’s going on these last days before I leave. I can only control what is in my sphere, anything external to that, will be what it is. This is also a good time for me to clear as much of my schedule as I can to give my husband some good attention before leaving his side for a whole week.
