A new beginning, a new opportunity, a chance to dream...
The Moon is ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion, fantasy, and imagination. Therefore when the Moon appears in your reading you are likely going through a confusing period and there is a lot of clouded judgment. It also represents being controlled by your subconscious mind and your fears. The Moon gives us a sense that the only way to change our fate is through our conscious will.
The Moon tarot card represents confusion, mystery, and the unconscious. The Moon card in the tarot represents our own fears and insecurities.

The upright Tower tarot card represents things that will be going out of the world in the future and might potentially destroy you. It is a disaster card, and disaster can come in various forms. It can be a fire, earthquake, or flood that will affect the things you hold dear. It is an inevitable part of life and we all must go through it regardless of what we do or don’t do. The Tower will shake you out of your comfort zone and out of your complacency.
The Tower tarot card denotes that you will be hit by a situation that can bring a lot of destruction and turmoil into your life.

It also shows that you will be forced to stand alone in your situation and face the consequences without anybody to help you.
Having a close relationship with our darker sides comes naturally to us as humans. It’s very much a part of who we are – our shadow self, as the Devil likes to be called.
The Devil card is bound to have a negative connotation for most people as it is often associated with things such as addictions, gambling, and promiscuity, among others. However, this card doesn’t necessarily represent these things by implication. On the other hand, it can be about the power of the subconscious to manipulate our physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
In any case, one can also find the Devil card in a reading as a reminder that the Devil in you is also a powerful part of you, and it is about time to acknowledge those aspects of yourself and accept them for who they are. This card is calling you to examine the things and situations that are taunting you and ask yourself whether they are useful to you or not.
In a reading, the Devil card may also suggest that, even if you recognize the negative side of a situation, you can struggle to do something about it.
Temperance is the divine card of flow and balance. When this card appears it is time to bring things into harmony and make peace with others and nature. You are creating a new cycle of life and the universe is in perfect alignment with your intention.
In contrast to the dual nature of the World and the Tower cards, the Temperance card is full of positive energy. This is the card of the ‘serene sea’ and the ‘still waters’. Here we see the calm before a storm, the still waters before the waves that will soon break, the equilibrium before the disruption of the opposing forces. With this card, we are advised to stay in the present moment and do our best to allow things to flow and be in a state of harmony with everyone and everything around us.
Temperance is a card about ‘flow’, about making decisions as your instincts tell you and doing the right thing when it is time to flow.
In the beginning, there was a void and darkness in the unknown. Out of the void came a spark of life, one that would lead to creation. Death is a symbol of new beginnings. You see, the soul doesn’t stop when the body dies. It is a spark of Life that is eternal and connected to the Divine.
After the breaking of bread, there was the breaking of the body. It was a life that we were eating – and from life comes more energy. What is left can only be changed, but the energy left after the meal can only be used up. Like bread, time and energy are available for a short ride, then they must be used.
In the Death tarot card, there is both the beginning and the end. It’s as if the world stops, and everything becomes static. There is no life, and one is unable even to change position. Things that are dead must go to the underworld so that the living can continue.
In my mind, there is much more to this card than just the ‘death’ of something.
The Hanged Man is one of the most misunderstood Major Arcana cards of the Tarot deck. The story of the Magician has us believing that the Hanged Man is an indication of bad luck and/or a magician who might be a charmer at the time of performing tricks but is not to be trusted. The Hanged Man, however, is more about timing than it is about illusion.
Like The Magician, the Hanged Man does represent change and transformation but in a different, much more subtle way than the Magician. When the Hanged Man is upright, it suggests that a pause is necessary so you can think about what you have done and how you are going to go forward. It asks you to be still because sometimes we need some time to reflect on ourselves and our circumstances to gain a better understanding of ourselves and what we can do to improve our lives.
Justice is about karma and karmic law, or what happens as a result of our thoughts and intentions. When it comes to tarot, Justice is the key card in the deck and a symbol for the Justice of The World.
In the upright position, Justice symbolizes the balance between right and wrong.

A balance will be struck for any wrong done to you in a previous life or one from this lifetime. Even if you may have hurt or harmed someone or something, know that if you are willing to learn, it is in your best interest to not go this route again.
Justice is also about the truth of the matter. People will be held accountable for their deeds and actions – but we must also be true to ourselves and our souls. The person that has suffered the repercussions of another’s misdeed will be compensated financially as well as emotionally and spiritually. Be assured that justice will be served.

This has helped you to find ways that you can change the situation and get yourself out of it.
The Wheel of Fortune indicates fortune. The appearance of this card predicts that your life is about to change for the better.

The Hermit is often associated with the personification of the soul. Now is your time to tune into your Higher Self once more and reconnect to his guidance and inner wisdom so that you may once again hear what he has to offer.

As you venture deeper into your own personal journey, it is inevitable that you will experience a significant loss to the parts of yourself and your life that you had built and loved. As a result of this, you may feel alone, abandoned, and cut off from the outside world. Now is the time to focus all of your attention on your soul’s journey.

The Hierophant is the card of tradition, of the structure one has grown up in, of the rules one has learned. Many symbols related to the Hierophant appear throughout the Tarot deck, and some of them are the pillars of traditional systems. There are institutions that rely on faith in religion, the role of government in the community, the importance of education and how we deal internally and our interactions with others. All these traditions are to benefit the people as a whole. This card emphasizes the importance of these established systems to our community and its future.
On the other hand, the Hierophant can also represent the negative impact of tradition, especially when it stands for the ruling class.
