“The Moon Girl’s round white face glows, peering out from between two pillars painted with the silhouettes of howling wolves. The High Priestess’ veil has become the curtain on Moon Girl’s stage, separating her from the physical world and the spirtitual world. The backdrop painted on the stage behind her comes to life, and the ocean crashes in around her. A crayfish climbs onto her skirt to escape the deluge, and moths, attracted by her light, flutter around her face, distracting from her true predicament.”
On a stage, a young girl kneels before two pillars – the backdrop suggestive of a portal to a dream world. On these pillars are images of two howling creatures, representing the two sides of our nature. One is a fierce wolf, savage and primal, the other a dog, defensive and civilized. From this portal, primordial mists roll in, and waters crash around her, as she waits, oblivious to all that goes on around her – perhaps she is lost in dreams of things to come. Upon her skirt sits a crayfish, emerging from the waters of our conscious self as it begins to break down the walls of illusion into the material world.
Just as this Moon Girl allows herself to succumb to her subconscious mind, this card suggests doing the same, reminding us that things are not always as they seem, and that you should pay attention to your intuition and dreams.
