The Moon: Our Shadow Self
Although, the Moon symbolizes the unconsicous and all that goes with it e.g., dreams, nightmares, anxiety, disturbing emotions we mustn't shun it. Instead, we need to embrace all its gifts, scary or not. If we allow that to happen ,we will receive those messages meant to come through to us. If we reject the stranger aspects of the Moon we run the risk of remaining 'stuck' psychologically and spiritually.
Finally, the number eighteen adds up to a nine which corresponds to the Hermit in the Major Arcana which, really, is an ideal pairing. It is the Hermit, afterall, who reminds us of the importance of contraction and reflection and what better way of doing that than by the light of the silvery moon?
