Today’s card is The Moon.

A face in the moon glares down, critically. At the edge of the water, at the beginning of a long path between two towers, a dog and a wolf howl. Between them, a crustacean crawls from the waters onto land.

The Moon represents mystery, secrets, and the oddities of the mind. The three animals represent the three Freudian partitions of the mind: the wolf is the Id, the unrestrained needer of pleasure; the crustacean the Superego, pure alien logic; and the dog the Ego, a synthesis of logic and emotion that brings greater thinking. These three creatures stand at the start of a long, long path that leads over the horizon. The Moon drives us to begin our journey on this path, to free ourselves from the fears of the unconscious mind, and to become something greater than a mere animal: a Person.
