Key 18-THE MOON
The universal principle of Choice and Authenticity.
This has been called the Karma Card ( work that needs to be done). Ultimately, we have a daily choice between supporting our authentic self or our dutiful man-made self. There is the Real which is the Spiritual Being and then there is reality, the indoctrinated identity that we call our ego or personality.
In this card we see the gates that are guarded by the Ra kings of Egyptian sun god myth, who stabilize and protect our energy as we transform from reality selves to our memory of Real Self. We also see Anubis the Egyptian jackal headed god of Transformation who remind us that we must leave the old to experience anything new. If know that everyone you see is another way of being you---you are in the Real sight of divine self-awareness. If you see everyone as enemy or friend, you suffer from reality blindness brought on by the survival mind of the animal that you should own but now owns you. This is a card of illusion and reminds us that the illusion of the senses(and senses are all psychosomatic, meaning that not everyone has the same sensual experience from same environments. In other words they are not scientific proof.). the body is only 1% of us, and its purpose is to define thought as life expanding or not. Reality is defined as trans-formative, the Real is the One who Transforms but is not the transformation itself. You may also see the Scarab beetle on the bottom of this card. This is the symbol of the Egyptian god Khepri, the god of transformations.In this illustration, the Scarab is rolling the Sun across the horizon, into the other-world in the evening and this world at the dawn. This represents the renewal of life and the Real eternal existence which is invisible and thus called dark. This card also represents the water sign Pisces,. The traditional two fish of Pisces are symbolized here as the Anubi gate guardians, and represent the Picean commitment to evolutionary transformation. When this card is thrown, the querent is reminded that they are functioning in the realm of the unconsious where they become aware that reality is a dream, that time/space and physical bodies are merely conceptions, and therefore deep cellular change is possible. Often this is the Shamanic call to enter into the darkness of unconscious desires and fears so that you may transform them into functional motion rather than dysfunctional illusion. Being that this is a brief, there is a lot more information to be gleaned from this card.
