The Moon is challenging card to understand. It is a step on the journey that forces us to face our own limitations, and accept that there are things we simply cannot understand. This card indicates that here are events that influence the path which come from other sources: past lives, angels, guides, or a trickle-down effect perhaps from someone who lives at a distance. There is simply no way to know everything that is affecting any situation. Sometimes these small things influence in a bigger way, just as the phases of the moon affect the tides. Often it is difficult to comprehend the idea that there is a web of effects culminating into an apex of other influences and sources. The Moon beckons us to release the need to understand everything and to pay attention to the patterns in our lives. The moon is half-submerged in the water; the woman is half-submerged in the water. The source of the problem is actually completely submerged in the water of mystery and is the source of a self-consuming cycle that will never be understood.
