I think if I had to choose a favorite Lenormand card, it would be a toss up between The Tower and The Moon. This morning I was bored by the idea of pulling a three card draw, so instead I decided to record some of my musings about the Lenormand Moon.
In my readings, the Moon represents feelings and emotions. It indicates imagination, creativity and artistic ability. It denotes sensitivity, intuition and psychic ability.
The moon represents femininity and the female gender. It indicates the night time, and nocturnal dreams. For questions about timing, the moon shows that an event will occur ‘soon,’ usually within one month.
I think my favorite aspect of the Moon card is that it can be used in a very practical way as a gender marker. When it falls with the Child, the Moon indicates a female child. With the Bear, it could represent the querent’s mother or grandmother. With the Tree, it could point to female problems.
The Moon with the Heart or the Ring, adds a touch of romance. With the Man or Woman, it reveals a sensitive, romantic nature. And with the book, it can represent occult teachings.
In my own readings, I’ve found that the Moon often reveals where the querent’s emotions are invested. It can reveal who or what the querent cares most about, and it’s one of the first cards I look for in a spread.
A Few More Moon Combinations that work for me:
Moon + Fox = the night shift, moonlighting.
Moon + Coffin = feeling numb.
Moon + Clouds = emotionally unstable
Moon + Garden = a night out on the town
Moon + Crossroads = fluctuating emotions
