The Moon (R) shares deception and illusions – emotional instability are blocking your clear vision. Take no risks now – there is the possibility of misunderstanding. Make no changes – be patient and trust that things will clear up if you wait. Do not waste your energies on arguments or disagreements – hold on to your point of view and be willing to see things as they really are. Control your emotions and the situation will right itself in your favor. Stop fearing the “non-rational” and settling for a life of stagnation and sterility – allow yourself to experience your fears and they will turn to wonders as the gateway opens to new adventures. Allow your unconscious to become conscious – stop fighting it – it will not be denied.
The pitfall of over-identifying with humanity’s suffering. It can indicate incomplete or inadequate accommodation of elements of the subconscious, such as the shadow personality alluded to in the description of the Devil. Lack of awareness of emotions – you may feel a need for outside intervention.

Special Messages based on card position:
In the first position: You will depend on others even as they depend on you. Your heart will lead the way and many will follow.
In the second position: You may have been too involved with too many and too much, burning the candle at both ends.
In the third position: Love yourself before you attempt to love others. It will save you much time. When others give to you to fulfill your need, take wisely and only from within the means of your benefactor.
In the fourth position: Universal love cannot replace personal love. Each is needed to enhance the other. At another extreme, there is personal passion here without the balance of the universal and it can be a detached and limiting love/sex.
In the fifth position: The mind may be preoccupied with the heat of the moment more than the heart.
In the sixth position: You must be sure that you understand the similarities as well as the differences between compassion and passion. The heart must keep pure its motivations.
In the seventh position: The emotional goal and mental goal will eventually overlap completely, but for now you must guard against too much of the lower ego affecting the purity of balance between give and take.
In the eighth position: This is too sensitive, maybe too sweet, maybe too sour, but whichever, you should do what you can, if you can, to temper the situation.
In the ninth position: One can get lost temporarily in the power of exchange that is love and creativity.
In the tenth position: This process may be more for another than for yourself, but you are still a key player.
