I'm taking you along with me as I create a new card deck for myself. I will create it with an American Indian theme as I did once before. What is Lenormand? - check out my previous article.

Card 32 - Moon

First of all, those of you familiar with traditional tarot will know the moon as a symbol of illusion. It's a very different card in Lenormand. Although not exactly the same as the Native American Indian tribal symbol, it's much more in harmony with that (and Celtic mythology) than the tarot symbol.

When we think of the CARD, we tend to think of:

  • The divine feminine, maternal protection, unconditional love
  • Peace, serenity, relaxation, a time for closeness and bonding
  • Deep feeling, dream messages, and thinking introspectively
  • Romance, love, eroticism, passionate energy
  • Restlessness, sleeplessness, the light in the darkness, revelation
  • Obscurity, insecurity, looking for answers hidden in the darkness...

So, there are some positive and some negative aspects. Compare with the other cards in your spread and to the particular situation the questioner finds themselves in.

For my new card, For my new card, I hit Google Images search, looking for something with CC0 (Creative Commons 0) licensing meaning that I don't always have to remember to credit someone - essential if I were to start doing paid readings with these cards.

I also had to find out which traditional playing card is associated with this card. So, here is my result:

It was hard to find a good picture.
I like this one though because of the feeling of serenity and comfort that being in a nice warm tipi in the wilderness, under the full moon, would bring. (I'm assuming that the fire here is well-tended and in an appropriate enclosure - even a ring of stones would suffice.) Even the fire lends to the passionate/restless feeling that the card can mean. So, it ends up being a very relevant image.

Thank you!

Interesting work, that tent looks comfortable. 😊

Thanks. Yeah, I think that would be a great place to live for awhile. One year, when I went camping with a group of people, there was a fairly decent wind storm and many people with modern fancy-dancy tents suffered a lot of damage. (My family had tiny tents which didn't suffer at all.) But the largest tent in the camp was a teepee, and it suffered absolutely nothing. The strongest of the bunch, and shaped correctly to basically ignore the wind.

I lived in a teepee for about 3 years when I lived in AZ. Loved it! I was fortunate to travel through the woods of Germany in the early 90's where we sewed and harvested the poles and made them.. Good times. This shape creates a double green vortex, like that of a pyramid or dodechahedron shape. So fun, to experiment with the perfect fire as to have all the smoke spiral up and out the center! My native American friends are masters of the fire keeper. They can take 3 pieces of wood and make it burn in the formation of a phoenix bird. Thanks for the creative work here, flashed me back to another time in space. I think the 8 is appropriate as it it a torrid field of infinity and the MOON represents that perfectly...

Awesome, thanks!
I was just telling Trincowski here that I was camping with some people one year and the teepee in the bunch was by far the sturdiest (and sexiest) of the structures there. I can't think of a nicer shelter design - the only one that comes close is the yurt.
