A Taste of Tarot: Pisces and The Moon
A look at the symbolism of Pisces' Tarot Card, The Moon
Every zodiac sign is ruled by a Tarot card from the Major Arcana! The zodiac sign of Pisces is ruled by The Moon card.
Here we take a look at the symbolic connections between sensitive Pisces and The Moon...
The Spiritual Fish: Pisces
A sensitive Water sign, Pisces is represented by two Fish, earning the nickname, "the Fishes with wishes" because of their powerful imagination and creative spirit. If you’re looking for kindness and empathy, Pisces is THE most compassionate sign of the zodiac. Pisces rules the 12th House of Privacy, Escape, and Secrets.
In addition to being a Water sign, Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, also known as the God of the Sea. These dreamy little fish are spiritual and intuitive, with Pisces being the most psychic sign of all.
Pisces and the Moon
Like Pisces, The Moon card is associated with the subconscious and often highlights idealism -- suggesting that things are not as they may appear. The Moon card also represents our secretive side or "shadow self".
The dog and the wolf in this card represent how our wild side blends with our tame side. This recurring theme of unity can also be found in the towers. They symbolize the practical life that most of us lead, while the path between them reminds us of the more meaningful life that we desire. This is very true to the nature of Pisces, who are always dreaming of something more fantastic than what is actually in front of them.
The water on The Moon card symbolizes the subconscious. The crustacean emerging from the water represents "coming into consciousness" and the possession of psychic abilities, which is often true of those born under Pisces.
