The Moon represents intuition, dreams and this card helps us to delve in the unconscious. The light of the moon is a reflection of that of the Sun. The light of the moon is dim - it illuminates softly. It creates an aura of mystery, uncertainty and vagueness. This is not enough for us as we journey towards higher consciousness.

The path leading between the two towers into the mountains in the distance is the way to reach the unconsciousness. Overall, the card is all about dreams, intuitions, unconscious, psychic and mystery.
