Day of the Moon (card 18: a day with deep knowledge and new horizons)

The Moon is a difficult card for most to read. It has been deemed the card of the subconscious or the hidden treasures of the unknown knowledge from within.

There is an odd duality in the card: the dog and the fox, the two towers, the Moon that hides the Sun and the path that goes in between with the Scorpio beginning that journey. So what is that all about?

The Scorpio is the symbol of the disciple. We must not forget that the Waite tarot deck, and many alike, arose at the time of the Golden Dawn and the Alice A. Bailey period, as well as the high rise of the Freemasons in a modern form following the new hidden societies of America of the faction that separated from the OWO. And the card naturally carries all of the hidden knowledge of the Brotherhoods going back to the Priesthood of Atlantis.

The Moon is probably the most heavily loaded card in the deck with that knowledge. And there is a reason for that. It is the key to the unknown. The One that is able to understand the Moon and the duality of powers, can call herself a disciple of the hidden sciences.

Well, the two pillars, or Towers, is the symbol that goes with many of the cards in tarot; both the Minor and Major Arcana, and they are the symbol of our reality, or the pillars of reality

As Bailey - more correctly her Sirian B Master Djwal Khul and how he put it:

There is little more that I need say and little else upon which I need at this stage of study to comment. The man who is nearing the path of discipleship or who is already a disciple—pledged or under observation—will profit much from a deep and systematic study of this sign (the Scorpio). I would suggest that the student bear in mind the position of this sign. Scorpio stands midway between two signs of balance or of equilibrium—Sagittarius and Libra. Libra marks an interlude or a notable point of balance before the strenuous testing and trial of Scorpio. Sagittarius marks another point of balance which follows after that testing, for the Archer has to acquire and hold a steady eye, hand and stance prior to firing the arrow which, when rightly directed and correctly followed, will carry him through the portal of initiation.

The Moon, and the path of the Moon, is the initiation into the hidden sciences, shown by the pillars in front of the Scorpio. The disciple leaves the waters and mirage of the astral plane and ego perceptions, and begins the path into full knowledge. And with that, the journey into the deeper levels of the program can begin; or at least that is how it used to be. With the OWO, and the old Masters of the ISP gone, things are not that occult any more. But the Moon, and the work with the ISP on the deeper levels, is a work for the master of energy, for the adult that knows the forces within that can be on either side of the pillars.

The two fighting forces within man, the fox (the animal instinct and the animal genetics creating an untamed ego) and the dog (the domesticated and controlled animal instincts creating an ego that is under the dominion of a master, here the soul) are to be passed as in learned to control, using both sides in us to walk the path to generate the needed dynamic between raw force and patience, needs and will.

And although we know that the Brotherhood (the Mahatmas aka Sirian B humanoid souls) were, and are, part of the reversed program, and have worked within it to unfold their Neanderthal Sirian B human-humanoid project, they have based their development rotundum on the Thothian wheel of energy; the tarot. And we must not forget that Thoth was a stellar humanoid (outside the program) often depicted as a dog/fox showing us the trickster of Wisdom. That the hidden knowledge can be used for both sides of the program, the two pillars, if the student knows how to reverse the hidden meaning of the wheel.

Thus, a disciple knows both sides of the program, and can work with both, mastering the Thothian sciences of magic.

The Moon does not stand alone. It is the higher octave of the Hermit (card 9), where the in-program human begins the journey of inner exploration. The Hermit works alone and is only guided by the inner, faint, light of intuition and information from within. And that inner steering is what leads to the full blown knowledge in the Moon, where the Hermit becomes the Scorpio or the disciple. 

(A disciple is both a student of the hidden sciences but also the in-program human that is beginning to connect to the soul and from that, is infused with soul knowledge, aka intuition and thus gets all from within; how to live, how to know, how to master the program).

That is what the Moon is all about.
