The Moon

Oh joy! I finished one of the Tarot series: The Moon. I like how the pattern of the gown turned out, very realistic >w< Feel like wanna redraw the previous card, The Fool. I don't like how it was. D: here is the description of THE MOON.


Symbolism

  • Two large, foreboding pillars are shown. Some see them as tombstones, others relate them to Karma.
  • Two wild beasts howl at the moon.
  • A crayfish appears in the water.
  • The Moon is "shedding the moisture of fertilizing dew in great drops" (Waite). These are numbered 15 in the Rider-Waite deck and are Yodh-shaped. On this basis, some associate this card with impregnation.


Here is the drawing!
