Moon Tarot

My exploration into the question of ‘Are We Moon Food?’ begins after a restless nights sleep during which I stumbled across an article by Tom Montalk. It was called ‘Food For The Moon’. With a natal Moon conjunct MC by 1º, I have always been puzzled by the moon and its spellbinding reputation. Over the years I’d heard some online mumblings that the Moon was some kind of hollow, alien satellite that was controlling us… I just thought that was silly, and yet another way of demonising the divine feminine. Yet it is also quite strange that Islam is a Moon cult rather than a solar one (despite their extreme version of patriarchy.) See Moon-o-theism.. (I have yet to finish this tome! But it’s free off the net.) On the other hand Persian Zoroastrianism was a Solar Cult, with male and female worshipping together, much like pagan Europe, before Abrahamic religions rampaged their way to the west…

Anyway, back to the Moon, I don’t think it is an alien space craft… but I have to admit, there certainly is something suspect about the moon! In my research and in practise with clients, the outer planets and difficult stars always seemed far more problematic when in hard aspect to the moon. There is no denying that the Moon has a powerful, measurable and very physical effect on humans, a night spent in a psychiatric ward on a full Moon will confirm that. Tom Montalk says in his article.

“In the cosmological schema, earth is like a mother to the moon which is still a fetus in the sense that it cannot yet “breathe” on its own, hold an atmosphere, or support life. Gurdjieff said: “The Moon is actually a fragment of this Earth, which must now constantly maintain the Moon’s existence.” In that sense, the moon is like a parasitic thoughtform.

Nevertheless, the equation is balanced because in exchange for the moon propelling our mechanical movement, we feed the moon so that it may grow and one day be born as a living planet…. According to Ouspensky, the moon acts as a giant electromagnet pulling upon all organic life on earth and sucking into itself the soul essence of dying creatures. The moon is an embryonic planet receiving its nutrition from organic life on earth through an etheric umbilical cord, an energy conduit between earth and moon.”

Now this energy conduit could explain the behaviour of Black Moon Lilith in our charts, after all, it is the Lunar Apogee. ‘Food For The Moon’ is a long article, but I urge you to read it. It is very well researched and explores what other esoteric writers such as Mouravieff, Ouspensky, and Gurdjieff also say about the Moon. The following sentence really sang to me as I think this is true not just for the Moon, but for planetary influences in general.

Full Moon Effects“The degree to which one’s actions are driven by the moon is proportional to one’s level of reactivity and non-being. For people incapable of moving themselves through life by nobler spiritual impulses, the moon provides a propulsive force.”

So my job as an astrologer I think should be to provide a shipping forecast if you like. I can’t tell you how to sail your ship, or where you should throw down your anchor. I can provide a map of the terrain, but then it is up to you.

Hyper-dimensional Realms

Tom Montalk has conducted some fascinating research into the effect of Lilith as the Lunar Apogee and also her opposite point known as Priapus the Lunar Perigee. As a moderator of an alternative discussion forum, Tom had the opportunity to test the Moon’s influence on the publics moods. He says:

“After numerous months of this, it finally dawned on me that these disruptive episodes followed a cyclical pattern…..I have concluded that the gravitational interaction between earth, moon, and sun causes cyclical variation in the separation between dimensions and densities. Just before and after a new or full moon, the dimensional veil is thinnest and hostile forces from other realms,…have an easier time penetrating into the physical plane… occult practices become more effective. Invocations, psychic warfare, scrying and remote viewing are assisted during such times.”

2015 Horoscopes



  1. You mentioned seeing the effects of a full moon clearly in a psych ward; well, I WAS admitted to a psych ward this year (Feb. 3, 2015) on a full moon. Actually, looking back through my year… a weird pattern emerges.

    Feb 3, 2015, full moon: admitted to psych ward, suicidal from unhappiness in the military.

    March 5 full moon: terrible relationship fight. publicly came out to my military chain of command that I hated being in the service. learned I had extra bones in my foot and another skeletal issue.

    April full moon: completed an out-patient treatment program for depression, was sent back to the military full-time to work in an office.

    May full moon: Various stressful things, surprise meeting with Commander, fight with psychiatrist.

    June 2, full moon: discharged from military. huge life shift into a new line of work in a different location.

    July 1, full moon: feeling incredibly unwell in living situation, I moved across the country by myself, partner decided this was the end of our relationship.

    July 31, full moon: totally fell off the bandwagon with a six-week personal challenge that was intended to improve my health and lessen the affects of my agoraphobia. drank too much and didn’t go outside for days.

    August 29, full moon: a marathon journaling/reflection session while waiting in an airport all day. I had some great breakthroughs in terms of objectively looking at my life.

    Sept. 27, full (blood) moon: spent with my sister viewing the blood moon. last day she spoke with her dad before she found out he died a couple days later.

    Oct. 13 (new moon): asperger’s diagnosis.

    Oct. 27, (today’s full moon): trying to come to grips with the moral ambiguity of my new line of work, I decided to go back to school in a different field and did all the appropriate paperwork to start in three months’ time. mailed a lot of unsent letters to my former lover.

    Everything major that has happened this year has involved me feeling like I’m falling through life, rather than authoring it for myself. And it has all happened within a day of the full moon (in one instance the new moon), without fail. The weird part is that in NONE of these cases except for the one in which I directly viewed the Blood Moon and today did I even take note of it being a full moon. I didn’t ascribe any particular astrological importance to those days in advance or during… frequently don’t take the time to notice such things.

    This one quote is just… everything: “The degree to which one’s actions are driven by the moon is proportional to one’s level of reactivity and non-being. For people incapable of moving themselves through life by nobler spiritual impulses, the moon provides a propulsive force.”


    • also, I meant to include that my move to a new apartment is also scheduled for a full moon (Dec. 11-12, 2015).

      why am I always running away on a full moon???

  2. Well done! I think by asking the right questions, that right answers are finding you! It’s really important to educate and offer the exploration of other seas at the same time keeping our selves grounded and protected!
    I think we are all looking for a quick fix, or explanation in such an over whelming world where all the knowledge has been distorted and we are search in the dark looking for answers!
    I like your new approach and find it a very moderate, educated, and a breath of fresh air! It’s time for us to wake up n stop expecting to be silver spoon fed 🙂
