my favorite name is luna, and i love the moon; i love the restlessness and vigor of the night. i feel sluggish during the day; at night, i feel like a cat ready to pounce. i feel ready to dance away and shout and skip and live, live, live, LIVE.
i took a test for fun: which tarot card are you? ever since grade school, i’ve been obsessed with the new age and mystical stuff. i keep a tarot set at the house, and i love looking at the pictures. i’ve also been fascinated with the moon all my life. i’ve heard so many tales about it.
i love the tale told to us by my high school lit teacher. that was about the man in the moon. it’s actually a movie he made us watch, about two sisters who fell in love with one hottt man. our teacher used the man in the moon as a metaphor. he is there, living on the moon. he is waiting under a tree, and his silhouette is the only one comforting you. i often looked at the moon, and think of the man in the moon, his hands, his thoughts. does he stare at women and men looking up at him, and wordlessly telling him about their heartaches, their silent joys, their secrets, their tantric prayers? does he even listen? is he the one sending falling stars? does he cry? does he read my poems when i write in the middle of the night? does he whisper other names of god to us?
lo and behold! i took the test quickly, without analyzing stuff, and look what i got. i got the moon lady… must be fate, must be the night…
You are The Moon
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery – when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
as usual, there’s the case of my spontaneity, and that word again, madness. all logic is thrown out the window…hmm, i think i’ve been stepping on shards for quite a long time now.

unexpected continuation for moon lady
i was again wondering as to how a search engine tagged my blog with the keywords, moon lady. so i tried it, and i found out that amy tan has a book called moon lady. i have been so out of touch. i’ve been an amy tan fan since high school, and i immensely enjoyed her two books, kitchen god’s wife and the hundred secret senses. the titles alone make me shudder in beautiful anticipation of her stories. when somebody close died, i found a paragraph from the book, hundred secret senses, very touching. it said that all our loved ones who passed away are wholly felt with our hundred secret senses. hmm, i’ll reserve this for another entry.. it’s so overwhelming.. right now, i like how every little thing i ponder on slips into place. my little joys in life…
