A waning crescent moon hangs in the center of the sky, at the darkest point. It has a yellow hue, but doesn’t emit any rays of light to guide us. It is only a pale, partial reflection. Things aren’t always as they seem under the light of the moon.

The moon is positioned between two evergreen trees. The evergreens we saw in the Emperor and even the Tower were full and healthy-looking. The evergreens here, though, are sparse and have a more chaotic, lopsided appearance.

The ground is not visible, either, making it hard to catch our bearings, adding to the association of confusion we’ve come to associate with the moon. In the faint light of the moon, we question what is real and what is imagined, what is beautiful fantasy and what is pure madness.

The moon shows a nighttime world of imagination and psychic exploration. This can be a stunning, fantastical and psychedelic experience. But it can also become confusing, misleading or bewildering. This is an untamed landscape where anything is possible. It can be an intriguing place to explore – as long as we don’t become lost forever.
