The Moon as personal essence card:

If the cross sum of your date of birth is 18 (the Moon) you can form a second cross sum: 1+8=9 (the Hermit). In many cases I read this dual essence card as follows:
Your introversy and your need for solitude and for looking for guidance in yourself and not in others (Hermit) does also make you very receptive for the unconscious, makes you empathic and gives you depth - but this means that you have little protection against suffering, and you may have difficulties sometimes to fully experience the light, joyful sides of life. There is a danger depression (the Moon). See to it that as a compensation for this character trait you actively turn to the outside world every now and again. Consciously look for wholesome, bright, beautiful, conflict-free situations in which you can experience light and joy.
