The Moon

As we come across the Moon, we observe a trail that extends into the distance. Positioned on either side of the path are a wolf and a dog, symbolizing our primal instincts - one being domesticated and the other untamed. From the pond where the path originates, a crawfish is seen crawling out. Two towers are visible in the distance flanking the central path, once again suggesting the dual nature of this card. The whole scene appears to mirror itself, hinting at the presence of two possibilities. As we proceed down the path, we straddle the line between consciousness and unconsciousness, civilization and nature, represented respectively by the dog and the wolf. The towers at opposite ends represent the opposing forces of good and evil, and their similarity in appearance suggests the challenge we face in differentiating between them.


Meaning of Upright Moon

The upright Moon tarot card symbolizes the anxieties and illusions that often arise when one imagines fear in the present and future due to past experiences. You may have suffered emotional pain from a traumatic event, and rather than addressing those feelings, you buried them deep in your subconscious. Now, those emotions are resurfacing and may be affecting you on a conscious or subconscious level. For example, if you were in a car accident as a child and never processed your emotions, you may feel sad or anxious every time you sit in the backseat of a car. To move forward, it is important to connect with your subconscious mind and release any concerns or anxieties. Hypnosis, counseling, or shamanic healing can all be helpful in this process.

Upright Moon: Love

This stage will prompt you to consider the dynamics between you and your partner if you are committed. While your relationship may seem stable, there may be underlying issues that have been the source of previous arguments or insecurities. Remembering these issues may cause feelings of uncertainty or insecurity in the relationship, and a desire for change may arise. It is important to approach this desire for change calmly and avoid rushing into any decisions. For those who are single, it is important to exercise caution when meeting someone who seems "too good to be true." People often put their best foot forward at the beginning of a relationship, and if you wait long enough, you may discover some hidden flaws.

Upright Moon: Career

If the Moon Tarot card shows up in a professional setting, you may experience doubt or worry about your career path. Poor communication between you, your colleagues, or your superiors could result in misunderstandings or issues at work. Additionally, you may not have all the information you need to make important decisions because someone is withholding information from you. Your current career path may be causing some uncertainty, as you may not be clear about your goals or the direction you should take. Alternatively, a hostile work environment may exist due to unclear project objectives or uncertainty about each employee's responsibilities.

Upright Moon: Finances

At present, it may not be advisable to make significant financial choices because the Moon indicates that the information you have access to is incomplete. If you're currently in the midst of making financial decisions, it's important to investigate thoroughly and inquire about any concerns you may have, to ensure that you make the most informed choice possible. The current situation may be causing confusion and uncertainty regarding finances.

Meaning of Reversed Moon

If the tarot card appears in a reversed position, you may experience a decrease in anxiety, a reduction in fear, and a fading out of negativity from your surroundings. Additionally, your mind may become clearer, allowing you to perceive the truth about a particular matter. Honesty will be a useful tool for managing the uncertainties and insecurities in your life, so speak truthfully and listen carefully to others. You may discover that you share more common ground with others than you previously thought.

Reversed Moon: Love

In love, the reversed Moon can signify the revelation of deceit or treachery in a romantic relationship, potentially exposing an affair or revealing previously concealed aspects of a partner's true nature. This may serve as a wake-up call to recognize the reality of the relationship and any self-deception that may have been present. In the case of unmarried individuals, the reversed Moon may indicate a restoration of calm and self-confidence following a challenging period, or a disregard for intuition or warning signs when considering a potential partner.

Reversed Moon: Career

In career, the reversed Moon can signal the dissipation of the uncertainty and confusion that has characterized your job or workplace. Things may be more clear, and you may have a better understanding of which direction you should be working towards. Alternatively, the reversed Moon can also indicate a worsening of the situation, where misunderstandings and poor communication can even turn into deception, lying and sabotage. Your anxieties and fear about the workplace or your colleagues can make your worst fears come true, as everyone becomes more defensive, protective and paranoid.  

Reversed Moon: Finances

In finance, it can indicate gaining a clear understanding of your financial situation and goals in favorable situations. You'll have access to all the necessary information to make an informed decision about a major investment or life choice. On the other hand, in less favorable situations, the reversed Moon may imply dishonesty concerning your finances. Trust your instincts but make an effort to differentiate between intuition and fear.


The Moon card can be quite demanding for the person getting the reading, particularly when drawn in reverse. It requires a high level of self-awareness, as delving into one's subconscious involves letting go and showing oneself compassion. Despite its challenges, this card urges you to face your inner demons. If you draw it again, be ready to explore your innermost self.
