The Moon Tarot Card: Upright, Reversed, & Love Meanings

The Moon Card Meaning

The Moon card in Tarot symbolizes that things might be amiss and that you can't trust your first impression. Things are not how they seem. The basic card symbols are a full moon (with a crescent within), twin pillars, a dog and a wolf howling, a stream that runs to the ocean, and a crayfish emerging from the water.

Upright Moon Card Meaning

When the Moon card is upright in a Tarot reading, it symbolizes deception, trickery, disillusionment, error, anxiety, danger, and double-dealing. The card means you may be going through a time of emotional or mental trials. Also pay attention to your dreams: What are they trying to tell you? Your subconscious is actively trying to get in touch. You also might be about to get your period!

Reversed Moon Card Meaning

When the Moon card is reversed in a Tarot reading, it symbolizes discovering deception before damage can be done, trifling mistakes, and taking advantage of someone. It's the releasing of negativity and the letting go of fears. Your problems will lighten and you'll emerge with newfound confidence and clarity.

The Moon Card Love Meaning

The Moon card in a Tarot love reading is one of insecurity. If you're single, try to keep your wits about you with your new love interest to make sure everything is on the up and up. If you're in a relationship, it might be time to examine if this is exactly what you want. Maybe you look like the perfect couple on the outside, but there's another story behind closed doors.
