What does The Moon Tarot card mean?

Learn the meaning of The Moon Tarot card in under a minute!

The Moon Upright Meaning

The Moon card refers to a deep state of sensitivity and imaginative impressionability, developed within a womb of deep relaxation. Here we dream and go into trance, have visions and receive insights, wash in and out with the psychic tides, and experience deep mystical and/or terrifying realities beyond our ordinary senses. In a state of expanded consciousness, we cannot always control what happens. The Moon card represents the ultimate test of a soul's integrity, where the membrane between the self and the unknown is removed, and the drop of individuality re-enters the ocean of being. What transpires next is between a soul and its maker.

The Moon Reversed Meaning

The Moon card reversed suggests that you might be deluding yourself, exaggerating or embellishing your version of a situation. Consider whether you are repeating an emotional, dramatic rendition of events rather than keeping to the bare facts.

The temptation to let yourself be swept away emotionally or psychically is understandable, but it doesn't help you find your balanced center in chaotic times.

The Moon Advice Position

The Moon card advises that you trust your instincts and intuitions. Your intuitive body, which is connected to all living things, is sharper and quicker than the cultivated, civilized self. The everyday mind may not be prepared for strange oceanic circumstances. Plus, it has no game plan. Your intuitive body will support you unerringly if you do not interfere with or try to control what you perceive. A better approach would be to meditate. Try to just be a witness. Do nothing; let nature carry you forward. This may be your best option in this situation.

The Moon Love Position

With the Moon in this position, you are cast into your deepest unknown. Not to be seen as either bad or good, this is an opportunity to penetrate your inner life. You may be familiar with this experience or you may never have experienced it before in your life. You are moving between worlds, shifting and modifying. Reality changes from hour to hour. Your rational mind has deserted you, leaving instinct and intuition as your guides, especially in your forthcoming relationship. All the architecture of civilization has been stripped from your personality and you are naked unto yourself.

The Moon Career Position

When the Moon is in this position, the leadership in your corner of the work world may have collapsed and fallen in on itself. Nothing is as it seems. The people you deal with in your work may be suffering from delusions. Each claiming their myth is the one legitimate and absolute version. Battle lines are being drawn. It may be best to slink into the shadows and wait this situation out.

If you are compelled to navigate this landscape, stay in the light as much as you can while steering a middle course between extremes. Whatever could possibly happen is likely to happen. Stay alert and you can avoid getting pulled into any emotionally or politically draining vortexes.

The Moon in a Yes or No Card Reading

The Moon is a card of mystery. If you're looking for simple Yes or No guidance and receive The Moon, the answer is NO. Look for what's not so obvious before making your next move.
