The Moon’s main meaning is deception. You could be being fooled by others. Alternatively, you may be expecting the worst from your friends, family, and lovers when, in reality, they are devoted. Surrounding cards can give you clues if The Moon is trying to offer you reassurance or a red flag.
The Moon makes a frequent appearance during affairs because it often represents mistakes. It can symbolize your partner's secrets, or you may be harboring a few secrets of your own. If you are, then your secret is safe, for now.
The Moon can also represent hidden enemies; perhaps those in your social circle do not always want what is best for you. Alternatively, you could be the one be fooling them. The Moon can be a warning to stay away from gossip and negativity for the time being.
With all of that being said, continue down the path you are on when The Moon comes up in a reading. Sometimes, you genuinely have to know the truth, and the only way to do this is to keep going. All may not be as bad as it seems; your insecurities are all that is holding you back. The truth is also much better discovered then wondering 'what if' for the rest of your life.
The Moon Love & Relationship Tarot Meaning
The Moon can go several ways in a love reading; this is especially true if you're trying to discover where the relationship is heading.
First and foremost, I think that The Moon is one of those cards which doesn't want to reveal the future. In this way, the Moon is very much like The High Priestess; it knows the answer but isn't telling you. The card advises you to continue on the path you have been, and the future will reveal itself in its own time. All that you can do for now is go with the flow and expect the unexpected.
The difference with The Moon is that the future is usually not as it seems. With The High Priestess, you can use your intuition to work out your partner's intentions towards the relationship. By contrast, because The Moon is associated with self-deception; it can predict that everything will turn out the opposite of what you expect.
A more negative face of The Moon is that it is an infidelity card, so if you're reading on this specific matter, getting The Moon is not a welcomed omen.
If you would like to know your potential partner's feelings, The Moon can mean that they don't yet know how they feel towards you. This is also true in readings which are about reconciliation - your ex is unsure of their next move, so does not yet know if they want to come back to you or not.
The Moon Business & Career Tarot Meaning
The Moon is not benevolent for business and career orientated readings. I would say that it predicts the presence of business associates who want to see you fail.
The Moon is warning you not to share your business plans with other people. Keep yourself to yourself. Remember that, although you may think others in your industry are your friends, they're still competing. They could be contacting you only to get information from you and see what you're up to. Play your cards close to your chest.
The Moon is also a card which warns you that you do not know all of the facts. There are things about running a company which you have not accounted for, and this can harm your bank balance and your business.
When The Moon appears in an outcome position, the future of your company or job is uncertain. That's not to say that there is a failure in your future, but there's no guarantee that it will do well. Therefore, if the other Tarot cards offer advice, be sure to take it.
The Moon Friends, Family & Social Media Tarot Meaning
There are things which your friends, family, and peers are not telling you. Those around you have many secrets which they would like to remain hidden. They are not doing this for any reason other than they do not wish to hurt your feelings. If a peer has betrayed you, they know that what they have done makes them look like a terrible person.
When reading social influence, I sometimes take The Sun and The Moon to represent time zones. Therefore, if you're trying to grow your social media following, I recommend that you post to your Instagram or Facebook during your nighttime. Late night posting will yield you the best results, especially if you're in an industry which may be classed as unusual.
The Moon Health & Wellbeing Tarot Meaning
The Moon is symbolic of cycles, the ocean, and hormones. If you find you're having mood swings and are unsure why your hormones could be to blame.
Also, do not discount the influence of the Moon and the planets on your mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Following the retrogrades and planetary movements can help you to control your feelings better and plan for the future.
Finally, with regards to your health, you do not know all of the facts. These will reveal themselves in their own time. There are some things which you are not meant to know for whatever reason. As a positive, however, everything is usually not as wrong as it seems when The Moon appears in a Tarot card reading.
The Moon Psychic & Spirituality Tarot Meaning
People who have a particular talent for astrology will see The Moon a lot in their Tarot readings. You are deeply drawn to The Moon and view it as one of your favorite Tarot cards.
When The Moon appears in the future or outcome position of your psychic and spiritual Tarot readings, it is a sign that you need find out more about Astrology, with a focus on the Moon and other planets. The Moon and the planets are where your gifts lie.
The Moon as a Positive, Strength or Advantage
The Moon will appear as a strength if you have good intuition. It is also possible that your suspicions of others serve you well as they prevent you from getting hurt; you're not likely to fall for other people's bull shit if The Moon appears as a 'positive' in a spread.
In addition to the above points, The Moon will appear as positive when all is not as bad as it seems. You may be thinking negatively and expecting the worst because of bad experiences, but that does not mean that the past is going to repeat itself.
The Moon as a Negative, Weakness or Obstacle
The Moon will appear as a negative in a Tarot spread when there are many things which you do not know about. The truth of a situation is being hidden from you; this means that you cannot make decisions based on facts.
The Moon can also pop up as an obstacle or weakness if you're a negative thinker. Instead of enjoying something for what it is, you're always looking for what is under the surface. Either way, stop trying to predict what you cannot change and enjoy the present.
The Moon Yes or No Meaning
As a yes or no, The Moon is one of those cards which you are not meant to know the answer to (like Judgement or The High Priestess). However, I have found that the card often predicts the opposite of what you expect, so if you're looking for a terrible outcome, things won't turn out as bad as they seem.
