Now have a deeper look into the interpretation of The Moon Tarot card:
In the upright position
When The Moon is read upright, it means you have been influencing by your imagination and emotions. Put it simply, fears, anxieties, and weaknesses are taking control of your life.
This card shows up in your Tarot spread as a warning sign. If you keep ignoring all of your worries, you will drown in the sea once they are built up and exploded. If you want to release yourself from all the negative strings, then listen to your intuition and directly confront the truths you’ve avoided in the past.
The very first thing to do is to face the reality of your current situation.
Mentioned earlier, The Moon in the upright position also indicates your illusions. Maybe this card is hinting about some hidden truths that you have to discover to bring positive changes to your life. Don’t quickly trust things when you just know the surface, the presence of The Moon warns you to be cautious and dig deeper before making any decision.
Open up your mind and let the moonlight shine through all aspects of your life.
In the reserved position
When The Moon is read reversed in a reading, it signifies the freedom that you can achieve from overcoming your fears. If you are struggling with stresses, misunderstandings, or depression, this is the perfect time to put an end to those issues.
The reversed moon ensures to bring you a brighter future and free you from what is binding you.
Don’t hesitate anymore! This card is the best indicator telling you that now is the time to be brave and face all of your weaknesses. In the reversed position, the meaning of The Moon will shed light and clarity into the issue you’re looking for assistance. It comes with the guidance leading you towards the right path.
Some self-help options to remove negative energy from your life are exercise and meditation.
The Moon Yes or No Meaning
When you see The Moon in a yes or no Tarot reading, its answer for your question is ‘NO’. As a card of mystery and illusion, many readers find reading The Moon is challenging because the interpretation can cause Querents confused.
This means there will be a lack of information when reading your situation; also, the circumstance in the future may be completely opposite to what you believe to be true. The Moon card represents a certain level of risk, secrets, and even deception related to your life on a daily basis.
No matter what you are pursuing in life, you should be careful and take everything with extremely caution.
In case you are feeling paranoid, anxious, and worried, the card will give you the response that the moon’s water will heal all the wounds and bring peace into your mind. If you are taking on your path with a righteously bold manner, the presence of The Moon means you should soften a bit and tune into the mysteries of the unknown.
In general, you need to prepare for a different outcome from what you’ve expected.
Rather than allowing fears to control you, please listen to your intuition and clear away the gloomy clouds above your head.
The Bottom Line
You shouldn’t be afraid if The Moon appears in your reading.
This is actually an emotional, beautifully feminine card. Just like the moon shines through the darkness, all of your fears and insecurities will be unveiled in the quiet of the night. The moon has many phases and each usually takes turn in every month – this is like your emotions which constantly change depending on different situations.
You’ve known about the messages of this card in a reading; thus, do not allow yourself to be swept away by the negative energy. Take a moment and listen to the inner voice from your mind. The confusing meaning from The Moon can help you realize ideas you may not yet be aware of.
I advise you to meditate at least once per day to stop yourself from being disturbed by anxiety, illusion, or any concept of negativity.
Couple your thoughts with practical action and somehow what you imagine in mind will bring success to your life. There may be conflicts on the way but if you face them on directly, the outcome will be good.

What about yes or no inverted moon?
When you see the Moon in a yes or no reading, the answer to your question is no. The moon is a confusing card. This means there is a certain level of risk, a lack of information, or the presence of some deception in your situation. The presence of this card should serve as a warning that you should proceed with extreme caution in whatever you do.
Christopher Ellis says
I asked if I should break up with my current partner yes or no due to my trust issues. And the moon came up.
The Moon indicates emotional confusion, but is actually better in reverse, so whatever was confusing to you about the other person may be clearer now. But the Moon also can mean hidden emotional issues. Remember, one side of the Moon can’t be seen all the time!
The Moon doesn’t mean that a breakup is on the horizon. But it does mean it is time to transform how you live your life and how you bond with your partner. You can talk with your partner or consult an advisor. Do something. And do it now.
I asked my tarot deck if I should report a professor that made me feel uncomfortable in a work environment by calling me attractive and inviting me over to his house. I’ve been feeling fear in doing so because of repercussions, so I asked for guidance, and I pulled Moon reverse along with Queen of Pentacles reversed. I’m confused because it says to face and conquer my fears, yet the moon reversed also means no. So, what? What do I do? Let this experience go? Not take action? Is Spirit telling me that I’m wrong in wanting to stand up for myself?
I was taught that The Moon means “seeing things by a false light” — in other words, confused or mistaken perception, awareness distorted by your own prejudices or assumptions, or being taken in by deliberate trickery.
Reversed, it means emerging from this state into more clarity.
What position(s) does the Queen of Pentacles show up in? I’m thinking a mature Pentacles Court Card reversed symbolises a hoarder, or someone who holds onto something (the past, even) too tightly and prevents it from growing and developing (sort of the opposite of a non-reversed Queen).
I pulled three cards asking if the divorce will end up going through. (I don’t want a divorce, he does and is going to file when the paperwork is ready). All three cards were reversed. The moon, the fool, king of pentacles. I seem to remember learning reversed cards are a no, but it has been years since I used the cards. I also asked my pendulum and consistently get a definite no. What do you think? Thank you.
From these 3 reversed cards, you are encountering an incomplete side of yourself that being caught in the shadow of ignorance or immaturity. An emotional reflex or psychological attitude can prevent you from reacting honestly and naturally. Let’s free yourself from any dogma or limitation so that your natural honesty and instinct to behave in the right way can be regenerated.
You have failed to reach the level of security, comfort and stability you wanted from your relationship and this may be causing problems between you and your partner. Jealously, possessiveness, manipulation and controlling behavior may all be issues in the relationship.
