18 The Moon Tarot Meanings – upright and reversed – Major Arcana

Moon tarot card meanings upright and reversed

18 – The Moon Tarot Card Meanings – Upright



The Moon tarot card is all about illusions and masks. There is something going on behind the scenes when this card appears. This can create confusion. For example a person can pretend to be someone else or wearing masks in a way that they behave different from who they are. It is important to listen to your intuition and pay attention to your dreams.

The Moon tarot card also represents fears, anxiety and illusions. In a reading I saw the Moon tarot card together with the Sun card representing a manic-depressive person.

The Moon tarot card is a very emotional card so it is important to don’t rush things and don’t make assumptions.

The number 18 can be reduced to 1 + 8 = number 9. The number 9 is about advancing consciousness, isolation and inner wisdom. When the number 9 appears it is the penultimate stadium of a period in your life. It is time to recover from the past and to forgive so you can move on.                                           Read more about tarot & numerology.

18 – The Moon Tarot Card Meanings – Reversed


When reversed the Moon tarot card is still about illusions, anxiety and confusion. Now it is reversed, things are coming to the surface.

When the Moon tarot card shows up reversed, the situation can be very confusing. It is best to don’t do anything by yourself at the moment but you can ask for help.

  • unmasking someone or yourself
  • a confession
  • accepting that something isn’t true
  • revealing something that was hidden
  • realizing that you kept yourself illusions
