The Meaning Of The Moon Tarot Card In A Love Reading

Is The Moon A Good Card To Get In A Question About Your Love Life?

The first thing I want to mention about the Moon tarot card is that when it comes to love it often signifies love between people and animals. Some people believe animals are unable to feel love. This is ignorant. Animals have an enormous ability to feel love, often purer and deeper than people. In a question about love between people the Moon symbolises relationships where people are looking to mend their broken hearts.

The Moon symbolises love that is blind. There is no denying that there is a dark side to the Moon tarot card. It speaks of the need people have for an exciting romance. What you need and what you want might be two different things; leading you towards danger and regrets. You might be chasing after something which will get you into trouble.

The Moon also speaks of secret love, or someone offering you love you can not have. Forbidden love might be the most painful of experiences, and the Moon asks you to avoid such darkness.

There is an imbalance of power seen in the Moon tarot card that often stems from the need to be dominated by someone. There is a fear of being bored, thus, a wish for dangerous/forbidden love arise. You might find that you are attracting a love interest who are unable to be fair and honest, OR you are the one that is secretive. One of you might be promising more than you can deliver; leaving the other one waiting. 

The Moon in a love reading can denote that the seeker is in love with a fictional character either derived from their own mind or from characters seen in movies, books etc. The Moon shows up in a tarot reading when you need to discern between what is real and what is fantasy. True love is right there in front of you, but unless you pay attention you might miss it.

In relationships, the Moon tarot card denotes a period when the seeker is in love with love, an idea or a person who is not quite what they seem. There is plenty of things to be excited about if the seeker is willing to use logic and reason. You might have to get to know your partner all over again. On a more negative note; your partner might not be very easy to get to know, and you might be at a crossroad in your relationship.

Moon Tarot Card Love Meaning Summary

The Moon speak of love between animals and people. It speaks of love that is both pure and blind. In a question about love between people, it can signify you are in love with a fantasy and that this fantasy keeps you in a state of waiting. You might be in love with love, and you are waiting for your partner to become what you are dreaming of. If you are single and looking for love the Moon tarot card can be a warning that you are craving an adventure that can lead to dangerous love. The Moon asks you to be honest with yourself: What do you want vs what do you need? What you want can lead you on a path of heartbreak while what you need will be the light out of darkness. Romance is always available when the Moon is showing up in your tarot cards. The question is: Are you paying attention to those around you or are you too wrapped up in fantasy. Are you wanting what you cannot have?

    Not at all, the Moon can indicate romance. The Moon also speaks of love for the creative world, and also love for animals. It could mean you will experience new things you didn’t know was available to you in the next 3 months period…

    Hi, i am new to tarot reading and not sure if i’ve followed the steps correctly.. i did a half moon spread and picked 3 cards when i asked about my reconcilliation and possible happy ending with my ex boyfriend in the future.

    i got the chariot (past), two of swords (present) and the moon (future).. can you help to explain? thanks so much!

    Hi, Judith. The Moon can mean that you will feel a bit in the dark about where you stand with your ex. Things are not clear. I feel like you will need to talk openly and whole-heartedly as there are a lot of unsaid and unspoken feelings that have not yet been dealt with.

    Thanks so much for replying Inger!

    To be honest, i caught him dating a new girl few months later even though he promised he wouldn’t date anyone and hoped to remain single when we broke up. He continued to claim that there isn’t deep feeling for this woman.

    I am still pinning hope of reconcilliation despite feeling some sort of betrayal after so many months.

    With the card combination above, would you mind explaining the entire story of how these had evolved to this stage and does it say there is possibility of reconcilliation and happy ending?

    Also asking for a friend who wants to reconcile with her ex bf. She did a reverse version: reversed knight of sword (past), upright three of cups (present) and the world (future). She is also asking if there is happiness seen in the future between them
