Moon as Intentions Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

The Moon is the card of illusion, fear, anxiety, deception, intuition, and the subconscious. The card depicts a full moon in the night sky, positioned between two large towers. The moon is a symbol of intuition, dreams, and the unconscious. Compared to its counterpart the sun, the moon’s light is dim and only slightly illuminates the night. 

The Moon reminds us that every light has a shadow. Not everything in life is clear cut. Relationships will always have ambiguity to some extent. The Moon reminds us to tune into and listen to our intuition. Before our mind knows, we know. Especially when it comes to relationships, listen to your inner voice.  

Upright Moon as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Moon, that means this person has varying intentions. They may misunderstand you often and intend on following that misunderstanding. This causes complications in the relationship. The relationship is illusory. The relationship may harbor confusion for the both of you. They intend on following their intuition about you. This could be positive or negative intuition, and they intend on acting on it before their mind gets a chance to reason.

The Moon as intentions means that they intend on listening to their subconscious. The Upright Moon places importance on the subconscious mind. They intend on remembering past relationship hardships and applying them to you. They lack clarity in their conscience which may cloud their judgment. They intend on deciphering their subconscious intuition about you. If you draw the upright Moon card, you can expect to receive mixed signals from the person. It will take some time until there is clarity.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Moon is a sign of them intending to withhold some of the truth. They have little guidance through the light of the moon. This guidance complicates the relationship because they struggle with their intuition. They do not know exactly what they intend or want. This leads to them possibly telling lies and bending the truth. They do not yet intend to reveal their true self. Instead, they intend to act in a way that will draw you in so that they can experience your love.

For existing relationships, the Moon represents an intention to clear the fog in the relationship. There is obvious obscurity. The Moon signifies a fog that constantly lingers in the relationship. It must be cleared for intimate progress. Both of you intend to clear this fog. You may realize these intentions are the only thing clear in the relationship. They intend to act against this fog in order to reestablish passion and love between the two of you.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Moon shows that they have mixed intentions. They think both positively and negatively about your past relationship. They intend to work on themselves before reconnecting. The smartest intention in these circumstances is to give them space to heal. Once they figure themselves out and adjust based on the breakup, they may intend on getting back together.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Moon means that this person’s intentions are clouded and not distinct. Because of this clouded judgment, they do not yet intend on marrying you. They intend on fixing some misunderstandings you have had before commitment. They do not intend on breaking up as they still have love for you. Their intention is simply poorly guided by the dim light of the moon. They intend to clarify their intentions before full commitment.

Reversed Moon as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Moon reversed, that means this person intends on reevaluating their life. They have lost themselves in all areas of life. They lack even the slightest guidance of the Moon. They do not intend on entering a relationship. This is because they do not know what they want in life, so they intend on figuring it out. They need some element of closure, and they intend to search for it so they can stabilize themselves.

The Moon reversed as intentions means that they intend to deceive you. They do not feel comfortable being their authentic self in the relationship. They do not intend on sharing their true feelings. Your past actions may contribute to this intention but it is most likely linked to their own beliefs and insecurities. Focus your intentions on the truth if you draw the reversed Moon card. The relationship can survive if you establish honesty with your partner. They must be comfortable in order to intend on expressing their true selves.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Moon reversed is a sign of them intending to trick you or hide the truth. An example of this is catfishing in order to win attention. They intend on hiding the truth in order to gain something from you. The reversed Moon offers a warning for you to tread carefully in a new relationship. The relationship could still work out, but the intentions are not always positive.

For existing relationships, the Moon reversed represents an intention to doubt. They intend on hiding the truth about something in the relationship. This could be about a past event, or even something that will hurt your feelings if revealed. They care about you and do not want to hurt you. However, something doubtful exists in the relationship. You do not share trust, and they have intentions to doubt some of the things you may be serious about.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Moon reversed shows that they intend to stay away from the past relationship. It has damaged them, and they do not intend on revisiting it. Deception and untruth wreaked havoc on the relationship and left them lost. They intend on recovering and establishing a stable foundation of truth in their life. For this reason, getting back together is not an intention nor a priority in their mind.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Moon reversed means that this person’s intentions are thoroughly confused. Unlike the upright Moon, they have no guidance whatsoever on what they intend on in the relationship. They need guidance from you. They cannot describe or think about how they feel and if marriage is a possibility. They intend to rely on you to fix the untruth in the relationship and act to change the relationship for the good.

For relationships and feelings, the Moon reveals the darker side of lust and desire. In the shadows of a relationship, deception and misunderstandings lie. What is hiding underneath the surface? The Moon serves as a warning sign, urging us to identify and bring the issues out of the dark and into broad daylight. What hides in your own unconscious, affecting your ability to accept love? The Moon is also a sign to listen to your intuition. When your intuition tells you that something is not quite right, listen to it! Tune into your deepest self.
