According to Many Schools of Thought

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The Moon. Some eighteenth-century cards shew the luminary on its waning side; in the debased edition of Etteilla, it is the moon at night in her plenitude, set in a heaven of stars; of recent years the moon is shewn on the side of her increase. In nearly all presentations she is shining brightly and shedding the moisture of fertilizing dew in great drops. Beneath there are two towers, between which a path winds to the verge of the horizon. Two dogs, or alternatively a wolf and dog, are baying at the moon, and in the foreground there is water, through which a crayfish moves towards the land.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers's Divinatory Meanings

Upright

Twilight, Deception, Error

Reversed

Fluctuation, slight Deceptions, Trifling Mistakes.

Papus's Divinatory Meanings

Hidden Enemies. Danger.
