Number 18, The Moon card.

The Moon card shows us a pathway in between two different sides. A dark and feral side on the right, and a peaceful, tranquil side on the left. The hound on the left wears the necklace of Berkano. A rune that means Rebirth, Sanctuary, Healing and Safety. On the right, the feral hound is wearing the necklace of Nauthiz. This rune represents Life Lessons, Restraint, Obstacles, Needs and Limitations.
The Moon card is full of illusion, it suggests that things may not be as they appear. In the dark, things may seem distorted and unclear.
We must walk down this pathway, trying to navigate our way through the shadows. The moonlight can bring us clarity and help us understand that what we don't, but you must tread carefully. Let your instincts and intuition guide you.
This card can also tell us that there is a hidden truth that needs to be discovered. What you see may be a trick of the light, so look cautiously.

Reverse:

Upright:

Mysteries unveiled, Anxiety, Misunderstanding, Clarity, Release of fear, Strange dreams

Card in Reverse:

The Moon card in reverse is like the dark side of The Moon. It can sometimes tell us that there are negative forces present in your life. It can represent uncertainty, confusion and unfulfillment. You want to take steps in the right direction, but you don't know how. What is the right thing to do? What will benefit you the most?
Breathe in confidence and believe in yourself. You've got what it takes to move forward.
Another reverse meaning The Moon card can show us is that something that once confused you is now starting to come into the light. You're able to control your anxieties and rest your fears easier now. Negative energies that were once present are fading away.

Upright: The Moon card shows us that things may be a bit complicated at this time in your romantic life. Things are not as they appear. Try to take a moment and look at the true intentions of your partner/friend/the person you're dating. What is their goal, or lack there of? And what are you intentions? What is it you truly want?
There may also be some unfinished business lying deep inside you. Sometimes our unconscious can affect us in ways we would never expect. Are there any patterns in your life that are preventing you from having love? Have you lost your faith in love? Do you feel unworthy? Is there something from your past that is haunting you?
Light a candle to help guide your way through this darkness. Sit in meditation and try looking back on your life in a third person's perspective. Journal about what you find, examine them closely and uncover the truth.

Reversed: The Moon card reversed in love can suggest confusion and even deception. Things may not be clear at this time, and you'll have to trust yourself to guide your way through the darkness to uncover the truth. Is your loved one behaving in a way that you don't like?
Deception doesn't always have to be birthed with negative and hurtful intentions. Sometimes we can hurt others while having the best of intentions. They do say, "The pathway to Hell is paved with good intentions."
Approach everything cautiously and with an open mind. No need to be hostile. Uncover the truth, then follow your intuition.

Upright: Things may be looking a little uncertain right now. You could be struggling with your goals in regards to work and/or finances. There may be some tension in the work place right now for you. It's easy to misunderstand others at work, so be sure to express yourself clearly. Try to keep your eyes open for the facts, things will reveal themselves eventually.

Reversed: In reverse, on one hand, things can start to look clearer for you. Answers start appearing and you feel more confident in the world place/in your finances.
Then on the other hand, it can also indicate deception and sabotage. There may be some negative forces present at work, bringing your worst nightmares to life. Now is the time to search for the rot and cut it out.
