The Death card and The Moon have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.

It’s time to let go of what is no longer serving your highest good, and trust in the wisdom of your intuition to move forward.

Instead, it’s time to focus on the path to long-term health and wellness. You may need to make voluntary changes to your lifestyle, diet, or activity levels in order to create a healthier life.

The Death tarot card and The Moon tarot card together could be a reminder that your health is on a journey of full of ups and downs, and it’s important to trust and embrace the ebbs and flows of the journey. When life gives you the opportunity to make big changes, accept it, and use it as a catalyst for positive changes in your life.

The meaning of the cards will depend on what kind of reading you are doing and the question you asked the deck. This is a guide covering the general meanings of the cards and how they relate to each other.

Common 2-card spreads

Whilst it’s great to know who these two cards interact with each other, it’s important to note that the meaning will depend on the context of your spread

The most common 2 card spreads I recommend to newer readers are:

  • The 2 card cross (otherwise known as “The Fool’s Journey”)
  • The 2 card “Yes or No”

“The Fool’s Journey”

Setup: The two card cross is where you place two cards face up, one placed vertically and with one laying horizontally over

Interpretation: The 2 cards represent a “situation” and a “challenge”. The first card will describe the situation you are in with the second horizontal card being the “challenge” crossing you (literally crossing you in this case!)

Reading: Using the overviews in this guide is a great way to start. First, look at the meanings of the 2 cards, and see how they might relate either as your “situation” or “challenge”. Once you have that you can look at the general overview for how the two cards interact with each other.

The benefit of this spread is that it can give clarity when you’re feeling uncertain or anxious. Once you have clarity of thought, and a strong idea of what your challenge is you can find solutions to help your situation

The 2 card “Yes or No”

Setup: The 2 card “Yes or No” is where you place two cards face up side by side, whilst asking your deck a “yes or no” question.

Interpretation: Each card in a tarot deck has a “yes” or a “no” meaning. Look at the meanings of each card, and you will have your answer.

The benefit of this is you get a stronger yes or no compared to a single card draw. You may find you often get a mix of “yes or no”, and this is fine. It simply means there is doubt, or things are not yet clear.

Yes or No meaning

Both Death and The Moon mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw Death and The Moon the answer to your question is “NO”.

The “Yes” and “No” meanings can differ from reader to reader. The meanings here are based on what I believe are the generally accepted definitions.

What does Death mean?

The Death Tarot card is often interpreted as an indication of endings, transitions, and big changes in all aspects of life. When it comes to health, the Death Tarot card speaks to a time of healing, cleansing, and recovery. It can indicate a need for physical and emotional detoxification and a time to let go of unhealthy patterns and habits. This is a time for a new beginning when it comes to health, and a clean slate for new ways of taking care of the body.

When it comes to finances, The Death Tarot card can indicate a time to cut ties with the past and start anew. It can be a time to let go of outdated or ineffective financial methods and start fresh. Money is a powerful force, and it’s important to take stock of any money problems and develop a new plan for the future. This is a time to assess the current financial situation and find creative ways to move forward.

The Death Tarot card also speaks to relationships. This card can indicate the end of a relationship, but also the beginning of a new chapter in life. When it comes to relationships, it’s important to recognize when something is coming to an end, and to allow yourself to grieve the loss before looking forward to the new possibilities that could come your way.

What does The Moon mean?

Health: The Moon Tarot card is a reminder to stay connected to your innermost feelings and trust your intuition. Unseen problems or issues may be lurking in the background, and it’s important to pay attention to and address potential health concerns. There could be unacknowledged uncertainties or worries that are affecting your well-being. It’s also a symbol of self-care and finding ways to bring balance and harmony to your life.

Finances: The Moon Tarot card is a reminder to be mindful of unseen financial issues. It’s important to take a proactive approach to making adjustments for any unseen changes in your financial situation. Voluntarily making changes can be a good way to avoid major problems. Also pay attention to your intuition and be mindful of any warning signs that something may not be right with your finances.

Relationships: The Moon Tarot card is a reminder to rust your intuition when it comes to relationships. Be aware of any underlying issues that you may not have addressed yet, and take the necessary steps to identify and address them. Make voluntary changes to help maintain balance and harmony in your relationships, and be mindful of any warning signs. Trusting your intuition can help you make decisions that will benefit your relationships.


Understanding how the meaning of a reading changes once you start involving more than one card can be tricky. This will come with time and practice, however I hope this guide on what your cards might be telling you when you draw Death and The Moon has helped you.
