The Moon is fraught with symbolism. It represents the feminine in our celestial skies, a natural balance to the masculinity of the Sun.
The fact that the predictability of its cycle is in direct alignment with the feminine rhythm and fertility has been noted in historical documentation for millennia. Moon imagery is associated with beginnings, growth, clarity, and release. It also represents the shadow or darkness in nature.
The moon is luminous yet produces no light of its own; it is a reflection of the sun’s blazing rays and we might do well to wonder if we are the moon and everyone else is the sun, what exactly are we reflecting? The moon also possesses an energetic pull on its water soul mate, subtle yet powerful in it’s influence. Passively it pulls the tides in and out on a daily basis. Human beings are made up of over 70% water. You could argue that the moon has the same influence on our bodies.
