MOON worship

I have discovered that everything in the universe has a meaning and there is a reason for its existence. I  was gazing upon the full  moon the other day ,admiring its beauty. I have always been attracted to the moon and one day I stumbled upon a book at the library and  I discovered the following.

According to the book of  Astrology and  your destiny by Richard Craze, Staci Mendoza and David Borne; the moon is mysterious and known by many and is worshipped by many cultures throughout the world. Due to the moon’s ever changing cycle the moon was seen as immortal and as the place to which souls departed at death ( creepy right?).  We all know the scientific facts about the moon  but I will share with you all of the legends that are associated with the moon.  Below you will see the god and goddess worshiped by many cultures throughout the world .

  • The Mayans moons goddess Ixchel , the bringer of floods and storms and she is also known as the protector of women in childbirth.

  • In Sumerian mythology  the principal moon god is Sin and also known as Nanna is associated with the new moon and the responsible for  the fertility  of the land , for food production and the protection of herds.

  • In American mythology , the spider has universal links to the moon with links with the moon is the weaver of webs creation , producing the physical world and nurturing life.

 

To me the moon is the personification of female  wisdom, the wisdom of intuitive knowledge and deep instincts. She cannot be tamed by rational thought, she is a free spirit, full of beauty and mystery.
