Welcome to Spirit's blog. The place where we find the beauty in the hidden, occult, mythologies of our world. Blessed be.

Hi all and welcome to Spirit's blog. Today I would like to study the moon. So according to astronomy, the moon is an astronomical body that orbits the earth, it is also the earth's only natural satellite. The circumference of the moon is 6,786 mi. The moon is also 238,900 mi. from the earth. The moon in astrology, is interpreted as a person's emotions.

The scientific community states that the moon just like the earth, has multiple levels, a core, a mantle and a crust. The core of the moon has two parts, a solid iron base, and a liquid iron base. Earth's moon is the second densest, natural satellite in the Solar System.

The moon controls the tides for Earth, it does this by being magnetically attracted to the Earth. As the earth rotates, the magnetic pull between the side of the Earth closest to the Moon, pulls the tide out.

Many centuries ago, civilizations practiced astrology. They had a genuine belief that the planets, or in this case a luminary, had an effect on human characteristics. The Polynesians from the Pacific Ocean, believed the moon was a goddess named Hina. Hina was one of the deities they believed helped create the world. The Persians believed that the moon was Metra, also known as Earth mother.

Not all civilizations believed the moon to be a positive being. The Aztecs from Mexico, held that the moon was, Mictecacuiatl. They believed that it would come in the night to consume humans. Maori people of New Zealand, called the moon "man eater". Some ancient Greeks, thought the moon was the home of the dead. The Hindus believed that the moon was a sort of purgatory, while a soul waited to be reincarnated.

In astrology the moon refers to emotions, home, family, mother and the heart of any matter. In all natal charts, the moon is part of the trilogy, the Sun, the Moon, and the Ascendant. This trinity basically tells the personality of a person. The colors silver and white are often representations of the moon. Cancer the zodiac sign, is ruled by the moon. The sign that the moon is in, tells the "flavor" of a person's inner feelings. It tells how they will react to stimuli, and the method in which a person deals with emotions.

In modern times, the moon is the subject of many idioms. "It must be a full moon", is one of the more popular ones. This particular saying is generally uttered when the conditions around them are frantic, uncontrollable, etc. When a person "asks for the moon", it means that someone, is making unreasonable demands. You can you are "over the moon", when extremely excited or happy. "Once in a blue moon", means that something occurs very seldom.

The Moon has been a subject of study, and interpretation for centuries. This may be in a physical manner, like astronomy. It could be viewed in a spiritual way, as the ancients considering it a deity. Still yet, the moon could play a key role in the soul development of people, such as in astrology. An lastly, it could simply be a household name or saying. However you believe, the moon has always been, and still is, a topic of much curiosity and exploration. So the next time you find yourself looking at the moon, know you are not the only one. Blessed be.
