Since the dawn of humanity, the Moon has shone in the night sky, progressing through its never-ending cycle of waxing and waning, causing people to gaze up and wonder what it meant.
Unsurprisingly, the Moon has featured in the stories and mythology of people down the ages.
One of the most commonly recurring symbolism the Moon has had around the world is that of femininity and female energy – and in most cultures, the Sun is the opposite, representing masculinity and male energy.
In Greek mythology, the Moon was associated with Artemis, the goddess of hunting, virginity and childbirth – and the Roman equivalent, Diana, was the goddess of woodland and women. Hecate, the goddess of cycles, birth and intuition was also connected with the Moon.
In Christian symbolism, the Virgin Mary was seen as having a connection with the Moon and is often seen depicted as standing on a representation of the Moon.
Similarly, in ancient Chinese belief, a goddess named Kuan Yin who watched over pregnant women and protected them during childbirth was also connected to the Moon.
Since the Moon constantly goes through a cycle that includes the new moon, the waxing moon, the full moon the waning moon and then the new moon again, it has also come to symbolize the cyclical nature of the universe.
The cycle of birth, aging, death and rebirth is repeated countless times in nature, and the Moon’s phases are the perfect metaphor for this.
As well as affecting processes such as the tides, it has long been believed that the Moon affects human emotions and moods, and some people can become more active, irritated or emotional around the time of the full moon.
Since the Moon forms a pair with the Sun, it symbolizes balance.
The Moon and the Sun exist together and represent the dichotomy between dark and light, male and female, conscious and unconscious, ignorance and knowledge, naivety and wisdom and, of course, yin and yang.
