It’s a beautiful summer night. Sitting on the mountainside, overlooking the valley, a tremendous light grows brighter and brighter… it is the glorious Moon, rising in the starry sky. Many a bard has sung of her glory, many lovers have taken refuge in her gaze. We all carry a story of her greatness, and we all hold love for her in our soul.
Who is the Moon Goddess? She is called by many names, as many names as there have been peoples on this Great Earth. She is the Queen of Change, flying across the sky in a myriad of costumes throughout the year. She reigns over cycles and planting and especially, the Intuitive Knowing of Women. She lights our Night Sky and illuminates shadows. The Moon Goddess rolls the waves and shapes the shores of our lives with her Eternal Wisdom.
She is known for her Great Beauty, and is adored in her fullness… ripe and ready to bring forth new life. We have held her responsible for childbirth, fertility, and the victorious hunt. We call her the Lover of the Sun, ever reflecting the generosity of spirit. She is Goddess of Compassion as well as Death.
Her roles may be many, but she is ever faithful to her tasks. As the Native South American goddess, Yemanja, she is represented by the waxing moon, growing in size, Protector of Children and Motherhood. The Greek goddess, Selene, is represented by the full moon and is depicted as a woman riding sidesaddle pulling the Chariot of the Moon across the heavens. Cerridwen, the Crone Goddess, represented by the waning crescent moon, is known for her cauldron of wisdom.
Whatever guise she may be wearing tonight, she draws our gaze magnetically. She charges our dreams with Intuition and Wisdom, and she controls the flow of the waters of our lives. My new collection, Moon Goddess, pays homage to her diversity and her continuity. I chose labradorite and rainbow moonstone to capture the essence of her light in all of her phases.
