The ancients believed that the Moon contained the souls of the unborn as they waited for life, and the dead were gathered up to it’s womb to wait for rebirth. It thus became an image for the ‘Great Mother’, from whom all life springs and to whom all life returns.
The Moon presides over all things connected with the feminine archetype, including the menstrual cycle which lasts for approximately twenty-eight days - the same time it takes for the Moon to complete its three phases.
Faith is the shadow of our higher self that remains here on earth to remind us of our purpose in the Universe. Faith is a reflection of what our higher consciousness knows to be true.
The Moon, through all of its phases, represents the world of illusions, dreams and the subconscious.
