She is everywhere in our cultures.
Luna is part of our past through our legends and mythologies.
She is with us in our present. Scientists will tell us that the moon has absolutely no effect on human behavior or psychology , yet many of us believe it does. Furthermore, she is a part of inner-most selves. Some in the psychological field see the moon as a symbol of the unconscious, the feminine principle in our psyches, and even representative of our “shadow” selves.
The moon, according to some, is even a part of our future. She is a part of prophecy.
It would seem that Mistress Moon serves as a conveyor of all that is human.
