Mythology behind the Moon
Often associated with femininity, the Moon is symbolic of many things. In popular culture, the Moon is associated with emotions and it is believed that Full Moons have a strong effect over us, inspiring the folklore behind werewolves. In Roman Mythology, the Moon was represented by Luna, Goddess of the Moon (and others). In Greek Mythology, Artemis was not only Goddess of Hunt, but also Goddess of the Moon. In many ancient cultures, the Moon has always been female and was representative of fertilization, emotions and the Mother or other female figures.

The Moon in Astrology
No one knows you better than you know yourself. People see your Sun sign, but know nothing of your Moon sign. The Moon is the deepest part of us and is ruler of our emotions, our “deeper” personality, our soul. It is an extremely important luminary in our charts. How we feel, approach and react to things is determined by our Moon sign. What we need in order to feel secure is usually determined by the Moon sign as well. We all feel things differently, we take things in differently and react to them differently too. All of which is determined by your Moon sign. So how do we express our Moon sign?

On her previous performance on Immortal Song, Luna got a letter from a deaf person who wrote he couldn’t hear her voice, but he felt the emotion she put in the song and said he became a fan. Luna was so touched that for her next performance, she learned sign language so the fan would be able to understand. She is such an angel <3
