The moon takes approximately 28 days to go around the earth, so it is closely related to female cycles and motherhood. It is no coincidence that, in many mythologies, it is related to feminine power, represented through various deities. Selene, in the Greco-Roman tradition that precedes us, gave rise to Artemis in Greece and Diana in Rome. In any case, both represent the Mother Goddess, the queen of heaven.

In addition, its influence is responsible for the tides and the increase in the length of the day. Apart from this special connection with the feminine world, historically, the influence of the moon on human beings in general has always been believed. In the 16th century the term lunatic was coined to describe a type of madness that was related to the phases of this satellite and, in many Buddhist monasteries, they take a vow of silence during the new moon, the full moon and eclipses. They consider that these phases magnify our emotions and, therefore, we are more prone to act impulsively and emotionally, and may attract bad karma.

As little witches that we are, for us the moon has a very important role. According to "The Spiral Dance" (Starhawk), one of the most relevant texts on the history of witchcraft and its role in the modern age, the first witches were those who worshiped the earth and lived governed by lunar cycles. The Triple Goddess is an important witchcraft symbol representing the three phases of the moon: waxing, full, and waning. This symbol represents the three aspects of the woman: the girl, the woman and the wise old woman and is associated with divine femininity.
