Moons are celestial globes who do not have their own orbit, but who circle around a planet. The symbolic meaning of the Moon is receptivity, reaction and reflection. The Moon acts as a mirror reflecting the light from the Sun and a mirror is just glass with a thin layer of silver. The Moon has monthly phases, lasting approximately 29.5 days, waxing to Full Moon and waning to New Moon, and her magnetic fields influence the rhythms of the tides. The Moon is further associated with femininity, motherliness, cycles and changeable emotions.
