More Information About Goddesses

More About the Symbol of the Moon
Throughout many traditions the sun represents the father and male principle and the moon the mother and feminine principle. The energy of the moon is intuitive, deep, subtle, feminine and psychic. To say this is a feminine energy does not mean to say this energy is just for women. Men and women have their female and male aspects. We all develop them both. 

The moon is also associated with clairvoyance and knowing without thinking. To use the energy of the moon does not involve conscious thought. So to wear or have around you the symbol of the moon is to state your universal intention to use your intuition, to simply go with what you feel and to know that to do this is for your greater good. 

The moon has different phases and throughout these phases it affects us in different ways. For example the full moon represents illumination, unconscious made conscious and all can be seen. The crescent moon symbolises new beginnings and the making of dreams into reality. Because of this cyclic nature the moon it is also connected to rebirth and how our true essence really is immortal.

    Entrancing

    Posted by Louise, Oxon on 9th Feb 2005

    A young woman, with dark hair, gazes intently at you with aspects of the Moon behind her and the background, Stonehenge in the foreground.  The title, 'Moon Goddess', is bright against the night black cover. The first track, 'Eyes of Heaven', was light and airy, a contrast to the moody cover. The sound of drums and wood instruments were reminiscent of Peru. I could imagine a steam train, snaking its way up the steep mountains of that land, with the Moon a shining crescent setting in a brilliant blue sky.  'Full Moon Magic', the second track, features the piano, it had oriental overtones.  It made me think of a beautiful Japanese garden and a kimono'd lady dreaming of her loved one, under the soft gentle gaze of the Moon.  Wood instruments again on the next of track of 'Banquet in the Woods'.  It's a simply arranged tune of few notes which repeat, but the artist, Medwyn Goodall, introduces an electric guitar, played effectively and with a delicate touch. This was such a lovely track; it inspired me to send out love and healing every time I heard it.  I would find myself humming it whilst out shopping or whilst in the office.  As for the Moon, well, I could see in my mind's eye a feast in ancient times, with dancers happily weaving in and out, the moonlight showing the way. 'Drawing down the Moon' continues with the same instruments, again the notes repeat but this time the effect lulls you, relaxing you perhaps ready to draw down the Moon's silver light into yourself.  The penultimate track, 'Deepest Secrets' was wistful, I thought of the times when there is no Moon and we become introspective.  Lastly, 'Moonlight Whispers' features drums, violins and what I think is a harp, the notes of which sound like drops of moonlight gently falling.

    This album illustrates the Moon beautifully; the instruments are thoughtfully chosen to creative evocative atmospheres and are played by the artist skilfully and sensitively.  I have to admit I didn't feel it represented the Moon Goddess in her roles of Maiden, Mother and Crone, but I didn't mind at all, I enjoyed listening to this entrancing album and I was always left wanting more.
