I was just wondering how those of you who are religious in this way see the moon. What is your symbolism or symbology.
Here is my view;
A large part of paganism is symbolic and that really means that what you associate with something else is a symbol of that particular thing. Associations are a personal thing, some are just more common than others but religious ones are individual.
I can see how the sun could be a symbol for the goddess or the god, I can also see the same about the moon. The kicker is that personally I see the sun as part of god and the moon part of god but then again I see the earth as part of god and that tree over there as well . Everything is part of god, god is the higher powers, all of them combined into one. It is only aspects of this "god" that becomes gods and goddesses. Theses gods are either male or female depending on how you see them. The moon god is the same as the moon goddess, it is just how you see this particular god maybe you pull the male aspect out of this god and not the female.
Besides there is a theory that there is no "god" of the moon or sun. All I am saying is that maybe these beings/higher powers are not gods. Maybe they don't think of themselves as gods because they are closer to "god" (in terms of understanding) and it is only people that gave them that title. Maybe they don't want to be seen as a "god" but as just another being on the same level as all beings only with a different job to do.
Is the moon female?
