Here is another version of the Earth and Moon, titled 'Moon Dream'.
Moon Dream by Amanda Clark 2011.
The meanings of moon dreams.
Dreams of the moon can symbolize romantic feelings and hopes, but also silvery reflections of intuitions, creativity, developmental stages of the self, fertility, the awakenings of the unconscious and alchemy or metamorphic changes. These dreams can sometimes be a transition of the feminine principle working through the cycle of the moon.
As intuition is information from the higher self, the all knowing. The moon in dreams can be telling us to listen more to our intuition or our souls guiding feelings.
The full moon can indicate a higher level of intuitional strength. A crescent moon can indicate the beginning of trust in yourself and the feelings of the heart, this starts to bring messages from the unconscious into the light.
Fertility and creativity are associated with the feminine. The full moon may have the meaning of potent creativity, and full fertility.
When dreaming, if the full moon is close or touching the earth, it can mean we are completely connected to our intuition, feelings and creativity. A small moon in the night sky, or further away from the earth, seems to mean have become distant from our emotions and intuition or creativity.
In folklore and myth, Luna was regarded as a giver of dew and moisture. A secret silver dew of life.
Luna and Mercurius sprinkled the dismembered dragon with her water and restores him back to life.
The Hare or Rabbit in the moon is called 'The Jade Rabbit' in chinese legends and myths. He was the maker of the elixir of immortality. The Aztecs also have legends of the hare in the moon, and various stories from the Americas. Read the link to discover the Aztec legend of the God Quetzalcoatl and the Native American legend about the hare/rabbit and the moon.
I wonder if there is any meaning with the moon being at it's closest in nearly 20 years and this year being the chinese year of the rabbit........umm, something to wonder while I'm creating new pieces of work.
