What does the Moon symbolize?

Alongside the Sun, the Moon watches over the skies and is seen by many to represent ‘feminine light’; as opposed to the ‘masculine light’ of her solar counterpart. She is Selene in Mesopotamia, Artemis and Hecate in Greece, Diana among the Romans, and Isis in Egypt. She is the mother goddess and a symbol of fertility and maternity.
