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.

The Moon is a celestial body that is incredibly indispensable to astrology. Arguably as essential as the Sun or the Ascendant, the Moon symbolizes everything that is feminine. In a man, the Moon has the ability to evoke emotion and sensitivity, as well as love for the women in his life.
