The Moon

 

MOON – TIMEKEEPER, GUIDANCE & INFLUENCE

The Moon is a marker of time and a feminine power or influence over nature.  The Moon has the ability to change our moods and thoughts and controls the tides which affect our food cycle.  Full moons are credited with providing direction, vision and guidance.

The Moon is identified in Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations art as a circle with a human face in the center, and often depicted with short rays around the edge.
