Fig 6.7 – Goddess Luna

Text: Page 217

Luna is the divine Roman goddess of the moon. She is one of the Roman gods that can be seen, distinguished from the unseen gods Neptune and Hercules. She brings light from the darkness. Luna is often viewed as driving a chariot called a biga, a two-horse chariot, with one white and brown horse, toward the sun god, Sol. As Luna traveled on her chariot from night to daytime toward the sun god, Sol, the brown horse keeps her seen and present in the moon throughout the day.

The symbol of Luna speaks to a different experience of lunacy because out of the darkness of “lunacy” she brings light and reminds us that the moon symbolically fades every day from night into daytime, from darkness to light, from illness to health.
