The Moon is the closest heavenly body to the Earth. It has always been associated with magic and mysteries, especially the female mysteries. Since the beginning of time the Moon has been worshiped as the Mother-Goddess, the central, most important female Goddess, who bestows the power of fertility and reigns over birth, death and regeneration.
Astrologically, the Moon signifies the soul, or anima, our feelings, impulses and responses to the world around. The Moon governs the imagination, the key to magic and manifestation. She also rules mother and mothering-impulses, genesis and female creativity, instinct and intuition. She represents the emotional life of the human psyche.
Star Child Planetary Candles are potentised with our Lunar prepared Magical Infusions, which contain herbs collected from the respective parts of the Glastonbury Zodiac. The collections are made in accordance with the solar and lunar cycles at the appropriate times of the year. The symbols assigned to each type of oil indicate the ethereal nature of the special infusions added to the respective blends and thus provide a reference to their Magical qualities.
