The Moon has a strong connection to all of us with its gravitational pull and its mystical light beaming down on all of us each night. The Moon has been a source of mystery and power for spiritual beings since the beginning of time. The phases of the Moon can optimize your own personal energy, and depending on your needs, the Moon can work with you throughout the year to maximize your potential as the year progresses and you work toward your personal goals.
Earth’s Moon is over 4 billion years old. It’s composition includes silicate rock and its surface is visibly barren and serene. The rotation of the Moon is constant with the same revolution, with daylight constantly on one side and night at the other.
