Some cultures put particular emphasis on the moon's influence (in contrast with ours, which most definitely does not). The lunar calendar, whose timing and dates refer to the moon's cycles, and not the sun's, remains utterly foreign to the Westerner - this is a reflection of a fundamental difference in thinking and emphasis.
Man is the Sun: his cycles reflect the labor and the harvest, the migration of game, the heat of the day, and physical power.
Woman is the Moon: her cycles follow those of the Moon, the mistress of the night, of that which man finds mysterious, attractive, and terrifying. As darkness falls, she cares for and creates the family.
As the Western world lives and dies by the Sun, our civilization's structure is based on the work of Man, of power, of pumping turbines and burning diesel fumes. The clock, the calendar, the Sun regiment our lives.
But still the Moon rises and sets, waxes and wanes, and Women and Tides feel her pull, unrestrained by daily schedules, 'inconveniently' in-adherent, changing times and dates with the Solar structure.
The noise of the Sun is all around, in every day of work, in every 'product' and 'commodity'... shouldn't we take a moment to listen for the Moon?
