Mother Moon: Astrology of ‘The Lights’
by Michael Erlewine

447 pages, 304 color illustrations

In the tradition of astrology the Sun and Moon are called “The Lights,” and this Sun-Earth-Moon relationship is a topic seldom covered in much detail, much less in any real depth. Mother Moon not only covers both the exoteric nature of the Moon (what science and tradition knows about it), but also the esoteric significance, what the inner meaning of the Moon means to each of us astrologically. More than just theory, this book also provides hands-on interpretations for each of the 144 Sun-Moon combinations, including individual Astro*Image cards plus solunar phase, natal, and transit interpretations.

The Sun and Moon are examined in the astrology of the East as well as the West,

A very clear illustration of this idea is the fact that, in
most Eastern countries, birthdays are observed
according to the particular day of the moon cycle (lunar
phase angle) during which a person was born, rather
according to the solar return (birthday) as here in the
West. If we celebrate your birthday in Nepal, we
celebrate that phase of the moon (the lunar day, solunar

angle) you were born in. Moreover, due to the fact that
lunar months do not fit nicely within the solar year, a
birthday in the East for any given individual can be up to
a month away (during some years) from the solar return
-- our Western-style birthday.

This simple fact makes it clear how important the moon
and the lunar cycle are in these countries. A study of the
existing literature on the meaning and use of the moon
in astrology (East and West) shows much similarity but
also considerable difference.
