The Gifts of Moon: The deepest love, with complete selflessness and openness. An instinctive
and spiritual connection with Mother Nature and Goddesses. An awareness of the Sacred
rhythm to life, and the music within it. The ability to relinquish control, to surrender and
become the vessel for a Higher Source. The awareness of exactly what is needed in a
situation, and the instinct to fulfill it.

The lessons Moon has to learn: To bring to consciousness what is hidden to self. To sort out
one's own feelings from others. To live in the present, instead of the past or fantasy. To
witness self in present time, especially when agitated. To let go of others, and objects, when
it's time. To "teach others to fish" instead of fostering dependency.
