7 Moon Myths and Old Beliefs

 

full-moon

When I was a little girl, the moon was a mystical, magical place. It was something we gazed at and dreamed dreams of going there and beyond, particularly when the moon was full, with just a hint of cloud cover.

Yeah, I’m that old.

I can remember watching the first moon landing. And possibly still secretly hoping for some moon people to pop up and say, “howdy.”

Sigh.

When I look back I have to smile a little at that innocent girl. So I thought it might be fun to share some wacky notions about the moon that people used to have (or possibly still have):

  1. The moon is made of cheese. (Okay, no one really believed it, but there were a LOT of cartoons featuring a cheesy moon.)
  2. We never really went to the moon.
  3. Moon inhabitants live on the dark side of the moon. That’s why we can’t see them. (Because they would choose to live on the dark side.)
  4. The moon is hollow and/or a spacecraft.
  5. The moon controls fertility.
  6. The full moon brings out the werewolf. (Actually some people still believe this…)
  7. Full moons make you crazy. (If that is true, then you should approach this blog tour with care. Unless you WANT to be crazy, in which case you should just dive in and feel the crazy full moon love.)
  8. In Specters in the Storm, my novella in the Edge of Never boxed set, the sight of the moon, it’s light brings hope after a long, very challenging night.

There are some other good reasons to take the tour, other than the intriguing possibility of catching moon madness, I mean. And here they are:
