As a mirror that reflects the light of the sun, the moon may also represent the shadow  side of the sun’s light. The Moon reflects the mystery and fear within our  souls. It reflects to us all that we cannot see inside ourselves because we  cannot look directly at the brilliant sun. We look to the moon to see our face,  just as we look into the mirror to see ourselves because we can never directly  look at our own face. The mirror of the moon illuminates both the darkness of  the night, our shadow part, and the blue day sky, our conscious selves.
