The moon symbolizes the inner being and the psyche. Next to the sun, it is the most important planet.

For some scientists it is quite strictly questionable whether the moon is also a planet by definition. If we would drive 9 x around the earth by car or ship, we have covered the distance to the moon. It is 81 x lighter than the earth, which leads to the fact that also the gravity is clearly weaker. As a result, we can jump 6 x higher on the Moon and also move 6 x slower than on Earth.

The “moonlight” that we humans like so much is created by the reflection of sunlight. The moon itself has no light of its own. The lunar eclipse is described as a special event.

Annually, the moon moves away from the earth by a few centimeters due to the strong forces acting between it and the earth. These are the same forces whose attraction causes the tides to ebb and flow.
