What is the
meaning of the symbol moon and stars?
We know that the
moon can represent the emotions and the feminine side of things, and the sun
with its more masculine symbolism can represent work and a sense of satisfaction
which comes from work. Any insights beyond that?

As a Christian I see God's meaning
and beauty in many things. For me the Sun is linked to the glory of God
and also represents the greater light or God. The Moon is the lesser light
reflecting the light and glory of the Sun. The moon shows light in the
darkness which represents Jesus. The Stars represents the Holy Spirit
which is omnipresent... so for me these symbols are spiritual signs of
Gods constant love and assurance for me.

|To find of
the meaning of the symbol moon and the stars you'd have to look to ancient
civilizations. The rulers or shamans would look to the moon for when to
plant, when to sow and other festivals because until written language this
was their only way to do things by the repetition of the moon each month.
The stars were used for navigation. So to say the least they would both
represent direction or courses/events/plans to follow. And it could just
be that the first person to make the symbol of out metal just like the
symbolizing of something magical, bigger than the person and the beauty of
the two most prominent things in the night sky.
My two cents Vanessa
mean a number of things, depending on the religious culture that adopts
it. For instance, the 6-pointed star of David is a actually a numerical
talisman for protection, but now stand as a Jewish symbol as well as a
symbol of protection. The 8 pointed star is one of my favorites that has
come down from Medieval magic combined with Christianity.. In Tarot cards
the 8-pointed Star Symbol appears with a goddess with one foot on the
ground and one in a stream, and means hope. The meaning has passed down
through Christo-pagan religions from the Moravians to the Pennsylvania
Dutch as well as the surrounding Native Americans they managed to convert
to Christianity as the "The Morning Star" or the Star of Hope.
It means that no destruction is ever final.

tells us why God created the moon and stars. Below are several reasons,
with verses to explain. They are lights for us; they declare the glory of
God and show his might:
Psa 136:8 The sun to rule by day: for his mercy [endureth] for ever:
Psa 136:9 The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy
[endureth] for ever.
Psa 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the
firmament sheweth his handiwork. They are evidence of God himself:
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,
[even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: God
goes on to command us neither to worship nor serve them (Put our trust in
Deu 4:19 And when thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and
when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, [even] all the host
of heaven, should not be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the
LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
Hope this helps!
