XVIII THE MOON
Illusion • Creativity • Chaos
Crystal Pigment: Kyanite
We need to understand our world, and to make sense of the chaos we give everything confines, names, rules, and masks - and often we believe those definitions to exist as a binary: male and female, good and evil, positive and negative. We forget that those extremes are rare, and most of reality dwells in a vast grey area.
The Moon rules such chaotic places, it is illusionary, shifting, and undefinable. We can wear many contradicting masks, and each one can be as true to ourselves as the next. The ability to see past those contradictions, to know that there is really no difference between dreams and reality except for the words we give to those experiences, gives birth to creativity, madness, and all the strangeness of a moonlit world.
