This magnet features the Taino Moon Goddess.
The moon has for centuries kept us company. At night when everything is darker, larger, louder she offers us hope. Women have embodied this hope for us. The connection between women and the moon is symbiotic.
At some point in our evolutionary journey, the Moon became the universal image of the eternal Goddess. The Moon governed not only the tides of the sea, but also the "tides" of the womb. The menstrual cycle coincides with the 28-day cycle of the Moon. Even today, in many parts of the world women still refer to their menstrual cycle as being in their "moon time".
In the Northern latitudes, the New Moon became associated with spring, birth, and the growth of all living things. Like in nature, so in perception of Female as the maiden or young girl we can find similar correlation.
Associated with the Full Moon was summertime, when all life became fruitful. This phase of the Moon naturally became symbolic of motherhood.
To Taino's the Goddess of the Moon comes out of her cave nightly, it lies in the territory of the "cacique" leader, Mautiatibuel. Mautiatibuel is the son of the dawn or god of daybreak. She returns to her cave when the sun comes out.
