The Star Goddess

Listen to the words of the Star Goddess: the dusts of Whose feet are the hosts of heaven, Whose body encircles the Universe:

Doreen Valiente, “The Charge of the Goddess”

Without that gravitational pull, the Moon would move farther out into space away from the Earth. Also, the Moon’s gravity affects our ocean tides. Obviously, as with astrology, there is a fine balance between the Sun, Moon and Earth.

The Moon is larger than Pluto with a diameter of approximately 2,160 miles. It takes approximately 27.3 days to travel all the way around the earth, moving at a rate of a little over one-half mile each second. According to some scientists, the Moon’s rate of orbit is slowing down…
