The Sun

The sun happens to be a very powerful symbol in its own right, perhaps one of the greatest symbols of all. After all, our world is dependent on the sun to keep our atmosphere livable. Without it, permanent winter and darkness would descend, and it wouldn’t take very long for every living thing on Earth to perish.

This is probably why you can find some form of sun worship across nearly every culture on the planet. Just think about the ancient Egyptian’s worship of Ra, the sun god. The Romans, Greeks and Aztecs also gave this deity its due. Even modern civilization has its own form of sun worship. Just drop by any beach at the height of summer to find a bevy of bikini clad beach goers attempting to bronze themselves with the sun’s fiery fingers.

In astrological terms, the sun represents Yang energy, which is masculine in nature.
The Moon The moon plays Yin to the sun’s Yang. This astrological body is feminine in energy, and is considered a symbol of the feeling side of human nature.As a deity, moon worship is even older than sun worship. Consider Isis, the goddess symbolic of the moon in ancient Egyptian culture. She actually predates sun worshipers. The phases of the moon were also noted by the ancients to have a direct affect on the Earth. The moon’s gravitational pull governs the tides, and her distinct phases were also used to create the first calendars civilization had ever known. In fact, some cultures and religions, still follow the lunar calendar.

Moon tattoos make glorious use of this astrological body in all her phases. Designs include full moons, crescent moons and everything in between.
