I absolutely adore moon folklore!
Some favourite moon stories recently:
- Lovely tale in One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg about three moon sisters - a magical graphic novel that I just finished reading.
- At my local storytellers group recently there was a great story about the Moon as the trickster goddess of stories and using them to outwit the Sun who fell in love with her but came on a bit too strong for her liking.
- I think in Japanese folklore the moon is a bunny?
- Neil Gaiman’s Stardust – kind-of (more about a star than the moon but some moon cameo)
- Rukia was always my favourite Bleach character and she always had lots of Moon imagery around her.
- Yuna from Final Fantasy X was a favourite and she also had lots of Moon connotations!
Anyway I'm going to go read about the Wakaranga moon myths now...
