Moon is the protector and guardian of the earth. It controls the tides and, with the stars, illuminates the night. The moon spirit watches over us and has the ability to change our moods. As well as stealing the Sun to bring daylight, the Raven stole the Moon, along with the Stars, and flung them to the sky to lighten the darkness of night.
