Lunar Wisdom: An Interview with Anthony Aveni

Lunar Wisdom: An Interview with Anthony Aveni

Dec 5, 2017-- According to cultural astronomer Anthony Aveni at Colgate University, the moon and the sun are in a cosmic dance that defines our very relationship to life.

Aveni has explored the meanings attributed to the sun and the moon in cultures around the world and contrasted that with our own. What he has discovered sheds light on our own understanding of the meaning of existence. He says, "The celestial players re-enact for us the human drama, with implications for our understanding of male and female, light and dark, good and evil, night and day."
