Beginning with lunar science and history, Moonscapes presents a potpourri of facts from alchemy to modem astronomy. It then turns to religious and mythological aspects of the moon, including its influence on fertility, love, prosperity, and good fortune; its use in magic, initiation rites, divination, and witchcraft, including modern Wiccan beliefs and ceremonies; and its association with dark powers and creatures of the night, such as werewolves, vampires, and the spirits of the dead.”
