The Moon

Nature: Location / world / primary satellite of Earth / 2nd of the 7 classical "celestial bodies" / gigantic chunk of rock in space (depending on your point of view)
Spiritually: Luna
Notable places: Dark side of the moon, Gareos

For most of mankind's existence, the moon has been regarded as one of the most primal and powerful mystical symbols, no matter the culture, having important influence on language, calendars, science and art. It has featured in literally uncountable religions, cults, myths, fairytales and legends, and is seen as a basic feature of the human existence.

In classic cosmology the moon represented the boundary between the mundane, mutable, chaotic realm of the earth (the "sublunary sphere"), and the divine, unchanging, pure, mathematical realm of the heavens (the "superlunary sphere").

Scientifically, it is the one satellite in the solar system we have the most knowledge about, and the only planetoid apart from earth mankind has visited themselves (as far as modern western secular opinion is concerned, at least). Its existence influences the tides, global weather patterns, human psychology (empirically proven), and the planet's rotation & tilt.
