The moon goddess, Mene (otherwise known as Selene) was the sister of the sun god, Helios. Mene's golden crown illuminated the night sky. Every night, Mene would begin her journey across the heavens after her brother had finished his.
She was portrayed as clad in splendid robes riding across the sky in a chariot drawn by shining steeds. Sometimes she was portrayed as mounted on a horse, a mule or a bull. Her beauty attracted Zeus the greatest of the Olympic gods. Zeus made Mene the mother of three (3) daughters.
The best known legend of Mene is that of her love for Endymion. One legend has Endymion as a young prince who, tired from hunting, fell asleep in a cool grotto. When Mene saw him, she was captivated by his beauty and stole a kiss. Endymion asked Zeus to grant him immortality and eternal youth. Zeus agreed on the condition that he remain eternally asleep. Mene then came silently every night to contemplate her sleeping lover.
Lunar energies are useful for contact with inner dimensions, dreams, change, travel, and success with the public. They also have a strong erotic component to them as illustrated by the legend of the moon shining its amorous rays on sleeping humanity.
Silver was the colour attributed to the Moon, and hence Mene (Selene).
