GIRL WHO MARRIED THE MOON

Aleut legendary mortal

Also known as Woman Who Married The Moon

Wife of the Moon

She worshiped the Man in the Moon – absolutely idolized him. And one day he made her dreams come true! Yes, he took her to be his Moon Wife.

Imagine her disappointment when she discovered he did not live in the moon at all but a very ordinary hut somewhere in the sky.

Furthermore she was left very much alone as he went out all night and slept during the day. She wasn’t even allowed to look behind the curtain in the corner.

Eventually she allowed herself a glimpse — and found moon masks representing slivers, quarters and horns. Then a voice said ‘Now you know my secret.’

So now she has to go out all night and wear the appropriate moon phase mask all night long — while the Moon Man lives a life of leisure and only works once a month doing the mask of the Full Moon. This is what happens when you wish for the Moon.

Poor Mrs Moon. We can’t even tell you what her name is – no-one seems to know what it is. Perhaps she just prefers to be anonymous.
