Selene is the personification of the Moon in Greek Mythology. She was represented as a young and beautiful woman who traveled the Sky in a silver carriage pulled by a yoke of white oxen or a pair of horses. She was often portrayed riding a horse or a bull, wearing robes, wearing a half moon over her head and carrying a torch.

Some practitioners of Modern Paganism see Selene as the Mother aspect (Full Moon) of the Triple Goddess, with Artemis being the Maiden, and Hecate the Crone.

Devotional text

Hear, Goddess queen, diffusing silver light,

Bull-horned and wandering through the gloom of Night.

With stars surrounded, and with circuit wide

Night’s torch extending, through the heavens you ride.

Female and Male with borrowed rays you shine,

and now full-orbed, now tending to decline.

Mother of ages, fruit-producing Moon,

whose amber orb makes Night’s reflected noon.

Lover of horses, splendid, queen of Night,

all-seeing power bedecked with starry light.

Lover of vigilance, the foe of strife,

in peace rejoicing, and a prudent life.

Fair lamp of Night, its ornament and friend,

who gives to Nature’s works and their destined end.

Queen of the stars, all-wise Artemis hail!

Decked with a graceful rob and shining veil.

Come, blessed goddess, prudent, starry, bright,

Come moony-lamp with chaste and splendid light

Moon, grant me courage and strength to face all hardship and distress.

You are my protective shield against all adversity.

And with all your strength you help me achieve my dreams.

My heart fills up with confidence in you.

Help me give the best of myself,

Help me to explore the depth of my being

Find all those talents you have sown in me

To achieve success and happiness in each and every task that I perform.

You are patient with my efforts to learn.

I will also be patient with myself and with others.

You are radiant light in sacred darkness

In your womb I was born and I grow,

Take me around the circle to be reborn,

Forever.

So mote it be.
