So I’ve been asked to write some real deep stuff about some real simple stuff that you don’t usually give a second glance unless you’re like a poet or something.
So the first thing I’ve chosen to dive into deeper meanings about would be this circular object which we see every night. The moon is a planet which orbits the earth and is part of our solar system. However if we look at it deeper, for me the moon symbolises darkness and mystery, as usually its associated with nightfall and all the things that go bump in the night. Also the moon stands for the maternal influences so the moon represents women. It can also show subtlety, clarity, transformation and femininity.
The second thing I have chosen to look at in more detail would have to the ‘Common Raven’. The common Raven is a large all-black passerine bird. The bird being all black and usually associated with the grim reaper usually leaves us thinking dark things of it. For me the raven symbolises death, darkness, mystery but also beauty and the act of seeking something. It can also show pain for the crow of a raven is a loud, low, gurgling croak or a harsh grating sound.
My final item is the good old pumpkin. The pumpkin is usually associated with Halloween which can make you feel of childhood if you celebrate Halloween and for me personally it makes me think of warm homey smells like pumpkin pie and wood filled fireplaces and warm jumpers and crunchy leaves and candy filled baskets and toffee smothered apples and… GHOSTS AND WITCHES AND CINDER-IFFING-ELLA
