Lura the White Moon

The moon Lura has often been depicted in popular art as a pale-skinned queen draped in white robes and riding an ivory elk across the night sky. In this anthropomorphic form she is said to deliver presents to young children on the winter solstice, that time of the year when winter first begins to end and the world draws closer to the sun.

The study of Lura figures prominantly in occult circles, as many mages and hedge witches time their spells according to her cycles. A few even harness her energy by distilling her light into potions and crystals for later use, mostly for dream magic and charms.

Lura is said to have magical influence over woodland creatures, dreams, astral travel, charms, and healers, and when working with these things it is best to employ the use of a charm marked with the rune of Lura, the White Moon.
