The Man In The Moon legend


AnjelWolf

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys...

 

While at the flea market this afternoon...a man was referred to come and speak with me (via a friend of mine). This man stated that he recently found out that his great-great-great-great-great?-great grandfather was actually the sorcerer that the legend of the "Man in the Moon" came about and that he has to live in the moon for all of eternity because when he made a deal with the devil and the devil tricked him to get his soul...God sent the angels down to retrieve him but because his burden was so great he only made it to the moon and so now lives in the moon for all of eternity (hence why he is now referred to as "The man in the moon").

 

I listened patiently as this gentleman went on about saying how he is on his spiritual path and was in need of guidance and how strange events had always happened to him his his life but he always dismissed them until he finally learned the fate of this grandfather (great, great, great, etc.), and how his wife (she was with him as well) does Reiki healing, etc.

 

He has asked for me guidance. I got his name and gave him my email addy (he states he lives in another state but vacations here alot). My hubby didn't warm up him at all (his facial/body stance was 100% military/police authorative, which told me he was not relaxed around this guy). After the guy left my hubby told me his gut feelings was that there was something not "kosher" about the guy and his story and didn't want me dealing with him alone.

 

Anyhow...ok...so has anyone ever heard of this??? If so please give me the background information.

 

Thanks...

Never heard of the Man in the Moon legend. I always thought this was something children say because there looks as if there is a face in the moon. This chap sounds like a bit of a nutter! Trust your hubby's instincs. I imagine that part of his army training involves assessing a situation and what feels right or wrong. This certainly sounds as if it might be the latter.

Hi Anjel, I had never heard of this, there are several stories about the man in the moon but this isnt mentioned anywhere, I have been searching the net for the last couple of hours and can find nothing like it anywhere, I reckon hubby is right on this occasion. Tread carefully Anjel!:hugs: ;)

yeah absolutely...my friend who recommended him to speak to me as well gave him her phone number. He called her today while I was with her and asked if we both could meet him to do a reading. I declined and advised her not to agree. She didn't. I also searched and searched...couldn't find anything out to verify hs story. He told me his great, great, great, great+ grandfasthers name but I couldn't remember all of it...it was something like Count...blah blah blah I wasn't really concentrating on him as much as looking at Rays behavior.

Yeah my hubby and I talked about it briefly last night...he (again) rmarked that he simply didn't like the guy and didn't believe his story either. Rare for my husband to feel so strongly about a person whom he doesn't even know...unless his gut feelings are 100% correct. With the combination of him not trusting the guy...all of you and myself unable to locate the origin of his story...I believe this guy needs to be left alone (or in a padded room) LOL!!!

I know nothing about the legend, but even as I was reading your post, I could feel all the hairs on the back of my neck and down my back and arms stand on end. He doesn't "feel" right. My gut feeling is stay as far away from him as you can. I don't feel good about his 'wife' either.

Yeah that seems pretty clear from everyone so far as well...you guys should have seen my hubby...he stood at "military stance" with a cold stare. It was strange at first seeing that behavior...and he hasn't budged on his feelings either...yeah this guy won't be within arms length of me at any point.

Greetings, AW.

 

I know nothing about the man in the moon legend but suspect that its origin may be very old indeed. Many races in the world believed that the sun was feminine and the moon was masculine. There are many sun goddesses and many moon gods in older cultures. Sin was a moon god and I believe Thoth was also a moon god. Even Bride was alleged to be a sun goddess at one time.

Yeah I've heard of those as well...in all of my research I couldn't pull up anything to resemble his claim to that claim. I haven't heard from him since that last call he placed to a friend of mine.

In 1969 the news of the moon landing reached Siberia. One local guy was unimpressed: "My uncle's a Shaman he goes there all the time"

 

Travelling to the moon or to heaven seems to be a feature of some Shamanic traditions:

So it's possible that this guy is descended from some kind of shaman. But he sounds like a nut to me.

 

Glad you liked my site!

PMSL this has been very entertaining:D

 

I attract nutters like moths to flame. I hated it when I was a nurse because I always got them to look after..... made for some interesting shifts though.

 

I'll have to tell you the tale of the shit flinging orangutan some time:rolleyes:

Yeah, there's something about nursing for a living that exposes us to the true nutters... lol... I've got 14 years worth of stories that still make me laugh out loud! :eek:

Yeh, I only manage 5 years before a patient crippled me. In that time I got to be an acting charge nurse on a 20 bed ITU unit, I'm quite proud of what I accomplished, but that was then and this is now.

 

I did have some great times though, and some of the patients were amazing.

Some are NOT so amazing, as well... but I try my best to take the good and let the bad go. I am not always successful with that... but overall I have to say that nursing has been good to me, and has allowed me to do the things I've wanted to do over the years.

During my career as a Victims Advocate there were plenty of "WTF" moments that made me shudder with creepiness or piss my pants laughing...and a few of "OMFG!" moments that just plain scared the crap out of me LOL! One day I might share a few of them stories with you LOL

Strange how so many of us have been healers in one form or another. I wonder are healers attracted to witchcraft or are witches attracted to healing?
