40: TALKING TO THE MOON | Mayari, Goddess of the Moon (Tagalog and Kapampangan)
Once in a blue moon, we post about our Filipino Gods and Goddesses.
In this episode, we talk about Mayari, the most beautiful and fierce goddess of the moon, her origins, the legend of why the moon rules the night with a slightly dimmer glow, and why you really can’t trust siblings to fight it out.
Also, learn along with us the colorful, contradictory, and actually logical superstitions and practices that surround the moon in all its forms and how it affects just how plump your coconuts can get (actual coconuts).
