Selene was a Titan goddess in Greek mythology, daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia. She had two siblings, Helios and Eos. She was the goddess of the moon, which she drove every night across the skies. Selene was linked to Artemis as well as Hecate; all three were considered lunar goddesses. Luna is the Roman equivalent.

Lunarians are gentle and sensitive. They are kind, patient with others, extremely sociable, and are said to “embody the Maternal archetype”. The Moon sits in the heavens with the stars, and it is there the imagination is most alive. Lunarians are the innovators, the dreamers, the people coming up with the other-worldly ideas.
The balancing force to the outward energy of the Sun, it is Luna that represents the Yin energy in collective existence. Lunarians like to keep to themselves, partially because they are cautions until the feel safe and accepted, then they become trusting and friendly. Lunarians also exist in the mental/imaginative realm. They are the idea-makers.
Albert Einstein was almost a pure-type Lunarian. Think of all the breakthroughs he came up with by virtue of “thinking out of the box”. The Lunarian is the archetype most in-touch with the collective subconscious. These people definitely walk the fine line between insanity and utter genius.
Luna rules the breasts, and abdominal organs, including the womb and prostate. Luna is a Water sign associated with Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer in the zodiac.
Lunarians not only love being near the water, but tend to keep excess water stored in their bodies. The body type is soft and round. The hips and stomach usually protrude; the shoulders narrow and sloping. Lunarians are physically extreme in height and can be the tallest or the smallest people in the room. Lunarians tend to be a bit strange-looking, contributing to their other-worldly appearance.
The arms are short and usually not very muscular. Lunarians have decidedly weak jaws and receding chins are typical in the archetype. A distinguishing factor for Lunarians is very large lower-limbs: thick legs and large feet.
Lunarian eyes tend to be pale and watery, contributing to their water element. Near-sightedness is common. Their eyes may slant downward at the outer corners.
The most common mouth is almost like a slit although sometimes the lips form a rosebud mouth with a sweet expression. Lunarians rarely go bald and they prefer loose-fitting comfortable clothing similar to peasant attire.
Because Lunarians spend so much time in their mind it is sometimes hard for them to consider other people. This is the most selfish of all the archetypes, producing a coldness towards other people due to the inherent coldness of their composition. Lunarians are very changeable and can be quite fussy.
It is rare to find this archetype in its pure form, and quite a good thing: Lunarians tend to feel mismatched with their lives on planet Earth.
The Lunarian may not love to move the physical body but loves to move the mind. These are our avid readers and travelers. They need stimulation of the senses. Lunarians spend much time in the mind and for this they need relaxation and solitude. Changing location is very beneficial to the stagnate Lunarian. And travel by water is particularly beneficial.
Here are some examples of contemporary Lunarians.
