In a way, Doreah and Jhiqui are BOTH right. The moon in the Qartheen myth, isn't an actual moon, but a woman, just like Dany is the moon of Drogo's life and he is her sun and stars. The Sun in the myth just happened to have two wives. I think that one of the wives did exactly what Dany did when she walked into Drogo's pyre. Dany herself is the second moon that cracked to birth the dragons. The Sun and Moon are symbolic of actual people instead of the dragons symbolizing an astrological event.
Beautifully put. I admit that I'm biased towards myths being sources of social blueprints, with the ritual for "consciousness raising" built in. This is the ritual to follow to become a dragon goddess creator.
I'm sure many husbands (suns...who are sons) can relate to the idea that a single woman can feel like many people... many moods... many colors of the sky (like the Wall).
Dany is both moons. She is every moon. Yesterday she was a girl. Today she is a woman. Tomorrow she will be old.
LOL! We are all of those things, all the time. I think a lot of ills are caused by trying to be too much of any one phase. Life (for me at least) is much easier with a partner who is ok with a changing woman.
Dany embraces her Maiden, and her Mother. I think her return to the Dothraki marks the beginning of her Crone journey. She is afraid of it. She uses Death in anger in her Maiden aspect, and in protection in her Mother aspect - much like Arya - but she hasn't learned either the compassionate or dispassionate Death of the Crone.
