With a few exceptions, lunar deities found throughout the world in history were feminine, and women are associated with the Moon, with its tidal pull, and rhythmic cycles, constantly renewing itself, a symbol of serene eternal beauty. Moonstones throughout Herstory also represent the feminine principle. Water, and the natural forces associated with it all have fertility symbolism and cosmic associations with the continuance of life with water, an element always feminine in symbolism.
Springs, fountains, lakes and wells often had sacred significance as sources of life. The sea itself is the original source of life in many ancient traditions - a maternal image even more primary than the earth.
