Luna moths represent rebirth, renewal of body and spirit, regeneration and may even symbolize the soul itself. Luna moths, like many types of moths and butterflies, are quite beautiful in appearance and have docile personalities. Their physical beauty and charm make these large moths symbols of reflection, nourishment and life.

Luna moths are among the largest moths that live in the United States, and they are easily distinguished by their pastel green wings and soft, silky bodies. The name "luna" derives from the same Latin word, which means "moon." In some cultures, Luna moths are even thought to use the moon as a guide for orientation and navigation.
