3 Phases of Moon

In India and many ancient cultures the moon was the most important of all the planets. As Chandra, the moon was married to the Pleiades and the 27 Nakshatras (mansions of the moon). As Soma the moon was the nectar of the gods. The three phases of the moon were a starting point for three phases of a goddess and a woman, which could be rendered as a triangle and specifically a downward triangle.
