Mooncore is an aesthetic based on art and beauty of the moon and other celestial bodies. It is known for supporting and adoring the beauty of the dark skies above us and whatever is happening in them. Many people describe it in all types of art, including art and music. It isn't specified to any minority, although most of them are usually just individuals who like this concept and are interested in space.


Mooncore also revolves around emotions, due to its spiritual meaning. Many people simply enjoy company of the moon and feel very relieved around its own being. It is a concept seeking peace by subjects that were in humanity's interests for years, hence it being 'supernatural'. The proper way to call somebody taking interest in this aesthetic is a Selenophile or a Moonchild.

She didn't quite know what the relationship was between lunatics and the moon, but it must be a strong one, if they used a word like that to describe the insane.
