The signification of the sun is celestial good (AC 1529, 1530, 2120, 2441, 2495, 3636, 3643, 4060); and the signification of the moon is spiritual good, or truth (AC 1529, 1530, 2495). The sun in the supreme sense signifies the Lord, because He appears as a sun to those in heaven who are in celestial love; and the moon also in the supreme sense signifies the Lord, because He appears as a moon to those in heaven who are in spiritual love; all the light in heaven is thence. Therefore the light from the sun there is the celestial of love, or good, and the light from the moon there is the spiritual of love, or truth.
from AC 4696
