Who Is Goddess Ch'ang O?

Ch'ang O is the Moon goddess in Chinese mythology. 

Ch'ang O and her husband were cast out of heaven and had to become mortals in order to survive on Earth. 

Ch'ang 0 took a full dosage of an immortality medication intended for both her and her spouse in order to return to her former splendor. 

She drifted to the moon, doomed to be alone for the rest of her life. 

Women in China pray to Ch'ang O to bring them their soul mate during the lunar holiday. 

Sweet foods and incense are given to Ch'ang 0, and the hare is her holy animal.
