The moon might represent someone with more of something, while the stars depict someone with less. Everyone has a different amount of many things; including money, happiness, love, confidence, fame, and family.

It is very much a feeling of insecurity or inferiority in that one person may be better than another based on how much money they make or what kind of a family they live in. Jealously can be linked to a lack of confidence, and because of this, they become insecure and feel inferior in one way or another. In society and in life, the evidence presented to support this position is pervasive. For example, take the case of Christopher Columbus's voyage to the Americas in 1492.
