When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

What Is It About?
This is how Fandom describes this scene:
Shadow awakens in the middle of the night in Czernobog‘s and the Zoryas’ apartment.
He discovers the living room window open and climbs out onto the fire-escape and up to the roof.
Zorya Polunochnaya is star-gazing, keeping watch over Odin’s Wain and the Great Bear.
She explains to him that she and her sisters monitor the sky day and night to make sure the “bad thing chained up in those stars” does not escape and eat up everything.
She reads Shadow’s palm and says he has nothing because he believes in nothing.
She asks if he sold his head to Czernobog and tells him she can help him in exchange for a kiss.
They kiss, and she proceeds to tell him to “take the moon.”.
He doesn’t understand what she means, so she does it for him and plucks it out of the night sky.
She gives it to him, telling him it is protection, but not as strong as the sun protection he was given once before.
She tells him to wake up.
This is one of several little magical scenes from the television show and the book that I like.
I wish that goddesses would have been featured more in the book, and I hope that more goddesses are shown in the television show in the upcoming season(s).
I like the actress Erika Kaar in this role as the character Zorya Polunochnaya.
Furthermore, I think that her performance and her appearance (clothing, hair, et cetera) et cetera worked well in this scene, and hopefully we will get to see her again in the show.
