Ashla and Bogan, the light and dark moons of Tython

Ashla, the bright moon of Tython, was symbolically seen as being attuned to the light side of the Force. The Jedi visited this moon whenever they were seen to be leaning a bit too much on the Light Side’s influence. Here they would stay and contemplate on the dark moon, Bogan, which symbolically represented the dark side of the Force. Vice versa, those veering too much to the darker impulses of the Force would visit Bogan, where they would meditate upon Ashla.

Ashla would remain associated with the Jedi who followed the light side of the Force, while the Sith chose the path of Bogan. Those Force-sensitives that leaned neither to the light or dark influences of the Force followed the path of the Bendu. Kanan Jarrus and his padawan Ezra Bridger once met an entity that represented this aspect of the Force on the planet Atollon.

Finally, in The Mandalorian Chapter 14, Tython was featured, but not its moons. But it’s great either way to see that the showrunners and story groups have found a way of reintroducing Legends material back into Star Wars.
