Weekly Women's Virtual Moon Circles

 

A circle of womxn may be the most powerful & illuminating force in the world. 

When womxn gather in a women’s moon circle, 

their collective presence changes the world. 

Come Gather

 

Our ancestral mothers gathered in a women’s moon circle to share around the fire not only for ritual, but as they prepared food for families and community.  They shared stories about their unique and collective experiences.  There was no leader, no submissive.

Womxn gathered to share stories from their daily experience, to initiate one another, to celebrate the changes in the body, to honor the transitions in lifespan, and to support one another.  The red tent was common as a place where women gathered in reverence to their moon cycle.

When an emphasis on increasing cognitive development occurred, what resulted was more linear thinking and behaviors. Gathering in circle was replaced with meeting in lines. In this way, both men and women became passive receivers of information and instruction from others in leadership positions.

 
 

When we meet in circle we join to hold everyone in sacred space and purpose as equals.

We are bringing forth an ancient way of connecting into modern times.

We gather to share stories, to deepen our identities individually and as part of a greater group.

We gather to enliven life.

We gather in circle to share our joy, to work on projects, or join in ritual at various levels of depth and purpose.

And, and we gather in circle to help to heal our world.

How We Gather

 

In order to observe COVID-19 safety regulations, all women’s moon circle gatherings are virtual.


After registration, participants will be provided online link and information on participation.

 
 

Full Moon Circle

 

We gather under the Full Moon in a full moon circle.

It is the time of the month when creativity, fertility, and mystery are heightened.

Many womxn instinctively look for ways to connect with others because it is a time when the feminine energy of Earth is at its fullest.

Many believe that the lunar cycle directly impacts a womxn’s emotions and that of the energies of the collective feminine unconscious.

A full moon circle allows us the opportunity to have the clarity of emotion while tapping into the collective intelligence and experience of the feminine.

New Moon Circle

 

We gather under the New Moon in a new moon circle.

The New Moon—as a symbol of new beginnings, is the phase of the moon cycle to look inward, set powerful intentions, set goals, create new explorations, and launch new projects.

The New Moon phase is often dark and invisible from earth making the night appear open, receptive. The darkness also allows us to see the stars that often unseen on a moonlit night.

Sharing a New Moon with other womxn in a women’s moon circle creates an experience based on restoration and trust. An invitation to slow down in community of other womxn, to listen to the deep desires of the heart, restoring ourselves in alignment.  

Waxing Half Moon Circle

 

We gather under the Waxing Half Moon

The waxing crescent phase is the moon’s first step toward fullness. And it’s a very visible shift — the moon is completely invisible (while it’s new) until a tiny sliver is illuminated. The moon is considered a crescent only when less than one half of it is visible.

Where the new moon is restorative and the full moon expansive, the waxing crescent — with its energy of faith and positivity — is a call to action.

Waning Gibbous Moon Circle

 

We gather under the Waning Gibbous Moon 

It becomes visible to us later at night and into the early morning.  The side that is lit up is facing toward the Sun, in this case, the sunrise direction which is why we can see it in day light.

The gibbous moon is either the last phase before the moon reaches fullness or the first phase after the full moon. In other words, a gibbous moon can either be waxing or waning.

The gibbous moon is a perfect time to focus your efforts toward breaking free of that which does not serve you. 

 
 

 

“As women connect around our circular earth, we are creating networks — circles within a larger circle, all part of this spiraling galaxy and an expanding field of creative form and force. We carry within us a spark of light initiated with the big bang—that same creative power that birthed the universe. It is time to manifest feminine potential and restore right balance and healing as obviously the force is with us.”

WE GATHER IN A
WOMEN’S MOON CIRCLE...

... to connect with the lunar energy, your own monthly cycles, the elements, and a tribe of like-minded women.

A moon circle is the time to go within, reflect, and connect body, heart, mind, and spirit with the energy of the moon.

Moon circles are ancient ceremonies to honor the moon and are a way to connect to the earth, other humans while grounding into ourselves. My intention is to create each  a sacred, safe space and where you can share openly and create community.   Learn more about Alexus
