A New Moon perfects at 6°Virgo47’ at 3:37am PDT on August 30th. In an acutely polarized culture, especially within activist groups that often feel like a circular firing squad, working with the solar and lunar energy can be helpful to contextualize our experiences without resorting to complete disassociation. Virgo, deeply connected to the body, encourages development of our somatic intelligence and offers us the strong dose of humility we need to confront the profound work of building stamina in a world laced with wild critique. In this ceremony we will:
Talk about the cycles of the moon and the type of seeds we can plant when it's new
Locate the part in each of our charts that contains the sign of Virgo
Learn practices for individual mind, body and spirit check-ins in circle
Hold space, ground in with meditation, write and share personal experiences with others
Learn about the part in each of our charts that needs our tender service
Begin designing personal New Moon manifestos to help you navigate this lunar cycle
Eat snacks and drink tea symbolic of the season and offer self care practices you can take home to try out.
This ceremony is for you if you identify with any of the following:
you are curious or enthusiastic about astrology and/or you are an avid learner
you are looking for esoteric magical community that isn’t woowoo
you want to start or refine your lunar practice and need some tips or tools
you want to be cared for but not coddled
you want to be involved in experiencing and defining best practices for gathering
you feel nourished by knowledge and want to more deeply understand astrological archetypes
you want to learn about yourself through the map of your chart
*Please come prepared with your exact time, date and location of birth, something to write with and on, and a device that has a web browser (your phone is A-ok!).
**This event is freely offered to the community. It is also a potluck that encourages (but doesn’t require) service-oriented participation. This practice affirms the value of many ways to help cultivate communal gathering spaces. If you have the resources of energy and nourishment to spare, please bring a snack to share with the group or arrive 20min early to help set up!
If you would like to attend, please fill out the RSVP form below. The location and additional details will be e-mailed to participants within 2 days of the event.
