JOIN US FOR A BEAUTIFUL NEW MOON CIRCLE
AND OUTDOOR FIRE CEREMONY!
***NOTE: Rain is anticipated. See notes at end of description.***
This month the New Moon is in the expansive, fiery sign of Sagittarius. When the moon is new, the sun and moon are aligned in the same sign and a powerful energy portal is opened. Would you like to find the opening to that portal?
While the new moon is always a potent, magical time for making wishes, planting seeds (real or symbolic), and setting intentions, this new moon is particularly powerful because it is the very beginning of the last moon cycle of 2012!!
From tonight onward, the moon will grow stronger and brighter all the way through Winter Solstice 2012 (and beyond)! Energy is building! What do you want to bring into form as we prepare to spiral into 2013, the time beyond time?
Sagittarius is the explorer, the wanderer, the Jupiter-infused archetype of freedom, liberation, philosophy, and learning. What does the new moon in Sagittarius mean to you?
***TONIGHT, IN THE BACKYARD OF A PRIVATE RESIDENCE, WE WILL HAVE THE RARE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE AN IN-TOWN JOURNEY CIRCLE WHILE GATHERED AROUND FIRE.***
Two journeys will be offered. The first journey will be for you to connect with the new moon in Sagittarius, and the second journey will be for stirring up energy for Mother Earth. Please bring your drum, rattle, singing voice, bells, singing bowls or whatever to stir up some energy for Mother Earth.
***MEET AT HIMMEL PARK. WE WILL GATHER AT THE PLAYGROUND (which is just south of the parking lot, which is off of Tucson Blvd., 2 short blocks south of Speedway). THEN WE WILL WALK TOGETHER FOR FIVE MINUTES TO THE BACKYARD OF THE NEARBY PRIVATE RESIDENCE. HERE WE WILL GATHER AROUND THE FIRE FOR OUR CIRCLE!***
Several chairs will be available, but you may wish to bring your own chair. Please bring a blanket, flashlight, or anything that will make your journey comfortable for you.
NOTE: No bathroom is available at the private residence, so please take care of your needs accordingly :)
Our regular new moon host Dee (and her Power Animal Owl) are on a journey afar, so tonight's gathering will be hosted instead by Alyson Greene. Alyson is a frequent flyer on Dee's monthly moon journeys, and she looks forward to sharing Sagittarius New Moon magic with you!
This circle is offered by spirit-guided donation. (Ask within to know how much to offer.) Proceeds support the many offerings of the Institute for the Shamanic Arts. Thank you!
***Rain is anticipated.*** The weather report says that strong gusty winds will develop this afternoon ahead of an approaching low pressure system. Rain will occur tonight with a slight chance of thunderstorms.
BRING A RAIN HAT, JACKET, AND/OR UMBRELLA. If the air is calm (no wind), and we only have a few sprinkles, we will still have our outdoor fire ceremony as planned. :)
However, if it is stormy (or even just gusty), we have a Plan B. . . We will move our ceremony indoors and journey with fire via candlelight (and maybe lightening, too!) Still bring raingear because, regardless of the weather, we will gather at Himmel Park for 10-15 minutes before walking over to the private residence.
NOTE: The private residence is very small, so we will be quite cozy. There is seating (pillows, blankets, or couch and chairs) for 15, the number who reserved on Meetup, but there will not much wiggle room. It will be a cozy, magical night of fire and moon magic—whether we our outdoors or indoors!
In summary, please bring the following:
Optional items: Rhythm instrument for our second circle (optional), blanket or cushion, flashlight.
NOTE: If you wish to bring an outdoor chair, you may. (We have outdoor seating for 13). But if we get rain, and we come inside, your chair will get wet.
See you tonight!
Blessings of new moon magic to you,
