Today I’m going to share with you a look into my women’s circles. I want to share the journey from my first women’s circle to my last one, how it started, what it is, what you do, what the point is, the energy that comes from it, and some stories from the circles we’ve done.
What is a women's circle?
For thousands of years, women have been coming together and holding space for one another to create magic, intention, emotion, and vulnerability. The outcome from these circles is incredible, and so powerful. Not only the feeling when you’re actually in the circle, but the things that you’re then able to put to rest, or set intentions around. It's about knowing you’re supported, loved, and exactly where you’re supposed to be right now.
Women’s circles are done around either a full moon or a new moon. For both new and full moons, you can observe them day before, the day of, and the day after.
It is when the moon is at its darkest and is sometimes called the dark moon.
From here is where it gradually builds in strength towards the full moon.
It is a more introspective time and represents new beginnings as we plant seeds for the future.
It’s a good time to set clear intentions for the month ahead, clarify your goals, start new projects, and acknowledge your growth.
It’s also a good time to let go and release what no longer serves you so that you can welcome in the new.
Is the phase where the sun illuminates the entire moon.
It represents completion, fertility, abundance, and transformation.
It can also be a time of friction, polarity, and more intense emotional energy.
Everything is in full illumination. Which means it’s a good time to look honestly at the full spectrum of what is or is not working for you.
With this higher energy also comes more outward connection and celebration, plus your psychic abilities may be more fully awake, so listen closely to what you intuitively want to shed, let go of, and release.
How do women's circles go?
With every moon we start by dropping in, introducing ourselves and saying what is present for us, what are we feeling right now. We’re able to get to know each other, we set the agreements to the circle, and what our expectations are of ourselves and each other. We want to make sure everyone feels respected and everyone’s boundaries are being met, and that people are getting the support and the love that they came here for.
What can you do for a new moon?
When I held my circle for the new moon, we set intentions for 2022, we talked about the things that may have held us back or things we wanted to let go of, We did an exercise for the things we wanted to let go of by burning some paper. Then we were able to plant the seeds for 2022 by writing our intentions on a bay leaf, and planting it inside a small succulent.
What can you do for a full moon?
This full moon was all about putting things to close and letting go of things that have been holding us back, or things we have been struggling with. We created some energy with water, by using herbs and essential oils to indicate things that were holding us back. We dissolved those things with sea salt and then we were able to stand on my canal, be under the full moon, and then dump our bowls of water into the canal to be washed away.
I’m not sure what this is all going to evolve into but I’m excited. I’m excited to see the transformation that comes from our circle.
