NEXT ONLINE GODDESS CIRCLE
Saturday 21st March 7pm – 9pm
OSTARA SPRING EQUINOX CIRCLE
In our women circle we go deeper and learn the purpose of Equinox in the Wheel of the Year, nature’s growth cycle. Ostara is the name of this festival on the Wheel and is named after Ostara, the ancient saxon goddess of spring and fertility. Her symbols are the rabbit and egg, sound familiar?
We also dip into the summerian and babylonian myths of Goddesses ‘rising’ at spring. In the first part of the circle I will share with you Goddess myths of spring and fertility and in the 2nd half we will partake in a simple spring ritual to refresh and prepare for new beginnings.
To join you will need the following preparation:
– 2 candles (tealights ok)
– Pen & Paper
– Bunch of unopned spring flowers (i.e dafodills) Important that they are not yet flowering
– Ties or string.
– A drink of your choice and a biscuit and cake for blessing
The colours of this season are green and yellow so if you can bring these colours into your preparation more to the good. I.E. yellow and green candles, yellow and green ties. However white tealight are ok too! The intention is the important part here.
We will be setting sacred space together, however I do recommend you air and clean your room before we begin, so it feels comfortable and peaceful for yourself.
We will do some bodywork to loosen up and meditation to get into a calm and centered place.
To join reply to this email firstname.lastname@example.org before 4pm on 20th Saturday.
|ABOUT NEW AND FULL MOON ONLINE CIRCLES
I shall be connecting with you through the ether as we gather in our virtual circle via live zoom. The moon has many mysteries to share with those who seek her guidance and wisdom. Women have gathered for millenia at the full moon to celebrate our innate creative power and to honour our intuitive wisdom and knowledge. The moon’s 29 day cycle of increase, fullness and decrease mimicks our own menses cycle within the month with similar ebb and flow. The moon hold secrets and keys to our own creative cycle, healing and self empowerment? From my personal experience and those who have regularly joined my circles, the answer is definitive Yes!
So what do we do? Each full moon and new moon has a particular flavour according to which star sign is influencing the moon on that day. The star sign impacts a special quality and energy that we can harness and work with to improve and heal a particular part of our lives; relationships, home, work, health, love, creative and spiritual growth.
Each circle is unique as the energy of that moon is unique, the day is unique, the year is unique and the participants bring their unique and beautiful energy into each circle. But to give an idea we will generally cover the following:
You will be surprised how much of this moon connection will make ‘sense’ to you and how you will re-aquant yourself with the ancient healing and forgotten mysteries of the moon and reawake to the marvel of our own body cycle and deeper spiritual divine feminine essence. Qualities that are much needed in our own live and the greater world for balance and harmony. Hope to see you at one of my circle soon.
ABOUT GENERAL FACE TO FACE WOMEN GODDESS
Post lockdown and coronovirus we may once again gather for monthly face to face classes. Until then I am hosting online women circles focussing on the New and Full Moon and celebrations of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year; celebrating and harnessing the seasonal energy of the creative cycle; Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Spring Equinox, Beltane, Summer Solstice, Lammas, Autumn Equinox. We learn to truely understand, honour and live in harmony with Mother Earth and the forces of nature, the sun and moon.
Much Love, Lisabetta.
Below is a little bit more about these circles:
It is time for realising that women are Divine and have a powerful, potent spiritual legacy and heritage, of which the world is in much need, if we are to come to Balance us a collective human race and trust in the path of Love and collaboration.
Each month we focus on a theme and an aspect of the Great Goddess through:
- Ancient myths, aligning with the natural cycles of nature, harnessing the energy of nature and the universe and understanding and celebrating the 8 Ancient Celtic festivals (the Celtic Wheel of the Year).
Through meditating with aspects of Goddess in different cultures and pantheons we begin to intergrate the Goddess within.
Life is a cycle, a beginning, middle and end.
Thus too, we can understand the Great Goddess manifested from the Divine Feminine in her 3 aspects; Maiden, Mother, Crone. Every Goddess shines the quality of one of these aspects and some all 3.
- What the circle activities include? We allow time for contemplation, meditation, ritual, healing practises, growing awareness and sharings.
- When? The full moon, the new moon and the 8 Celtic festivals are potent times to gather and share and this has been the case for 10,000 yrs or more.
- Why do women gather for spiritual practise?. Because we are Active in the Spiritual realm as men are Active in the physical realm.
So intuition, heightened awareness, inner knowing and that quiet voice within is our wisdom and our connection to higher knowledge. It’s time we use our gifts productively to make positive changes in our community and beyond. We have the ability and the gifts to manifest change, for we all come from the same source, the cosmic womb of unlimited potential.
Are you ready to take responsibility for your life, your circumstances, feelings, emotions and thought and want to have control of them?. Not surpress them but face them, allow them and in the process Know Yourself.
Know Yourself Body, Soul and Spirit and create the life you want in Light and Love and share that with your tribe. If so then the Goddess calls to you!
