New Moon Astrology Circle
The transits of the planets and the natural cycles of the moon have a profound effect on our energy levels, mood, health, and our ability to communicate with and relate to others. Understanding what’s going on astrologically can help us to live in harmony with our own natural cycles, striking better balance in our lives. New moons begin powerful cycles for planting seeds of intention while the full moon helps us bring cycles to a close. Tapping into the moon’s cycles for manifestation can be a powerful tool for self-awareness and personal transformation.
Harnessing these powerful cycles with an understanding of what energies we are working with each month can help us along our own personal journeys. Each circle will begin with a planetary ‘forecast’ as an educational tool to understand the forces we are working with and how we can best utilize current planetary influences (when we learn to float downstream with natural cycles we don’t have to extend as much energy and feel defeated by fighting the current of life). Group members will have an opportunity to create a list of what they want to let go of during each moon cycle and what they would like to manifest. Members will be led through a drumming meditation to aid them in their process (directives will change depending on the planetary theme each month).
