Happy New Year and with the new year comes an all new format for our New Moon Gatherings. Though I have loved our NM Gatherings and it has had a good long run – over 15 years – its time for a change.
– Ritual will now be WOMEN ONLY.
– Ritual will be on a Friday evening with time to gather afterwards, to chill and socialize.
Read on to get a feel for what’s next – I think you’ll be happy!
Women come join me.
Circle ’round the cauldron…
Let us gather in a community, supporting each other in validation and love. This powerful container allows us to be open and authentic, reaching deeply inward towards the core of our work. Through meditation & visualization, breathe work, fire ceremony and intimate sharing we explore vulnerable truths about ourselves to better understand who we are and how we operate. We bravely shine a light on our shadow to heal our old wounds, allowing us to become the powerful women we were meant to be.
Using astrology, divination tools, crystals, essential oils, life action steps, and candle magic we can refuel ourselves with guidance and inspiration that brings our visions and goals closer to reality.
Following circle, please join us as we unwind together over a shared table of healthy snacks and desserts.
The exchange for the evening is $20. We do not want to exclude women from joining our community. If payment is an issue please reach out and we can discuss options for your exchange, there are many and Rhianna is willing to be creative.
Please bring with you:
• Favorite Oracle Deck – there will be many on hand to use should you not have one
• Clear Quartz crystal that is no larger than the palm of your hand
• Healthy snack, dessert, and/or beverage to share
Who’s joining me to create their next, to step out of the fear and live their lives fully – with passion, wholeness, and joy? Who’s ready and willing to make space for their dreams to become a reality? Who’s not afraid to dig deep and uncover what holds them back? Who’s ready to till the soil, pull out the weeds and plant the seeds for their heart’s desires to grow and take root? Who’s going to join me and close the door on what is no longer working and open a new door?
I love you and hope that you hear the call to step into the life that you’ve been dreaming of and deserve. The world needs you in your fullness. Make it happen.
The Power of the New Moon
The New Moon represents the end of one cycle, and the beginning of a next. With it comes the powers of creativity and manifestation ~ this time begs you to become the architect of your dreams and desires, to construct the vision of what is next. The New Moon is the epitome of utmost potential. All possibilities are on the table, and it is the perfect time to move away from old habits and create a new life.
This is the best time to start new ventures, new relationships; the time for change and being open to new opportunities – time to prepare the soil and plant the seeds of ideas.
The Dark Moon, when there is not even a sliver of light visible from the moon, is considered to be the time to release all things from your life that are unnecessary, that no longer serve you, and need to be moved on from.
New Moon Lore
- When you see the New Moon, it is said one should bow to it for good luck.
- In Ancient Egyptian belief, the first time you laid eyes on the New Moon of the Cycle you were to bow three times to honor Osiris, Isis & Horus.
- There is a British legend that if Christmas day fell on a Dark Moon, the following year’s harvest would be bountiful
- It has been shown that severe weather, especially that of tornadoes, hurricanes and tsunamis, are more likely to occur during the Full and New Moon.
- Martha White over at The Old Farmer’s Almanac writes, “The new and first-quarter phases, known as the light of the Moon, are considered good for planting above-ground crops, putting down sod, grafting trees, and transplanting. From full Moon through the last quarter, or the dark of the Moon, is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.”
- Legends from various beliefs and backgrounds have in their stories reference to a rabbit that lives on or within the moon.

The Full Moon Circle
Rhianna has hosted a monthly Full Moon Ritual since 1995. Over these many years, the Full Moon Ritual has continued to provide a safe haven for women to experience the sacredness of community and to explore their spiritually.
Our Circle is a Sacred Sisterhood
We come together to draw upon the powerful, rich energies of community. We are non-denominational, with a foundation rooted in honoring the Mother Earth, and the light of the Goddess within each of us. We experience the support of the group’s loving energies in a healing, empowering, and insightful manner. We open our hearts each month to renew our connection to our Divine Source or as the case may be – to create that connection.
Together we create sacred space and share in ritual and meditation.
We honor our growth and all the wonderful, hard lessons that have brought us here to this moment. We celebrate the magic of sisterhood and all the ways it lifts us up. The loving support we receive from each other in this safe space encourages each of us to stand in our Divine light and live our highest potential.
Our circle is a space you grow with and into should you decide to sit with us awhile.
The Power of the Full Moon
The Moon holds a fascination for many. She illuminates our night sky, our tides ebb & flow due to her pull, women’s cycles average the same as that of the moon – and many individuals find some kind of connection to her, be it physical, spiritual, or emotional, resulting in a vast array of poems & lore written about her beauty, mystery, and power.
The Full Moon is the most powerful phase of the moon, and is the perfect time for celebration, completion of goals, or commitment to a person, a project or idea. In its Fullness, many imbue her power to strengthen spells, to clear & charge crystals, water or sacred objects; It is the perfect time to acknowledge what has been accomplished during that month prior, and give thanks & honor any significant moments at that time of the year.
Full Moon Lore
As we know now that the Moon is connected to and controls the ocean tides, it was also once believed that She controlled all waters, including the rains. As a result, prayers and celebrations to the Moon were common, especially at times of planting, harvest, and during periods of drought.
Stories about the creation of the Moon, her phases, her personification as a Goddess and stories about her awesomeness are abundant in Native American legends. In Blackfoot folklore, the moon was the goddess, Komorkis. She was married to the sun god, Natosi, and she was mother to all the stars. For the Cahuilla tribe, the moon was a goddess named Menily, who in their myths taught their people the arts of civilization.
