The Full Moon Circle
Women’s Full Moon Circle began in 1995 at Rhianna’s first shop, Call of the Wild in Beacon, NY. In 1998, the shop, renamed the Dreaming Goddess, relocated to Poughkeepsie, NY and with it our circle. Over these many years, the Women’s Full Moon Circle 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 are a gathering of women, coming together to draw upon the powerful, rich energies of the Full Moon. We are a non-denominational group, with our foundation rooted in honoring the Mother Earth, and the light of the Goddess within each of us. Together we create sacred space and share in ritual and meditation. 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.
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. 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.
