The Feb full moon is in Leo and close to Imbolc. This is a double invitation to celebrate the element of fire which burns away what is no longer needed and also warms, powers and illuminates new growth. Imbolc is about stirings and the return of the light. We can see the natural world stiring around us, as things begin to grow. What is stiring within you as the new year takes shape. What are you passionate about, that you would like to grow and manifest? What stands in the way? What could benefit from the warm focus of fire energy?
We live in a fast paced world and can sometimes forget to notice the cycles of nature that are occurring around (and within) us. The moon is silently and very powerfully completing a cycle of waning and waxing each month and when it is full, shines brightly in illumination of all that has been and all that is to be. Taking time to sit together in a circle when the moon is at it’s brightest can be a deeply enriching experience. Shining light on our inner landscape through deep listening and authentic sharing together, is a deceptively simple activity, that can birth powerful alchemy. In honour of this, Jenny holds a circle each full moon.
This is a mixed gender circle and will be slightly different each month, depending on that particular moon; it’s astrological influences and it’s relation to the Celtic calendar. Each circle will also be co-created by your individual experience of this particular moon and the alchemy we weave as a group. It will contain reflection, deep listening, sharing, song, sound, ceremony and finish with a focused time of creative play and manifestation. There will be a selection of art materials provided, including clay, paint, wire, beads and natural found objects.
Please bring an object of current significance to you, to energise on the altar. Everything else is provided.
