Experience the New Moon Each Month,

Connect with the Lunar Rhythm All Year


 

What soul seeds are you longing to plant under the fertile soil of the dark moon?

What sacred practices help you feel refreshed and enlivened with each new moon?

 

Every dark moon offers the opportunity for us to pause and breathe new life into what we desire ~ personally and for the collective. We take this time to listen, remember, and connect with our innate ways of knowing.

Step into an embodied connection with the New Moon to discover, deepen, and/or ritualize your practice! 

Guided by the lunar rhythm, we will enliven our manifestations and refresh our hopes as we embrace each new beginning. Rooted in the Earth while reaching for the sky, we will whisper prayers of intention and ceremonially anchor them for each restorative lunar cycle. 

Join us in person at The StarHouse for these celestial events

to cultivate a conscious relationship with the Sun and Moon, as well as the planets and stellar beings of the zodiac. 

 

What happens at a New Moon Ceremony?

During these live, in-person ceremonies, we will explore:

  • the position of the moon in relationship to other celestial beings
  • the influence and gifts from the zodiacal being hosting the New Moon and other significant astrological influences
  • one or more particular botanical allies¬†for each lunar cycle as terrestrial gateways to celestial wisdom from the planets
  • meditations and embodiment practices to invite deeper contemplation,¬†connection, and¬†communion
  • guidance on and ideas for personal ritual for the coming month

The evenings at the StarHouse will be shaped and guided by:

  • Gentle teachings rooted in astrology, herbalism, embodiment, mythopoetic resonance, and earth-based practices
  • Rituals for renewal and tools to refresh with each New Moon cycle
  • Inspiration from and awareness of the seen and unseen beings who join us
  • The essence of the constellation (zodiac sign)  hosting each New Moon
  • Collective co-creative energies that come alive when we gather together in our circle

What is a New Moon? How can this support me?

At New Moon, the Sun and Moon are “together” in the sky from our perspective on Earth, so that the Moon is between the Sun and the Earth.

At this point in the lunar cycle, direct access to the Sun’s gift of light and warmth is reduced, so we must find the radiance from within our own being. New Moons emphasize creativity from everyone—experiencing your own Sun shining from within.

Foster deeper connection, belonging and engagement with the StarHouse, Sacred Sites, surrounding wild lands, and the growing global community that nurtures this Sacred Place!
