On the 15th day of July 2015, we celebrate Mooncircles’ 15th birthday. That means, on our little piece of the cloud, we’ve celebrated over 375 New and Full Moons. We appreciate all who have joined us over the years in celebrating the Divine Feminine. We hope our ever widening circles of Moon lovers continue to bring more wisdom, joy, and intuitive understanding to the world.
We launched on a Mercury retrograde near a solar eclipse. I mention this to offer courage to anyone who finds they’re beginning something at a notoriously bad time. Such a birth chart might have spelled our doom. But the momentum for launching that summer was strong, so we embraced it consciously. We knew it would encourage us to keep making changes and keep growing beyond our vision, and, without losing our central theme, this is what we’ve done.
One ambitious plan that failed was hosting real-time Full Moon ceremonies–at the Full Moon moment–with participants around the world. I don’t know if anyone ever did join us–but after a few months of these virtual ceremonies, even we lost interest in them. What worked was to offer bi-monthly space for wonderful voices, studying, cheering, and wondering about the Moon.
We continue to move in that direction. For the past year, I’ve been working on yet another “wing” for the site, a playground for calculating charts and learning astrology in an easy, intuitive way. As always, taking such an idea into reality goes more slowly than I’d wish, but I’ll be delighted if in the meantime, you keep spending your Moons with us.
