Astrological Moon Circle Theme Ideas
Uh oh. It’s your turn to host the moon circle and you are out of moon circle theme ideas. Have no fear. This will help you out.
New or Full Moon?
The first consideration is for your moon circle them is the moon phase. Is it a new moon or a full moon? If it’s a new moon, you may want to focus on beginnings and setting intentions. The moon is resting, so relaxing and meditating are also appropriate. For a full moon, you could focus on what you’re harvesting or letting go of. We want to make space for what is coming. This is a time for activity so things like dance or playing work well at this time.
Now you want to look at the calendar to tell you what sign the moon is in. Although the energy of the Moon changes every 2 1/2 days, we observe the same sign for the entire lunar cycle. For example, if the new Moon is in Virgo, we will focus and concentrate on that Virgo energy until the next new Moon.
