Women and the moon experience phases that are earth-moving, current-making, and complete, in an incomplete way. It is the symbol of the goddess, while the sun is the symbol of a god in a traditional masculine sense. They coexist in harmony-- without darkness, there is no light, and vice versa.
Every full moon, we get together to "close the CIRCLE." It is a beautiful time to celebrate the femininity and manifest our powers by doing banishment rituals- to talk about and burn anything negative we would like to be rid of in our lives. The act of writing them down, sharing them, and burning them, is the most powerful way to rid oneself of an undesired element in our lives. This ritual is a sacred force that predates any traditional scientific therapies, and is also the most natural and simple remedy one can do to heal their psyche. Traditionally, even group therapies sit around in a Circle. The symbolism of a circle from the full moon is a sacred language-- any information and secrets shared within the circle is treated with respect and utmost sensitivity.
