Circle of the Moon and Stars is an inclusive gathering of earth-centered UU and pagan individuals. We gather together to create change in the world and within ourselves through ritual, music, and spellcraft. Our diversity of belief and experience is our strength—all are welcome within our Circle.

After a long Covid hiatus, the Circle of the Moon and Stars is back to offering in-person classes and rituals in the Sanctuary. Join us at one of these upcoming events!

New moons have long been a time for renewal, reflection and for planting new seeds and new ideas. Whether you’re looking for the insights that come from the deep well of the subconscious or setting an intention for a new goal or personal change, the new moon is a great time to do it. Dress comfortably, no materials are needed but if you’d like to, bring a notebook for journaling. If weather permits we may hold our session outside.
