About Us | Our Priestesses
Upcoming Priestess Appearances & Events
Born on Lunar Imbolc in 2010, Sisterhood of the Moon is a community of Empowered Sister-Queens and other humans of integrity meeting for rituals, classes, social gatherings, and other events. Our community is guided by our Code of Ethical Conduct.
Our Sisterhood Priestesses facilitate open circles that meet monthly for lunar magick, Goddess worship, solar magick, and/or other rites. Our founding circle—Women's Lunar Rites— continues to be open to women only. On Spring Equinox 2016, Priestess Sabrina Moon opened our doors and hearts to two new Sisterhood of the Moon circles: Solar Tribe and Honey Hive; she is the Presiding High Priestess for both of these circles. Solar Tribe rituals are open to all people of integrity—of all genders and ages—and take place at the Equinoxes, Solstices, and other High Holydays. Honey Hive shares ritual with adults and their children (under 13) of all genders for Beltane and Samhain. For those women who live away from the Bay Area or cannot participate in an in-person Women’s Lunar Rite, we offer the option of participating in our Distance Rituals.
Please note that you must be 18+ to join us unless attending with a parent or legal guardian.
We primarily meet at our High Priestess's home in Hayward, CA (East Bay). During times of fair weather, around Spring Equinox to Fall Equinox, we meet outdoors in our Sacred Grove. During times of inclement weather, after Fall Equinox to before Spring Equinox, we meet in our Sanctuary. Please dress accordingly! We can do no true magick if we are not physically comfortable.
Unless otherwise specified, our doors open at 7 p.m. and the circle is cast by 7:30 p.m. We hold the intention of finishing ritual by 9 p.m., leaving a social hour after the circle is open to share a potluck meal. We do not engage in lengthy check-ins during circle, so arriving on time and staying for the post-ritual potluck is highly encouraged as a way to get to know each other. About two weeks before each ritual (i.e., on the Dark Moon for Full Moon ritual, etc.), you will receive an email invitation to and instructions for that particular rite. Please RSVP individually for each ritual you plan to attend.
Several times per year, we may go on a "field trip" to do ritual at a sacred place such as a labyrinth or the Pacific Ocean. We may meet during the morning or daytime for these rituals—please check Our Schedule page to see if we are planning a ceremony that is not during the evening.
For this ninth year of circling together, through January 2019, our community is reading Jo Graham’s book, Black Ships. If you wish to deepen your spiritual practice with us, please read the pages assigned for each month and join our Community Chat List for a lively discussion. An Amazon link to this book is provided below.
We gather each year on or near the High Holyday of Imbolc for our Annual Imbolc Rite of Dedication and Initiation, and to celebrate our Sisterhood's birthday.
