Please join Come As You Are Pagan Congregation as we celebrate the turning of the wheel, emerging from the darkness to bring forth growth within ourselves, our community and our world. We will be honoring Persephone, and the changes  she brings within each new experience in this life. She is new green shoot, sprouting up from the fertile void, just as this community is rebirthing itself anew. During our festival, we will be prophesying for the Wheel of the Year ahead.  

This ritual marks the formal Dedication of our Aspirant class; talented and focused practitioners now completing their year of study. We will also be honoring our new Council members and Advanced Wildflower Initiates. 

Please feel free to bring drums, rattles, shakers, and anything you wish to charge on the altar. Clearly labelled contributions to our cakes and ale offerings are also welcome.

Celebrate the Full Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo 2018

Wednesday, January 31 is the Full Moon in Leo, the second Full Moon within the month of January and therefore a Blue Moon. It is also a total Lunar Eclipse, the first Blue Moon Eclipse in 150 years. It is a powerful time both to accept the truth of our own shadow and to face the reality of our own radiance, realizing that true pride and true humility are the same thing - knowing who you are.

In CAYA, we are celebrating the Silent Moon - How can we find silent time to restore and regenerate our enthusiasm for our lives/work/relationships?

Celebrate the Full Moon in Cancer 2018

Tuesday, January 2 is the Full Moon in Cancer, a time to let our hearts swell with grand hopes and naïve desires, feeling the full scope of our own longings even when they are painful, and embracing the power of our sincerest intentions, even while knowing that we may fall short of fulfilling them. It’s time to stop shriveling ourselves to fit into the limited, distorted space we have been allowed to grow into, and instead re-shaping the world like a green sprout breaking through a concrete sidewalk, tender but unstoppable!

In CAYA, we are celebrating the Yearning Moon - What desires, deep within, are yearning to be fulfilled, and how might we begin to take steps toward fulfilling them?
