*not wheelchair accessible

Suggested donation $10—no one turned away for lack of funds. A portion of our collection will be donated to Trans Lifeline

People of any gender identity or none are welcome to join us to recognize and honor our Beloved Dead of non-conformist gender identities, calling in the creative friction of the gender-fluid deity; Paneris, of the Tetrad++, to transform our losses into raging beauty. We shall offer special remembrance to Trans people whose lives were taken—by the hands of others or by their own hands—in the past solar cycle. Held the evening after the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, at the end of the weeklong Transgender Ancestor Rite of Elevation, our intention is to charge our collective grief with fierce love and RELEASE it from all toxic bonds so that we may all move forward in our full powers. Bring names and photos of your Beloved Dead, small scraps of fabric, ribbons, feathers, and a treat to share for cakes and ale.

The Rainbow Moon Circle is a safe and sacred space for all to explore the spectrum of gender and identity. We honor the holistic experience of self-determined identity and its infinite intersections. We celebrate the glittering prism of Divine existence that is powerful, delightful,  enthusiastic, playful, transformative, magickal, compassionate, and reverent.
Live the Spectra!

The Rainbow Moon Circle offers rituals and sacred services which honor and celebrate the full spectra of gender diversity. Mark your calendars for our Winter ritual: February 27, 2016.

Blog Action Day Roundup

As members of CAYA (Come As You Are) Coven http://www.cayacoven.org many of us participated in Blog Action Day, each with our own perspective, experience, & approach, much as we approach our various spiritual practices. We hold each of our members’ divinity as inherent and non-negotiable. Despite our varied paths, we are unified in our commitment to equality for all living creatures. While we write in solidarity for anyone suffering #inequality today, we are more interested in what ways we can achieve more equality for tomorrow.

Tar Sand Inequality owl writes on how the Canadian government has allowed petroleum to be extracted from tribal lands in violation of treaty rights.

Call Me Ze Melissa writes about the power of names and naming, and how important it is to zir to have zir pronouns used.

Invisible Artists Rowan writes about how, "Art history is often revisionist history, as the value and contributions of women and people of color were dismissed or destroyed, and conspicuously omitted from the books and teachings of the day (and often still)."

Income Inequality Molly writes about the rise of income inequality in the U.S. and its widespread, damaging effects.

being white and a minority "is not possible in the U.S." begins Rabbit's piece on power, privilege, and race.

We hope you consider the many and varied ways #inequality effects us all.
