Group Description

Waxing Moon Circle is a working/training Wiccan Circle that meets in the Santa Clara area. Founded in Palo Alto in 1982, WMC meets the first Saturday after each Dark Moon.(We occasionally adjust our meeting date in case of conflicts).

Our Tradition is somewhat similar to British Traditional Wicca. We welcome guests to many of our activities.

Please Note! This is not an online discussion group. It is of interest only to those attending our events: members, students, and friends of Waxing Moon Circle. Therefore, membership is not automatically granted to all who request it.

We screen the list, so please be specific in telling us the reasons you want to join. All requesting to join this mailing list will receive an introductory questionnaire. Membership requests without introductions are routinely denied, and those with no info in their Yahoo IDs are viewed with suspicion. New members are moderated.

Our email list is purged every Samhain. Most non-members of the Circle are dropped then, unless they have been participating in the group's activities as a guest.


Circle Night:

5:00 Doors open for Potluck
6:00 Ritual discussion and set-up.
8:00 Ritual

Attire: Robes, festive attire, or comfortable street clothes are welcome.

Please arrive bathed and groomed: unlike some traditional covens, we do not include a ritual bath on the premises. Also: No shoes and no smoking inside, please! Thank you.

Based on the the U.S. Naval Observatory's table of Moons, with adjustments for the difference between Pacific Standard Time and Universal Time(aka GMT), here are some upcoming meeting dates:

January 24: Regular Circle meeting

Please note that these dates may not match those given in many desk and pocket calendars, most of which are based on Eastern Standard Time.

Other Activities:
Please see our calendar.
