Uniting in Thought and Action
The Power of the Circle by Madisyn Taylor

When we are in circle with others

the energy stays contained within the group giving back to all. 

There are many reasons for why a gathering of people in a circle is powerful. A circle is a shape that is found repeatedly throughout the natural world, and it is a symbol of perfection. We recreate this perfect shape when we join others to form a circle.

Being in a circle allows us experience each other as equals. Each person is the same distance apart from the next participant, and no one is seated higher than or stands apart from others in a circle. From tribal circles to the mythical round table of King Arthur, the circle has been the shape adopted by gatherings throughout history.The circle is acknowledged as an archetype of wholeness and integration, with the center of a circle universally understood to symbolize Spirit – the Source.

When a group of people come together in a circle, they are united. This unity becomes even more powerful when each person reaches out to touch a neighbor and clasps hands. This physical connection unites thought and action, mind and body, and spirit and form in a circle. Because a circle has no beginning and no end, the agreement to connect in a circle allows energy to circulate from one person to the next, rather than being dissipated into the environment.

Like a candle used to light another candle, the connection with spirit that results when one person joins hands with another is greater than if each person were to stand alone. People who take part in a circle find that their power increases exponentially while with the group. Like a drop of water rippling on the surface of a pond, the waves of energy produced in a circle radiate outward in circular motion.

While one person may act like a single beacon that emanates light, a circle of people is like a satellite dish that sends out energy. There is power in numbers, and when the commitment is made by many to face one another, clasp hands, and focus on one intention, their circle emanates ripples of energy that can change the world.

  • “Event”: Fall Equinox
  • Date: September 23 2015
  • Location: Northern Hemisphere
  • What does it Mean: Seasons are opposite on either side of the equator, so the equinox in September is also known as the “autumnal (fall) equinox” in the northern hemisphere. However, in the southern hemisphere, it’s known as the “spring (vernal) equinox”.
  • What happens during an equinox?
    The September equinox occurs the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from north to south. This happens either on September 22, 23, or 24 every year

Notes: 

  • The Fall Equinox is the first day of fall, we say goodbye to the long days of summer and say hello to the harvest of the season, being aware of our blessings and grateful for the abundance of Mother Earth.
  • Pagans/Wiccans celebrate Mabon at this time, giving thanks for all the wonders of Mother Nature… There are drum circles, rituals and celebrations… 🙂 We must now ready ourselves for the long dark days of the winter to come.

The international day of PEACE takes place on September 21 2013. As the title implies the intention is for the whole world to be at peace for one day… 

Every living being on this planet is connected.. And with the world population growing we need to all get along.. it’s not so hard if we can put EGO, GREED AND JEALOUSY aside. 🙂 

In the words of Spock…. “Live long and prosper”

SGC Admin would like to add to that… 

“live long and prosper in peace”
