Magic is real. "It’s palpable and powerful, and it occurs when women gather in safe and sacred circles to share what's REALLY going on inside of their hearts...Together we create this sacred container to share what’s on our hearts and bring our intentions into focus. Whatever it is you’re working on,
no matter how dark or scary, you’re invited to bring it into Circle.
Compassion will be waiting for you there. Your sisters will honor your truth and trust in your wisdom and capacity to navigate your own life.
In Circle, you become the speaker and the listener, the wise woman and the little girl, the leader and the follower, the healer and the healed. When you’re able to lean into this, trust your ability to face any situation life presents, and know you have the support of your sisters... you can do anything. BE anything.
You sense that you are already whole. Because you are.." ~UNIFY
The Global Sisterhood launched onInternational Women’s DayMarch 8, 2016. For March 8th, 2017 there were 1000 Sister Circles in over 70 countries!
"THERE IS NO GREATER POWER FOR CHANGE THAN
A COMMUNITY TAKING ITS FUTURE INTO ITS OWN HANDS."~Margaret Wheatley
"People in rural America should use every legal means available to protect themselves. But, they must also find ways to change our laws—including changing those who make our laws, if necessary. People must come together—farm and non-farm, rural and urban—as communities of necessity with a common interest and commitment to stopping the economic colonization of their communities."

THE FULL MOON
FIRST FULL MOON IN MARCH
March 1st~ Full Moon in Virgo This full moon instant comes on March 2, 2018, at 00:51 Universal Time. For North America and Hawaii, that means the moon turns precisely full this evening –
on March 1, 2018 – at 8:51 p.m. AST, 7:51 p.m. EST, 6:51 p.m. CST, 5:51 p.m. MST, 4:51 p.m. PST, 3:51 p.m AKST and 2:51 p.m. HST. ~More from EarthSky "The full moon being in Virgo only adds to heightened tensions as it causes us to seek perfection, look for mistakes, and to criticize rather than chill out with our expectations and understand that we aren’t flawless ourselves. That said, we also deserve to be treated respectfully, so if people are consistently putting us down or taking advantage, this Virgo air will illuminate all that’s harmful in our lives and encourage us to surround ourselves with those who pull us up rather than down." ~Elephant Journal
THE SECOND FULL MOON IN MARCH WILL OCCUR ON MARCH 31st.
"The occurrence of two full Moons in January (none in February)
followed by two in March takes place approximately four times every century."

Peak into the History of Women who Served
Just in time for Women’s History Month, the forthcoming issue of NEA Arts focuses on women artists and arts leaders who inspire, galvanize, and encourage us. One of the women we interviewed was Susan Fisher Sterling, the director of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. As a preview to our issue, we’re publishing an excerpt from our conversation, where Sterling responded to the question, “What do you think we can be doing to better address the challenges women in the art world face today?” Her answers at Five Ways to Support Women Artists.
