4/30/18 MOONTHLY FULL MOON CIRCLE Hosted by Kara & Bianca. 7-8:30pm, $5-$10 sliding scale.  April’s Full Moon in Scorpio is known as the Pink Moon by Algonquin Native American tribes and the Peony Moon in Chinese tradition. The April Full Moon illuminates Scorpio’s shadows in the midst of Taurus season’s sunshine and flowers. The circle will be a gentle invitation to dive deep and deliver loving, luminous healing to our subconscious mind. As a group, we will explore the 13 cards of the Thoth Tarot Deck which represent shadow aspects of the self through discussion, creative journaling, and guided meditation. You may wear a pink item of clothing or accessory to celebrate the energy of the pink moon, and bring an item to place on the full moon altar.

5/1/18 ASTROLOGY HOUR: AIR & FIRE SIGNS Hosted by Stevie, Julia and Amanda. 7-8:30pm, $5-$10 sliding scale.  This month we will start our series on the elemental associations! In this meet-up we will discuss the 6 zodiac signs within the elements of Fire and Air. Learning the elements helps us to understand the character and personality of each sign. Signs of the same element will share similar characteristics. The elemental associations will allow for a deeper understanding of your natal chart and how the different elements affect us differently. Comment in the event with your birth date, time and location (city,state) and send your payment to paypal.me/SHbees.  Please have your birth date, time and location (city,state) with you at the event, as well as a laptop, tablet or smartphone.

5/8/18 CRYSTALS 101: QUARTZ Hosted by Kara.  7-8:30pm, $10-$15 sliding scale.  Do you find yourself drawn to crystals, gems, and minerals? Have you ever wondered if that attraction means more than visual appeal? In this workshop, we will discuss origins, history, and uses of the crystal Quartz, and how to use it and other crystals to amplify or simplify the energy of your environment, your rituals, and your personal energy. Participants will walk away with an Quartz specimen and enough information to begin incorporating the crystal into their daily lives as a companion, tool, and gift for others.

5/16/18 PLANETARY DEITIES: MERCURY Hosted by Bianca. 7-8:30pm, $10.  Join us for the second of a series of workshops on planetary deities.

The workshop will close with a guided meditation. Wear an orange accessory or item of clothing in honor of Mercury, and an item to place on the Mercury altar if desired. Attendees will receive a complimentary bag of Mercury incense.

5/29/18 FULL MOON GODDESS CIRCLE: ARTEMIS **Please note this event takes place at the CASCADES PARK WATERFALL SHELTER at 2851 N. Old State Road 37** Hosted by Elizabeth & Kara.  7-9pm, $10.  Artemis is well known as the virgin goddess of wilderness and wild animals, child birth, and the Moon. However, have you ever thought of her as patroness to something as vague and enormous as “transition”? In this circle under the Full Moon, we will explore Artemis’s association with transition and protection. We will discuss how she is a protector in myth and antiquity. We will discover how she can guide us through our own transitions today. Finally, we will give an offering to Artemis because as you will learn, she refuses to be left out! This event is open to anyone interested in learning about the goddess within them. Sunrise Hive Bees events are welcoming of women, femmes, gender diverse, queer, and POC. This event will be outside, so please dress appropriately!
