If you are longing for a deeper relationship with the sacred in your everyday life, a container of beautiful sisterhood, and a sacred feminine spiritual “home”, we’ve been waiting for you. 


Join us for a year of devotion to living the spiral path and deepen into the divine nature of your soul in your daily life.


Celebrate the Wheel of the Year, the Lunar Cycles, and the Venus Cycle in 2024.


Together, we will celebrate the seasonal cycles of the Earth, the new and full phases of the moon, and the mysteries of the Sisterhood of the Rose through the Venus cycle.


There is nothing to fix here.  In this Temple, we nourish our hearts with the remembrance of our sovereign divinity, we gather in sacred space to listen more deeply to the voice of our soul and the messages of the unseen world, and we bless the world around us by walking as love in our everyday lives.


Join us and be held in a sisterhood of devotion and love. 

Join us as we enter into a new year in the quiet darkness between the Winter Solstice and Imbolc. 


If you have been following the cycles of the Moon and the Wheel of the Year and you are also longing for an even deeper relationship to your connection with the earth, the stars, the soul language of the unseen universe, and your inner divinity, please join us in Devoted.

For the full year of 2024, we will follow the Wheel of the Year and the Lunar cycles while we weave in even deeper magic by following the archetypal and initiatory sacred feminine journey of Venus.


On August 20, 2023, Venus rose in the sky as the Morning Star in the Astrological sign of Leo. Following the journey of Venus through the sky supports us in dropping into an ancient wisdom of a transformational cycle that humans have been following for thousands of years. The ancient Sumerians were the first to write down the archetypal transformation story of the Venus cycle through their story of the Goddess, Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth.  But many other cultures have told their versions of this story of transformation, descent, release, and ascent through the energy centers (chakras) of the body, and it is an ancient wisdom that is completely relevant to our modern lives.


This journey is also deeply connected to the rising of the divine feminine, the dismantling of the patriarchal structures in our culture, sisterhood wounds and witch wounds, Christ Consciousness, the Magdalene mysteries, and the Sisterhood of the Rose, and we will be exploring all of these connections together throughout our year of Devoted.


The cycle that began in August 2023 is the Leo Meta Goddess Cycle and is all about releasing what no longer serves us in order to step into our fully expressed, creative, sovereign selves with radical self-love. So, while this is a deeply personal journey, it is also a universal one, and gathering in sacred space to journey through the cycles together is incredibly powerful and assists each of us in amplifying both our own transformation and the universal transformation of the planet and humanity.

Because, one thing I know for sure is that while a Devoted spiritual practice can deeply nourish our souls and our hearts, it is without real meaning if we do not also turn that nourishment outward and ask- how can our personal, spiritual journey best serve our families, our communities,  and humanity?  This is something we will consistently explore together in Devoted.

Whether you are longing for a sacred feminine home for your spiritual practice, ready for radical self-love, or just desiring to be in a sacred and supportive community with other magical women, I hope you will join us in Devoted.

Do I need to understand the Lunar Cycles, Wheel of the Year, and Venus Cycle to enjoy these gatherings?
Whether you know a little, a lot, or nothing at all about these cycles, you can benefit from and enjoy the gatherings.. If you have been following a sacred feminine spiritual practice for some time, these events are an opportunity to deepen into your practice in sacred sisterhood.  If you are new to a sacred feminine spiritual practice, the lessons and companion guides in the membership will serve as both an introduction and a deepening to accompany you on your journey.

Where will I access the recordings of the online circles?
All of the recordings will be uploaded to a private, password protected page on my website and you will be emailed the link and password within 1-3 days following the event. 

Are these gatherings for me?

If you long to make your daily life more sacred and drop into a sacred container that helps to hold you in a rhythm for honoring the cycles of the earth, the moon, and the stars, these gatherings may be for you.

If you would enjoy sharing this experience with other women thie offers you the opportunity to be a part of a sacred community and enjoy the experience of deepening into your sacred path with a sisterhood of other women.


Why did I create the Moonwilde Temple?

I’ve spent the past five years deeply devoted to developing my own sacred feminine practice. These gatherings are my way of bringing all I have learned and practiced into a sacred container where you can find everything you need to create your own sacred system all in one place. I also know from my personal experience that sharing this journey with other sisters adds incredible depth and meaning to these practices.

Who is welcome at these gatherings?

Any sister who identifies as a woman—whether female-born or not—is welcome into this sacred space.

What if I have questions?

You are welcome to email Juli with any questions.
