Who We Sponsor and Support


Welcome to the web page of the Temple of the Dark Moon. We are an active "progressive" Alexandrian coven located just 20 minutes north of Adelaide's CBD in South Australia. We follow the initiatory degree system found within traditional Wicca as well as other ethics central to this religious and spiritual path. We also include other spiritual and magickal practices within our workings in order to assist with the individual spiritual growth of each member.

Amongst the pages of our web site, we offer some general introductory information about Paganism, and in particular how it relates to traditional initiatory Wicca, as well as information specifically connected to the Southern Hemisphere. We offer a variety of training for those who are interested in learning our ways, or who wish to gain a deeper connection with the natural world around them through the ancient earth-centric mysteries.

If you are new to, or would like to find out some more information about Wicca and Paganism in general, we recommend you read Paganism: Different Religion, Similar Belief and Is Wicca the right Spiritual Path for Me?

We also recommend reading Teachers of the Craft from Witches Voice if you are looking for a Wiccan teacher/mentor as it provides some good advice for the novice seeker. Similarly, you can contact our own High Priestess.

(Monday, 5 January 2015)

The annual "Blessing of the Waters" at Grange Beach will be taking place on Monday , 5 January 2015. We will be meeting on the grassed area in front of the Grange hotel (look for the purple Temple of the Dark Moon banner) around 7:30pm before moving down to the foreshore.
All participants are to bring an organic offering for Yemaya (flowers, crystal, seashell, pebble) and a white scarfe (if you have one).

This is a free community event hosted by the Temple of the Dark Moon.

CALL OF THE GOD - Anthology

Call of the God: An Exploration of the Divine Masculine within Modern Paganism is a proposed anthology seeking to capture the role of the God within modern Paganism through exposure of myth, magick, ritual, artwork and personal experiences.

Lurking amongst the shadows, slipping through our nightmares, teasing our peripheral vision, or simply crashing into our ordered lives, the Pagan God makes His presence felt in many ways.

From prehistoric paintings to the mystical wilderness of Arcadia, the power of the Pagan God can still be felt in this modern age as the beat of His hooves upon the earth entice us to reclaim the true power of the Divine Masculine.

Call of the God: An Anthology Exploring the Divine Masculine within Modern Paganism is a unique smorgasbord of essays, poems, fiction and artwork depicting the numerous manifestations of the God and how the Divine Masculine is depicted within modern Paganism around the world.

This anthology includes works from: * Michael Howard (editor of The Cauldron as well as some 38 books), * Pete Jennings (past Pagan Federation president and author of books including Blacksmith Gods and Heath Paths), * Anna Franklin (author of 30 books and decks including The Pagan Ways Tarot, The Sacred Circle Tarot, Herbcraft, Lughnasa, Midsummer and Familiars), * Tony and Candia McKormack from British Pagan band Inkubus Sukkubus, * Shauna Aura Knight (mixed media artist and author), * Polly Lind (New Zealand based tapestry artist), * Peter Coughlin (writer of poetry, fiction and non-fiction), * Patrick Larabee (artist and author of Whisperings from the Void), * Rev Christian Ortz (author of Reiki Lunar and founder of the Mexican ezine El Caldero-Espiritualidad de la Tierra (The Cauldron-Earth Spirituality).

Other contributors include: Adam Hearn, Michael Vickery, Rebecca Buchanan, Fabienne S.
