Who and What is the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel?

The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel is a legally recognized Wiccan non-profit religious organization based in the Mid-Atlantic region. The form of Wicca that the Assembly practices is syncretic and draws inspiration from Astrology, Qabala, the Western Magickal Tradition and the folk religions of Europe. Keepers of the Holly Chalice, the founding coven of the Assembly began its life in February of 1984. The Assembly was incorporated in the state of Delaware in 1993 and was granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS in 1995.

Why a Chalice of Living Stars?

The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel is astrologically based in its structure. There are twelve Circles within the Assembly, one for each of the signs. Each Circle contains within it four Covens. Each Coven bears one of the elemental tools (east/air/sword, south/fire/staff, west/water/chalice, north/earth/pentacle).

As the eighth Assembly coven to come into existence, Chalice of Living Stars takes the Chalice as its elemental tool. The Chalice represents emotion, psychic work, healing, and creativity. The Living Stars refer to the Pleiades, the constellation also often known as the Seven Sisters, and is also an echo of the Star Goddess as well as a reminder that “everybody is a star.”

Our Coven Sigil

To the right on each page is an image of our coven sigil. The seven pointed star refers back to the Pleiedes and to the Star of Faerie. The sigil for Aquarius refers to our coven being in the Circle of Aquarius. The crescent moon refers to the element of Water, our coven being the Water coven within the Circle of Aquarius. Our coven colors are blue, violet, and silver. Violet stands for the sphere of Yesod, the sphere of the Moon and the Astral on the Tree of Life. The Turquoise blue you see is the color used by all the Assembly covens as a uniting color. The silver refers back again to both water and to the Moon.
