(3) Full moon ritual. (4) A gathering for ritual work, generally during the full or new moon. (5) The monthly meeting of Witches to celebrate the Full or New Moon. Most Witches use the term "Circle," rather than Esbat, and many groups meet more than once a month. The meeting is much like the weekly celebrations you might have at a church.
