The wheel has turned and Samhain, known to non magical folks as Halloween is upon us. The Celtic new year is a time for renewing commitments, setting goals and honoring the dead.

This year’s Samhain is a special one since UUPS picked up the Sun Stave Staff and will be hosting Sun Stave for Samhain. Part of this year’s Samhain will consist of drinking to the new year, a druid rite, wiccan death ceremony of Cernunnos, and calling in the dead or ancestors to deliver messages from the other realm, help their living loved ones improve and move forward in their lives.

Please bring an item or photo of a loved one that has passed. There will be a separate ancestral table to set them on. This ritual will included heavy emotions, be prepared to see those beyond the grave. Feast will be after as usual. Dress warmly and if able, please bring a seasonally appropriate dish.

Address: 7455 Parkridge Cir, SLC UT 84121
**** Here are some helpful tips for food ****

If you can, please think beyond bringing chips and salsa for your food contribution. 🙂 We have paper plates, plastic forks and spoons and plastic cups and two microwaves for re-heating items. If you are allergic to cats, be aware that the house is owned…errrr shared by 11 of those feline beasties: plan accordingly with your meds.

Ideas and suggestions for seasonal foods include: steamed carrots, pumpkin pie, garlic mashed potatoes, chicken (rotisserie or otherwise), soups (for example winter squash soup) macaroni & cheese, rice pilaf, enchiladas, other casseroles. Remember our vegetarian sisters & brothers, but think beyond the “vegetable platter.”

Psychic, tarot, and mediums all around! That’s what the crowd was like at the Church of the Sacred Cirlce’s Psychic fair that took place this past Saturday, October 13, 2012 on site at their Temple in West Valley.  The yurt was set up with small tables and chairs  allowing for a total of five readers and mediums. At about 3:30, the crowds started flocking in for tarot themes ranging from fairy to samhain!

Mid evening brought relief as the crowds slowed and allowed for some stretch time by the psychics. Vending supplies was provided by Jared and Libby of the Celtic Bazaar, a local traveling pagan shop. Most people can’t wait till next years Psychic fair! Check out the pics below of the CSC altars, yurt and event!
