Each month brings the opportunity for the members of the U of U Pagan Society to gather the drums and candles and welcome back the new moon into their lives! This past Saturday, August 18, 2012,  everyone gathered at president Daniel Cureton’s House to work new moon magic and meditate by a smokeless fire.

The drumming helped those present to trance into a state of higher consciousnesses and do journeyings to other realms to communicate with ancestors, spirits and deity. As the drumming rolled into the night, several members reported seeing ancestors and even the Goddess Isis! The high energy made it difficult for some to want to come back this corporeal realm.. they wanted to stay with the Gods! The Om meditation after the drums helped bring them back from those other blessed states.

The magic concluded with a few cleansing and charging of items as well as a healing spell for a fellow pagan under the weather. The Green Man made a visit and gave messages to each person after they were anointed with the power and blessing of the new moon.

Thanks to everyone who attended Junes’ New Moon Ritual/Drum Circle and Fire meditation. As usual ritual started out with magical workings but President Daniel Cureton instituted a new circle design that uses the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, Qabbalistic Cross and Rose Cross for protection. Arch angels were invoked as well as quarters and even a special circle of faeries attended as those present requested the tossing and blessings of the fae. Shortly after the dust was spread around the circle a large ring of fae poofed into circle, happy, cheering and excited to be with everyone.

Energies ran extremely high this circle. Lots of ancestors were reported being seen by president Cureton while drumming, Callista Dreamwalker and Ryc Pellum (top photo left and inside left) said that children wee heard singing and humming. Even a fire guest was present during the meditation.  UUPS is certainly grateful for all astral visitors and ancestors who helped the members set goals and find answers in their lives. The Goddesses blessings were upon everyone and thanks were given by offerings of double stuffed cookies and berry juice!

This past Friday December 18, 2009 brought the wonderful opportunity for UUPS to work with its newly formed offshoot group WANDS of Westminster College. A neo shamanic rite was performed by their leader, Christian under snow and full moon! A few members from both groups gathered on the south sound of the college at the amphitheater by a running rive to give honor and praise to father sky and mother earth. The crowning salute came with a drawn sword and refreshments of apple cider. UUPS can’t wait to work again with WANDS! Hail!
