A change and evolution. The new moons will now include a drum circle and meditation by smokeless fire! A few members met under the dark shadow of the new moon Monday, April 4, 2011 to celebrate the cycles of Luna and ask guidance for the coming month. Since new moons are about setting goals, the members burned old goals in the fire and set new ones to wax in fruition with the waxing moon. Cookies and juice were the offerings to Luna. Till next we meet!

President Muad’Dib had the unique opportunity to participate in an Ostara Ritual with our eastern brothers and sister in Rockingham, NC.

President Muad’Dib relates some of his experience, “I had the best time this past spring break. I drove up from Columbia, SC, where my parents live to Rockingham, NC, about a three hour drive up U.S. Hgwy 1 on Monday, March 21, 2011. I got there in time to meet up and drive ten minutes to a smaller town where the healing center was we would be renting for the space. We had an Easter egg hunt, in which I mowed everyone over and won, then we set up the five altars, one for each direction and the main altar, and waited for dark.  It got to be so late we finally had to bring them and do it.

The altars were so beautifully decorated with flowers, eggs and natural items. I was in the north and really loved using a dogwood branch for my wand. It still had the buds on it! I really enjoyed that. We listened as the high priestesses related the story of Ostara to us, then guided us into an egg for path working. We all meet the Green Main in front of an oak tree. We listened to what he had to say before leaving again. These are such great people!  We can learn a lot from the magic of the east!”

This past Friday, November 19, 2010, a few of the dedicated Harry Potter fans who are members of UUPS met at the Gateway theater in SLC, Ut to attend the premier of Part I of the Deathly Hallows. What an amazing event! UUPS members were not the only persons dressed to the T in proper wizarding regalia… a number of muggles turned up in hats and robes to show their support. Member Amber Hafen said “I was shocked and moved and can’t wait for the second one. The saddest part was when Dobby died. I couldn’t believe it! I was going ‘NOOOOO'”

President Muad’Dib said “This is one of the few times we can talk around and people don’t think we are just a bunch of weirdos in costume… right now we are just a bunch of people in costume!”

UUPS can’t wait for next year to attend the final end to the Epic Saga of love, magic, right, wrong and sparkly hats! Till next we meet!
