The Dark moon arrived upon us! SLPS members met under the dark moon to celebrate the Dark Goddess, set goals, and renew vows to continually walk the Goddess Path. The ritual was held Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 8pm, under the dark sky with snow on the ground. a drum circle a meditation fire happened after the magical workings, and with each beat of the drum and flick of the smokeless fire, the members present were sent on a meditative journey. Some conversed with ancestors, some talked with deities and some transcended the Earthly plane.

Thanks to all who came on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 8pm to the new moon ritual! We had a great time doing new moon magic, discussing upcoming activities and working with the ancestors. President Muad’Dib sported his new oak circlet made from brass. The mediation fire with the song “Shanti” from the album Elephant Power by MC Yogi has really made a difference in the ability for the members to center and release all negativity. The moon goddess accepted the offerings for the new month and blessed everyone to go forward with light and love!

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 Muad’Dib’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.

SLPS Members met on July 21, 2012 to honor the dark moon goddess and perform magical rites. This usually includes a meditation fire and drum circle. The act of creating sacred space is always primary, with the drumming and meditation used as focus points for trance work before honoring the Goddess 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 Muad’Dib 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 Muad’Dib while drumming, Callista Dreamwalker and Mustard Seed 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!

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!
