Thanks to those who came and participated in the new moon ritual on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 8pm. A small circle as usual, those attended gathered by the drums and fire to once again draw down the power of the dark moon in their lives. Dark or new moons are times of diminished light and are periods helpful for meditation, chanting, transjourney workings, drumming, astral travel, banishings, cleansings, setting goals and any other inner workings that tap into the dark aspect of being, soul, the earth, moon and magic.

Those present reported seeing the ancestors when they were invoked by the black candle, talking with the Goddess, being at peace and coming away from the drumming and meditation fire with a renewed sense of center. Next up, is the full moon! Check out the photos below.

Thanks to all who came and made this “once in a blue moon” occasion extra special! On Saturday, Sept 1, 2012 at 8pm, with a crowd of nine, some UUPS members and a few guests gathered. The ritual started out with the usual calling in of deity and elementals to join our work. President Mu’adDib performed the druid grove open ceremony by proclaiming peace in the quarters and invoking Awen.

Next, those who needed to performed cleansing and charging magic before a welcoming of the new deities to the humble abode of the president. With drums, rattles, sistrums and other percussion instruments, the members and guests hailed and welcomed new gods and goddesses to the circle such as Apollo and Medusa! They certainly showed up, as everyone reported feeling the shivers up and down there spine the power the gods and goddesses bring.

A cleansing by the blue moon came after the welcoming. Everyone was consecrated with smoke from thurber by president Muad’Dib, then they washed their bodies ritually in a basin of water with sweet grass oil representing blood and spirit. President Muad’Dib lit a smokeless fire where he pulled in the Gods and Goddesses and nwyfre, the fire of life and the Earth.  The fire represented the fire within and the burning fire of blue moon. Hands were passed through the fire to give a sealing to the washings and consecrations. President invoked a blessing of Cerriwden, Arianrhod to empower the soul, Shiva to transform, Medusa to see past the physical, Justice to find wisdom, Apollo to see the light within, Ganesh to overcome and Isis to heal the body, mind and spirit of all. The end of the blue moon magic brought an anointing with a special blue moon lunar oil.

Cakes, ale and gratitude offerings were presented to the Goddesses and Gods before closing and dismissing the energy and the grove. The traditional Merry Meet and Merry Part chant finished the magic on this very special blue moon! President Muad’Dib gave everyone tarot readings for the coming month with his special Deviant Moon Tarot to ad an extra punch to the blue moon magic!

Each month brings the opportunity to work powerful magic and spells under the light of Diana. The moon is at full strength and freely gives her energy and light to those who call upon it.

This month those present worked with money, banishing and cleansing objects. President Muad’Dib drew down the moon on  Friday, July 15, 2011 to perform the magic necessary.

“I always feel so good afterwards. I love coming and participating in these rituals. In these, I feel the true spirituality of my practice. I feel the true craft. I see and understand what others have been talking about for centuries when they talked about the Craft and Magic. I can feel the gods and ancestors. I know they’re helping me and creating positive change in my life.” Said Fire Runner.

UUPS is looking forward to seeing everyone again next month under the light of the Moon
