August brings the birthday of Krishna and so an offering to him was presented along with some chants by MC Yogi from his Elephant Power album.  A sacred fire was lit and some full moon drumming too place as part of meditations and relaxation after the long weekend and before classes officially start on Monday, August 26, 2013.  It was a spiritual evening under the blessing of the moon goddess.

Thanks to all the members and guests that came this past Saturday, February 23 2013 at 8pm for the Full Moon Ritual to Aphrodite. Those faithful and dedicated members trekked snow drifts, high winds and low visibility to give thanks to the Goddess of Love for all her blessings, especially in the month of February for Valentine’s Day. After clearing the space, shielding and proclaiming peace in the quarters, the elements, deities and ancestors were invoked to help work the magic of the night.

A special appearance by the Goddess was seen in the kitchen. The appearance was captured on camera by president Muad’Dib and the goddess can be seen with Lunar Oak Spirit as he pours his personal libation. Her reflection from the kitchen is seen in the mirror as she appears to be in saint form!

After the workings, the members enjoyed Jack Wagon Wheat Beer by Shades of Pale Brewing Co. out of Park City. Several hails, offerings and libations later, the gratitude ceremony came to a close with the traditional feasting on maple vanilla bean cookies and grape juice from Trader Joes.

Tarot readings commenced after the ritual, keeping the tradition alive to divine the future on the full moon. See you all next moon!

Thanks to all whom came on Saturday, December 29, 2012 at 8pm to the full moon ritual. This was the last moon of 2012 and right in the middle of Kwanzaa. The members of SLPS discussed ujamaa or community economics based in the Kwanzaan tradition. After lighting the Kinara everyone partook of the Kikombe Cha Umoja or the communal cup made from coconut~! A few spells were worked and offerings given to the moon goddess before closing. SLPS looks forward to the first moons of 2013!

Thanks to all whom came this past Saturday, November 24, 2012 at 8pm. A few members gathered around to celebrate and give thanks to moon goddess at her full power. Magic and spells, love and gratitude, spirits and energy were worked this night.

The first order of business brought a few small spells for charging and making new amulets of protection. The main ritual was a gratitude ceremony to Ganesh for all he has done for us. Some of the songs played and danced to included Elephant Power, Om and Son of Shiva all by MC Yogi on his album Elephant Power. Some of the members rang bells and clapped while others shook percussion instruments for Ganesh. Ganesh himself was seen wiggling his ears and joining in the fun!

November’s full moon brought a special time for one of the members of SLPS. Ember Fire, the beloved advertising director happened to have been born on this auspicious day! With cake, card, candles and flower, the group gathered around her and sang and gave special birthday wishes and love. The benefit of Pagan birthdays besides all the goodies, is that the candles can be washed, cleaned and stored away until they are needed for wishing magic!

With the birthday over, the ritual came to a close and the cake portioned out. Woman Between the Wolves, SLPS adviser made a homemade white cake with chocolate frosting…delicious! Afterwards, the party continued with a viewing of To Wong Foo: Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar!

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
