Posts Tagged ‘full moon’

With the coming of each month, brings the coming of a new moon cycle. This past month brought an extra powerful full moon. It wasn’t just any moon, but a full moon doubled with a lunar eclipse! Lots of magic was worked this night on June 15, 2011. Cleansing, prosperity and other spells were done as the universe was in a place to grant powerful blessings. Even a few spiritual awakenings happened on this eve. Till the next month, the next full moon. See you all then under Luna’s hand of grace and delight!

Hi folks,

What a great month in February as we saw and heard the Goddess Brigid!! March is the time for us to see our fellow Pagan brothers and sisters at Utah State University Pagan Alliance in Logan. They are putting on a spring Holiday, Liberalia, a Roman Spring, in honor of Liber Pater and Libera! He traditionally is a God of fertility, vegetation and wine and this day marked adolescent boys of 14 to maturation into manhood. This is a time of sacrifice, song, and hanging masks on trees! I hope you all can attend the celebration and give honor to Liber Pater and Libera.

Since USUPA is doing a spring holiday, UUPS will not put on a ritual.  This is our time to visit and attend USUPA

UUPS believes its important to reach out to the community and build ties, whether it be with the University of a local business or organization. As such, its time we start thinking about our semester volunteering!

This month is the U’s spring break, so we’ll all be taking the 21-25 off from school, so there will be no weekly meeting those two Sundays (March 20th and 27th).

Also check out the upcoming events page to see a list of all UUPS Events and Classes! Updated Monthly!

So now that everyone has settled in, lets dig in! Brigid is about to arrive as this month we have Imbolc as well as a new and full moon we are doing. About average activity for a group this size. We are in the works of getting speakers from the community and one big speaker——- Oberon-Zell Ravenheart in September. We would like to bring him in for Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day 2011. He has sent us the break down of his cost and what he requires, and to say the least, we are going to have to pull the larger community of salt lake together to cover the 30 % of the expense and 50 % of his travel. The University will cover 70 % of the cost of everything outside travel. His one day fee is $500.00 and he requires a driver and three meals a day and a booth for selling his items.. So if you haven’t got the feeling,… its going to be a lot of work to bring him in and have it all work out without calamity befalling us!! What are some of your ideas about OZ? Should we try and invite him to speak or lead a ritual? Email us and let us know or reply with your ideas on the discussion on Facebook or our website.

Volunteering: It is our goal to have one volunteering activity per semester (at least). We are planning that now, do you have an idea for spring 2011 volunteering project? Email us or reply on facebook and the website!

Sundays: Weekly meeting at the Beehive Tea Room in Salt Lake City (12 w 300 s) at 11:00 am. This is the important place where everyone can pool together. This is also where we do our planning and finalize events! Please come and voice your ideas.

Needed: Students!! We need more student participation and activity.

Needed: Volunteers for posting fliers around Salt Lake valley. There are many places that have cork boards that allow posting such as coffee shops and grocery stores. If you are willing to post a few while you are out in town, please email us and let us know so we can get those fliers to you!

Needed: Carpooling– there are a fair amount of members who live far away and have difficulty attending meetings and activities because of lack of perosonal/ UTA transportation to the areas where they live. There is a place on facebook to post a replies and coordinate carpooling/ transportation.

Have a wonderful Imbolc!

Bright Blessings!

All who know the secrets of Rolling, know that Harry has finally grown up, and is fulfilling his destiny as we speak! As for the big event, UUPS is going to the premier of Harry Potter!

Currently:  We are in the process of setting up a volunteering activity for the semester.  UUPS wants to put one volunteering (at least) event each term including summer.

New Groups:  We are working with several people to form a group at SLCC, Salt Lake Community College.  If you would like to be involved, please contact the National Pagan Society, the off shoot of UUPS for this type of things exactly.    Contact: Nationalpagansociety@gmail.com and let us know! (or UUPS, either works)

Bright Blessings to all!

Hi folks,

The new moon has passed, and the goddess shines her face again on us. UUPS will be doing its monthly full moon for everyone interested. We’ll be at the same spot in Big Cottonwood Canyon as the fall equinox.  Plan on meeting at the 711 on the corner of 6200 s and Big Cottonwood Canyon Rd and driving up to the site.  This will be after our Fall Equinox ritual that day. Please come celebrate the Goddess with us and recharge your life for another month!

Well This is was our first official activity. Kassie Cressall from Logan even joined us, bringing the whiskey! She is in the process of starting a pagan student group at Utah State University in Logan and is getting some tips on how to do things. With 7 people joining us today, we are off to good numbers after getting started only 6 months ago! We went over to the Secretaries house on Saturday, April 1, 2010 for a beautiful Ostara ritual led by Muad’Dib giving honor to the Goddess Ostara herself for whose day it was! We divined our future with boiled Easter eggs, had a wonderful chicken salad and cake and topped it off with throwing wild flowers on the barren parts of the land!

Afterward was a full moon ritual. Everyone who came brought an item to be cleansed and recharged. Everyone left feeling recharged and renewed after pulling down the energy of the Full moon.

We hope to have many more such activities so everyone can get to see what pagans do!

See you all then
