SLPS meeting under sacred pine on Monday, September 21, 2015 at 9pm to celebrate the Fall Equinox. The crickets were in unison, the breeze calm as the altar was dedicated and the candles lit. Ganesh and Bast joined the circle of the ancestors and took in the offerings of pears, watermelon, juice and cookies. Mabon being the second harvest, the fruits were pulled from the Society Garden.

The ritual included music by Lisa Thiel, “Mabon” off the album Circle of the Seasons. Spoken word and poetry were performed in honor of the seaons. Bast and Ganesh came down and spoke to the attendees and accepted the food. He will open the way for individuals to succeed in their inner workings. Each person chose a habit to banish in the Mabon fire.

The feast afterwards with the Gods was beef and barely stew with oreo bards for dessert. A bowl was left out for the Gods to enjoy.

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!
