SLPS celebrated Midsummer Saturday, June 18, 2016. The members gathered on freshly cut grass, and under the grove of the pines at the temple. The sun was low in the sky, allowing for a cool evening. President Muad’Dib led the ritual in the New American tradition. The Oak and Holly Kings were present, as well as Hern and Perun. SLPS honors the transitioning of the year from the Oak King to the Holly King at Midsummer, as the sun’s zenith is reached and starts to descend to the longest night at Yule.

A dialogue about Midsummer, the path of the sun, and why it’s important to do solar rites took place. Some hand holding and dancing around the altar to the song “Litha” on the album Circle of the Seaons by Lisa Thiel allowed the members to raise energy. Some Midsummer poetry, Sign of the Daisy by Helen Hunt Jackson was read.

Perun, the patriarch of the Slavic pantheon, descended and spoke to everyone present. Perun rules over lightning, thunder, fire, oak, eagle and the ax or hammer. He gave a message of love, acceptance and inclusion, speaking about the forgotten myth, messages, and the simple ways of living like a Slav (bear meat, mushrooms, cabbage, the woods). He said how lonely he gets, with no one to talk with, no one patroning the pantheon like they once did. He encouraged everyone to love each person, work by the sun and moon, to embrace the messages of the ancient kindred, and to live simply as the Slavs did. He blessed them and accepted everyone into his family.  This message was a first, as SLPS welcomed him to the temple as a new God just arrived from the Czech Republic.

SLPS Hanukkah New Moon Dec 2015

Read Full Post »

Some magic and precision was needed after Thanksgiving. The members of SLPS met under the Full moon Saturday, November 28, 2015 at 8pm to call upon the maiden goddess Artemis, to lend them strength, clarity, and precision to achieve their goals. The full moon is a great time to work powerful rites of any type of magic, especially when they are in need.

Some folks take into account the astrological position of the moon in the signs, the type of seasonal moon, time of day, day of the week and month. All of which can be used to forward and empower the spells performed. This particular moon helped a few members re-empower themselves and ask for clarity to find their goals.

After the ceremony, a friendly game of monopoly was played, with Shy Fox winning with just two sets of property! Watch for those Scorpios, they will win in the end!

SLPS had a wonderful time participating in the Annual Interfaith Season as part of the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable. SLPS hosted an educational New Moon Ritual to Artemis, around the January new moon, at Dancing Cranes Imports Friday, January 16, 2015 from 5-7pm. 25 people showed to learn more about Wicca, Paganism and the Goddess Artemis. The ceremony included a drum circle and fire meditation. President Muad’ Dib and Woman Between the Wolves explained the items on the altar and answered questions about differences between Paganism and non Pagan traditions.

One question that came up right away was “What’s the difference between Wicca an Paganism?” President Muad’Dib commented “They’re the same thing. Paganism is the umbrella term for anything non Abrahamic.” He also discussed queerness in Paganism,  “We had a small discussion about why so many folks who are queer seem to be attracted to it. I stated that because it’s usually very accepting and how personal Pagan paths are is the big appeal. People want to do their own spirituality.”

The origins of Western Occultism were introduced by Woman Between the Wolves, “The foundation of a lot of the symbology of Neopaganism is in the Jewish mysteries of the Qabalah, the Tree of Life. It underlines much of the meanings for things like why the number 3 is a sacred number, the four quarters and their elemental associations, and the practice of ritualized, structured magic.”

After the questions, the drumming and guided meditation took place. The smokeless fire was used as a focus point while the beat of the drum and shaking of percussion instruments help people transcend. Everyone shared cookies and apple juice after offerings were given to the Goddess. Artemis blessed everyone present.

A few SLPS members gathered by the light of the Sturgeon full moon to plant herbs on Sunday, August 11, 2014. Dill, Thyme and Sorrel, were all sewed to the light of the moon, with chants of the Goddess and magic being woven. The pots were magically empowered with symbols and shapes.

A few of the core members gathered to honor Lugh on Saturday, August 2, 2014. This year’s Lughnasadh was small in comparison, due to schedules and other circumstances, regardless, Lugh was satisfied and happy to be honored and remembered with penis break and sausage gravy as the main offerings.

Lughnasadh is the traditional time for offering the first bread of the harvest, in which this year’s form they were penis bread. The foundations of the Sun and Moon temple were restored and the Angels welcomed back. A simple druid ceremony brought all the parts together before the close. The feast included grilled bratwursts in honor of Lugh, spinach salad and funeral potatoes.

The Gods are Happy! Everyone was blessed at Beltane this year, held on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 6pm.

The ritual opened with the usual banishings and circle protections and elemental callings. The altar was decorated in Beltane colors and Celtic Knotwork, symbolizing the eternal nature of the Gods and everyonekinds connection to them. A special commissioned painting by Kurt Shoopman of Kentucky of Ganesh and Pan in the great rite was the centerpiece, symbolizing the Queer nature of divinity and everyonekind.

With drumming and music, the wedding party entered the circle. The God was played by Lunar Oak Spirit and the Goddess was played by Woman Between the Wolves. The declarations of unity, blessings and love was followed by the great rite, with the blade entering the chalice, symbolizing the unity of the Goddess and God to each other as well as to everyonekind.

With the throwing of rice and the reading of Beltane poetry, president Muad’Dib performed a druid rite to Niwalen.  The dancing of the sacred dance around the newly made May Day Pole was next. After some confusion, the pace picked up and the weaving of a tight knotwork took place, to ensure the blessings and desires of everyone who dance till next Beltane.

The feastings included wine, spirits, ribs, steak, greens beans and mushrooms, scalloped potatoes, yellow rice and curry chicken, and three bean salad. Check out the photos below!
