The members of the society met under moon and night on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 8pm to give thanks to the moon goddess for her continued support and blessings. Full moon chicken tacos were prepared for the members who are practicing their kitchen magic skills.

February’s moon is known as the snow moon as the heaviest snow fall and cold comes during the month. Quan Yin was honored as the mother goddess in the full aspect.

What a wonderful Yule celebration! The members of SLPS met on Friday, December 21, 2012 at 7pm to feast with the Gods and Goddesses and prepare for the new year. A little unorthodox, the feast came first to prepare everyone for the long hours of ritual ahead. Mole enchiladas, vegan lentil soup, vegetarian lasagna and chicken were just a few things on the menu.

The altar was decorated with deity statues, red and white candles, altar stand with Gaia atop, pictures, stones, offering bowl and more. The She-Hawk’s Nest was built in front of the altar in the shape of an egg using pine boughs  Each person took a turn curling up in the next, releasing personal problems, goals, desires and announcing the birth of new ones to take the place of the old, much like the birthing of the new Yule King. When they emerged they were given salt to taste the bitterness of death.

After the nesting, everyone lined up to be pulled through the birthing canal. Each took a turn being pulled between all sixteen people. At the end, Iyata Bond was waiting with a drop of honey so that all could taste the sweetness of the birth.

A short break with root beer floats was for a light snack and right at 12am and at the end of the Maya calendar, President Muad’Dib commenced the Maya rite with the Earth Goddess Ixchel. She blessed everyone with sacred earth and blessings.

The closing came with a druid ceremony to the God Hu and the dismissing of the quarters.

Afterwards, there were reports of voices, spirits, ancestors and high emotions during the nesting and other rites. Many tears flowed this night!

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!
