SLPS met on Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 9pm to honor the goddess of America, Columbia. The altar was decorated with Independence Day decorations (for July 4th). Pomegranate wine and apricots off one of the society trees were offered. Stars and Stripes Forever, one of the most patriotic American marches by John Philip Sousa was played as members danced around the altar with flags and pinwheels. We asked the Goddess to watch over the USA, guide the political leaders to be favorable for civil liberties, and offered thanks to the Native Americans who continue to grant the white people favorable passage on their lands (i.e, the USA).

The new moon was upon us! SLPS met under the watchful eye of Artemis on Saturday, August 15, 2015 at 10pm, to meditate, set goals, and welcome back a member who had been away for the summer. The ritual was dedicated to the new moon goddess of the hunt, Greek Artemis. Her arrows will hit the target of our goals and let them wax full as the moon does. The offerings included Martinelli’s apple cider and chocolate, in honor of Piggy’s return from India. Midnight Moon chili was the after ritual treat for Piggy, being one of her favorite dishes.

Thanks to all whom came to the new moon ritual/drum circle and meditation fire this past Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 8pm.

The first order of magic was to finish up the Hanukkah celebrations! It being the last night of Hanukkah, the eighth candle was lit. The full and majestic power of the collective memory and history of the Jews and Maccabees descended on SLPS. Much gratitude could be felt for keeping the tradition alive.

Very quickly did the ancestors show up when they were invoked. Apparently they had much needed information for those present at the ritual. The ritual opened with the usual welcoming of the new moon and the lighting of the black candle before the mirror of fate. The drum circle brought journeying and out of body experiences as well as a connection with the divine.

After the fire died down, the grounding, center and peace meditation started. Being guided by president Muad’Dib, the members breathed in, chanted om and released all negativity to the calming song of Shanti by MC Yogi on his album Elephant Power. This particular song has a powerfully and accurate centering effect when doubled up with a continuous Om. Lunar Oak Spirit did reiki on everyone present to help increase the releasing and centering process.

Each month brings the opportunity for the members of the U of U Pagan Society to gather the drums and candles and welcome back the new moon into their lives! This past Saturday, August 18, 2012,  everyone gathered at Muad’Dib’s House to work new moon magic and meditate by a smokeless fire.

The drumming helped those present to trance into a state of higher consciousnesses and do journeyings to other realms to communicate with ancestors, spirits and deity. As the drumming rolled into the night, several members reported seeing ancestors and even the Goddess Isis! The high energy made it difficult for some to want to come back this corporeal realm.. they wanted to stay with the Gods! The Om meditation after the drums helped bring them back from those other blessed states.

The magic concluded with a few cleansing and charging of items as well as a healing spell for a fellow pagan under the weather. The Green Man made a visit and gave messages to each person after they were anointed with the power and blessing of the new moon.

Thanks to everyone who attended Junes’ New Moon Ritual/Drum Circle and Fire meditation. As usual ritual started out with magical workings but President Muad’Dib instituted a new circle design that uses the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, Qabbalistic Cross and Rose Cross for protection. Arch angels were invoked as well as quarters and even a special circle of faeries attended as those present requested the tossing and blessings of the fae. Shortly after the dust was spread around the circle a large ring of fae poofed into circle, happy, cheering and excited to be with everyone.

Energies ran extremely high this circle. Lots of ancestors were reported being seen by president Muad’Dib while drumming, Callista Dreamwalker and Mustard Seed said that children wee heard singing and humming. Even a fire guest was present during the meditation. UUPS is certainly grateful for all astral visitors and ancestors who helped the members set goals and find answers in their lives. The Goddesses blessings were upon everyone and thanks were given by offerings of double stuffed cookies and berry juice!

A change and evolution. The new moons will now include a drum circle and meditation by smokeless fire! A few members met under the dark shadow of the new moon Monday, April 4, 2011 to celebrate the cycles of Luna and ask guidance for the coming month. Since new moons are about setting goals, the members burned old goals in the fire and set new ones to wax in fruition with the waxing moon. Cookies and juice were the offerings to Luna. Till next we meet!
