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.
