SLPS had an amazing time at the 2015 Utah Pride Festival June 4-7, 2015. The Society got in gear by changing up its logos for Pride month, celebrating the diversity of all individuals. Some new swag with the new rainbow logo got the members in the mood and excited about reading tarot and palm at the festival.

Saturday, June 6, 2015, brought the opening at 3pm. A steady line of folks popping in to take advantage of the $10 readings and free buttons and books wasn’t deterred by the heavy but brief storm and hail that passed over the festivities around 5pm. The Merqueen Lei Loni Tilley from the Mermaid of the Great Salt Lake was seen in full tail giving mermaid readings at the booth and around the festival grounds at the fountains.

Sunday, June 7, 2015 SLPS paraded down 200 S with the interfaith section of the parade in front of the big rainbow flag. Sikhs were spotted at the begging the route at 400 E and 200 S, offering “Take a pic with a Sikh”and free Pepsi drinks. With cheers and kisses and hearts overflowing, the crowd was overjoyed to see Pagans and mermaids taking up the rear. President Muad’Dib, in rainbow robe and pointy hat (made for him for the 2014 festival by Woman Between the Wolves), was so liked by the crowd, he yelled to the people “I’m the wizard at the end of the rainbow!” Back at the festival after the parade, members sported the new pride shirts. Swells of people descended on the booth, asked for information on Paganism and took all the free books Paganism: An Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions by River and Joyce Higginbotham on the information table. adorned with Herne, being given away by SLPS (much like free Bibles). A few skeptics rolled by, but they were dragged in and converted to believers!

This year was its best year yet for SLPS! Many people took away needed spiritual advice, friendship, love and magic after each reading. Many expressed their gratitude to having the Pagan presence and knowing that there are Pagans who believe in LGBT rights, equality, equity, and fairness for all peoples.

SLPS had a great time helping Church of the Sacred Circle at their 2015 Spring psychic fair “Rite of Spring” on Saturday, May 8, 2015 from 4-8 pm. Even though it was a rainy and overcast day, the fair was busy with patrons coming for tarot, angel, astrological, and palm readings. Some came for healing, others to find their destiny, with question about school, work, and love. President Muad’Dib had a great time reading palms and using his Deviant Moon Tarot.

SLPS had a great Plazafest at the University of Utah Student Union! President Muad’Dib read tarot for free with his Deviant Moon Tarot deck for about 20 people on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at the U’s Spring Plazafest, which is the U’s version of “club rush” for the first week of each semester. Most people who get their cards read are first timers, or had only had them done once or so in the past. The free tarot is a great way to connect with new people and to help others spiritually by showing them a snapshot of their lives at that moment.

SLPS read the Tarot for Crimson Nights at the University of Utah on Friday, August 29, 2014 from 9pm-Midnight. Crimson Nights, put on by the Union Programming Council (UPC) really enjoyed the SLPS tarot the last time and invited us again to read. Students lined up immediately and the line stayed full the entire night, with several students stating they waited 45 minutes to an hour for a reading (and that’s with three readers!). People continued to line up, even after the sign was taken down. SLPS hopes to do it again at the next Crimson Nights!

This past weekend has been a very busy but successful one for SLPS! Things kicked off on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at 7pm with the Utah Pride Interfaith Coalition’s Interfaith service at Wasatch Presbyterian church. SLPS adviser April love read the “Who is Pagan” remark, quoting the Charge of the Star Goddess by Ann Moura and President Muad’Dib gave a five minute discussion that all people are deserving of unconditional love, all are divine, and that everyone can have a one-on-one with the divine. The Salt Lake Men’s Choir sang and faith leaders from Native American, Pagan, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Metaphysical, Tibetan and Zen Buddhist and Christian faiths were present, with the pews full to the brim. Many hearts were full as Moudi Sbeity spoke about the Marriage fight in Utah as it began with him and two other couples who sued the state for equal rights.

Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 2pm was an interfaith rally that joined with the Dyke and Trans rallys and marches down from 200 S and 200 E to the festival at Washington Square at the Salt Lake City and County Building. 3pm brought the start of readings for $5. Lei Loni Tilley and Janelle Baguley joined SLPS in full mermaid attire. Lei Loni read the cards at the booth entrance, drawing in all the mermaid/mermen to be! The close of the day came at 9pm when the sun set and SLPS headed off to have a late dinner of Pakistani food at Zaika on State street.

Sunday, June 8, 2014 was the Pride parade at 10am. Lined up at 400 S and 400 E in the back with the interfaith, SLPS marched in robes and pointy hats, with The Mermaids of the Great Salt Lake. President Muad’Dib sported a new custom rainbow outfit made by Woman Between the Wolves. The parade finished around 12pm and the readings continued, picking up an even greater pace of people the second day till the festival closed at 7pm.

The festival was very successful for SLPS, making back the booth fee and having enough to spend on a celebratory dinner at the Rio Grande Cafe and give some back to the tarot readers. Here is to next year’s pride!

SLPS was asked to read the tarot at the U’s Crimson Nights Friday, April 11, 2014 which was circus themed.

Twice a year SLPS has an opportunity to do service. This fall brought it around on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at one of the bi-annual psychic fairs called “Fall Wonders” at the Church of the Sacred Circle in West Valley. The large yurt is accommodating to up to ten readers and people at a time. A fire was going in the pit, and a pagan vendor was selling geodes and kambucha on the side. Lunar Oak Spirit, Muad’Dib, and Woman Between the Wolves worked as readers, donating the money earned to the Church. The fair went from 12-8 and had waves of customers coming in, seeking advice with the cards and oracles, as well as getting their astrological carts read by Heron Herodias, one of the leaders of CSC at whose back yard the yurt sits on.

SLPS had a great time helping the new Utah Valley University Pagan Association get on its feet. President Muad’Dib read tarot at the club rush on Thursday, September 11, 2013. Sitting with the interfaith section and next to the ROTC, many soldiers came for readings, as well as the regular students at the rush. President Lunar Oak Spirit was pleased with the amount of attention the free tarot drew, as it helped get the word out that UVUPA is up and going!

On March 23, 2013, SLPS read tarot for free for the students at the Rock the U Marathon for Cancer Awareness. Muad’Dib, Woman Between the Wolves, and Piggy brought their tarot decks for a few hours, and over the load music in the Union Ballroom at the Student Union Building at the University of Utah, read the card for about 30 people. SLPS enjoys this type of service, as it’s free for the students, gives everyone practice, and allows them to make more connections with people without considering money. Check out the pics below!
