Thanks to all the members and guests that came this past Saturday, February 23 2013 at 8pm for the Full Moon Ritual to Aphrodite. Those faithful and dedicated members trekked snow drifts, high winds and low visibility to give thanks to the Goddess of Love for all her blessings, especially in the month of February for Valentine’s Day. After clearing the space, shielding and proclaiming peace in the quarters, the elements, deities and ancestors were invoked to help work the magic of the night.

A special appearance by the Goddess was seen in the kitchen. The appearance was captured on camera by president Daniel Cureton and the goddess can be seen with Sergey Khrushechev as he pours his personal libation (left). Her reflection from the kitchen is seen in the mirror as she appears to be in saint form!

After the workings, the members enjoyed Jack Wagon Wheat Beer by Shades of Pale Brewing Co. out of Park City. Several hails, offerings and libations later, the gratitude ceremony came to a close with the traditional feasting on maple vanilla bean cookies and grape juice from Trader Joes.

Tarot readings commenced after the ritual, keeping the tradition alive to divine the future on the full moon. See you all next moon!

Thanks to all who attend the Imbolc ritual and feasting on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 6pm. The ritual was lead by President Cureton in a wiccan/druid fashion. Brigid was honored with song, poetry, fire and offerings. The members and guests who attended were taken on a spiritual journey to meet the Goddess in her hut by the mountain side meadows. After a brief interruption by little girls selling kettle corn, things were back in order and the journey back on track. The Goddess helped us define and smith out of a brick an object we would all need for the journey ahead.

Afterwards, president Cureton performed a druid rite and aspected the Goddess Ana or otherwise wise known as Anu or The Morrigan, goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. Her blessings were received by the members during the rattling of bells and her speaking through the druid president to the members.

Everything came to a close then, blessings of Brigid and Anu were received and the members passed through cleansing flames of candle fires in honor of Brigid’s fires and hearth. The feasting included items such as vegan lentil soup, couscous, pork roast stuffed with fruit and lots of wine! Till next we meet!

Hello to all,

After some recent events that transpired over the last full moon, a group vote has changed that all rituals in the future to be closed to public and invitation only. This is a precautionary measure to protect those in circle as well as those who are not yet ready to perform and work magic.

What will happen is that all those whom are interested in attending ritual should come to tea a few times on Sundays so that SLPS gets to know you, your energy, intent and your background. The rituals take place at a private residence so this precautionary note helps also keep unwanted energies and astral travelers down to a minimum.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause! There will still be stories, photos and docs posted of everything and all other events are open to public, so all desiring may still follow along and keep up to date on the current activities of SLPS
