Some magic and precision was needed after Thanksgiving. The members of SLPS met under the Full moon Saturday, November 28, 2015 at 8pm to call upon the maiden goddess Artemis, to lend them strength, clarity, and precision to achieve their goals. The full moon is a great time to work powerful rites of any type of magic, especially when they are in need.

Some folks take into account the astrological position of the moon in the signs, the type of seasonal moon, time of day, day of the week and month. All of which can be used to forward and empower the spells performed. This particular moon helped a few members re-empower themselves and ask for clarity to find their goals.

After the ceremony, a friendly game of monopoly was played, with Ashton Longhurst winning with just two sets of property! Watch for those Scorpios, they will win in the end!

The Wheel turned and the time of the Ancestors was upon us! In the SLPS tradition, we do not only work with them at Samhain (pronounced Souw Win, not Sam Hane), but throughout the year. Even so, Samhain is THE time for the kindred and ancestral workings.

SLPS performed their personal coven rite on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at 8pm. This was necessary as SLPS also was to perform a public rite. Private group workings as well as personal work is an important component as it allows for self work and the members to bond together, express higher emotions, and be comfortable instead of having onlookers or worrying about strangers energies.

The right on October 24 went splendidly, with a homemade death by chocolate cake being the main cake, and bloody Mary’s for the wine. Osiris and Arianrhod were invoked as the patrons of the rite. The ancestors were called in with the song Samhain by Lisa Thiel on her album “Circle of the Seasons”. To calm the energies, the song Shanti (Peace Out) by MC Yogi on his album Elephant Power was played to bring everyone back and dismiss the dead. Feastings afterwards were spiced apple cider and Puerto Rican spaghetti.

SLPS was asked to conduct a public rite on Halloween for the Pagan shop As Above So Below in Roy, UT. SLPS gladly accepted. With a count of 45 people, the rite proceeded at 8:30. The archangels invoked in the quarters, the barriers thrown up, the song Samhain by Lisa Thiel was played after the ancestors were invoked to join the circle under the watch oft he High Priest Daniel Cureton and High Priestess April Love. Deities present were Cerridween, Arianrhod, Hades, and Osiris. HP Daniel Cureton performed a druid rite to Cerridwen, the ancestors, and the fall season. A toast with the coven chalice full of wine was passed around the room before the closing and pot luck feastings.
