The members of SLPS met on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 3pm to celebrate the union of the Lord and Lady in matrimony and at the Beltane wedding. The Maypole was unwoven from 2014 and set up on the lawn. Flowers from the garden adorned the altar as well as the great rite statue and queer gods painting.

Poetry honoring the Gods was read. The great rite was performed, the uniting of the blade and chalice, by the high priest and high priestess, offering up white zinfandel¬†wine. Beltane was played by Lisa Thiel on her album Circle of the Seasons as the members danced and wove the ribbons on 2016’s pole. As the members drank wine and relaxed, two morning doves flew into the trees, issuing calls to the members and giving the sign that the Lord and Lady was present.

The feasting included homemade drunken German Chocolate cake, beef stroganov, and noodles.

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!
