Originally uploaded by sharpandkeen
The seasons turn and the veil thins, as we advance toward the cold of winter. Our harvests come to a close and we turn inward to contemplate the bitter winds of the dark time of the year.

Join us as we call upon our ancestors and loved ones who have passed in the last wheel.

SunStave Circle meets for the Samhain feast at 7 pm on Saturday, Oct. 31st in the Church Fork picnic area just below Log Haven Restaurant in Millcreek Canyon.

Watch for ribbons in the trees to signal our picnic area. We will be outdoors for this ritual so please dress for inclement weather, this event will NOT be canceled due to weather. Bring camp chairs to sit on and a potluck dish for the feast. If you would like to honor your ancestors you may bring a photo or memento for the altar.

Children are very welcome to attend this ritual but parents must be responsible for the behavior and whereabouts of their young ones. Although this event will be open to children we do ask that parents help their youngsters to understand that they are attending a respectful celebration of the dead.

Your hostess for this event is Heron and she can be reached at 801-613-VENUS

There will be an adults-only "afterparty" at the Sacred Circle Temple following the ritual. For more details on this event please contact Avalon at 801-661-1710

Utah Stories Article

Sun Stave

"Blessed be."

The sacred rite is about to begin. A woman wearing a white robe and a pentagram necklace rings a chime and invites those in attendance to join her in a magical ceremony celebrating the coming of spring. She is joined to by two men wearing black robes. The ritual will take about half an hour and will involve the conjuration of multiple elemental forces. First, the three begin a multi-tonal chant and an invocation of benevolent spirits in Hebrew. They turn and face each of the four cardinal directions and make various hand gestures. Each direction is affiliated with a specific alchemical element and is called upon for blessings.

I am about to take part in the Sunstave Circle at the Odd Fellows lodge in Sandy, and the purpose of tonight's ritual is to seek balance between the spiritual and physical form and celebrate the spring equinox. The event is a unique Utah tradition that has been taken place in Utah since 1996 and happens about every six weeks, corresponding with various solar calendar events.

Grantchester Meadows
By: Roger Waters

Icy wind of night be gone this is not your domain.
In the sky a bird was heard to cry.
Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds
Belied the deathly silence that lay all around.

Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox
Gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer
Making for the sea.

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down.
All around me golden sun flakes settle on the ground.
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room.

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox
Gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees.

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down.
All around me golden sun flakes covering the ground.
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room.

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox
Gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.

SunStave Imbolc / Candlemas

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Friday, Jan. 30th
Starting at 7 pm
Odd Fellows Hall
8698 Center St. Sandy Utah


I am Clove, this is the pagan that took the staff for the 2nd
Midwinter Sabbat that is usual held around January 31 to Feb 6. I have
rented the Odd Fellows Hall in Sandy, for Friday January 30th at 7pm.
We will be giving honor to Winter & the weather god/desses, at the
end of ritual acknowledge the coming of spring. Volunteers and the
loan of decorations would be very welcomed and needed. For decorations
colors of winter not Yule~~ think dark blues, the colors and symbols
of snow and ice, bare trees, animals of the season, rain, thunder and
lighting, finally caves, shadows and the occasional star filled sky of
late winter. Or what I like to call Deep Winter.
Midwinter Fractal
I am a solitary Hedge Witch (with Druid leanings) that celebrates the
seasons I am in, not the ones coming up. In my path I give thanks and
Honor to the current cycle of seasons. The pagans of old were Turning
the Wheel ~ which is wonderful. I know that many pagans still Turn the
Wheel which is great. However many in the world not, just pagans, are
so focused on what is next that I feel moments and energies are rushed
through, dealt with or ignored like Dark Winter. The season of cold
and storms, death, transformation, rest, candlelit rooms, fire warming
our homes, slowing down and introspection, incubation…
I will share more soon about the ritual, volunteer activities and
would love input. So please if you can help or would like to volunteer
reply here or email me
Peaceful Deep Winter,

The Staff has been passed for Imbolc!
