Mystic Star Coven is a practicing, teaching and training Coven in Louisville, Kentucky.
We were founded in 2005, by our current High Priest, and practiced together until 2008. In 2008, we went on hiatus due to various life issues among the Membership. In early 2014, the High Priest re-opened Mystic Star for it’s second incarnation.
Mystic Star practices The Feycraft Tradition.
Feycraft is an amalgamation of two different Traditions, and was begun in the 1980’s by the High Priest’s Initiator. Our High Priest learned Feycraft from his Initiator throughout the first half of the 1990’s.
Today, Mystic Star boasts a good amount of training material and exercises for Dedicants that is specifically relevant to Feycraft.
Our mission is to obliterate the status quo of yesteryear’s infighting, prejudice, and immaturity that exists in the Pagan community. And we do this by producing happy, well-adjusted Witches who are consistently progressing in their Craft.
Mystic Star annually attends Beltane festivities at Our Haven, in French Lick, Indiana.
Something About US
Mystic Star is open to Members of any gender identity.
Most decisions are made by consensus of Coven Council.
We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, social or financial background, gender or gender identity, or sexual orientation.
We consider the Rede to be good advice, but in reality, we practice a Warrior’s Ethic.
Who We Are
This site may seem a bit formal because we have an organized, formal way of vetting our incoming Dedicants, but as a group, we’re somewhat like a bunch of drunk people practicing a form of Pagan Witchcraft.
We are a modern Witchcraft Tradition that was begun in the 1980’s and 1990’s, and by our definition, we would be considered Eclectic, which means, “deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.”
What Makes Us Different
We don’t have an issue with same-gender initiations. Our Tradition teaches that the Primary Force of Creation is sometimes two or more genders at once, sometimes no gender, sometimes either male or female, and (usually) every gender all at once. The underlying current of power of Feycraft has no specific gender requirements.
While we utilize an agricultural theme to our Sabbat celebrations, our primary focus and concern is not on fertility, like other Traditions. Rather, our ultimate goal is the ecstatic experience of the realm of spirit that surrounds us, and a feeling of oneness with nature and the universe. (In case you’re wondering, ecstasy isn’t only about sex.)
For the same reasons, we do not keep a male/female ratio in our group. There is no need. A good Witch can work with the energies of either gender, or no gender, or one or more of the many genders that exist. Likewise, we do not believe in the necessity of having both a male and a female leader at the same time. Coven Leaders can be single individuals, or a pair of individuals, of any gender identity.
