They say birth is painful. I'm waiting for the pain to start.

We formed a coven this week. I swore I'd never do it, but we took a chance and here I am, de facto High Priestess for a coven so new it doesn't even have a name.

We're not even terribly positive about our methods yet, but we're pretty sure about our intentions. Locally there's not any particular group, besides ours, that has been so well formed and so together. One of the city's Pagan lay leaders has been very dismissive of our happy little group and I frankly got tired of it. Thus the idea to form a formal coven.

Ideally, a coven is a group of like-minded people who come together with the understanding that there is strength in numbers and any organization is only as strong as its weakest link. What a coven is, most of all, is a “group mind”. A coven is a group of people who have worked hard to achieve rapport so that the focus and flow of every ritual comes naturally to the entire group.

We have this. With no other group have I felt the flow I get with these guys.

And boy we're an odd bunch. A kitchen witch with Shamanistic leanings, a couple of Chaos type mages, a handful of Celtic Wiccans, and Virginia. She's in her own category because frankly, she doesn't fit anywhere else.

We held our first official coven ritual last night and it went a lot like our non-official rituals. There was a lot of laughter. We believe the Gods love laughter, else they wouldn't have given us the ability to flub up something that should be simple.

We held a Full Moon rite last night. Just our little group. And it felt right. It felt like family.
