Starlight is a Blue Star coven and grove in North Andover, MA. We are a traditionalist, hierarchical BTW (British Traditional Wicca) group that also works with deities from a number of other pantheons (British Isles, Greek, Roman, Norse, etc.). We value historical texts and the teachings of those who came before us, as well as the unique spiritual paths and insights of our members. The focus of our group is strongly influenced by our members’ interests and our personal experiences with deity. 

 

We are an orthopraxic group.  That is to say, what is most important is what we do.  We do not require certain beliefs.  Our practice often reflects the duality of our Goddess and God, but our it doesn’t conform to the custom of gender-linked or biological-sex-determined officiant roles.  We work with many deities, and we take joy in the variety of gender and roles in our world and in our practice. 

 

We typically hold rituals on Full Moons, New Moons, and eight Sabbats a year.  The core of our practice is adult-only, but we sometimes have several events throughout the year that non-practicing family members, including children, are welcome to attend. Sacred feast is important to us, and we have become adept at accommodating a wide range of dietary restrictions. We value mirth as well as reverence in our circles and in our lives. We are crafty, as well as Crafty, and we make many of our own tools and candles. Our circles are rife with liturgical music and singing. For more information on Blue Star and how liturgical music became so central to our tradition, see Home Again.

 

Our active members range in age from our thirties to our fifties. We are a passionate, creative, socially progressive group of folks with varied interests.

 

We are most easily accessible by car. There are commuter rail stations within a couple of miles, but no easy public transportation to the covenstead. 

 

We value balance, trust, harmony, tolerance, humility, and learning in our lives, and diversity, justice, and equity in our group and in our community. 

 

Gender is a social construct. 

Not even biological sex is binary. 

Consent is crucial.

Trans lives matter. 

Black lives matter. 

No human is illegal.

Love is love

Healthcare is a human right.

Women’s rights are human rights.

Clean water is life.
