After Mindy and I moved to go to a different college in summer 2008, we finally realized we lived too far away to participate regularly in my second coven. So we formed a branch that was recognized by a Yule celebrated by my first and second coven on Dec. 21, 2008. I was made High Priestess! That's a great honor but also a tremendous responsibility. But I had been a member of a coven for eight years and was studying and practicing Wicca before that. Our branch is still associated with my first and second coven but it became a separate group when Stormshelter and Frost Flower joined on Feb 25 2013.
Helionix and Caesin-Thuriri were initiates but made priest and priestess on Dec. 21, 2009 even though really it's counted as Dec. 22, 2009. We initiated Struana on Sept. 18, 2009 and she became a priestess on Sept. 22, 2010. Moonfox was initiated Oct. 31, 2009 and became a priest on Jan. 19, 2011. Luna-Morrigan was initiated on Feb. 28, 2010 and became a priestess on March 19, 2011 but then she went to a different college so she became an associate priestess on Oct. 11, 2011. Hel Silvercloud who was Zwillina in my second coven joined on Sept. 22, 2010 when she started at our college so she was already a priestess. She left college and moved back home Feb. 20, 2012 which is pretty far away so we had to make her an associate priestess. Verdanita who is Cleo joined on Oct. 11, 2011 but then quit and because her boyfriend didn't like it and so we had to remove her on Dec. 10, 2011 which was sad.
We hoped Helionix could become our High Priest. But he graduated and then moved before he was ready which wasnt his fault but we had to remove him on July 1, 2011. Colette was also initiated on Oct. 11, 2011 as a freshman then she became a Priestess on Dec. 21, 2012. Then Stormshelter joined with his sother Frost Flower on Feb 25 2013. They had a lot of experience so they were already a priest and priestess. Stormshelter became our High Priest on Mar 16 2014. Their daughter Rainbow Fairyborn joined on Aug 10 2014. She was an initiate until Aug 14 2014. Because she wasn't a legal adult then she was a Lesser Priestess. Colette graduated in June 2016 and moved back home so we had to remove her but made her an Associate Priestess. Rainborn Fairyborn became a legal adult so was raised from Lesser Priestess to Priestess on June 9 2017. Priestess Caesin-Thurirl moved in November 2019.
Enchantric who was a member of my first coven was initiated as a priest on Imbolc on Feb 1 2020. Then we initiated Verbascum Hare who had been a priestess of another coven before she moved here for college on Ostara on Mar 20 2020. We started meeting online after that cuz of COVID-19 but it is totally not the same.
And we plan to install Mystario as an Initiate on Jan 28 2021!
