Welcome to our first issue of Starlight Voices.
We're glad to be able to give something to our
fellow young pagans.
We have the results of our on-line poll entitled
"How far out of the broomcloset are you?".
Hear what a few young pagans had to say about common
misperceptions that they've run into in our Youth Speaks
section. In the Starlight we have Jaqui Watson from Australia.
We have lots more so take your time and enjoy!

Oct. - Nov.
We're in the middle of the fall season. Samhain
is fast approaching with its creative/destructive
energies. Samhain (more commonly known as Halloween)
is the third and final harvest festival.
November 1 is the beginning of the Celtic New
Year and most pagans still celebrate it as
the end and beginning of a new year.
During this time the veil between worlds is at
its thinnest.That's why Halloween is so well known
for the faeries and other mystical creatures that
roam about. This is a time for working to manifest
our dreams; to destroy negative limitations and
start anew. Divination and honoring the dead are
also common practices this season.
In the southern hemisphere,pagans are celebrating
Beltane which is a fertility holiday.Witches dance to
symbolically nourish plant life.Spring is at its peak.
Union and love between the Goddess and God.The last stop
on the road to summer.
