Welcome to our third issue of Starlight
We've got the first printing of our new environmental
column "The Green Life" featuring an article by the
column's editor, Dragonraven.
*Special note to our readers: We are featuring an
article as part II of our Witchcraft/Paganism Today
series in this issue. It's titled: Teens in a Pagan Society
and is written by an exceptional young Pagan, Silver Willow.
We want to make it clear that the author does not condone young people to
stay in the closet with their families. We need to clarify that even though
there is help for closet-ridden teens in the article, it's written to
be humorous as well and not as a way of hiding from your parents.
Please keep that in mind when reading the article.
As always your comments are welcome.

We're entering the dark season. A time for families, whether it
be to honor the dead, or feasting with visiting relatives. It's
a very magickal time now when the veil between worlds is
thinnest. This is when we let go of the past to make room in our
lives for new beginnings.
Southern Hemisphere Pagans are feeling the end of the spring
season. The sun's warmth is growing as the days grow longer.
Beltane is upon us, and this too, is a powerful time. Now is
the time for romance and love.
