Moonfire's high priestess Stacey circled with Balefire, a thriving teaching grove and coven in Central New Jersey, for over ten years. When third degree came knocking on her door, Balefire had become rather large, so she decided to form Moonfire on Imbolc in 2010. The new grove focused on healing along with the usual worship of deity in a traditional Blue Star structure. In October of 2011, Stacey took third degree and Moonfire Coven and Grove officially hived.
Moonfire Grove is run by the HPS Stacey and her partner Michael who has been active in Blue Star since 2007. Our summoner John has been active in Blue Star since 1999, and our handmaiden, Seastar (John's wife), has been active since 2002. Our other members range from seekers through Neophytes working toward initiation. Our interests and ages are also diverse. Several members have children and children are usually welcome at rituals, though we recognize some rituals may not be appropriate for all ages and we alert parents accordingly.
Many of our members are healers by profession and we often have a healing aspect to our work. We focus on healing ourselves so we can better heal others and preparing ourselves to serve our community as healers and clergy.
We always welcome inquiries from interested seekers. We have a close relationship with other area groves and can certainly offer help in finding a Blue Star grove for those interested.
