Myth's Notes

Northern Star Coven is an Alexandrian coven located in North Carolina, USA. I noticed they had a very nice website when I found it in 2006. I remember their website also had a very interesting "Wiccan rosary" which was used for meditation. With their permission I posted the Litany of Aradia on my website on January 12, 2007.

Their website no longer resides at the above address. I am leaving it up, because I promised I would when I posted the Litany of Aradia.

A litany is a ritual format which involves call and response. In other words, the ritual leader recites a series of words or phrases with alternative responses by ritual participants--usually in supplication or invocation.

This lovely Litany of Aradia was composed by members of the Northern Star Coven using the list of epithets or titles of Aradia I had created 3/3/05.
