  • Follow the Moon: Astrology of intention and mindfulness

    by Teri Parsley Starnes

    Teri’s interest with astrology lies with helping people see how following a practice of intention and self-awareness leads to a fuller relationship with Mystery. Astrology is a wonderful tool for this. Her weekly column orients readers to the seasonal energy of
    each month’s Sun sign in order to set magical/mindful intention for the lunar month beginning at the New Moon.

    Each week Teri will write about the unfolding energies that support and challenge our intentions. The ebb and flow of the lunar cycle resides deep in our souls. Through following the phases of the Moon, we remember the natural cycles that guide us.

    The large Twin Cities Blue Star Wicca tradition community, and Pagans nationally are mourning the loss of Keith Campbell. His announcement of a cancer diagnosis, and rapid passing was a shock friends and tradition mates are still trying to come to terms with. A local memorial is planned for Sunday, September 13 from 3pm to 6pm (see below). This obituary was just published today:

    “Keith James Campbell (Twilight) passed from this realm and on to the Summerlands on Wednesday, August 5, 2015.  Keith was born in Kirkwood, Missouri.  He leaves behind his parents and sister.  He spent many years formative years in Columbia, Missouri and later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Philadelphia area.  Unfortunately, within three weeks of learning he had pancreatic cancer, Keith passed on.  He was surrounded by loved ones who held him and sang to him as he passed through the veil.

    Keith was a beloved friend and mentor to many within the pagan community.  He was a scholar, a singer, a lore keeper, a graphic designer, and a queen.  He was a wealth of knowledge.  He was also an open door.  Keith helped to welcome many people to their path and helped guide them to their best self.

    11231910_10153605437342216_3250120115000381307_nWhile in Columbia, Keith was a founder of the  Heretic Clan, ran several festivals, and become a member of Blue Star.  He could be found at many of the Midwest’s pagan festivals.  Diana’s Grove was one of his favorite sacred spaces.  After being a member of Blue Star for a bit, he moved to the Sucking Vortex of Milk and Honey (Minneapolis).  There he became involved in Feri, Reclaiming, TwiTrad and more.  Keith was a legal pagan minister and performed many of our wedding and handfasting ceremonies.  He was a master of ritual theater, managing to be creative, discerning, and engaging.

    After moving to Philadelphia, Keith obtained his Third Degree and became a High Priest in Blue Star.  He helped birth the coven of White Oak and the grove of Acorn.

    Outside of his Craft legacy, Keith also was a talented graphics designer and vocalist.  His designs can be seen on many t-shirts, flyers and postcards relating to pagan events and gatherings.  He performed with One Voice for a number of years as well.

    Keith will be missed by many.  This tremendous loss will be felt by the pagan community for many years to come.

    Memorial services are planned in several locations across the country.  In Minneapolis, join us on Sunday, September 13 from 3pm to 6pm. Please bring your stories to share, your willingness to sing, and your love of Keith.

    I met Keith some twenty years ago as a Heretic singer at festival, and then again last fall at a Blue Star Family Gathering in Minnesota. My loss was not deeply personal, but he was invaluable to my tradition and clearly well-loved and highly respected. I invite those who have a personal anecdote, memory, or comments to please add them below!
