Application to Become a Student
You must be 17 years old to apply to be a student. Anyone under the age of 17 years old has to have a parent/guardian write to me from their own email address after they have read the application and what is expected of my novices giving their written permission for you to be a novice with me. This is also dor me to answer any questions about The Craft and/or myself they may have.
Before I accept anyone as a student I ask them to answer the following questions. Please scroll down to read what I expect from my novices and what they can expect from me before answering the following questions and emailing Lady Beltane your application.
What country or state you live in?
How old are you?
Why do you want to study The Craft?
Have you read the rest of this post and understand what Lady Beltane expects from her novices?
D0 you have any questions about my expectations of my novices?
Email your answer to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will reply as soon as possible to let you know if you have been accepted or not.
I expect all lessons to be done in order and completed before sending them to me. I will then review them and email you back with any corrections needed. After that, I will let you know you can start on the next lesson. Do not start on the next lesson until told to do so, please. The lessons are like bricks in a foundation of a building if you miss putting a brick in somewhere or do not do it correct order the whole foundation is weak. When practicing magick there can be no weak spots in your foundation or your magick may very well hurt you or someone else or something else somewhere. Email every lesson in its own email with the “Subject” line having the lesson number in it.
Even if you do not have a lesson to turn in I expect a short email weekly from each student just so we can keep in contact all you really have to say is hi. If I do not hear from you for two weeks in a row I will believe you no longer wish to study with me and remove you from the class email list. If at any time during your year and 1-day novice study period you chose to quit studying with me I would appreciate an email letting me know you are exiting the classes and coven and if you want to give me a reason as to why you are exiting that would be great. I am available by email or to meet in the chat room if you need help with a lesson or have any questions about The Craft. These meeting when at all possible should be set up a minimum of three days in advance.

Lady Beltane will answer all students emails within two to three days of receiving them. I do not answer emails on the weekends because of my work schedule.
Lady Beltane will hold a monthly meeting that all novices must attend. The meeting time and date will be announced on the Coven Life website a minimum of one week in advance and depends on the Lady’s work schedule. This meeting is for you to meet other novices, ask questions, give answers if you know them, make comments on the study plan and/or lessons. If you or someone you care for is ill, you have to work or an emergency arises I ask that you let me know as soon as you can that you cannot attend or if it is after the meeting why you missed it. These meetings are important as topics will come up that are not covered in the study material.
There are online coven gatherings on every full or new Moon at 7:00 PM CT the visiting and ritual last about one-half hour for each of them. You need to attend the monthly Esbat gathering. As the Esbats falls on different days of the week according to the Moon’s cycle, I can not give a set date, please check the Coven Life website for announcement of Esbat gatherings.
Check the Coven Life website at least once a week for announcements for gatherings and the new posts that have been shared. Lafy Beltane expects at least one comment on one post every week so she knows you are checking the website for posts that can further your education in The Craft or bring you closer to the pagan community you will be part of when you become a novice or sometimes just to get to know your mentor Lady Beltane a bit better.
All emails should be sent to ladybeltane@aol.
