I met my girlfriend when she facebooked me and asked about the rumors of me being transgender. As we talked more and more she said she wouldnt mind dating a transgender person if I was interested so we got to know one another and she invited me to Indy Pagan Day where her coven was putting on a ritual. It sounded like a good time and I was exploring alternate religions so I went out and attended the event and also attended her ritual. I enjoyed the pomp and circumstance of the ritual coming from a Catholic background and it increased my interest in pagan holidays and esbats. We talked later and I let her know I would be willing to attend another ritual as they did most of their rituals publicly if her.
The next open ritual that they had was Samain and I was hooked, we attended the ritual I enjoyed myself as far as the learning process went and enjoyed the other people in the group. After this ritual though things started going south for me and the girlfriend and we broke up right before Yule and because of this I only attended one ritual with her coven. At the time I was hoping to continue the process with her coven but as the timed passed I saw that this was not going to be possible because of the drama.
This caused me to explore other options for my spirituality and I found an online coven to belong to for my education and a guild in a different city for my socialization. I still do almost nothing witchy in Indianapolis, Indiana because I do not want to run the chance of running into my ex girlfriend.
I have written before on the differences between a guild and a coven and would be more than willing to answer questions in either area. I will also take question on my transgender journey. Hope everyone has a wonderful day, sun has come out here, and it is fairly warm for the end of December
