Greetings and Blessed Be. I am Magister Shawnus Merlin Santee Belarion Ferrisstar ZAXON 3td* elder High Priest of the Coven of the Catta. You can read more about the coven at the download link below to the free PDFs of booklets i have written.

I am a 61 year old male of German and Scots/Irish descent living here in the Appalachians of Pennsylvania. I have a nice little house on an acre out in the woods, at the base of a mountain, along a stream, and i live here with my two black cats. My house is full of altars to the various deities. I also have a small 1936 bungalow with no electricity or water that i escape to away from technology. The downstairs is set up for Powwow and the upstairs is a full Solomonic temple for that kind of working. I also recently acquired a cabin behind my property which i plan on turning into a full blown Witch Covenstead Temple like Dr Santee and Lady Phoebe had at the original Covenstead where i learned and was trained up north.

I have practiced some form of religion since i was pre-teen, from Christianity to Zen, Thelema, Solomonic Magickes, the Ordo Templi Orientis, British Traditional Witchcraft, Native American Shamanism, Tibetan Buddhism, Shaivism, Naga puja, bloodless Voudoun etc etc etc. I have initiations and empowerments in many of these systems.

I had the privilege of meeting and being initiated by Lady Phoebe Athene Nimue of the Coven of the Catta back in 1981 and progressed through my degrees under her tutelage. With a Priestess i ran the Coven up there for about 8 years, then took a hiatus to do other practices, then came back just before her passing. There have been a handful of initiates and few of us that teach. Presently there are two of us who rarely take on new students. But there are Probationers and Third degrees spread from NY to PA to NC to FLA.

I pray to the Goddess Diana-Astarte-Hekate and the God Faunus-Kernunnos-Baphometus that this lineage continues to grow and practice the rituals we have been given.

If you want to buy a softcover or get a free PDF download booklet on the coven entitled Coven of the Catta – Elders and History – Unique Ritual Practices and Spells then hit this link. I think you have to register at Lulu.com but the download is free.

If you want to see “Coven of the Cat” on “The Haunted” on Animal Planet, which has Lady Alsace and myself in it, it used to be on YT but Unfortunately they seemed to have pulled these videos so now you have to wait for re-runs leading up to Halloween or purchase it at Amazon.

If this page seems more about me than the other members of the Coven of the Catta, like Lady Alsace, that is because i respect their privacy. Look through the other posts for more about the coven in general. Blessed Be!

My own personal magickal blog with over a thousand posts on a variety of subjects is Blau Stern Schwarz Schlonge.

  1. Hi, Lord Shawnus,

    It has been a long time since we had an opportunity to talk. I was wondering if you could email me your phone number so we could catch up? This is Douglas Helvie A.k.a. Lord Gaelan Firestorm of the Eternal Harvest Tradition. You and I had some interesting conversation a number of years ago after your Coven was featured on Animal Planets “The Haunted”. Would like an opportunity to catch up with you and see how you are doing via that antiquated process called the phone call :-)

  2. I saw you on A Haunted today. I found this as an answer from the Gods and Goddess. I hope you will have the time to respond for I would be honoured to learn more about the coven. Ty Blessed. Be

    • Hello RavenStorm. Its funny but I already know a Raven Storm so is this Chey writing me? Yea they still run those old episodes of The Haunted now and then. Unfortunately YT pulled them but i have bought the first year series on DVD, my 5 minutes of fame, lol. Download that free PDF of the booklet I wrote linked on the About page for more info. I always have to ask if you are 18 or older just for legal reasons. Then you can email me at the addy there or find us on WV. I am at my public addy shawnuscoc@gmail.com and then we can talk off the comments page. How can i and our coven be of service to you?

  3. hello my name is marygail I live in the mountains of northeast Tennessee I have some questions for you if you have the time to explain my curiosity I was born the day before Halloween in 1975 I have always been interested in the occult but not the black arts I am frightened of that can you please help me understand your beliefs and hopefully I can understand enough to form my own opinion on the subject and make my discissions based on what I am told I hope I have not made a mistake contacking you I heard about you from a tv show a haunting someone in this coven went into a home and cleansed it . thank you for your time.

    • Marygail – thanks for writing. i always have to ask at first if you are over 18? I cannot answer your questions in a comment in a blog as they are too complex. Have you downloaded and read my free book? do that then feel free to email me at leeshawnus@gmail.com and we can move on from there. No dear, no mistake contacting me. I am not “all that” just someone who had their 10 minutes of fame doing what i do. Feel free to continue this conversation by email then from there if you wish by phone. Blessed Be.

  4. Hello Lord Shawnus,

    I do have your 5 minutes of fame on DVD in the Haunted. I have been watching and contacting
    a great many people who try to help people with spiritual problems. No one has been able
    nor willing (through manipulation) to help me. I was latched onto and have been continuously
    cursed since 1966 when I was conceived. Born April 13, 1967. I have been fighting hard these last
    15 years to recover my life and have in under my own and my creators’ control. Is there anything
    you can do? Any influence you can add? I know I am physically very far from you but distance
    has proved not to be too much of a barrier in my case. Or at least not for those who are compelled,
    conscripted to or enslaved to ruin me. Beings are massed produced continually to be sure it never

    I hope I do hear back from you even if you can do nothing to help,

    Blessed and So Mote it Be,
