What do you know about Eastern Star (female Masons)?
I have a friend that's been involved in Eastern Star for about 8 years. She was recently inducted as the Matron of a local chapter. She's always been a bit "different" (not emotional, distant) but I have noticed that it's been getting worse the last few months and it's effected our relationship. I'm wondering if it's at all related to her involvement in Eastern Star. I'm not that familiar with what is practiced at the meetings; she's very quiet about it. Anyone have an incite?

I have a family member that has been in the Eastern Stars for years. I would classify her as not to bright, small minded, easily lead, and a religious bigot.

My Gramma was Eastern Star and I've always been super curious about it. She was sweet, religious, easily led, docile and distant or maybe not too bright. Very concerned with appearances...

I knew a Mason, his wife was in the Eastern Stars and his daughters were Rainbow Girls, A Masonic group for family members. I don't know if there is a program for the boys but I imagine there would be.

Re: What do you know about Eastern Star (female Masons)?
Grandma was in Eastern Star: the family matriarch, intelligent, industrious, but also a bit distant. She was very involved in her church and local grange as well so I suspect it was a social thing for her.

Grandfather a mason, uncle a mason, brother a mason.

Me - well, I dropped out of girlscouts so there you go.

The thing about the Rainbow girls is that you can not join unless your parent in a Mason. Is is a private group.

I went out with the group on an outting once when I was younger, site seeing as a guest. Just a field trip sort of thing. But I couldn't have gone to any of the meetings (not that I would want to)

My older sister is one. Her father-in-law is head person in his state and he demanded that my brother-in-law and sister join. She doesn't like it as she's the youngest one in the group. She says most of them are seventy or eighty years old. At the same time, she says they are nice old ladies.

My grandma was one for a few. I guess it was the thing to do in the 50's. You know those masons are sneaky and things done in secret are not of God.

They seem to have a lot of rituals that appear religious on the outside, but really have nothing to do with the God of the bible.

I think a lot of women were involved with it in the past because their husbands were masons. In the lower levels it is just a social club.

Re: What do you know about Eastern Star (female Masons)?
There are more powerful book clubs. Same can be said of all Masonry, but especially for the women... I don't know how anyone would want to put up with that. You'll never be allowed into the smoking room, but you can gossip all you like in the foyer. What a waste.

I am a Mason and would be glad to help. : )

First. This site lists all the chapters of OES in Oklahoma. Choose the closest one to you and contact them.

Second. They will have you fill out a petition. You need top have a Mason in your family to meet qualifications so list/mention your grandfather.

If you are found to have good character you should be able to get in. Good luck!

You are smart to not fall for the "benignity" claim.

Their symbolism alone speaks volumes! That said, I realize that 99.9% of GLPers don't research anything.
