The Lighthouse Mission:
This Mabon Day Revelation for me was that we witches will be better served if we complete our migration out into the light of day, forever away from the shadowy lie of the broom closet and do our Work courageously. No parade is necessary, just the mere un-shuttering of our flames like lighthouses on the rocky shores of this society.
Lighthouses don’t chase the ships; they just stand tall and sturdy, shining brightly without shame. The blinding light from so many fully-realized witches will dazzle the muggles anyway, so we have that distraction working for us. I won’t be easy, but hear this: WE ARE WITCHES. If we cannot take up the power to be fully present in this society, accurately known for our contributions, then who can be?
I then engaged Spirit in a conversation about each of these ideas using the tarot, and posted those interpretations at the following links:
- The Wiccan Rede
- Warlock–meaning in this instance–that a witch who took oaths within a group to “harm none” are now known to be an “oath breaker” and are magickally disassociated from the group who once acknowledged them. This is a breaking of their connection to that group’s egregore, reputation and power, as a means of diminishing the oath breaker’s ability to do more harm to themselves or others.
- Thealogical viewpoints as I see them growing in logical progression from the sacred poetry of Wicca, modern psychology, and the occult wisdom from which it is derived in the Western Esoteric traditions.
- Balrogs, by JRR Tolkein in Lord of the Rings, are described as tall and menacing with the ability to shroud themselves in fire, darkness, and shadow. wikipedia
