Athame and the Heart

Our Hearts are a Crossroad; they are the point at which the Hearts of the Moon and Earth conjoin. Two held in perfect balance as manifest Thou. This is the thought I had this morning while conducting my morning devotionals. I had just finished ringing the bell to herald our Lady and Lord but before advancing to anointments and prayers, when a glance at the sigils upon the athame brought this wonderful image to the fore of my thoughts.

Not to delve into those sigils in any depth but suffice to say that this imagery that they invoked then expanded into thoughts whereby the athame is a symbol and tool of this Crossroad in addition to being the Witches’ Will. This is the thought that was at my center when I anointed myself with the same oil as used upon the brow of the Lady and Lord.

Perhaps I will embark upon working with prayer to bring this presence into the use of my athame? Food for thought it is. Whatever I decide, I know that casting circle and erecting a temple will take on an altered nuance for me.

Boidh se!
