The Face of Diana, is one of many faucets she is a Mother, a Hunter, Protector, Daughter, Sister, Wife, she is a Queen in which she requires great sacrifice of her Priestesses and loves all creatures and humanity. She is of the Moon but also of Fire as being the daughter of Jupiter/Zeus the Greeks equate her with Sagittarius in her huntress form and she is also of the Moon and the waters of healing, psychic energies, feelings and emotions, the underworld and the heavens above. Diana is Below as Above, as Above, So Below, she is Diana, Kore/Persephone and Hecate. The Moon came first and the moon is viewed as the darkness in which all things were created from, she is by the Hermetic’s viewed as the One Thing in which everything is learned to evolve to the One Mind. Darkness is not evil, but evil does exist in the dark, chaos and all things in which we are taught to fear and to fear to not face yourself and to become one of ignorance and intolerance. Yes, we need darkness with the light to have a balance in all things to know thyself is to know both sides of yourself and accept that they both exist in one.
Diana is the face of all phases of the Moon New Moon, Waxing, Full and Wane she is a bringer of things as well as one who can take it away. She protects us from our enemies, she bestows us with gifts and blessed homes, she blesses families, children, marriages, warriors and all who are her children. She is the Mother who created even the stars in the heavens the place from where we all come from in the heavens. When we look to heavens it is Diana we are looking at, everything she is and does began in the heavens, to gaze upon the Moon is to gaze upon her face and see her watching over us and blessing us. This is an amazing force and energy of the Great Mother, the Queen of Heaven and the Queen of Witches.
Diana as a Goddess is a Mother but she too is a Warrior and she demands much of those who dedicate and initiate to her, to be a Priestess of Diana is a place of great honour. She bestows those who honour her with great gifts as well as trials of great suffering in which define who we are as her initiates. When we work with the spirits, the gods, the goddesses, we are working with great powers, we pray to them, meditate with them and as for many things for those who are in need and for our homes, friends and families. Yet, there is a question are we expected to give back? Yes, we are and without question. The gods give us those things in which develop us into who we are as individuals, as Priestesses and Priests of the Old Craft to serve them and work with them we accept all that is put onto us. It is how we are raised up to a new level of understanding, knowledge, enlightenment, compassion, and as a Witch and person. In her temple, Diana welcomes all she does not turn creature, person or animal away her doors are open to all for healing, health, prosperity and all that they seek of her.
We must be willing to accept everything that comes into our path when we work with the gods and spirits. This is why the Path of a Witch is not one for just anyone to walk, it is a a path of sacrifice and reward, but most of all it is the only way to reach complete enlightenment and understanding to what is “As Below, So Above, As Above, So Below.
To walk this path is an honour and one in which has to be taken with purity of heart.
Her Festival is from the 13 –15 of August
