Believe it or not, we started the Magical Battle for America on Feb. 18, 2017 — almost just a year ago. We’ve created a working space on the astral plane and, in addition to working with a number of magical allies and tools, we’ve created five American power banners: Lady Liberty, Walden Pond, the Underground Railroad, the Cowboy, and the Salmon. Diotima has listed the workings in chronological order.
Based on your feedback, I think it’s worth continuing this work. I’ve heard from some members of other religions who are working along with us, as well as Pagans from across the globe. And we’ll continue to work with our five magical symbols. But I’d like to ask you if there are other symbols/powers that you believe we should incorporate for the coming year. I never picked the five symbols we have; the Goddess gave them to me. (I was really resistant to the Cowboy, but She insisted and, in the end, I think She was right). So I’d like to ask you to engage in some discernment and let us know what you find. Cast a circle. Light a candle or some incense. Stare into a bowl of water. Pull a Tarot card. Talk to your Goddesses/Gods. Go the your astral hillock and look to the sky to see what appears.
Please let us know what you find by leaving a comment below.
And, thank you for doing this work with me. (Thank you also for all of the “mundane” work I know you’re doing, too: marching, voting, donating, phone banking, canvassing, registering voters, calling your representatives, writing letters, planting an extra row for the food pantry, knitting hats for homeless people, being kind. It all matters. It’s all real. It’s all metaphor. There’s always more.)
