WANDERING COTERIE, THE
Practitioners within the Stardust Compass
The outward force or emanation; the blasting radius of a magickal act; the circle bounding the whole of the witch’s universe; the bloody acre; the sacred plot
The inward force of descent; the moving of oneself through the worlds; in particular the underworld & otherworld of the spirits, dead, and fae folk; to engage in a state of ecstatic trance in which one loosens and releases the spirit from the corporal shell
The merging of one's spirit with the other, ranging from an intelligent entity to a primal force of the cosmos. At its fullest extreme: to merge / become possessed by the other and allow it to control ones physical form. To be as the Axis Mundi, a path open for all to flow over and through you (with consent, of course). To be that selfsame channel which focuses the outward manifestation of one's force towards a desired objective (which, naturally, can include sending energy directly to another entities as an offering, allowing for them to work towards a goal as emissary / partner).
A’kah, Za’kah! Jez Ka'bar!
Often said as a declarative statement in Shen Tay'll in order to declare and / or imprint one's intention onto the cosmos and to those spirits present in the vicinity of the witch when spoken.
- may the stardust in you be ever radiant
- may you awaken the Stardust within you
An encouragement to another practitioner to awaken, inflame, and vivify one's internal stardust. Can be used as a greeting or parting when speaking to another practitioner (especially one of the Wandering Coterie).
- point of becoming
The current place in your energetic body where you are most strongly experiencing and interfacing with the world around you.
