This is why I love being a witch. On a crisp, clear, starry night last night I celebrated the full moon at the April Esbat. The balance between male and female in the incarnation of the Divine is one of the things that most attracted me to Wicca. Seeing Priest and Priestess join together to create something beautiful is a potent metaphor for the creative force that brings life into being. This is the real essence of Wicca, and not the silly goth-poser, Hollywood-wizard-wannabe pretentiousness that is all too common in paganism.
