Here are some more of my thoughts of how i wish to take the Coven of the Catta forward, at least for me.
I have always hated the word Probationer as it was taught to me, meaning someone going through their year and a day before Initiation. To me the word sounds like you are on Probation, and in a way you are as if you don’t “report for duty” during Sabbats then that’s a bad mark on “your record”. I also hate the word Dedicant which sounds like something i used to do in the Boy Scouts, LOL, and that term came out i think in the 80s when Witchcraft became “Wicca”.
I prefer the word Apprentice for someone seeking to learn Witchcraft with the goal of Initiation. The we are following The Craft and one needs to learn a lot then one can apprentice oneself to a master/mistress Crafts person or one’s education and training, much like the Medieval Guilds wee run.
So we have Apprentices (very Masonic also), a Witch when one has one’s First Degree, a Priestess or Priest at one’s Second Degree, and a Magister or Magistra (both very old terms in Witchcraft which no one much likes nowadays because they are too dom.
Bind Runes for
Catta Coven and Blue Star Black Snake Coven
As written about and ignored in earlier posts – There was the Coven de la Dragon Rouge on the Continent, the Coven of the Horsa in the UK, and the Coven of the Catta in the US. I learned the latter from Lady PAN who learned it from Dame Sybil Leek. But Dr Santee’s many many many Continental, English and North African lineages are oft ignored.
Sigil i drew in the hardening concrete in my cellar, laying in talismans, Indian head pennies and Runes
I personally am drawn to German Occultism and French Luciferianism (OK Lee, just say it, Baphometic Satanism). I am drawn to the seven or eleven Blue Star of Sirius A/B and the Black Snake of AmerIndian Shamanism, thus BSSS. Plus German Runic Powwow, Tibetan Buddhist Tantras, QBL, Rhineland Christian Mysticism, Kemetism, etc etc etc+
+,. Its all really the same you know….. We are blessed with Many lineages going back a bit, who knows how long, probably at least to the late 1800s. Time to turn this spaceship around and get back on the Old Track and the New Track.
