Everyone has certain archetypes by which they live. You may follow the archetype of the student, the wife, the worker, the father, the healer, or some other model. Archetypes are something you may model yourself upon, but never achieve. And that's OK because striving to match the archetype often gives meaning to our lives. You strive to be the best student, the best husband, the best healer that you can be.

You will find archetypes to live by in your community of choice. They may be different from community to community. For example, there are many archetypes in the Wiccan community: Maiden, Mother, Crone, Priest, Priestess, Healer, Magician, Bard, and others. But rarely will you find the archetype of the Warrior.

In some ways, this makes sense. Most people think of a Warrior as a fighter, and the rule that is accepted by many Wiccans is "An it harm none, do what thou wilt." Wouldn't a fighter be going against this basic rule?

In Wiccan Warrior, author Kerr Cuhulain reveals that this is not so.

"Being a Warrior is not about fighting. It's about freeing yourself of limitations so that you can be truly creative and effective in life."

With that he reveals eight Wiccan Warrior archetypes with which you, male of female, can identify.

The Balanced Warrior is one who realizes that everything comes from the Divine and that every action you do has a result in the universe. Following the path of the Creative Warrior you will learn to make use of myths, not as sterile laws, but as ways of understanding the universe. Then you can create myths of your own in order to share your wisdom. The prime function of the Rational Warrior archetype is to avoid fundamentalism. A Warrior should be spontaneous, fluid and not a creature of habit. The idea that there is one right path for everyone, to fall into the path of exclusivity, is the opposite of this archetype.

The Energized Warrior learns how to raise and direct magical or psychic energy. Cuhulain shares how to do this with toning, mantras, dance, and drumming, then tells you how to ground the energy when you have finished your energetic work or magick. The Dreaming Warrior archetype concerns trancing, or altering your consciousness. In this chapter you will learn techniques of meditation, concentration, and breathwork.

The Magickal Warrior is one who follows the archetype of developing magickal abilities and knowledge. Here you will learn the basics of magic along with cord magick, and candle magick. The Ritual Warrior follows the archetype of the ultimate ritualist. To strive to achieve this archetype means that you will revitalize the rituals with energy and love. You'll also learn how to develop your own rituals.

Finally, the Initiated Warrior is one who realizes that initiation is more than just joining a club. It is a linking with the community and with the Gods.

If you are a Wiccan, this book will add an entirely new dimension to your faith. But even if you are not a Wiccan, you will find archetypes you can live by.

The mighty dead, divination, and portals to other worlds… there are so many places to celebrate Samhain in the northeastern United States… The cooler weather, the colorful leaves, and, as the memes say, "Pumpkin everything!" Like so many witches, autumn is my favorite season, and Samhain, my favorite Sabbat. As a child I loved... read this article
