Having been a solitary practitioner for almost 30 years , I have become the one that speak to my God/dess . That is when I practice Witchcraft . When I was in a Coven (there were only 9 of us ) and since we all had been at it for years we would rotate who would be the High Priest/ess . Since we all had specific God/dess we would only call out in general for what ever the ritual was .

 When I do a Shamanic rite by myself , I am the traveler . When there is a main ritual the leadership goes to the eldest Shaman .

I do not consider myself a High priest . In most coven there is a hierarchy , which is a good way to stop chaos from running rampant . Over the years I have seen those that function as Priest/ess that have finish their third level but still did not understand the full meaning of how and why things worked .

She's called the Goddess Columbia , also known as the Goddess of the United State . She's based on the Roman Goddess Libertas .
That were she also gets the name Lady Liberty .
An like this country she's starting to fall apart .
Speaking of Columbia, how about Columbia Pictures and the Lady who served as a kind of logo before the movie?  Roman head piece and all?  She resembles Minerva and I'm sure that's no mistake.

But what really fascinates me are the archetypes and synbols that aren't obvious.  Even Betty Crocker is almost a stand in for a grain or hearth goddess.

Many witches, especially Wiccans and people who follow Wicca inspired traditions, consider themselves priests or priestesses of the gods, often specific gods.  For some of us our priesthood is mandatory upon initiation and is part of what defines us.  With very few exceptions we do not function as an intermediary between the gods and the laity. Few traditions have a congregation. So what does the priesthood mean to you? If you consider yourself, or have been declared at initiation to be a priest or a priestess as well as a witch, how do you serve that function in your religious life?

Not everything on this topic can or should be shared.  But as your conscience allows I would love to hear your views.

I love all raptors.  We have two pair of red-tailed hawks that nest every year in the same two trees at opposite ends of the property.  Bald eagles go through here all the time to get from one lake to the other and back.  Owls of various sorts as well as other species of hawk / falcon. 

Granted, I'm a bird brain!

You are correct, and they would fly round the world Midgard (Earth) and return with news of all that went on... And his wolves were called Geri and Freki.

Ok well here's a link to the picture... Anyways, I was really excited. That is the closest I've ever seen a Bald Eagle. I was 25-30 feet away. If (s)he had pooped, I'd have eagle poop on me! And (s)he sat there for half an hour and let me watch it, walk around under it. SO COOL!!  ;D
