Goddess and God.
are surrounded with magic and beauty every day.
The special people we share each day with are part of that magic and
beauty. It is easy to see the Maiden
within a young daughter, or the nurturing Mother in your own mom, or the wise
Crone in your grey-haired grandmother.
With love and reverence, we often talk about the Old Ones. Can we see the Old Ones in our own "dear
ones" and within our own loving relationships?
offers a special type of union, more so than other relationships we share. Romance is one small example of that place
where Goddess and God join, becoming one.
know the Goddess and God as union, rather than two separate entities, ask
yourself how you feel when sharing special moments with your loved one, versus
being alone. What message can you see in
this union? How does it apply to your
own love relationship? This is your own
personal aspect of union. It is no
accident that Pagan symbols for Deity are male and female; it is an analogy to
a very beautiful part of nature!
life is like sacred space. When you
invite someone into your life, it becomes as sacred as any Invocation. You draw them into your Circle, and into
yourself. See the time you share with
your loved one as a religious event. See
your loved one as your own private aspect of the Goddess or God. And as you treat them, you also treat Them.
limit yourself to seeing only the Goddess within your woman or the God within
your man. We each carry both. She can show you new sides to the God,
stronger and gentler than you could ever imagine. And he can show you new sides of the Goddess,
more tender and caring than you might expect.

experience. "She of a Thousand
Names" can also include soft loving names like Sweetheart, Honey or
Dear. And the "Horned One" can
become a very tangible part of your life!
you share special "holidays" with your loved one? Anniversaries, birthdays, or even Valentine's
Day can all become special spokes in your own private Wheel of the Year. Each year, do you remember that first loving
day (or night) of romantic initiation?
Celebrate these events with great joy; your celebrations are the most
sympathetic magic you could ever do to bless your relationship!
your love were like the moon, what phase would it be in right now? Over time, do you see your relationship both
wax and wane? Can your love renew
itself, becoming full again, even after the darkest of times?
you see your love as the union between Goddess and God, you may find your
relationship to be the Greatest Rite of all!
