Solitary Witchcraft - The God

Updated on December 21, 2016

The Three Faces of the God

 This article focuses on the concept of the God as I perceive Him. Much like the central concept of the Goddess as three separate aspects, the God is viewed in the same way. In balance with the Goddess, the God is viewed as the Son, the Father and the Guide. I have not seen many other neopagan belief systems that comprise the Triple Goddess in balance with the Triple God, however I feel equal time should be given to The God. This article will focus on the masculine part of the Wicca’s duotheistic theological system.

The Son

SHAKARU (shah-KAH-roo ):

Shakaru according to the Pawnee mythology was the God of the Sun. On the command of the Great Spirit, Shakaru gave light and warmth to the world. With Pah, the Goddess of the Moon they produced a son called ClosedMan. This son mated with Daughter of the Evening Star and Morning Star and together humans came into being. The Pawnee believe that they are descended from the first children of the heavens.

In my visualization of the Son he is a dark skinned young man. His age ranges from his late teens to early twenties. His skin is dark brown verging on ebony black. He is slender and muscular with tight curly black hair. He wears black silky pants and is barefoot. He smiles widely, his teeth white in his dark face. His brown eyes watch the Maiden dance in the flower filled meadow. His love for her is like the warm radiation of the spring sun.

The Son is wise, but he is playful and full of life. He is quick to take on different forms of animals and birds to dance with the Goddess. He is the friend you spend the day with and the confidant who always has your back.

The Father

TIRAWA (Teer-RAH-wah)

He is known as the Power Above, creator of the heavens and the earth. Tirawa created the world in the shape of a bowl floating in space. He gave the stars the task of supporting the world and protecting it. Tirawa called the gods together to announce his plan to create the human race and promised the gods a share of power for their help. Shakaru the Sun was assigned to provide light and heat, Pah the Moon was assigned the night, and Tirawa placed the Evening Star, the Mother of All Things in the west. The Morning Star he set to guard the east. After the gods had raised dry land from the watery chaos, Tirawa told Sun and Moon to make love, and they gave birth to a son. He then told Evening and Morning Star to make love, and they gave birth to a daughter. So the human race was made.

The Father is at the height of his power through the summer. He is the golden man, tall and muscular with skin of golden bronze. His hair is wavy falling from his brow like the mane of a lion. He wears leathers of butter yellow that mold to his body. He is barefoot as he walks the fields, his arm around the Goddess.

His golden brown eyes are warm like the sun and filled with warmth. All things grow and mature in his wake. He is the protector. He guides with an iron will that is wrapped in unconditional love. He is always there to support you mature and take your first steps on your own.

The Guide/The Sage

HEMASKAS (Hem-MAAS-Kahs)

Hemaskas is also known as Raven the well known Native American Trickster God who is known by many tribes under many names. Raven represented the shaman's powers and a belief in transformation between human and animal spirits. Raven symbolizes change in consciousness and is the mark of a shape shifter.

The Guide, also known as the Sage, is an older man with brown skin and long silver hair. He wears decorated leathers and walks with an inscribed staff. There are lines around his mouth and eyes from laughter and smiles.

When your time in this life is at its end, it is the Guide who walks with you to the Summerland and the Sage who aids you in the lessons you’ve learned until it is time for you to be reborn to the next cycle of life. Just as he is reborn each Yule.

      I agree with you, Gemsong..there's definitely something bigger than ourselves out there and it speaks to each of us in a completely unique way. Pushing a belief onto someone else is like trying to explain a dream to the full effect that you felt it yourself. It just doesn't work.

      Nice pics, by the way ;)

      I disagree with you. That makes us even. I believe everyone to believe as they choose. I don't believe anyone has the right to push their religion on others.

      Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well.

      Christ appears to disagree with you!

      All are free to believe as they wish. There is no One true way.

      I believe only in Jesus. Him alone I know. He is the beginning and the end. He is the Alpha and Omega. Without Him nothing that was made that could have been made.

      Thanks. I admit the one was a bit of eye candy but that's how I see Him sometimes.
