Passion and all that entails – lust, infatuation, rage,
aggression, obsession, power, drive and motivation, domination, feminine power,
She is ruled by fire – the fearsome aspect of the planetary
energy of Venus, volcanic and volatile. In a sense, she is the domineering
match to the masculine Mars, the traitorous seductress. Despite our own moral
connotations with such – she is not marred by our own virtue, for she exists
unabashed and guiltless. She cannot be controlled, she cannot be mastered, and
she cannot be owned. Her rage is explosive, her hunger insatiable, she is decadence
and gluttony, she is wrath and vanity – and she will not be judged for it. What
she wants, she takes; what she desires, she deserves. Conversely, she is the master of passion – with the power to
incite and dispel it. She is the dichotomy – the renunciate, the hedonist – and
everything in between. Under the guise of the Red Sister, she is the picture of
virtue – she who abhors the material and casts away all worldly possessions,
she is the ascetic and the chaste. “You may know my nature – but do not presume
to know my intention.”
Offerings, including but not limited to:
All things beautiful, lush and expensive – fine wines,
champagne, perfumes, sweet cigars/cigarettes, beauty supplies, jewelry, roses,
red candles bathed in oils, sugars and syrups, decadent foods (such as
chocolate or anything deemed an aphrodisiac); but on the darker side: knives, sulphur,
blood, red chiles, illicit substances (though not recommended – for your own
(For the Red Sister: white or red roses, anointing oils,
flavorful “peasant” foods)
Ideal locations for workings:
Taverns/bars, brothels, street-corners,
places of luxury or excess – she is also particularly suited to bath rituals
To Call Her
Gather a collection of offerings, a square of red cloth or a
mirror on which you have drawn her Seal (above). Drawing it in red lipstick may
garner you some bonus points. Upon this, the offerings will be presented.
Prepare yourself by dabbing on some perfume or inspecting your own image in a
mirror. Music is always a welcome addition to workings with her, as dancing is
a great way to align yourself to her energy. When you are ready, light 3 or 7
red candles and begin your working. Hymns may be sung and prayers may be said,
though I offer none. As with the Black Mother, I recommend speaking freely –
give yourself over to the power and allow the words to flow ecstatically.
Passion is rarely planned, but captured in a moment. Allow it to run through
Once the connection has been made, you might make a plea to
her. What that will be is entirely dependent on what you need, but do so
honestly. She can easily see through lies and she will draw from you truth –
often truths you do not want to face yourself. But without facing them, you
cannot be free, and you cannot grow. Allow your guilt and shame to be expunged
by her fire and let it ignite within you its passion. Be warned, though,
obsession follows her – be sure to set up clear lines when working with her. I
don’t lay a circle often, but for this it is recommended.
When you are through, leave the offerings for her. Thank her
graciously and give her a respectful bow. You may now leave the circle.
It is recommended that upon the completion of your request
that you leave another offering to her as a gift of thanks.
For those familiar with Quimbanda, many manifestations of Pomba Gira are a perfect example of the Red Queen – and much of this working mimics her observance, though less specialized based on aspect.
Take the clothes off, but never take your heart out.
In every kiss, do not miss the bliss.
Don’t spill your heart out, you’re just a girl in his list.
The romance stays in the bed, no candlelight dinners or walk in the parks.
He’s in for the pleasures, not for the sparks.
That’s the agreement, just the skin and the bones touching.
Yet why is your heart aching?
A love story made of wine, cigars and clothes on the floor.
Before the sun shines, the muse will be left alone for he already went out the door.
Don’t say the three words you fool. It’s the unsaid rule.
Secret Santa! who gets who and what do they get them?
Everyone buys a little something for Dogmeat. Not Including Sole as everyone’s Sole is different.
