Group Overview: Welcome to the Order of Gorgons
This is a private Circle of Witchcraft
"Medusa once had charms; to gain her love
A rival crowd of envious lovers strove.
They, who have seen her, own, they ne'er did trace
More moving features in a sweeter face.
Yet above all, her length of hair, they own,
In golden ringlets wav'd, and graceful shone."
– Ovid, Metamorphoses
This is a secret group. In this group we are all students in the ancient ways, drawing power and knowledge from our ancestral roots. The Gorgons, according to the legends of greek mythology were often shown as maidens with wings, most beautiful and radiant. However, the only mortal Gorgon, according to some particular myths, Medusa, who was also a Priestess of Athena was raped by the Sea god Poseidon. Athena could not panish the mighty Poseidon, therefore transformed Medusa into a horrid creature, with venomous snakes as hair and a petrifying gaze. But the story did not end. Even in death, Medusa's gaze was alive and turned to stone, even the Titan Atlas. Medusa is a symbol for our Order, as she was treated poorly and yet remained strong and powerful. As a beautiful maiden once, Medusa the Gorgon was a creature full of light and grace. It was in Medusa's death that her head was used as a powerful protoctive symbol, later used on Athena's shield and armor. It then became the Aegis. A symbol of wisdom, power, grace and potent death, if challenged. Also, according to some other legends in greek mythology, Gorgon blood had also powers. From the right side of Medusa's body her blood would heal anything, even save from death. It was brought to Asclepius as a panacea. From her left side though, her blood would be the most fatal poison. The duality of Cosmos is within Medusa as well.
In this group, we strive to return the balance. We seek to keep the balance between our Light and Darkness, the heal ourselves first and then heal the Earth. Each Gorgon Witch should be a beacon of knowledge, wisdom, grace and healing.
