Treasure House of Images

By Phillip Wright and Carrie West
The concept of magic is communicated by a whole host of signs and imagery - where nothing is as it seems. The magical world is concealed behind a veil of analogy and allegory; similes and metaphor- all of which is a complicated shorthand for the techniques of magic and its practices. Because no matter what rosy-tinted view we have of our Craft ancestors, they were not the composers and compilers of the infamous grimories and magical texts that have come down to us as such. They 'knew' things, of course, but few would have known how to record this knowledge for posterity and Craft remained an oral tradition for hundreds - if not thousands - of years. If we turn to Carl Jung, however, we find that the history of symbolism shows everything can assume some symbolic significance, providing we understand the context in which it is presented.
