It is my understanding that what we call “sexual orientation” represents an energetic vibration that manifests in the physical realm as sexual preference. Every quality that we possess, everything that we are is the vibration of our soul(s), whether it is sexuality, artistic talent, or athletic prowess.
When we put it all together I imagine it to be rather like a song, the melody and rhythm being the orchestration of who we are on a soul level. Part of Witchcraft for me has been getting to know this song, and singing it with power.
It is sometimes taught that the point of Sex represents the attraction of forces that exist in a polarity, but what if this can also be understood to reflect resonance? With this in mind we might imagine the energy of the Sex point to be the underlying energy of existence, calling to itself through our awareness, and then merging with us. In my experience this difference is at once both subtle and distinct, allowing for a more deeply personal relationship with the energy.
The “Sacred Hermaphrodite”, the conjoining of the male/female principal is sometimes invoked as the spiritual force that embodies the Queer experience.
It is inaccurate to believe, however, that this is what being gay is: a place in between male and female. It can be that, at times, but it is not only that.
The Yin/Yang model doesn’t accurately describe the Universe in its entirety, just as the God/Goddess model fails to do the same. These are maps and metaphors that we have set into place in an attempt to have a relationship to the cosmos at large, but we should understand that these models themselves can not completely define the Universe.
No model ever could.
“Whatever you may say something is, it is not! … the map is not the territory … the word is not the thing.”
Polarities aside, there are other models that we may adopt in order to understand our unique power. One alternative is the concept of resonance, the idea of like powers calling to each other.
In a Queer relationship we can see this as two (or more) souls of like gender/vibration singing together creating a harmony. We might imagine a duet and the special quality of singing voices merging together. In psychological terms this is the concept of identification; we see ourselves in our partner, or perhaps those qualities in ourselves that we wish to accentuate.
This can be a powerful tool in terms of a magickal practice when applied to the relationships we share with the world, not just our romantic ones. We can see each other, as well as ourselves, in a lover, a star, or a dream.
We identify with the world in a very real sense, and by doing so real power is generated.
We become more fluid, no longer fixed to our limited illusory personality. When we identify with the world, we become the world.
