Hi this is my first time posting in the forum so sorry if its not in the right place
This isnt so much about the battle of the sexes as the way men and women seem to approach magick in a very different way.
I'm not saying ALL men or ALL women. But I've Described as Male and Solar and Witchcfaft as Female and Lunar. (with crossover points) The idea I had was the custom that the Moon is a 'she' and the Sun is a 'he' I bet you it was the men who erected the menhirs and probably women who did potions and stuff.
Men have a tendancy to disassemble things, pull them appart and rebuild to see how it works. Logical. Women seem to be more inclined to make themselves a part of the matter, and work from the inside out. Empathy I guess. They both have their merrits, and both equally have their downsides
Men seem to need formula and ceremony and structure. Whereas women less so. Am I imagining this? Ceremony and ritual and structure seem to something that men do. Men form make "clubs". From workings men clubs to trade unions to the masonic even wicca and all "structured" in some way.
Now please note. What I dont want it people running in here and saying "Im a woman and I do this" or "Im a guy and I do that" and know there are exceptions, but generally speaking, there does seem to be a difference.
Of course we are also talking in huge generalisations, and I think these generalisations have done magic a disservice. Wicca is often seen from the outside as female-oriented,
when the truth is it does seek for a system of duality between male and female, where the positives in each sex are recognised. This false impression is leading to a struggle to find decent male witches, at least in my experience
I dont think one is better than the other BTW, its just an observation, has anyone else noticed it?
