Crossroads - Road Opener

500.00

The Crossroads is the liminal state, the place between places, times and states of being. It is the arena wherein one thing becomes another, where the physical world and the Otherworld meet, and the intersection between phases of reality. Crossroads are many and can be found everywhere. They can be literal road or path crossings, the transition of day into night, land into sea, waking into dreaming, the unmanifest becoming manifest, or the blurred edge that divides the living and the dead. When we work magic we ourselves become the Crossroads.

This version of the Crossroads has two serpents crossing the horizontal path, one rising and one descending. These are the transference of magical energies (the Fire Snakes from Six Ways) into and out of manifestation, as well as the passage of information or Spirit (and spirits!) between the realms Above and Below.

The second face is for Road Opening. Road Opening can be thought of as the foundational piece of magic that allows/helps all others to manifest. This is easily visualized by thinking about getting on the highway and hitting traffic that moves at a crawl. Soon, your vehicle (or magic, or self) is blocked in front, and as more cars arrive at the blockage, behind you. You’re stuck, or at least moving very, very slowly.

Road Opening work is like the emergency services folks getting the blockage out of your way so you can move forward again easily. But it also has other aspects, the largest being Optionality. When we have more options, more ways forward, more available possible pathways towards what we seek, we can choose the ones that are most suitable for us at the moment. Perhaps there is an easier way than that which we have thought of or perhaps a more effective approach. Road Opening work clarifies these options, and hopefully, allow us to wisely choose the ones that are best for us in our current situation.

Handmade from sheets of sterling silver. As a two-sided piece, this item is not hallmarked as sterling silver, as I am unwilling to choose a face to damage with the hallmark!

Being entirely hand crafted, each piece is unique, so even pieces based on the same design have significant variations and are one-of-a-kind.

Weight is about 14 grams, and 37mm tall x 29mm wide x 4mm thick (1.45” x 1.14” x .16”).
