Wot: With Water We Heal

AN INVITATION TO THE WITCHES OF THE WORLD - PLEASE SHARE WIDELY!

2018 Witches of Transgression Working:

With Water We Heal

The Divine Spiraling Rainbow Tribe is a Mystery Tradition within CAYA Pagan Congregation devoted to exploring and honoring sacred mxgender Mysteries. Our Priestxes embody the experience of identity beyond the gender binary, and celebrate the glittering prism of Divine existence that is Powerful, Delightful, Enthusiastic, Playful, Transformative, Magickal, Compassionate, and Reverent. We invite people of all genders or none, but especially mxgender and non-binary people, to join us in doing a public, world-wide working to bring a better world into being. By performing this ritual in our own spaces all over the world each Full Moon, we grid the Earth with the energy of the Divine, toward a shared vision of intentional change.

I want to participate. What should I do?



If you would like to join us in this effort, please:



  1. Share this working and its intent with other people you know, or in your own social media, using the hashtag #witchesoftransgression
  2. Follow our blog.
  3. Perform the following ritual at your own altar each Full Moon between now and December 22, 2018. We begin Jan. 1, 2018, but join us whenever you wish.

THE RITUAL WORKING: EVERY FULL MOON


You will need:
  • A bottle or jar to keep your Rainbow Water in
  • A dark bowl
  • Stones to add to your Rainbow Water (optional)
  • A copy of our ideals

The Working:
  • Fill your bottle with water. Holding it in your hands, visualize rainbows sinking into the waters. 
    You may also wish to add small crystals to your water. Fill your dark bowl most of the way with
    tap water. Go outside under the stars. Add a little Rainbow Water to your bowl and scry. What 
    needs healing inside you? How can you heal the world? Contemplate our ideals and the ways
    you embody them and act upon them. Do not dwell on the fears and pains of the past. Instead, 
    know that the world we wish to create is already coming into being. When you feel ready, anoint
    yourself with the water from your bowl and recite the Witches of Transgression prayer.



I whirl at the edge of the universe
Like my Ancxters before me
I am a breaker of chains
My love is unstoppable
Holding the Now to my heart
Embodying the future unfolding
There is nothing to fear
I am a Witch of Transgression



On the last full moon of the year, on Dec. 22, 2018, pour any remaining Rainbow water into a natural body of water such as a river or the ocean.

The Community

Witches of Transgression is open to all mxgender and non-binary people, people questioning their
 gender identity, and those who question the authority of the gender binary.

You may also wish to join our sisters in the Mothers of the New Time prayer, our brothers in the Fathers
of Change prayer on the dark moon, and families in the Children of Promise working.

Our Ideals



  • Honor for elders, respect for their survival strategies, attention to their stories and the complexities of their lived experiences, continual respect for their choices including correct gendering throughout end-of-life care and into death.
  • Communities connected by love and solidarity that center and amplify the needs and voices of 
    those who have been oppressed, bringing healing and justice
  • A world that creates and maintains spaces of creativity, playfulness, and innovation.
  • Alternatives to the prison industrial complex that better serve the needs of those who have been 
    oppressed
  • Equitable, accurate and accessible information and education which recognizes the intersectionality 
    of sex, sexuality, gender identity and gender expression
  • The establishment of public policies and laws which recognize and support the equal rights of all 
    people, regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, gender expression, and any other aspects of 
    being and identity.
  • Reclamation of the natural and sacred roles of mxgender people in their communities and cultures; 
    reclamation of repressed histories, stigmatized words and expressions; recognition that gender 
    diversity is a sign of a healthy and holistic culture and restoration of that vitality to our living communities 
    and societies by co-creating cultures of hospitality and freedom of being and expression.
  • Respect for the self-determined identities of all people; accurate use of the names, gender identities, 
    titles, and pronouns an individual claims, whether they are new or established; acknowledgement that 
    an individual's identity may change over time or society's understanding of their identity may change; 
    easy correction of medical or legal forms that do not reflect an individual's current identity.
  • Accessible and appropriate medical care for all people, especially vulnerable populations such as 
    the homeless and incarcerated; medical professionals knowledgeable about the particular health 
    issues of trans, mxgender, and intersex people; medical forms that allow a person to indicate their 
    sex, gender, and pronouns, and allow for these to change over time; an end to restrictive requirements
     for changing gender or sex.
  • Honor for children; an end to unnecessary medical intervention in the bodies of intersex infants and 
    youth; respect for clothing, toys, activities, friendship and other activities of childhood that do not 
    enforce a strict gender system, but allows for safe, respectful exploration and discovery; an end to 
    gender assignment before an individual is able to inform others of their identity; resistance to the 
    systematic oppression that threatens children who in some way transgress gender
  • Honor for our transcestors and ancxtors; respect for the various ways their identities have been 
    expressed over the millennia; honor for the unique cultural and spiritual roles they played; honor for
    individuals that played important roles; acknowledgement of the hardships they faced; reverence for 
    our named and unnamed transcestors and ancxtors.
  • Feel free to add any of your own ideals here.

These are the ideals of the Witches of Transgression
We are all forms of identity intersection in body, mind and spirit
We resist, refuse and reject unkind, unnecessary, and unnatural attempts to control or conform
 our inherent sense of selfhood
From the gleams in the eyes of the parents to the legends after we die, we call for an openness and 
loving curiosity about gender, sex, ability, spirituality, and all aspects of unique, individual selfhood
Respect the unknown without labeling it and honor that which has been self-identified.
SO MOTE IT BE!

Invocation for Inanna's Ancient Priestxes

O you holy ones of Inanna
You Priestxes of ancient times
We call to you

To the kurgarra, musicians of the goddess
Shaking and stamping and strumming
Making sounds pleasing to Her ears

To the sal-zikrum, the women-men priests of the goddess
Dressed in your sacred garb

To the kulu’u, the kalum, who composed the hymns singing her praise
The fire of Inanna burned in your hearts
As she has burned in ours

To the assinnu, you lament singers of Inanna
Swaying and calling to Her
Grieving her as she hung underground

And to asushummir, made of light
Made of dust to slip between the worlds
Neither man nor woman
You descended between the gates
To bring the waters of life, the food of life,
To Inanna, so She could rise again

O you holy ones of Inanna
Alight like I am alight
In between like I am in between
Be here now

Ancestors, we call you home

Hail and welcome!
