Eight Gates?

Post by Gaia Dragoncat » Fri May 04, 2007 7:16 am

I was hoping that someone might be able to provide me with more information about the eight Gates of the Underworld. Then that it's a journey that second Degree witches have to go through. Anything is welcomed. Links, articles, opinions. I've done independant research and can't seem to hit anything useful.

This would all depend on which tradition you're working with.

Do you mean Wiccan, or one of the other paths? Many traditions would describe themselves as "witch".

The more we know the more we can help. 8-)

8 gates? well... sounds greek to me, but i know christianity says 666, and satinism says satans number is 9... are you talking about greek mythology? ya know, ceberus, hades, styx, the whole shabang...

I think the original tale is Egyptian. But it's along the same line as Greek myth yes. I do mean Wiccan yes. I found a meditation in a book about the 8 gates of light. But it mentioned the 8 gates to the Underworld, which is basically a way to further yourself in the path. But no matter where I go to find the information I can't seem to get any further in my search. I'm hoping that it's not only for people who are in a tradition.
