At some point recapitulation is always necessary, in fact it is precisely when you are ready to meet the first of these seven helpers that you can do nothing but recapitulate. Lucky are we who need not draw the near death experience card in order to conduct this life review. There are many ways to recap: play reruns of your life movies in your mind, make a collage, list lessons learned, etc. just take the time to do it completely so that you are clear about what you want to leave behind or take forward if you must.The guardian of Transitions is a true Trickster, and when presented with fuzzy intent may leave you chasing your own tail. My choice of doorway for this most recent meeting was the crossroads but there are many other options (such as the vision quest circle) and gentler ones are no less productive. A meditative walk with some left turns may be in order,or traveling to the other side of train tracks, crossing a bridge, even fording waters. Decide on a gift to bring as a gratitude offering for simply meeting the ally/god/goddess whom you feel can best assist you. Each invitation to meet is the ceremony, a ceremony for the only true power: Love. Implied in the act of invitation is the understanding of each potential ally’s right to refuse or defer the invitation. (My suggestion to pursuers of more forceful magicks is to look elsewhere.)Returning after leaving your offering and completing your petition you may decide to construct an altar for this guardian somewhere near the threshold of your home. You will know if your request has been accepted because the opportunity for the second meeting (the ceremony of Death) will appear close on the heels of Transitions’ change. Good Luck.
