The Chalice and the Blade represents the conjunction of divine male and female energies, also know as the Great Rite. This image may also be familiar as Excalibre and the Holy Grail. The pentacle placed on the chalice symbolizes the active nature of the feminine energy, and the crescent on the blade or Athame represents the masculine energy as passive on the internal planes. A common salutation in Witchcraft, the phrase “Blessed Be” seals this sacred image. The ribbon spirals down the piece to symbolize the energy generated during this rite, creating a vortex of rebirth. May this energy bless your home with the harmoniously balanced energy of active and passive, masculine and feminine, yin and yang.
