: The High Priestess and High Priest of a Coven are NOT the earthly representative of the Gods (or Goddess as may be the case)
. The High Priestess and High Priest of a Coven are mortal, and plagued with all the shortcomings that go with being Mortal. There is no question that a sign of evil within the coven is when the leadership attempts to assume the role of a deity or other supernatural. It is the duty of each coven member (Acolyte to Priest/Priestess)
to remain vigilant for signs of evil.
To help remember to say an oration to Gods [i](or Goddess as may be the case) usually magic circles are employed (but that's is for another time)

THE DARK MOON: the period three days before the New Moon. Traditionally, this is a time for Rest when no magic is attempted. Deep Meditation and Vision Questing (generally speaking)
this is the best period introspection and not the practice of magic.
When WICCA speaks of "meditation" it is a practice that anyone can participate or engage in as a time for quiet contemplation or reflection. Many participance in the practice use a white bowl with crystal clear water as a reflecting pool to see your face as you deepen into ones self.
