w h a t   i t   m e  a n s   t o   b e   s a t y r

by Christopher Angelo (then known as WyldeSatyr)

Satyrs have it good, good and hard that is... (no pun intended - seriously - ok fine one was...) but i meant good and difficult as well... *grin* ...because yes, we do understand what pleasure is, and the importance of taking pleasure in what you do... but we therefore have a greater understanding of what it means to lack pleasure... of pain, sorrow and hurt... and though a satyr may have warmth in his heart and joy on his lips, look past that into his eyes.. look deep and you will see the Sorrow that all satyrs carry within...

I think it comes from the longing for the Dreaming, for the Glenn that gave us life.. where we ran with nymphs and other fey in a celebration of joy and life... It's a longing for the time before the Sundering - when some of us fey chose to clothe ourselves in flesh and leave Arcadia behind... it's a longing for pleasure unrestrained.. and its a longing for things i dont as yet have the words remembered, and things that surpass all words.... *sigh*....

Every Satyr has a Passion...something that gives them joy, something that allows them to create... something that defines (at least partly) who they are... if you understand a satyrs Passion, then it is a key to understanding that satyr... some have Art or Music as their Passion and it allows them to bring joy into this world to touch the souls of those around them and to feel the energy of the universe... my Passion is passion... it's sexual freedom, it's a lovers caress, it's soft and gentle and so much more... it's meshing with another so completely that i feel what they do, and they what i do...it's feeling their hurt and being able to comfort it... it's another level of empathy... and all satyrs are empathic (at least every one ive ever met or heard of)...

Satyrs are (at the basest level) healers... we heal minds, hearts, souls, and emotions... we bring joy to the sorrow filled and contentment to the restless.... we are the reminder to Live... to not take life so seriously, to not be so caught up in tradition or regulations that you cant enjoy what it is you do... for without light and love there is nothing... we are the reminder to the fey that all life is precious be it mortal or immortal... otherkin or just "other"... human, fey, animal, spiritual, or whatever... we are the reminder to the humans that there is wonder and pleasure out and about if one has the eyes and the heart to search for it... we are the dancers, the singers, the poets, the artisans, the healers, the seducers, the revelers, and many many other things as well....

if youve begun the road to Awakening and think you may be fae good luck... Find the Song that is in your SOUL and sing the Song that you find so's we all can hear...

Light Love and Laffter to all...
