About Immaculate Conception

The most vivid symbol of lunar receptiveness is the mirror. Often the Goddess herself is shown holding a mirror for this reason. It is also a symbol of purity, or virginity. Though reflecting everything around it, the mirror itself is untouched by the reflections it contains. This is a true analogy whereby to unerstand the Immaculate Conception, which is nothing to do with physical sex, but with how the Materia Prima, or the original substance of the Universe, holds all forms, even the Universal Man himself, while Herself remaining untouched. A mirror on the altar can remind you that this is the detached, yet sensitive state you wish to retainin order not to be carried away by all that you reflect and are required for.
