To Go, To dare, To be silent, To know, To Will
This is also known as the Witch’s Pyramid. Also known as The Four Powers of the Magus or the Four Secrets of the Sphinx. To Know (Noscere-Latin) represents the element of Air, To dare (Audere) represents the element of Water. To Will (Velle) represents the element of Fire, and to be silent (Tacere) represents the element of earth. Together they become “voces mysticae”. For most in the craft to be silent proves one of the most difficult lessons to learn. when all the powers are assembled together, then the fifth and most sacred power occurs, the power of Spirit (quintessence) without this sacred power the ritual/spell will break apart before your desired outcome can manifest.

To Dare: meaning you have pushed fear behind you and will be courageous and proactive in everything you do. You will believe in yourself and have faith not in just yourself but the universe around you.
