Horned Helmet

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Worn by the High Priest of a Wiccan coven when representing the Horned God. At the Samhain ritual, marking the change of season from winter to summer, the High Priestess places such a helmet on the head of the High Priest, symbolizing the passing of power. The God is predominant during the winter months and the Goddess during the summer months, dating from earliest times when it was necessary to hunt for food during the winter but possible to grow food during the summer.
