"Be A Light Unto Darkness So You May Be The Balance Of The Universe"©
Reverend High Priest Alexander Cabot
Born in Havana, Cuba, on an “old moon” in September’s autumnal equinox, he was an only child, because his mother had a miscarriage before he came along. The miscarriage was the result of a hex she suffered, due to an envious and deceitful relative. Alexander grew up knowing that he was born to counteract that spell, and to save his mother’s happiness and life.
Living in New York, at a very tender age he was taught the majickal traditions of a line of men in his family. Within that lineage, his great grandfather, grandfather, and father, all Masons with strong backgrounds in the occult sciences, presented a good influence for him to model himself after. Although he wasn’t English, he was genuinely curious and heartfully drawn to British Traditional Witchcraft at the early age of eleven, through his study of many authors including, but not limited to, Gerald Gardner, Sybil Leek, and Doreen Valiente.
At thirteen years of age, he was initiated into Palo Mayombe, a Cuban tradition stemming from the Congo region of Africa. Then he began his spiritual studies of “El Envangelio De Alan Kardec” at El Templo La Luz, Cristobal De Jesus, and was crowned on his 19th birthday. African spirit guides carried him to be initiated into a couple of African diaspora religions, such as the Lucumi Tradition (Santeria in Cuba). He was the right-hand man for an Oriate, or Chief High Priest.
Alexander was later initiated and taught two traditions, namely the Welsh Tradition and the New York Wica tradition, a derivative of Gardnerian witchcraft, by Lady Rhea throughout the ’90s. He rested from study and focused on his surgical profession for a number of years after that. Having developed and stabilized his career calling, he decided to return to studies and fellowship of the craft, renewing his spiritual journey, on the Great Sabbat, Samhain, in 2009. Being mentored, initiated, and ordained by the “Official Witch of Salem”, Reverend Laurie Cabot, High Priestess, his communal energies are now in Salem, Massachusetts as well as in New York City, where he resides, being a High Priest of The Cabot Kent Hermetic Temple and an elder in his community.
