"Here is transition. Now, transition is to the student a word of magic sound—echoing the past, prefiguring the future."
—Prof. T. H. McBride, "The Little Missouri Bad Lands," The Popular Science Monthly, 1883
Transition, the spirit of betwixt-and-between, has been deified in many cultures: the Roman gateway god Janus, the Egyptian Anubis, the Toltec Xipe Totec, and the list goes on. We explore dozens of transition deities in our Oracle of the Two-Fold Gods.
