If you've chosen a pantheon or tradition, which god is your patron god and which goddess is your matron goddess? I tend to switch back and forth, but my matron goddess tends to always stay the Celtic Rhiannon goddess and my patron god switches back and forth between Lugh and Pan. How about you all...Pagans and Hindus and other people who follow a Pagan path?
I have a special affinity with cats so I'm naturally attracted to gods/goddesses that have a link with felines. I am particularly attracted to Bast of the Egyptian Pantheon. I am also attracted to Freya of the Norse Pantheon. I have not yet found my God yet as I am still soul searching to find what I believe in.
She is the goddess of wisdom, even actually mentioned in christian texts at one point. But the name is actually greek and means wisdom therefore I look at her as being a greek goddess. Here's a link with some more information about her http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_(wisdom)
you're very welcome. I actually like doing research on gods and goddesses. I've always been interested in the Greek goddess Artemis, but never considered her to be the one I follow. Though I may just have to think about that
For a goddess I tend to lean towards Danu. I'm really into Celtic Paganism, so I tend to lean towards those deities. I haven't really found a god I feel connected with. However, I don't entirely consider myself Pagan, but more into Native American Spirituality. I tend to believe in what the Natives thought more so than Paganism.
Also, thanks for linking about Sophia, Cresent! I've never heard of her before, so I'll definitely have to look into it.
Kitty I am not in the slightest surprised. They are very full on! It's a decision I thought long about once I had experienced there presence, and decided to make the decision to live my life alongside them
I follow God as a catholic . I am fascinated by Poseidon and Demeter and those are my two favorite God/ Goddess respectively. I think I am Earthy like Demeter and I feel how she must have felt when Persephone went to live in the underworld. I guess that is foreboding. I just like the Triton and the power over water for Poseidon.
Sekhmet has been my patron goddess for many years. As for gods, Odin appeared once in a dream. I found him very special, although I do not follow the Norse path and know little about it.
However, I honour deities of all pantheons. When I am away from home, I like to make a libation to the "gods of place" of wherever I happen to be. This has resulted in some wonderful experiences
I have developed very deep ties to Wales since moving here. I really must immerse myself more in the Welsh pantheon, although I find it difficult to piece together the information. Some years back, I did a long pathworking/meditation on the story of Blodeuwedd, which gave me some very interesting insights and a different view of the story.
Unity, which lies beyond the Veils of Negative Existence, is neither male nor female, but is also beyond our comprehension. For that reason, Unity manifests in many different forms, to enable each of us, should we so wish, to develop an I-Thou relationship with a particular form or forms through which we find meaning, love and joy in our individual lives.
I thought I'd revive an old posting, as I found it quite interesting. Who is your patron God, and matron Goddess? I use the Egyptian pantheon so:My Patron God is AnubisMy Matron Goddess is Maat (hence my name......
I am going through a really difficult time in my life right now and really could use some strength to make it through it. My patron goddess is Aglaia, but I feel like she is telling me to seek out another goddess to ask...
I was wondering about gods and goddesses. I've done a lot of research but this topic still escapes my grasp. Is there a certain god or goddess that should be worshipped? Can whichever god or goddess you worship, be...
The Greeks as well as the Pagans know why gods need worshipers. They feed on worship. That's why the Christian god wants worshipers and threatens anyone who doesn't worship him with eternal torture. Let it be resolved...
If god showed himself to you and commanded you like he did Abraham to kill your son or daughter and have him/her be burned and sacrificed, wouild you do it? How would you feel about god giving you this command?
