Patron Dieties
« on: August 19, 2011, 05:16:35 PM »
After nearly 2 decades as a Wiccan, I have actually discovered my male patron dieties. All my life I had always felt more connected to female dieties. Kali, Diana, & Venus being the three I felt closest too. We are preparing for a trip to Egypt soon & I was doing a little research to "bone-up" on my Egyptian mythology. During this time I realized Sobek & Anubis were my Patrons. I have always loved Anubis, no idea why, but never thought of him as a possibility since I felt no real connection to the Egyptian pantheon. Sobek is the crocodile god, a seemingly obvious choice for me but he is also a protector of mothers. This is something all my patrons have in common along with protecting animals. I was wondering if anyone wanted to share who their dieties are & what it was that drew you to them?

If I have one, I have no idea who it is. :|

Wolfman, the first question is, are you pagan? The patrons I am talking about refer to the dieties a pagan/wiccan/etc feels most connected. If the answer is yes, then it may just take time for you to find the one(s).

I have only really learned about greek and egyption, but out of those gods, I would guess Thoth. But I don't know much about the whole patron thing, so I could be completely off. If any body has some info they could give me, or somewhere reliable that I could do a search on, that would be appriciated. But don't suggest the monstropedia, cause my antivirus doesn't allow that to come up.

Anubis came to me in a reading and asked me to call on him for protection. Awesome. So I did and how thankful I am because of it. I've resonated well with Bast (luna) and Sekhmet (solar) who continue to be a strong influence. I love all things feline.. so I found it interesting when Anubis came to the forefront. Yet unsurprising.. Anubis =  Jackel (dog) so once again a balance, only this time the feline/feminine aspect. I am strongly drawn to Egyptian pantheon, I have come to realise that I had lived and died during its reign on the world at that time.

Mine was up here.

Coatlicue aka Teteoinan (  :-D )
Aztec mythology as the Mother of Gods, and the patron deity for people who die in childbirth.

As for why she clicked with me...
Let's just say I've had some nasty experiences...

I've been dreaming about Nyx lately. Wonder if she's someone I should be considering?

That could mean Mora as well...

"The dream lover called the Mara was a thief cloaked in darkness. Taking vapor form, she slipped into sleeping chambers through tiny chinks and crevices, then assumed the shape of a woman to claim the souls of men."

"An implacable despoiler and an enemy of humankind from the beginning of time, Lilith the Seducer slid into men's dreams, stealing her victims' vigor and shattering their spirits."

That, would suck to be you Azzy.


I've been dreaming about Nyx lately. Wonder if she's someone I should be considering?

"Born of primal Chaos, the Greek Goddess Nyx soared across the sky each night, draping the heavens with her black veil and bejeweling her trail with stars."

Post your dreams in the Dreaming section, and we can talk about it!
