Wicca Magical Deities: A Guide to the Wiccan God and Goddess, and Choosing a Deity to Work Magic With by Lisa Chamberlain

I usually hate History books, but not this book though i skimmed through certain god and goddesses i wasnt so keen on. Osiris and Isis to the win. And thank god for Rick Riordan, so that I actually knew what they were talking about. Cant think of a better person than Riordan to have taught me about Egyptian, Roman, Greek mythology in the most interesting way. And for all my Percy love, i thought my choice would certainly be a Greek Deity, but here iam rooting for Egyptian beliefs and all. Thats one thing about Wicca, it never forces its decisions on you, you have your own choice based on what you connect with and nothing is wrong or right. If I didnt know the path i chose was right already, maybe now I know for sure.

Wiccan views of divinity

Wiccan Goddesses are part of the nature orientated religion followed by a diverse group of modern witches and some pagan groups. It is essentially a dualistic belief system where the male and female energies are worshipped in balance. Geraldine Gardner is considered the founding father of modern Wicca which draws heavily upon pagan and hermetic ideology. For most Wiccans, the Lord and Lady are seen as complementary polarities representing masculine and feminine, force and form. All of creation results from the interplay and tension between these two complementary forces. This duality of the divine is reflected in the structure of many covens which are jointly headed by the high priest and priestess. Traditionally the Wiccan Goddesses are further split into three different aspects known as the triple goddess, reflecting the mother, maiden and crone.

However, she features prominently in mythology and is also a creator goddess. Cerridwen, Keeper of the Cauldron Cerridwen is known in Welsh mythology as the keeper of the Cauldron of the Underworld in which knowledge and inspiration are brewed. She is considered a goddess of prophetic powers, and because her symbol is the Cauldron, she is an honored goddess in many Wiccan and Pagan traditions. Learn about the Dagda, and how he ended up making himself lose his own power. Similar in many aspects to Cernunnos, Herne is celebrated in the autumn months, when the deer go into rut. He is seen as a god of the common folk, and is typically recognized only around the Windsor Forest area of Berkshire, England.

Posted By: Dattatreya Mandal July 2, When it comes to the ancient Celts , the scope is not really about a singular group of people who dominated some specific region or realm. Instead, we are talking about a vast and variegated culture that made its presence felt all the way from the Iberian peninsula Spain and Portugal and Ireland to the frontiers of Liguria in Italy and the upper Danube. Suffice it to say, their mythology rather mirrored this multifarious scope, with various tribes, chiefdoms, and even later kingdoms having their own set of folklore and pantheons. Essentially, what we know as Celtic mythology and whom we know as Celtic gods and goddesses is borrowed from a patchwork of oral traditions and local tales that were conceived in pre-Christian Gaul France , Iberia, Britain, and Ireland.

  1. Wiccan views of divinity are generally theistic , and revolve around a Goddess and a Horned God , thereby being generally dualistic.

  2. One of the most beautiful and widely-celebrated aspects of Wicca , particularly in comparison to almost every other religion to come out of the last few thousand years, is its equal emphasis on the feminine and masculine.
