Wicca Online Community For Pagans and Wiccans


So I've been thinking a lot lately about pantheons. Everyone I've discussed with seems committed to just one, but, do I have to? What if I feel called to a deity from Greek and another one that's Celtic? I'm very new to everything really, started on my path about a year ago, maybe a year and a half. I really just observed others and didn't participate. After a sad break up I was left without anyone to guide me or support me. I've felt pulls to deities from all different pantheons! It would break my heart to have to pick, so I guess my question, do I have to choose?

Heather, the way I see it you have to already have a relationship before you approach a deity or pantheon for help with a task.  I'd be reluctant to just "choose" them for what I need.

They way I do it is I chose which patheon I need for the task at hand that spell or ritual. And then I have one that sits on my alter at all times because he is the main one that watches over me at all times.

You don't necessarily have to do what others are doing. You do whatever feels right to you.

It's like this, you have a lot of friends right? It's the same with gods. But you also have a best friend. It's also the same, as your godly "best friend" would be your patron god/goddess. Hope I helped and blessed be!

I totally agree with Serena Quiet Storme. I think finding the perfect balance is essential when honouring more than one deity. It's important to try not to favour one over the other. Be sure to give thanks appropriately to each deity

That's generally the way I'd interpret it too, but often people from different traditions and varying levels of experience use terms in different ways. Some people might be talking about high magic and worship as opposed to folk magic. That's why I was trying to get a little more info.

Divine magic is magic that calls on deity or angelic energies to do. Magic at its base is moving around energies to your chosen end. Now, some have different idea of what magic is, or confuse "magical' with magic. You can take that as you wish but I thought it was pretty clear anything involving working with energies pulled from or loaned by deities or angelic beings.

Okay.  What I'm getting at is what kind of magic?  Spells?  Worship?  Other?

Talon, what do you mean by divine magic?

Comment by Serena Quiet Storme on June 11, 2017 at 11:24am

I don't think you have to choose, but if you're honoring two at once, perhaps make sure they'd get along. Even if they're from the same pantheon, sometimes deities don't have a harmonious relationship. I associate the God with the sun or the sky and the Goddess with the moon or the earth, so I like finding a balance.
