Merry Meet, The following is an excerpt from the SCWF Year and One Day. I hope it helps out; In most of the Wiccan traditions, the Goddess and the God exist in a union of harmony and balance, as represented to us in the “Wheel of the Year”. Both equal but separate, each having a light and dark side and each part of the greater whole yet unique unto themselves. In Wicca, both the Goddess and the God are revealed to us in their youth, their maturity and in their old age, thus demonstrating to us life in all its… Read more »

Yes, some of see the individual god/dess as aspects of something greater. We as human have a limited understanding so for many personlizing this force as lord and lady helps and speaks to us.

It is really a matter of what has the most meaning to you. The Divine is with in search and you will find it there and then in all things.

Many do exactly that.

Our coven is spread internationally, so the few times we can actually get together, we simply use “Lord and Lady”, because we all do not have the same deities.

Many people *never* feel the need to find a patron and matron deity, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that and sticking with God and Goddess.

EDIT:
I must say that my personal experiences with Wiccans do not agree with Gypsy’s. The vast majority of Wiccans I know are hard polytheists and do NOT view them all as aspects.

Aphrodite is NOT just an aspect of The Morrigan.

answer: Yes, usually referred to as “Lord” and “Lady” with a generic imagery in mind. A bit like Christians having a vague picture of “G=d” in their head when praying.

Absolutely. Most Wiccans see the various Gods and Goddesses as aspects of the Lord and Lady. Yet all are one.
