I'm a Neophyte Witch: How do I chose my pantheon of Gods/Goddesses to pray to when doing rituals/magic?
I am a self-proclaimed solitary neophyte, and I’m slowly discovering my spiritual path. I’ve always had a strong interest in/attraction to Ancient Egyptian mythology, history, art, and geography. I am considering following the Egyptian Magical path (and addressing that particular pantheon). What is your advice for the novice who wants to discover his/her pantheon? I realize that there is little importance in the names I give my Lady and her Lord, but I want to connect with my passion and heritage, and all signs point to Egypt.
My advice is to exactly what you’re already doing–to research the deities and discover which you are most drawn to. I’d say you’re doing just fine so far.
Even in my coven, we have a wide variety of Names addressed by the various members–which is why in circle, we usually just say “Lord and Lady.” They cover a range of pantheons– Greco-Roman, Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, and Hindu.
Bright blessings, fellow seeker, and good luck.
