I frequently picture myself as a tree. With deep roots to the earth's core, and branches that go out to the cosmos. Making me the conduit between the worlds. It's an interesting perspective.

These days I work more with nature spirits and ancestors than deities, really. But I still work with Aphrodite, and Cernunnos seems to be emerging as one that I might need to work with.

I am not a soft nor hard polytheist. I am in the middle. I am also a monist and animist.

(Note: I am not responsible for some of these gods being mere aspects of each other such as Ishtar becoming Aphrodite.)

Gods I work with and/or worship:

Nordic:
Odin
Thor
Loki

Aztec:
Tezcatlipoca
Tlaloc
Itzpapalotl (Cihuacoatl)
Quetzalcoatl

Italian:
Aradia
Diana
Lucifer

Celtic:
Sidhe in general
Morrigan
Cernunnos
Cerridwen
Brigid

Babylonian:
Enlil
Ishtar
Tiamat
Lilith (not a god but a spirit)

Canaanite:
El
Asherah
Astarte
Anath

Egyptian:
Aset (Isis)
Hathor
Ptah
Bes
Ra
Horus
Anubis
Bast
Sekhmet
Sobek

Hindu:
Krishna
Vishnu
Kali ma (my fave)
Ma Durga
Lakshmi
Sarasvati

Roman:
Luna
Hekate (Trivia)
Juno
Minerva
Diana
Aphrodite (Isis)

Spirits I do not have a working relationship with but I do take energy from in magick spells:

Sumerian and Babylonian:
Evil eye (now a universal and cross cultural phenomena.)
Marduk
Nabu

Egyptian:
Osiris

Roman:
Unidentified identity

Hindu:
Various asura, including Kali (not the goddess)

Nordic:
World serpent
Frejya

.. This is off the top of my head. I don't work with other divinities much but Samael is who I consider a bro and I love Naamah as well. I am fond of Azazel but have no experience with him.

I've devoted myself to the Norse pantheon with Allfather Odin as my patron since the age of 14. Though I have worked closely with various others over the years.

Norse: Odin, Thor, Loki

Hindu: Kali, and to some extent Krishna

Lovecraftian: Nyarlothotep

Celtic: Morrigan, Maeve.

And my fetch/spirit animal/whatever he is. I call him my wolf since I don't have a better word to describe him. Hellhound isn't inappropriate though he seems to prefer amarok over it.

There is a lot of staunchly Nordic people I have seen who have a special reverence for Kali ma and I don't know why.

That is honestly a very good question. For me personally her energies feel similar to Odins, but at the same time they are both colder than the old man, cold as the void itself, and yet also more nurturing, because she is Ma Kali. Its very confusing really lol

The deities of my eclectic pantheon chose me. I don't know if I could have come up with that variety on my own.

I'm a baby Wiccan so I have only worked with a small handful of deities so far, most of them being Celtic.

I call myself daughter of Danu as I have felt an instant connection with her. The moment I started researching Wicca she called out to me. I know that sounds silly, but it's true. I could not meditate, pray or even charge a bloody crystal without feeling her around me. Her name rang in my ears and I felt her energy. So, I gave in to her (I initially didn't want patron gods or goddesses) and now I work with her almost every day.

In terms of Gods, I just call out to The Horned God or sometimes the green man, but my practice has been very feminine. I feel a closer connection to the Goddess aspect of Wicca so have enjoyed experiencing her in her many forms.

Some examples of Goddesses I have worked with are:

• Brighid
• Gaia
• Isis
• Badbh
• Athena
• Diana
• Blodeuwedd
• The Morrígan
• Hecate
• Lilith
• Cerridwen
• Rhiannon
The Earth plays music for those who listen.

Hi!
I believe there are numerous gods and goddesses. I think we just have different titles for the same beings throughout different cultures and religions. I also believe all the planets are souls, and they are god/goddess in their own right.

I myself focus devotion on Selene/Luna but also pay my respects to Gaia (earth) and Helios (sun) in more practical ways. I believe the material world is part the divine feminine energy (Shakti in Eastern religion, Shekkinah in kabbala Jewish teachings) and that She is represented through many goddesses. It just depends on our personal make up how She appears =)
