Cool! Well maybe Wiccan Teen would like the Greek pantheon? We could make a list for many of the different areas and those who were worshiped there.

So, what do we have then?
Celtic
Greek
Roman
Norse
Slavic
Native American
Chinese
Japanese
Indian (Hindu)
Africa (I bet this one would be regional)
Aztec
Mayan
South America (whew! another large one)
Australia /New Zealand

Sheeze ... this list could get lengthy, so maybe just the ones folks here on the board relate with.?

Wow...yeap, narrowing that down a bit would be a good idea, me thinks. If someone had an interest in one of the less frequently mentioned pantheons, they could contribute their own list to the thread. :)

Well, make a list of correspondences between, say the Greek pantheon, and what cards you think each deity could be associated with (for example, Apollo can be associated with the Sun card). If you'd like to make one for the Greeks, by all means, go for it. :)

I can have one up for the Norse pantheon later today.

Alrighty, here's a list I put together with potential correspondences of the major arcana to the Norse gods. Many of them repeat (partially due to the variety of names many of the same deities in this pantheon go by), but I wanted to give as many as I could. I'd love to hear thoughts on it! :)

0 Fool= Loki, Odin
1 the Magician= Odin, Loki,
2 the High Priestess= Frigg, Freja, Eir, Fulla, Sága
3 the Empress= Frigg, Gefion, Freja, Hel, Sif
4 the Emperor= Odin, Njord, Thor
5 the Hierophant= Vár, Vidar
6 the Lovers= Freyr, Freja, Gefion, Heimdall, Ēostre, Lofn
7 the Chariot= Skadi, Ull, Njord
8 Strength= Thor, Sigyn (I include Sigyn here because of the amount of strength, physical and emotional, it took to remain at Loki's side and catch the venom in her little bowl, to spare him as much suffering as she could.)
9 the Hermit= Odin, Tyr, Iðunn, Sága
10 the Wheel of Fortune= Gefion, Njord, Hoenir, Sága
11 Justice= Forseti, Tyr, Skadi, Váli, Vár
12 the Hanged Man= Odin
13 Death= Hel, Elli, Ull
14 Temperance= Sigyn, Hermod, Hlín, Hœnir, Snotra, Vidar, Vör
15 the Devil= Loki, Honir, Váli
16 the Tower= Heimdall, Njord, Váli
17 the Star= Sigyn, Hel, Frigg, Freja, Iðunn, Elli, Sif, Vár
18 the Moon= Hel, Sigyn, Mani, Nott
19 the Sun= Freyr, Njord, Sol, Dellingr, Dagr, Sif
20 Judgement= Tyr, Thor, Váli, Vár
21 the World= Jörð

out of curiosity wouldn't Freja fit best via Chariot cus see she had a chariot pulled by her two cats given to her by thor, also rules over death and linked to war and is often pictured with her helmet sword chariot two cats and her necklace
