This is a great question! I really do think there's a difference between wanting and attraction. I think this difference is actually happening to me at the moment.
When I was younger, I had an infatuation with the Greek pantheon. I had learned a lot of the mythology because I believe we were learning about ancient Greece in school, and I went above and beyond in my learning because I liked it. When I first found Wicca, I tried to incorporate the Greek pantheon into my practice... However, I never felt a real connection.
Eventually I fell out of practicing Wicca because of complication in my life...
Now that I'm back, I actually disassociated with any pantheon. I didn't want to declare a pantheon and "devote" to any Gods/Goddess without a connection, like the first time. So I research, but don't attach myself to any pantheon because I like it or want it. Recently, I've come across the Hindu pantheon, and this feeling I'm getting is different than want. It's feels like a drawing in... I'm not even entirely sure yet, so I'm going to do more research and meditate on this. But, I know the feeling is different than my liking to the Greek Gods/Goddess before.
I hope that helped! Really, I know when your pantheon (or other path!) to the
God and Goddess comes around, you'll know it.
Blessed Be xx
