A favourite God.

Choosing a favorite God is hard for me. Because I'm eclectic I haven't chosen a specific God to work with. I suspect if I spoke with a psychologist he or she would link my lack of faith in a male figure to my non-existent father. He left when I was little and I never had a strong male role model. I've never trusted men in my life other than my husband.

I'm drawn to the Green Man. I'm interested in Ra, and I'm interested in all Gaelic gods. But none have really spoken to me as the "one" for me. So when I want to bring the masculine energy into my work, I fall back on my husbands wording - Father Sky. Its good enough for me. Or I simply say the Lord and Lady.

The Green Man
So why the Green Man? Well, for one, he's green a leafy! As a healer I'm drawn to the color green. It speaks to me. I simply love it. What better deity to represent the male figure? He's the fertile God of Spring growth.

The Sun King: Ra

Because I'm drawn to Egyptian culture and its Pantheon Ra has always had a special place in my heart. He is the sun king. With his ride across the sky he brings light. At sunrise he is known as Khepera, at noon Ra (or Re), and at sunset he is Tem or Temu.

Gaelic Gods: Cernunnos

He is the Horned God. He's another male fertility God. He's the god of the hunt. (Are we seeing a pattern here?) He's connected to the stag and snake. He's just one more strong male figure. I haven't done a lot of research on him, and I've never used him in my magical works. Perhaps he's someone I should bring into my life. Maybe, one day I will.


  1. I hate my father, which is one of the reasons why I had never had a male deity for the longest time. The Earth was male and female, Goddess and God, for me. It wasn't until 3-4 years that I've accepted Father Sun as my male deity. But I still see the Earth as a Hermaphrodite. :-) Blessings! ~)O(~

  2. lol. Definitely a hermaphrodite. I don't think I'll ever really be as close to a male deity as I am with Goddess. There's just too much damage from the male role models in my life. But I can try. I really don't think its right to ignore him, but I end up doing it anyway.
