Originally posted by me in summer 2010. Some info on sun deities from a variety of traditions...have you ever worked with any of them? Would you like to? Do any of these interest you enough to find out more? Do you have any info to add or any extra sun deities to add?
IS it sunny right now where you are? How's your weather? What do you do to make the most of sunny weather?
As most of us are having beautiful weather at the moment, it's a great time of year to work with sun deities to harness their particular energies - whether you believe that the deities are akin to ascended masters or whether you believe they are more of an archetype.
There was some info in one of my spiritual magazines this month so I thought I'd do a quick reference thing for you guys in case you wanted to try working with a sun deity at this most potent time of year.
Amaterasu is a Japanese sun goddess who radiates warmth and hope and can be called upon when you have a problem or dilemma to help you reach a solution.
Sekhmet is an Egyptian sun goddess with the head of a lion and can be called upon when you need courage, confidence or to be assertive.
Apollo is a Greek sun god often pictured with a bow and arrow. You can call on Apollo for help towards a specific goal or target. You can use the bow and arrow as a visualisation, seeing the arrow hit a picture of your goal.
Sol is a Norse sun goddess who rides in a solar chariot. She can be called upon for good fortune, which is even more potent if you do so in a bath infused with lemon or lemongrass essential oil on a Sunday.
Ra (or Re) is an Egyptian sun god who travels across the sky on a boat. You can call on Ra for strength and resilience.
Tonatiuh is an Aztec sun god pictured with a crown of eagle feathers. According to legend he gave power to warriors and can be called upon for the strength to overcome obstacles.
