Do you feel drawn to any particular pantheon of deities, is there a particular reason?

Yes and no. The classical pantheon I know the most about is the Grecian/Roman. This knowledge comes from WAY too many years spent studying Latin in high school and college. I never felt particularly drawn to call on these deities in ritual, although I have done so quite a bit.

Many years ago two covenmates and I developed deity archetypes which I find are much more personal to me. The more closely we worked with these archetypes, the more powerful and meaningful they became for me. The archetypes we settled on are found in many cultures- the fertility/mother goddess, the sun god, the genderless creation deity, the harvest/sacrificial goddess, the underworld god, etc. As a monotheistic pantheist I find it strengthens my faith to work with deities that I feel represent traits of all gods and goddesses.

I am not to sure as of yet what exactly I want to work with. Sandy J was talking about the ones found in many cultures, I know I want to work with, the fertility/mother, harvest/sacraficial, etc. but I'm not sure who exactly.

Ask me about dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils!

I seem to be more drawn to the Celtic goddesses in my goddess oracle deck. I'm also interested in the priestesses and other famous figures of Avalon. But I am also drawn, and have always been drawn, to the Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.

I do not use pantheons religiously, but I love mythology and learning about them.
