Everything You Need to Know to Start Connecting with the God and Goddess
Who are the Goddess and the God, and where did they come from? Why do they have different names in different Wiccan traditions, and how do you begin to work with them in your personal practice? Magical Deities, by best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain, answers these questions and more.
Going beyond the brief introduction to the God and Goddess found in many beginner guides to Wicca, Lisa covers the origins of the Wiccan deities as well as the difference between traditional duotheism and more eclectic polytheistic practices, both of which are found in some forms of modern Wicca. You’ll also find advice for forging your own spiritual connection with the divine masculine and feminine, introductions to 16 ancient deities considered to be “aspects” of the God and Goddess within Wiccan practices, and more:
The history of the Wiccan Goddess and God and their evolution through various traditions
An introduction to the Triple Goddess and her 3 aspects: Maiden, Mother and Crone
Introductions to the Sun God, the Horned God, the Green Man, and the Holly and Oak Kings
How to represent the God and Goddess on the Wiccan altar
The mythology, cosmology, and magical practices of the ancient cultures that gave rise to Wicca
The most popular deities of the Egyptian, Roman, Greek, and Celtic pantheons
Advice for choosing deities to work with, and magical goals and methods specific to each one
Tables of correspondence with suggested representations, offerings, and magical domains for each deity covered in the guide
The more you know about the gods and goddesses you seek to work with, the deeper your connection with them will become. As you further your journey into the realm of Wicca, Magical Deities will be a trusted travel guide!
