A Beginner's Guide to Working with Deities


So, you want to talk to the gods! From one eclectic witch to another, I’ve collected some suggestions on finding a deity, or as I call them, godform, that is a good fit for you. This general strategy has worked exceedingly well for me and my posse, and I hope it works well for you too.


1. Narrow in on your goals

When looking for a deity to work with, it's good to know what you want out of the relationship. If your pressing desire is to find true love, then a love godform like Aphrodite or Eros might be your match. If you’re focused on bringing in the dough, you might want to look into Jupiter or Freya. Get specific about your goal because that will help with the next step. You might also want to make a list of secondary magicks you might want to do, because godforms often come with a variety of skills. And once you’ve created a relationship with a godform, you can continue that relationship after the initial need is met through other work as well.


Example:

Primary goal Increase the income bracket of my overall client base

Secondary areas of interest General Abundance, Shamanism, Shadow Work


2. Look to your Ancestry
