You weren't exactly incorrect.  New Agers like to take ancient concepts and bastardize them for self actualization and growth.  Not a bad thing, but the original mythic basis sometimes gets lost. I'm not a Reconstructionist but still I cringe at some of this stuff.

Yep, I absolutely agree; it's sad that so much of that goes on, that some native cultures now don't want to share... it saddens me, but I guess I can't really blame them.

In more recent eras it became simply a matter of doing in all other potential candidates, "with extreme prejudice" as the saying goes, which essentially means that the strongest, most determined and most ruthless (or perhaps just the sneakiest) contender wins. Belonging to the right family (and the right religion) helped, of course.

Brilliantly said; in reference to the quote above, I couldn't help thinking how much this sounds like the last half century of US politics.   ??? :( ::) ;)

And I can say that I wouldn't want the job either, for all the reasons listed above, and one more... mainly because I'd suck at it. :-p

It means they have sovereignty over a geographic area. Brigantia would be an example.  Often the sovereign goddess would have to symbolically mate with a king for his title to be official.  Think Arthur and Morgaine in their tryst at Beltane, if you've read The Mists of Avalon, though the sovereign goddess could literally be the land in some cases, and the king had to "marry" the land.  Sometimes this was done through bloodshed. Interesting stuff

LOL!  I stand wonderfully corrected!  Thanks Ashe :D

Hmmm... I'm not sure... might be a good question for Ashe, or EB... my own thought is that maybe a deity of sovereignty may be one that supports you own sovereignty....

Well I was a little bit right... here's an article that makes it a bit clearer:

Ok I am trying to understand what it means when a god or goddess is a god/goddess of sovereignty this may be a silly question but I tend to overthink things sometimes and I fear I may be doing it this time. Now here is what I have narrowed it down to that it means that either nothing happens without them controlling it and having say over everything or that they just answer to no one and control everything pertaining unto them. For example The Morrigan is a Goddess of Sovereignty as one of her aspects would that mean that she is in control of everything or that she is in control of everything pertaining to her? thank you for your help in advance and Blessed Be!!!

Og gave sound, classic info on circumscribing a circle.  Is this what you want or are you asking how to cast circle?
