And that's only the ones that start with "C"... there must be a LOT.

Yes. Yes there are.

On another note, dear lord the threads here get derailed so easily. *derails further*

I have always been drawn to the Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, Bast (Bastet) has drawn me to her above all others. The Feline goddess of Ancient Egypt , she was docile and aggressive all in one little body.

The Lord and Lady of course but I guess if I have to choose...:P

Athena, I have always had a special attraction to her, and I just happen to be named after her famous high priestess during the Trojan War

Bes, god of music, der. I am a musician so of course I love the guy.

Arianrhod and Mabon

Arianrhod picked me. For quite awhile I didn't know it was her. I was looking everywhere other then in the direction I needed to be looking. Her name kept confidently yet quietly coming up in my mind for years. I honor her natural rythems and she has been there for me everytime I had asked for her help. It didn't matter if it was for animals, family or myself. My creativity and wisdom has been coming out to play now. I feel strong confident loving energy from her. Her energy says " I am here. I always will. I love you. I always will." Mabon, well his energy is like the perfect dad for me. Calm, strong, divine but makes me feel just as divine when I am working with him even though I am farrrr from it.  :-pI feel like he supports the gearhead in me as a female. He is like the father that gives all his harvest of love no matter how much his child screws up. He will sacrifice himself just to see you succeed. No matter where your path leads you, he will always be a beaming proud papa because your you.I could go on and on about the both of them. Thanks for reading this far. :)

Carmenta. Goddess of childbirth and protector of women and children. I have always had a strong connection with her and represents the things I stand for. Plus, I think any of us who have had children can appreciate her presence and those thinking of having children could draw on her power during this difficult time :)

Anubis-When I first learned of Anubis when I was little, I instantly felt a special attraction to him, a connection I can't quite explain. But, has always been there.

Bast-I connect to Bast through my love of cats, and also feel a special connection to her.

Well, my conception of God hasn't directly been inspired by reading books on Mythology. I've been inspired by my soul's experiences that come up to breathe when I am focused. These experiences show me a very clear picture. It's an image of a young, blue girl with flowing blue hair that twists and extends infinitely. She is very playful and bursting with love and energy. She wants to love everything and everyone. She's very intimate and intense, but also extremely independent. She is tresss, the eternal life force. She is comprised of two very general 'sub-goddesses': the virgin and the whore. The virgin is focused, pure, and incorruptible. The whore loves all and is always full of desire and chaos. Together they create a balanced force. I am the virgin-whore paradox; I don't see a strict division between what is me, and her.
