If you think a deity is calling you, ask why. What is he or she calling you for? There is an idea floating around that every Pagan should have his or her own patron deity. This is a nice thought, but it doesn’t align with what our ancient ancestors believed nor with the experience of many contemporary polytheists. The gods have their own areas of interest and responsibility – being your guardian and guide may not be at the top of their priority lists.
Don’t assume that any contact is an offer to be your patron, or even that you should have a patron. People and gods are all unique – no two relationships are identical.
If a goddess or god is calling you, odds are good she or he wants you to do something: make an offering, tell a story, do something to help his or her work, or do something to make yourself ready to do something bigger at some point in the future. Be prepared to respond with action.
That something may or may not include priestly work. Priesthood is a special calling and is not to be taken lightly. Priests and priestesses are people who have taken special obligations to perform special services for an extended period of time. For all I have done for and with Morrigan, she has not called me to be her priest. But that hasn’t stopped her from asking me to do things for her. As with the question of patronage, don’t assume you should be a priest or priestess.
Just to be clear: modern Paganism generally takes a very Protestant approach to priesthood. All Pagans are priests in that you don’t need a specialist or other intermediary to approach the gods. Those who are called to priesthood – those who I would call priest or priestess – are servants of a particular deity or deities with an obligation to do their work in this world. Or they are servants and leaders of a particular group – they are clergy.
Ask yourself if what you’re hearing is challenging you to do something different – to change the way you worship, the way you live, the way you think, the way you relate to the rest of the Universe. The gods are busy and they don’t need idle followers. They need people who will be their hands in this world.
Finally, ask yourself if you’re ready to hear the call of the gods. While you can and should retain your sovereignty even when dealing with the gods, what is heard cannot be unheard and what is promised cannot be undone.
That’ll be the reason why this blog is so rarely updated these days. I do apologise. A lot of my spiritual happenings are ones that I don’t often feel the need to blog about. Despite my liking for social media and the way it can be used to connect people and do good (and bad, true), I’m a very private person. My spirituality is not something I announce to the world very often.
After suffering a major bout of depression these past few weeks, I feel a little more stable, and after casting runes yesterday, I feel slightly more on track and on target. I’m working my way towards getting back in touch with the deities I regretfully blocked off as I tried to sort my life out. (Long story, won’t go into it.)
Loki is here; I will admit it surprised me how willing he was to stick around when I was in a spiritual block, and he wants me to start using runes more regularly, which I will do. As well as get up, brush the dust off me and get back in the saddle.
It’s been two years this month since he came into my life. I’m coming to the end of adolescence, and even though at times I might have ignored him and hesitated, denied and became lost, I’m glad he never left. I hope our bond - whatever you want to call it - strengthens. And I hope my skills develop and grow.
Because of this ask, I think it might be a good idea to create a list of identifying signs that people can refer to.
This would likely have to be a community effort, with everyone reblogging and adding their deity and identifying signs to the list.
For those without any attachments/contracts/internships with deities, please do reblog to pass it on as well.
For those with unnamed/anonymous/keeping up the mystery appeal deities… try putting it as (username)’s God/Goddess.
- Find your deity if they’re already on the list. If not on list, add them in alphabetical order for reference.
- Add in the signs that you use to identify your deities, then sign with your username in square brackets . Link your username, if you like.
- Pass it on! XD Please keep the pagan tag in, though, so we can really build up a database.

bright gold like sunlight; dark curly hair; very dramatic entrances; associated with the Sun in the tarot. [bouquetsofperfumedstars] [does not work closely with deity]

Silver and gold together. Mathematics, particularly geometry. Music and math together. Pure light, like shafts of sunlight. Sense of being observed and notated, but not gazed at directly; His sight, to me, always seems distant and far-reaching, while things immediately surrounding the present are seen as though from His peripheral vision. [Eupheme]
Feelings of heat (not warmth, heat). Sudden heartfelt feelings of summer even in the winter. Inspiration, urge to create, idea generation. Feelings of internal, spiritual healing. Hunger— breaking of fasts. [StSathyre]
Feels like the tingle up the spine that is caused by hearing or reading something important or emotionally affecting - often music or something art/study-related - along with heat (internal when inspired, external with divination). Curly hair, sense of being everywhere and nowhere (feels… “big”), somewhat blunt/straight to the point but occasionally teasing, and very goal focused/dedicated while still stopping to “smell the roses.” [BetrayingReality]

Lots of energy, often with a sort of frantic taste to it. Wholehearted glee in doing whatever you want. Absolute freedom/disregard for authority (except hers). Very demanding.

[Boneshaker]
(As if this wasn’t obvious) Is drawn to anything involving cats or cat symbolism. Person will usually have a strong connection to cats and be able to befriend cats easily. May sometimes act like a cat. May also feel as if cats are constantly around you/watching over you/etc - even if you can’t see them. Colours are most typically black, can also be colours seen in cat furs. Sunshine patches. Tarot Card would be The Sun.
I haven’t attempted it yet, but I have a feeling that my Tarot of the Cat People or my boyfriend’s Tarot of the Pagan Cats (or any other cat-centered Tarot deck) would be good for communication with her. If you feel drawn to any of these decks, it may be her calling you. [Nova’s Grimoire] [does not work closely with this deity]
A deep, yellowish green, a bit of gold, the sense of a warm fire built in a safe, dry cave. A feeling like someone placing a coat around your shoulders.

When asked for something, has a tendency to give vague wait-and-see responses (“I’ll see what I can do” or variant). [Boneshaker]
interesting. Long dark tangled hair and a sort of artfully unkempt look/feel. He doesn’t seem to really be in the present. Mellow and pleasant but a little bit of a ticking time bomb. Kind of waiting for him to kill someone… [TheWalker][doesn’t work closely with deity]
Intense stares, calculating and quiet, greys and blacks, thick fur, scent of the forest, feral and untameable at his worst, loyal and affectionate at his best, shoulder nuzzling, wolves (obviously), amber/gold eyes. [darylina-dixon]
The person might notice that they’ve been having a LOT of good luck, especially luck that is undeserved. You may notice you are great with divinations, or perhaps are clairvoyant to a degree. Telling the future just comes naturally to you. Midsummer is one of your favorite holidays, and you seem to understand that the world isn’t fair. You might feel a strange and soft presence at times, but it is constant and comforting. Is the Wheel of Fortune your favorite Tarot card? Do you really like orange or green? If luck seems to always be on your side, then Fortuna might be the one [faerylizzy][If anyone else is working with/drawn to this deity, please contact her]

I see radiant black hair that has golden stars shining within. Never as a ‘crone’ but more motherly, or a stern but loving aunt. And hounds…don’t forget the hounds. Torch-bearer. And yes, the beat that I hear when she is around makes you want to belly-dance. [BellonaNJ73]

Deep shadows in corner of eye, never appears directly ahead, always just out of eye shot. Feelings of weightlessness, stomach butterflies, mild (fight or flight) anxiety. Generally appears when one ignores the messages of ancestors, is dealing with death, or is having a hard time with feelings of guilt in mourning. [StSathyre]
Sense of breeze, like something moving past at high velocity. Kerykeion/Caduceus imagery. Wings. Laughter heard from a distance. Blue eyes. Dark curly hair. Impeccable comic timing. On occasion, pinstripe business suits, wire-rimmed glasses, and a gold pocket-watch chain. [Eupheme]
Dark curly hair, dark eyes, warm smile. Lean and tall, definitely has a runner’s build. He kinda looks like he’s in his late teens-really early twenties. Surprising sweet and charming though I’m pretty sure most of our conversations are him taunting me and me sort of throwing “your face is”s at him. Teasing and fun. Kinda makes me want to actually work out and feel a need to get places quicker. Generally wears casual clothes like shorts and tank tops. Every time I make a deal with him I am like SHIT this is going to fuck me over later and then he LAUGHS. [TheWalker]
Revealed presence through snakes approaching me every day until he was recognized and asked to stop, also in flying things (during a military aerobatics demonstration, in my case), electronic media and communication (the Internet in particular). Dramatic increase in number and force of signs until officially recognized and asked to stop. Sense of urgency, hurry, and impatience. Very intense. Metallic colors, urban imagery, seems to appreciate anything high velocity, especially anything exceptionally faster than the rest of its ilk (a fast bird, a race, a jet aircraft, or even a high speed Internet connection, etc.).

Misted-over/milky eyes with no iris or pupil, though sometimes She appears with eyes with an iris the color of the Nile. Long dark hair with a flow that reminds one of water, but seems to glow or is backlit by the light of the moon.
Ankhs, scarabs, but only when She is in a particularly motherly mood. Which is a lot of the time. Very attached to the sea and the moon and celebrates every full moon. Likes really sweet fruit tea, or tea with lots of sugar. Tends to appear connected to everything, very reminiscent of an Earth Mother or Gaia deity. Makes very personal connections with followers and always looks at the bigger picture. Tends to treat everyone like a child and She is the mother who knows best. However, She offers nothing for free; if it seems like She is, there is most likely something She will be able to cash in on later. Holds promises high and you will probably feel Her wrath if you break one. Otherwise, a very laid-back and easy-to-please patron, very welcoming to anyone and believes there is always something you can offer. [KingofWands]Juno:Motherly warmth, yet very regal. Warm medium brown hair against the royal purple. Very caring but you get on her bad side, and you understand the meaning behind the phrase ‘the most dangerous creature to encounter is a mother protecting her young’. [BellonaNJ73]
Khnum:A whimsical and joyful presence. May sometimes cause a jolt and then quick soothing. Sudden warmth, that starts from the belly and quickly moves up. A need to get up and do something. Might stir up longing. He may permit you to call him Raum. [aletheiathecryptic/mnemosyne666]A gentle, calm presence who smells like rain. Causes an attraction to pottery, as well as rams and animals with spiral horns. Inspires you to create things, such as paintings and sculptures. [arcturus0]

[Dusken]judges me when I am lazy in my tea making. Like I can FEEL the disapproval radiating from him. Wakes Tara up in wolf form. When he’s being difficult he’ll only respond to questions if I phrase them in the most self-deprecating way. Slightly sad but tries not to go there. Wears WAISTCOATS (very particular about that) when I see him. Sophisticated and kinda dickish. [TheWalker]
Emerald green eyes, wicked grins (sometimes) or a smug/pleased but will NOT explain why smile, very RED/red-orange hair (sometimes). Very attractive; sense/appearance of fey-ness or feral energy. Definitely would not be confused with being human. The Emperor in my Thoth deck; has been indicated by the King of Swords in my Wizards Tarot. Joy of experiencing life.

When he shows up there’s a feel that he just ran here and stumbled in like “okay what’d I miss?”. He’s fun but a little dangerous. Morbidly enraptured by Chelsea Handler’s bit on redheads. Amused when I complain about how cold I am. Rambunctious and fun. I get the feeling he is like stupidly in love with Sigyn, like suddenly a nerdy tween in love with the CUTEST GIRL IN SCHOOL. He manages to be cooler with all the other ladies. Way cooler. [TheWalker]
Tall and pale. He goes past albino in that he is literally white, both his skin and hair are pure white. Long, agile fingers. Stag imagery, especially white ones. Both elegant and rustic.

Huge black wings at appear occasionally. Wears black shoes, black pants, and a black turtleneck. Quiet, thoughful and a little introverted. Doesn’t like Loki because he ruins his cool composed exterior. Pretty sure he’s not as aloof as he tries to act. Reminds me of a soft grunge blog. [TheWalker][doesn’t work closely with deity]

The hermit tarot card seems to call to you. And for some strange reason you always know the way. When you are lost at times you might see a dim lantern light, or a guiding hand ready to help you along. A warm and calming presence that is as comforting and pleasant as the sun. A spark of fire resides within you. In your dreams, signs of mountain lions, roman temples, or endless fields of sunflowers might be seen. Colors of red, orange, yellow, and purple seem to be to your liking. Sometimes, when you are lonely, you might feel a warm embrace around you trying to comfort. [faerylizzy] [If anyone is working with/drawn to this deity, please contact her]
she looks like milla jonovich if Milla Jonovich dressed like it was the 50s/60s and had no eyes. Her eyes are completely white, they don’t look clouded so much as cut out. Like her face was paper.

Unusually active temper. Urge to “get even.” Cold, emotionless drive for vengeance and justice. Balance. Hatred for undue reward. Disgust for unwarranted pride and an urge to bring those people down to size. A sense of infallibility. Maybe a feeling a heaviness, weighing you down—like a physical embodiment of power or duty.

Edited my URL :)
I try not to make posts about myself, because I’m not the point of this blog, but I thought I should add something on to the “why don’t people like Lokeans?” post from yesterday.
Lokeans often feel bad if they match “particular stereotypes”, either because of non-Lokean mockery and bullying or because they begin to feel like, by visibly matching stereotypes, they’re somehow shameful and letting other Lokeans down and encouraging the assholish behavior from the non-Lokeans.
I am a bundle of Lokean stereotypes. Trans, pansexual, geeky, kinky, gothy, into fandom and gaming. I cosplay. I have both participated in and run LARP games and tabletop RPGs. I still enjoy watching anime and I ran a gaming club, an anime club, and an SCA group back when I was in college. I enjoy mystical occulty woo stuff. I have set numerous things on fire and/or blown them up because that’s par for the course when you’re taking classes in particular branches of Physics. I struggle with several mental illnesses, the effects of which aren’t always obvious when I communicate via text but become far more obvious if someone meets me face-to-face. Some of it manifests as social anxiety, and so I can have a difficult time talking to people. I write fanfiction. I’ve read Thorki and Frostiron fic. I’ve got a Joker figure and a Batman figure on my altar. I listen to a variety of music, but that variety does include Goth, Industrial, and EBM.
Don’t worry about the stereotypes. You’ll be fine.
Kenaz turns up.
I think it’s time to get back into spirituality, and specifically back in touch with Loki. Exams are almost done, and I have a long summer ahead of me. Time to get in touch with the gods, and with nature.
I feel like it’s going to a great summer.
Here’s to greatness. And whatever lies in store.
