Wiccan Deities

Wicca is a religion of nature and most deities are associated with an aspect of nature or a quality in the spiritual realm. Throughout a person’s ritual practice, often a single Goddess or God will begin to stand out or feel familiar, but it is common to work with various deities according to the purpose of the ritual and the traits associated with each deity. Take your time to research various pantheons and see which ones call to you over time as your patron deity.

If you don’t feel a connection with any particular deity, you can simply connect with any aspects of nature or the Universe that speak to you, such as the Elements.
