Nyx, Godess of the Night
By: / Beginner
Post # 1
Can anybody shed some light on her? (Metaphorically speaking ofcourse XD)
I've found a lot of information of her, but there's a lot of references to some vampire series which is not what I am looking for. The more I dig, the more fiction material I come across. This has been tiresome but I will continue to persevere. In the mean time, any info on her would be welcomed and appreciated. I am considering taking her up as my patron, but I require more information before I commit.

well Nyx was one of the 1st of the gods to be created. She was considered one of the most powerful godesses in greek mythology. Even Zeus didnt want to upset the Godess of Night.In ancient art Nyx was portrayed as a either a winged goddess or charioteer, sometimes crowned with an aureole of dark mist. Nyx is a good Goddess to call forth when you need to reclaim your awareness of your original essential nature. Hope some of this helps. Its just some basics.. You can also learn more about her through her children as well. :D

Thank you.^^
from what I've. Gathered so far, it seems like she gets a bad Rep from a western point of view. She has been described as beautiful, quite loving, deadly if provoked, creative, and as you said, unimaginable powerful from what Ive gleemed. Would you say that is accurate?

well in ways she is both rathfull and nice. like you said when she is provoked you see her bad side, sadly this was offten. she was not a popular goddess and from what i read she seemed to take this as a grudge. but yes there are places where she is nice and loving.. here is a web page that will give you quotes from poems and old writings even things like Homers, Iliad and much more.. it is a good read! run through the whole page.. most of the good stuff is at the bottom half.

Arabella,
I am very new to the concept of deities. This question may come off as naive ( which on this subject I feel that I am) but is there some sort of ritual to possibly contact her. Speak with her perhaps? A prayer or something of the sort?

Many people meditate on their diety. One of the most common , one might say powerful, ways some communicate with their patron is through evokation. I hope I'm not getting invokation and evokation mixed up as trying to forcing a being to materialize, invokation if my memory serves, isn't likely to end well when dealing with such a powerful being while evokation or evoking is calling the spirit, entity, diety, etc...into your body and mind to form a sort of unification. This is supposed to be very inspiring, enlightening, etc... I don't know much about it in the end but simple evoking one might say is often done in spells when you verbally ask the aid of a diety or being as your asking for their wisdom and knowledge, not to mention power, to help your spell succeed though not everyone evokes a diety while performing a spell. I'm delving into a area I'm not "well" informed upon but maybe some of this will make sense and you can look it up.
