i don't tend to say who my patron deities are, i find it personal. though i do follow many Egyptian deities, along with the Horned God and Triple Goddess. as for the why, i feel a connection with them really. with the Egyptian deities, i've always been interested in Egyptology, so i incorporated them into my path when i started. my patron God and Goddess, i feel a strong connection with, i've always been interested in their mythology, their behavior, and their animal forms are of creatures i've always been interested in. the Horned God and Triple Goddess, again, i feel a connection with them. i didn't choose my god and goddess because they were cool or something, i meditated on each one, and i felt it was the right ones for me.
why do you want to know who and why people follow particular deities, or who their 'top God or/and Goddess' is like it's a reality show or something?
I don't think Cherry wants it to be like a reality show. What she does need to know though, is that she can choose any God or Goddess she feels comfortable with. I think she just wants to know about the various Gods/Goddesses people have chosen. A wise idea is that when more people do answer, is to research these Gods/Goddesses and learn more about them. There are many Gods/Goddesses from various mythologies like Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, etc. I for one love the mythology of the Native Americans.
Cherry, my advice to you is to research these mythologies. If you know some Gods or Goddesses already then research them. You have to find the God or Goddess that you feel connected to the most or who you like and respect.
As for the main question, I do not wish to say in the public forums who exactly my Goddess is (I have only chosen a Goddess), and I'm sorry about that. My path is mainly private and I don't really say what is in my path.
