At the moment I'm very interested in finding my Patron God, but I have conflicted feelings about whats going on.
So since I was a child, I have loved ancient Greece and the Gods, so that leads me to believe I'd probably be following a Hellenistic Wiccan path, as that is what calls to me the strongest right now.
But I don't seem to be feeling any kind of call or am drawn to any Goddess at all, from any religion.
On the other hand, I feel a very strong incline towards Ares, the Greek God of War.
I have always felt a strong liking for him and have been drawn to him, but I am not a violent or angry person which leads me to be confused about this.
Could he be my Patron God even though I am not violent? I am quite an emotionally strong person so perhaps that is the reason?
Some other things that lead me to think that he could be is that my favourite colour is red, which is Ares' colour, and yesterday I got completely lost and ended up driving around a suburb I've never been in before, and all the road names were to do with Ancient Greece; places, column names, ect. It actually got to the point of seeing these literal signs and saying 'Ok enough! I get it!' at which point I seemed to immediately leave this suburb as I saw no more signs.
I haven't seen many Wiccans who have Ares as a Patron, as he kind of goes against what many Wiccans believe, like no harming others and stuff like that. But I am so strongly drawn to him that I can't help but think that.
What is your opinion on this? And how can I honour him properly as its very hard to find information online for him.
Blessed be :)
