The Patrons and Matrons
By:
Post # 1
In this forum I would like to share my main deities and would like to hear all of yours! :)
My matron goddess is Diana. She is a triple-goddess, and is the goddess of the Hunt, the moon, chastity, and much more. She is called the Queen of the witches and is, in my opinion, ranked right beside Hecate in the magickal world.
My patron God is Herne the Hunter. He is Lord of the forests, the sun, animals, and much more. He is the consort of the Goddess and together they are the embodiment of all life and nature.

Diana/Artemis has nothing to do with witchcraft. Hekate took care of that. My matron is Aphrodite. My Patron is Zeus.

I should have stated the Hekate thing is a major opinion.

Just as a minor linguistic correction here...

The Deities we work with, both male and female are our "Patrons". A " Patron " is " One that supports, protects, or champions someone or something ." This is a gender-neutral term and applies equally to male and female.

A " Matron " on the other hand, is by definition: "

1. A married woman or a widow, especially a mother of dignity, mature age, and established social position.

2. A woman who acts as a supervisor or monitor in a public institution, such as a school, hospital, or prison. I think you'll agree that this definition does not fit the relationship we have with a Goddess.

The fact is that the term "Matron" in reference to one's relationship with a Goddess came out of the feminist movement and has become commonly, but incorrectly, used by many.

That being said, I work with Sekhmet, Anpu, Tejuti, and Menthu.

I've wanted a Patroness from the first moment I discovered alternative religions, but it's like I've only ever really gotten thwapped by macho manly masculine divinities and maybe shapeshifting androgynes.

It feels like it's been ages since I tried looking for my patron gods, but it hasn't even been a year yet! Aset was the first goddess who showed up to me during meditation, so I worked with her the most. Cernunnos came later on to be my patron god, and through him, I've had Him and Aset with me throughout my whole journey. I've devoted myself to other gods as well, so I get myself working a lot to organizing prayers and hymns of praise when I can.

I have never really gave the Goddess or the God a name, I just call them that.
