i've always been very private about naming my deities online. originally i read how it was believed if someone learned who your dieties were they could gain some power over you. today i just do so simply because it's personal and i don't want to tell everyone [but if you pm me and happen to work with the same deity as me, i'm fine chatting, my matron is very obscure so i know the struggle of finding information on her]
i've jumped around for many years, i never felt that connected with the Wiccan Goddess [the Wiccan God however i always felt a bond] so in the beginning because i always loved Egyptian mythology i tried working with various Egyptian Goddesses [with varying degrees of success] i didn't actually find my matron until late last year. i wanted to form a close connection and all the previous Goddesses didn't click with me, so i did a bunch of research trying to figure out how to find and connect with your matron. one day i googled 'deities associated with [insert animal] ' and she was the first that came up. before i even clicked on the link i got this feeling [hard to describe, it felt like bumping into an old friend i guess] i wanted to make sure it wasn't me just agreeing with the first thing i saw, so i looked at the other deities, and googled a few others, but i kept circling back. about 3 days later i felt her presence, and that night i had a dream about her, so i've been working with her from that day on.
it's been a real experience since there's very little written about her [most people just link her to a similar goddess in another mythology] so it's been a lot of trial and error.
