Hello. Just a short Question: Why is Rhea worshipped as a Mother Goddess in the aspects of Gardenian Wicca? Well,I know Her role in Greek Mythology,but why Her,specifically? What about other Goddesses like Athena? And why not any others Goddess from the 12 Titans?

Why do you believe that Rhea has anything to do with Gardnerian Wicca? I believe I have told you before that the names of the Deities in Gardnerian Wicca are never revealed to those who are not initiated.
uh, no she's not. i'm not saying no Wiccan anywhere doesn't worship Rhea, just that Gardner never said 'we worship Rhea'. [then again, i'm not BTW, but every book i've read on Wicca and all my interactions with the Goddess i've never come across the name Rhea]
The Goddess is the Goddess, and the God is the God. you can argue they're based off other deities, or perhaps all deities are branches of them, but The Triple Goddess and Rhea are two different beings. it doesn't mean you can't worship both, or incorporate Rhea into your Wiccan path, but regarding BTW and the original Gardenian path, no, it's The Triple Goddess and The Horned God and no-one else.
