AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
Hello, I've been an eclectic Pagan for a while, but over the past year or so, I've kind of wanted to have more of a diverse path, then just a straight forward one if that makes sense. The topic of Patron Gods & Goddesses, really intrigue me. So I was wondering if anyone could give me a brief introduction to them? Thanks!
I apologize if you know this stuff already. I'll try to be as introductory as possible :)
A Patron God or Goddess usually comes to you or you stumble across and are drawn towards. The God is usually seen as some form of Green God, or nature God, who is in tune with the seasons, harvesting and animal and plant life. He's tied to the masculin aspects of the male. He's also more prone to be a warrior, though this depends on the culture. There's no mistaking the Morrigan as a war Goddess :)
A Patron Goddess is usually tied to childbirth, motherhood and the cycles of life. She's tied to beauty and creativity, activities in the home and the female aspect of sexuality though again, this depends on the pantheon you're interested in.
Some of the more popular patron Gods/Goddesses come from the Greek, Roman and Egyptian Pantheons, while others come from the Celts. Others are drawn towards the Norse Pantheon. With anything, research is the key - I was drawn to Anubis (Egyptian) at first and with time drifted over to the rest of the Egyptian Gods.

not to contradict you ConureHerder, but a Patron God or Matron Goddess isn't tied to nature and childbirth. [also The Morrigan is a 'darker' Goddess, it doesn't mean she's a patron God, if you work with The Morrigan she is your Patron Goddess] your Patron/Matron [patron=masculine, matron=feminine, though i don't think it matters much if you call one your Matron God and your Patron Goddess] is the deity you personally connect with, work with personally, and have a bond/connection with. you don't need one, but one might come to you one day.
you can look for one [i did] or you could wait for one to come to you when the times right, either way, just be open. should you seek out a patron deity, try doing some reflection, perhaps research deities associated with things you like, your family genealogy [say your family is from Greece, look into Greek mythology] or cultures you're interested in.
