Pagan Kids













There are many female deities associated with paganism in general, and Wicca/Witchcraft in particular. A few of them are listed below in detail, and there is a quick reference list; but they are by no means complete.


They are a blend from different cultures, so bare that in mind when working with them, as it would be discourteous to call on different gods and/or goddesses from different traditions. (ie. you wouldn't call on a Celtic goddess like Brigid, with an Egyptian God like Osiris) to lend their energies to you in a spell).


There are HEAPS more I have yet to add, when I find the time, I will!
