Gods

 

 

Below are a collection of God figures used in some pagan traditions.  A few of them are listed below, but it by no means a complete list. 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!
