Everything You Need to Know to Start Connecting with the God and Goddess

Who are the Goddess and the God, and where did they come from? Why do they have different names in different Wiccan traditions, and how do you begin to work with them in your personal practice? Magical Deities, by best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain, answers these questions and more.

Going beyond the brief introduction to the God and Goddess found in many beginner guides to Wicca, Lisa covers the origins of the Wiccan deities as well as the difference between traditional duotheism and more eclectic polytheistic practices, both of which are found in some forms of modern Wicca. You’ll also find advice for forging your own spiritual connection with the divine masculine and feminine, introductions to 16 ancient deities considered to be “aspects” of the God and Goddess within Wiccan practices, and more: 

  • The history of the Wiccan Goddess and God and their evolution through various traditions
  • An introduction to the Triple Goddess and her 3 aspects: Maiden, Mother and Crone
  • Introductions to the Sun God, the Horned God, the Green Man, and the Holly and Oak Kings
  • How to represent the God and Goddess on the Wiccan altar
  • The mythology, cosmology, and magical practices of the ancient cultures that gave rise to Wicca
  • The most popular deities of the Egyptian, Roman, Greek, and Celtic pantheons
  • Advice for choosing deities to work with, and magical goals and methods specific to each one
  • Tables of correspondence with suggested representations, offerings, and magical domains for each deity covered in the guide

The more you know about the gods and goddesses you seek to work with, the deeper your connection with them will become. As you further your journey into the realm of Wicca, Magical Deities will be a trusted travel guide!

Great books, narrator not so great

I disliked the narrator, her voice is rather irritating and she pronounces words very oddly.
Books are really good, informative and well written.

voice over mistakes distracting

the content is great and informative. it gave me a solid foundation for my practice with options of who I want to study further. But it was obvious certain sections were replaced with different voice over work. the entire tone and volume of the speaker would change mid sentence. that made it hard to pay attention so I hope the producer does better on the next one.

boring voice the topic info interesting .

subject matter was very interesting but the way it was red or the way the story was put together made it extremely boring the author's voice was very calming which is a very good sleep aid.

Great intro book, low budget editing

This is a great beginning guide to Wicca and working with deities. I am very happy that this book discussed the issue of cultural appropriation and how to respectfully work with certain pantheons. My only issue is that it's very obvious when a sentence or word was recorded and inserted later.
