    Hi! I’m somewhat new to Wicca and am trying to find my god and goddess. I know that the goddess needs to relate to stars, as I always find myself looking up into the night sky, and adoring astrology. I was thinking Nut would be my goddess as I love Egypt as well, but my god I’m not sure… I was thinking Ra as I love the sun, but it doesn’t feel right…

    • Aldora says:

      Hi Cam – give it time – also call upon the ones you mentioned to aid you in some way and see how it feels. Keep doing that until you find a fit. Blessings, Aldora

    • Aldora says:

      You never have to pick one god or goddess – use them all – they all have special powers and it’s why they have certain strengths. Call upon them for each individual need you have. Learn how to utilize them all. Good luck, Aldora

    Can you help discern which saint or Wiccan goddess is associated with sleep?

    • Aldora says:

      HI Kathy, a simple search produced a few interesting options…In Greek mythology, Hypnos was the god of sleep. The words hypnotize and hypnotic comes from Hypnos. The Roman equivalent is Somnos, from which other sleep-related word derive, including somnology. Nyx, the goddess of Night is the mother of Hynos. Depending on what your requirements are for sleep you can Check this link for a list of night deities https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_night_deities Also Pasithea was one of the Charities/Graces and the personification of relaxation, meditation she was married to Hypnos. They would be the couple I would call on, using them together would be quite powerful! Good luck, Aldora
