Don't really work with greek deities, but hell, Chiron seems a nice enough sort.

I think I answered in the tread on the original OccultForums, but I do not remember and I do not have time right now to re read the entire tread, so I will answer again.

I work most with Circe and Hermes and while I have not worked much with Them lately I consider Circe to be my patron Deity.

Chiron's not a deity, he's a centaur.

According to an archaic myth,he was sired by Kronos (Cronus) when he had taken the form of a horse and impregnated the nymph Philyra.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiron

He was immortal,surely as son of a Titan and a Nymph,he getss at least minor deity status? C'mon.His half brothers and sisters are the Olympians.

He is definately a heroic character and the wounded healer is an incredibly strong archetype.

Apologies to the non Scots speakers,but the point I was arguing with our legendary Celtic rhetoric and grasp of the facts was that the Centaurs (as a whole) were/are (according to your perspective) a bunch of hooligans.

Well,the Thessalians/Greeks did, immortalise him,that is....probably because of the points mentioned/highlighted in this excerpt below[again from link,above]None too shabby a list,not very jaikey like at all.

I just love working with Hermes and Cronus and their orphis hymns.They inspire me to give my best in all of the rituals.

i'm talking about Cronus (or Kronos) the leader of the titanes...son of Gaia and Uranus.Kronos=κερασφόρος !!! [happyface] ..here's his orphic hymn in Greek :

Ἀιθαλής, μακάρων τε θεῶν πάτερ ἠδὲ καὶ ἀνδρῶν, ποικιλόβουλ᾽, ἀμίαντε, μεγασθενές, ἄλκιμε Τιτάν, ὃς δαπανᾶις μὲν ἅπαντα καὶ αὔξεις ἔμπαλιν αὐτός, δεσμοὺς ἀρρήκτους ὃς ἔχεις κατ᾽ ἀπείρονα κόσμον, αἰῶνος Κρόνε παγγενέτωρ, Κρόνε ποικιλόμυθε, Γαίης τε βλάστημα καὶ Οὐρανοῦ ἀστερόεντος, γέννα, φυή, μείωσι, Ῥέας πόσι, σεμνὲ Προμηθεῦ, ὃς ναίεις κατὰ πάντα μέρη κόσμοιο, γενάρχα, ἀγκυλομῆτα, φέριστε· κλύων ἱκετηρίδα φωνὴν πέμποις εὔολβον βιότου τέλος αἰὲν ἄμεμπτον.

I don't think I could say it without sounding egotistical nor would it sound very believable.

You could PM Belial if you really want to know, though I doubt you will believe it.

I am having a change of perception on what I have said in this thread. IOLH7 if you want to know what I meant plainly, simply message me and I will explain bluntly.

Hecate, Artemis, Demeter, Apollo, and Aphrodite. Hecate, the Mother of Night as I often call her is very important to me as she is the ruler of holy secrets and shadowy forces(shadow here has nothing to do with evil, merely a force that is part of the balance. The mysterious counter part to Aether). She rules death as a necessary part of existence. Artemis the queen of the wilderness is a balancing force. She is the huntress who to takes and gives what is necessary. Apollo is a God of writers and musicians and thus is quite important to me. Demeter is the archetypal earth mother to me and it the maintainer of sacred law and death which replenishes the earth. It's not a well known side to her, but she is also a death Goddess. Aphrodite the queen of love to me is ruler of one of the most powerful redemptive and balancing forces in the universe. Love. Divine love which soothes the soul and yet creates a blazing inferno within each heart.
