Which I suppose is the cue to drop in this old favourite:

...Hee.


Sweet!

I jokingly imagined a similar scene a while back, after reading a story posted here about someone who told her fellow coven members that The Morrigan was also a Goddess of shopping.

I imagined The Morrigan, sharpening a spearhead while lounging on a throne made entirely of human skulls. Meanwhile, one of Her warrior maidens read a list of every prayer request made to The Morrigan that day.

I thought to myself, I pity the New Agey person who prays to Her for advice about shoes.

That prayer might be answered, but perhaps not in the desired manner.

I don't see anything wrong with using gods/goddesses in a spell or charm, but I would make sure that I had at least some kind of relationship with the specific one(s) I used. I don't think picking a god to help you based on the fact that his name has the right number of syllables or rhymes, and fits nicely into the meter of your spell is a good idea.

A friend of mine (in his early days of magic) did this, and the results of his spell were not exactly what he had in mind. I suppose it could have been his general lack of knowledge that led to his wonky results, but personally, I think he got a goose from the god he haphazardly included in his spell.  Grin

LOL, would make a good entry to our worst spell poetry-thread, though.
