Carol Shannon’s Deities:
As my bio mentions, I work with three deities.
Pluto, to whom I am a high priestess, is interested in anything to do with transformation, and manifesting things. He has been the one pushing me to expand my astrological practice, because of the transformational power it can bring for people. He has the most to say in a conscious sense; you could say he’s the most talkative, and the most protective of my safety. He is traditionally known as the god of the Underworld, and he rules over the spheres of death and transformation.
Thetis is the second most communicative, although she tends to send me a combination of feelings and words. Being an embodiment of Mother Ocean, she is possibly the most ancient of the three, and she is interested in anything to do with calming emotions, and healing. When I’ve been sick, or in emotional pain, or helping others deal with these things, she is very much a presence. She guided me to learn heart-centered meditation, which I believe saved my life.
Mab (also known as Maeve, Medb, Meadhbh) is a Celtic goddess of Fae. For me, she tends to come to my dreams more than the others. I have really had to learn to tune into my spirit senses in order the “hear” her, although she certainly can make herself heard when she wants. She is interested in my connection to nature, especially the forest, and birds, which are a fascination to me. Lately, she has been pushing me to learn herbal and plant spirit medicine. She tells me she has known the women on my mother’s side of the family down through the centuries, who have all been magic-workers, with nature and plants especially. None of my three deities seem to be particularly interested in rituals, as a rule, although there have definitely been exceptions. Mostly, I just focus on listening to them, and during meditations or healings, I have had all three come through me.
