Astrology is a very intense and powerful method for both divination and magic. It is considered extremely important to understand yourself through this occult art.
Ancient priests and priestesses believed that each sign of the zodiac was affiliated with deities and spirits due to the nature of each sign.
In addition, occultists and mysticists have consulted astrology in order to perform summoning spells and other rituals. Therefore, each sign has affiliated entities from which we have tried to define a patron goddess in this article.
Note that these deities are so powerful that of course, they transcend the limits of a zodiac sign. However, it seems fairer to call upon the “patron goddess” who is naturally closer to you. In addition, this connection may already be clear to you.
Your patron goddess is Brigid (or Brighid), born of Dagda, the almighty good God of the Tuatha of Danann (translated as the people of the goddess Danu- the primordial waters), is a beloved goddess of Ireland, although her worship spread in England where she is better known under the name of Brigantia. Many springs and wells were dedicated to the goddess in Ireland and England.
Brigid is a goddess of fire, light, and heat and her name means “Shiny/Exalted”. She is the master of all the arts (including magic) and is generally depicted as a blacksmith.
It is said that Brigid’s warriors were once called Brigands. She is the guardian of the divine forge and home capable of transforming, with her own magical, alchemical, and divine transmutation, one thing to another.
Aries can call upon her for her Divine Fire to inspire you, give you strength, and “guide your sword”. Brigid will help you balance your intense power and find peace within you. Devote a flame-shaped amulet to Brighid and wear it to draw inspiration and healing.
Your patron goddess is Hathor! She was one of the most popular deities in ancient Egypt. Hathor was worshiped by royalty and the common people. In temples and of course funerary paintings, she is often described as “Mistress of the West”, who welcomes the dead into the afterlife.
In other roles, she was a goddess of love, joy, music, dance, foreign countries, and fertility. It was believed that she helped women in childbirth and that she was the patron goddess of minors. In a few words, everything that a Taurus worships in the most divine essence.

She travels on the speed of the wind from one end of the world to the other and into the depths of the sea and the underworld. Iris, the goddess with golden wings, is the personification of Rainbow. With her 7 main colors of the rainbow, she symbolizes the diversity of life and the 7 (and many more) realms in which she can travel.

Moreover, Artemis, as the Goddess of the Moon was considered one of the most powerful sorceresses the world has never had. Her priestesses could actually call down the Moon.

Sekhmet is one of the oldest and most revered goddesses in the Egyptian Pantheon. Its name derives from the word “sekhem” which means power. Thus, most scholars often call the goddess Sekhmet the “Powerful” or “the one who is powerful.”
Sekhmet was considered a warrior goddess, fierce and powerful, protector of all that is sacred, of the Egyptian borders, and of the reign of the pharaohs. For these attributes, she is venerated as “the one before whom evil trembles” and as “the one who mauls”, emphasizing her aspects as divine retribution.

One day, Hades watched Persephone playing with Cerberus and decided that she should be his forever, so he stole her from the world, taking her into the underworld.
Your patron goddess is the queen of hell who is also responsible for the change of seasons. When Persephone goes to the underworld, at the autumnal equinox, Mother Nature falls asleep. Upon her return from the underworld, at the spring equinox, Mother Nature is resurrected!
Virgos can call upon Persephone to give them hope even when darkness has fallen. Persephone can help them understand that there is no real end, life goes on and spring will return!

The sacred animal of Athena is the Owl, who observes everything, knowing the truth. She will make sure that we get the wisdom we dream of if we deserve it. Therefore, we must be honest and good-hearted.
