So, I am hosting a blog party called 15 Days of Welcoming The God because I believe we need to honor the coming Spring which symbolizes the rebirth of the God. I'm also doing this because I want to get closer to the male aspect of deity. We focus so much on the Goddess as Pagans that sometimes we neglect the God.
I've always been drawn to the Greek deities, most particularly Aphrodite. I've also felt a certain draw to Apollo as well but I've never done a whole lot of research on him. With the blog party on the way, I thought it would be fitting for me to research him and spend time getting to know him like I did with Aphrodite.
So I would like to share some of what I've learned about Apollo from the small bit of research I have done. I had always known that he was a God of music and poetry, but I didn't know about everything else he is associated with. He is a God of light and the sun; truth and prophecy; medicine, healing, and plague; and of course music, poetry, and the arts. Obviously I have a lot to learn about this fascinating God and I am so glad that I finally decided to answer the call to get closer to this God. I'll share more of what I learn about Apollo in the next couple of days. I'll also share a meditation I like to use when getting to know deities.
