One last note about deities: If you are going to pray to, invoke or otherwise use them in any way you must do a little research on them first. For example, Hecate should only be called on at night, Kali can be a very vengeful Goddess in the act of protecting you and others, like the Morrigan, can’t be invoked just to see if you can do it. Some of these deities have very strong personalities and do not like to be trifled with. Do your research first. This will show them that you are at least trying to get to know them. Otherwise it’s like inviting strangers from off the street into your home for a meal. You might get lucky and find some nice people or you might find an ax-murderer. Do the work and you will be rewarded.
