Astrology is the very intense and powerful method for both divination and magical purposes. It is considered extremely important to understand yourself through this occult art. Ancient Priests and Priestesses believed that each Zodiac Sign is affiliated with deities and spirits due to the nature of each sign. Moreover, occultists and mysticists consulted astrology in order to perform summoning spells and other rituals. Therefore, each sign has affiliated entities from which we tried to define one Patron Goddess in this article.
