It really depends on which polytheism you want to worship under, there’s more than one set of gods o:
If you’re looking for hellenic polytheism (zues, hera, appollo, hades, poseidon, etc etc etc), I recommend soloontherocks HP resources page or the website Baring the Aegis for a good overview of how to get started.
Heavily support Baring the Aegis as well. Elani is a sweetie and her resources are very helpful! Keep in mind she’s more of a strict Rcon though.
I have a resources page as well, though Jezz’s is better organized and more complete.
Kharis by Sarah Kate Winter is a book that’s basically what you’re asking for – a beginner’s guide to Hellenismos. At least, that’s what I hear; I haven’t read it myself.
If you have any specific questions, I’m happy to answer anything I can or to direct you to other people if I can’t.
<snipping my resource list for length>
Oh gawrsh, thank you for tagging me! I would describe my blog these days as having a strong Mountain Mother/being lit on fire/being an enormous disaster and calling it devotional focus. 🙂
Also everyone should follow oncebittentwiceborn if they want awesome QPOC neohellenic analysis and devotion. They are mostly Dionysian but also have been working with a possible syncretized Aphrodite-Babalon figure that they could tell you much more about than I could. Also they are my dearest bro and we do a lot of magic together and I love them.
YES, GODS DAMN, I only didn’t mention them because I wasn’t sure if they were busy.
Which I could have just asked, but I was dumb. OBTB is a great resource for QPOC polytheist, Hellenic, chthonic stuff, and they are also one of the minds behind the trans-rite devoted to transgender ancestor work.
I thought the whole purpose of this community was the acquisition and sharing of knowledge? As someone who doesn’t really know much about working with deities in any capacity, it is really disheartening that whenever I ask my seniors in this community, I either am ignored or brushed off. I guess I am asking for some sort of “beginners guide” or “how to get started” post for the Theoi? Resources on ritual worshipping practices, communication with the Theoi, choosing the right one for you, etc.
