Deities & Spirits of the Fae Folk

The table below lists Deities, Spirits and other Higher Powers that can be called upon for rituals, spells, and other magical work relating the Fae and other nature spirits.  As always, before working with any of them, do some research to become familiar with all of their facets, lest you be caught off guard by their ways.  Each Higher Power is unique in they way they approach a situation – some may be very straightforward, others brutal, and others gentle.  If you are unsure who to pick, you should instead begin with a spell written by someone else, or do a lot more research.  Do not rush into any magical work.  Take your time and understand your actions, and their potential consequences, fully before proceeding. Deities & Spirits of the Fae Folk
