What god(s) do you worship by your actions?

Artemis, Isis, Maat, Aphrodite, Juno, Athena, Hermes, Jupiter, Saturn, Apollo, Ares…probably be shorter to list the gods I don’t honour/resonate with at all. I.e. trickster & death/underworld gods

Good question! I'd be whichever god is a hermit 90% of the time but comes out of his cave to share wisdom and help others who are open hearted and willing to share loving kindness, as well as those who show interest in what I know instead of alienating me for being wise. Oh, and to get groceries. I spend so much of my time learning that I'm convinced if this were the pre-internet era, my home would be wall to wall books. Thank god for e-books that can all fit onto my tablet. Even though my home is physically in the core of a city, I live on the social periphery. I tried for years to not be that way but it just happens by default. Mostly because I have severe illness that keeps me imprisoned. I think it will always be this way. I have been so "off the grid" that reintegration with mainstream society is impossible for me at this point. The confinement of having to think/act according to a group's rules would cause intense anxiety. For the same reason, I can't tolerate roommates. I tried that about 4 or 5 times I and can't live with other human beings. Their unaddressed crazy makes me crazy. I'm a very niche creature. Honestly I don't know how I'm even alive. I feel like that animal you find in a rainforest that is living on top of a fungus that's living on a tree that's living in a specific 15 square kilometer patch where only those trees can grow; and if someone came in and cut down those 15 square kilometers, I would be doomed. My niche is so narrow that if society shifts in a minor unfavourable way, I will go extinct.

In classical astrology, I seem to be the most like Saturn as much as I'm loathe to admit it... except without the hard-edged personality. My home surroundings are as aesthetically beautiful as I can make them, with lots of plants, crystals, colourful art, wall hangings, medicinal herbs (I have a full apothecary in my home), altars to various beings, science projects (I'm always looking under the microscope or practicing chemical reactions), etc. So although I'm a hermit, my home environment is like the wizard's tower. So... not quite Saturnian. Maybe Saturn and Venus combined. The secrets of the universe and spiritual matters are more important to me than other worldly concerns. I relate to Thoth from ancient Egypt as well.

If anyone knows any other gods off the top of their head that they thought of when they read this, I'd love to know. I'm not versed in a lot of traditional pantheons.
I’d love to see your natal chart! I study traditional Hellenistic astrology.

Btw, I completely relate to being imprisoned by illness though my case is due to accidents as a young child. I’ve spent most of the last 14 years as an involuntary hermit. Very bad for me however as I’m extremely extroverted & need people to care for. And we share many interests! That’s one good thing about isolation; you can focus on your various skills, hobbies, art etc.

Is there a god you most resonate with? Not just think you are the most like, but also appreciate.

Any solar god.
 
I've long come to the conclusion that the monumental achievements of Western Civilizations are inextricably intertwined with the Catholic Church and that in fact Western Civilization as we understand it could not have existed without it. To me that's just a historical fact.

"I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord," etc, you know the drill
I worship my Trinitarian God by performing the following actions:
following 8 Commandments out of 10, but I m working on it
Sanctification of work : trying to work as best as I can with the aim of loving God and serving others
Comfort the afflicted telling all kind of shit because I m unable to offer any kind of practical help
Abstaining from meat on Friday (I do drugs instead)
Dissing any other Christian denomination with the exception of the Orthodox Church
Beg God for help like a bitch when I think I m overdosing and lying to His face making empty promises like " I m cleaning my act"
