I can only assume that this rather vague topic prompt is meant to refer to *my* patrons in particular, since the topic of patronage has already been covered.
Bast has been around me for about as long as I remember. I don't know that Patron would be the word, but we're pretty tight. Anubis and I are also pretty tight. He and Bast seem to go hand-in-hand quite often. These two seem the most likely to intercede on my behalf. My relationship with these two is more familial than patrician though. Is patrician the right word? Whatever.
There are a great many presences I have more than passing acquaintances with, but I don't know that any of them would be patrons per se. At least, not at present. Some have in the past given patronage, and I have done works for them. I honestly don't know who, if anyone, has that kind of stake in my life right now. I was close to Babalon for a while, we've always had a dialogue, but again I don't know if Patron is the word. Lilith too. On occasion Hekate. Malek Taus. Tiamat, primordial she-dragons and serpents. Santa Muerte or Libitina, Holy Death by any other name. Snake presences from all sectors. The moon. Crow. Openers of Ways as Legba and Wepawet. Patrons, no, but close working acquaintences perhaps, friends, extended family members.
Sara e Kali has been around me a long time, forever. Perhaps she is the closest to a lifelong Patron I have. I can't even say that with much confidence right now, though it is highlighting a need to speak to her soon. Once I make landfall I will arrange to go to France and see her.
This post is all mushy. Bleh.
wikisurfing my beloved & well-thumbed copy of the awesome Encyclopedia of Spirits by Judika Illes, I happened to note that the Machiavellian Rebel Angel Azazel is credited with teaching women the arts of cosmetics and metalwork. With Lilith and Melek Taus, they are a formidible trifecta of ancient and willful desert presences. It's interesting, because I'm currently a make up artist, and when I make landfall I am taking up...
More on the resultant mindfuck later.
