As some of you may know, Jow and I will be opening Trevia soonish in the next few months. My question is, if we want to do work for a client who works with different deities than we do or do an incense for a deity we don’t work with, how do you work with deities like that? I’m working on a sekrit project involving Eruzlie and (a) I don’t work with Her (b) I don’t really want her “moving in” and (c) she’s notoriously easy to offend. How do I work with her on a contractual business level and then . . .leaving so soon? Here’s your hat, here’s the door, without offending Her and other potential deities.
I’ve never worked with deities on a contractual level, usually I wound up getting invested in them and starting a relationship. Tips?
Edited to add: Really, I think what I’m trying to figure out is that while I would never take on a “service” request that I couldn’t reasonably fufill due to moral, pantheon, layperson issues, what about standard pagan store supplies? Like candles and incense? Is it necessary to have any kind of relationship to make items in honor of a deity? Should these items come pre-“zinging” or is it up to the practioner? Is research and formulas enough to make these items?
