About Us

Goddess Envy:  Goddess Envy has been a shared conceptual dream of Amethyst and Dragon’s for many years even before they met.   It took the two souls finding each other to make it a reality.  Both people have thrown much of themselves and their beliefs into it.  Our number one goal is to educate.  So many pagans still feel the persecution of their beilefs.  In a world where equal rights is on the forefront of many political and social topics religion should be included. We hope to bring nature back to the suburbs with a brick and mortar store in Aurora within a few years.    
Amethyst:  I came into the pagan path as a sophomore in high school.  I have since delved deeply into my own spiritual path and education.  I completed most of a year and a day program with Colorado’s Collage of Wicca and Old Lore.  I realized that I needed more solitary teachings and broke away before finishing.  I have lived a magical life for many years now as a solitary practitioner.  Growing up in Aurora, CO I -like many of my fellow practiononers - have had to travel into the heart of Denver to find the supplies and knowledge that I needed.  The thought of a store closer to home has been a dream for a long time.  I have felt a calling for Goddess Envy for a number of years and through the aid of my husband have finally been able to make it a reality.

What’s in a Name

What’s in a name?  Well- a lot actually.  It is important to feel powerful and magical while doing a rite, or ritual.  You should never feel silly when using your magical name- if you do, then you have chosen wrong.

Keep in mind that you may be using your name in large group rituals or gatherings.  Try not to choose a name that is highly over used.  Also avoid a name that may be hard to take seriously like Lord Hippopotamus Wildflower.  In most circles “Lord” and “Lady” are reserved for elders or those with extensive experience.

On the note of being taken seriously by both others in circle and yourself- avoid names you found in sci-fi or fantasy books.  Frodo, Gandalf, Luke, Yoda, and Qui-gon, will never be seen as a serious practitioner. 

If you are looking for a neat sounding name but the elements you have chosen don’t sound powerful in English, it has been recommended to look the term up in Gaelic or in a different tongue.  Please, please, please – if you do this- keep in mind that we don’t all speak Gaelic, so if we butcher it at ritual - don’t lose your cool.   

Of course we need to cover the gifted names.  Sometimes you are given a name by a spirit guide or even a pat/matron god or goddess.  Take this seriously as the gift that it is.  If you are unsure how to use it- Everyday life?, Ritual only?,  Magical community?, All of the above? – Ask them, they will guide you. 

When choosing a name there are many things you may wish to consider.  Think long term.  It is okay to change a magical or craft name in the future – but not every few weeks or months.  Again, you won’t be taken seriously.  In some traditions a craft name is not taken until a full year and a day has been completed. 

Consider the qualities and properties of stones, herbs, animals you may wish to convey with your name.  Here is a very basic list of common used name elements.  God and Goddess names should be avoided unless they are given to you.  It can seem hubristic to assume a god/goddess’ name.  You may use a name as the root of yours but add something to convey a follower of, or child of that deity.  

Animals: Bear, Wolf, Fox, Raven, Hawk, Dove, Eagle, Crow, Raven, Jay, Owl, Robin, Wren, Cricket, Dragonfly, Firefly, Salamander, Cat, Coyote, Fox, Moose, Bear, Badger, Elk, Otter,

Plants/herbs: Ash, Aspen, Birch, Briar, Clover, Daisy, Elder, Elm, Fern, Hawthorn, Heather, Holly, Iris, Ivy, Juniper, Oak, Rowan, Willow, Basil, Cinnamon, Ginger, Honeysuckle, Sage, Rosemary

Stones: Amythyst, Amber, Aquamarine, Clay, Copper, Crystal, Diamond, Emerald, Garnet, Gypsum, Jade, Jasper, Mica, Obsidian, Onyx, Opal, Ruby, Silver

Elements:  Aria, Breeze, Cirrus, Gale, Storm, Thunder, River, Forest, Sky, Pyre, Solar, Sparkle, Sundance, Brook, Cascade, Cove, Pond, River, Rain, Raindrop, Rain Forest, Spring, Snow, Snowflake,  Desert, Glen, Meadow, Mossy, Sandy, Savanna,

Celestial bodies:  Mars, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, Orion, Andromeda

Astrology:  Pisces, Leo, Taurus, Aries, Libra, Virgo, Sagittarius

Mythical Creatures: Dragon, Phoenix, Griffon, 

A final note- there are also many people that are not out in the open with their practices yet.  A separate name can help or hinder keeping the lives separate.  Keep in mind that if someone is using a different name in circle – be respectful and don’t holler it across the store when you bump into them getting groceries.  Greet them generically, if you must, and let them choose how much to disclose about themselves.
