What is it like working with Hermes?
When Hermes is your Patron, life can be . . . interesting. Your Patron will always influence your life in ways you may not expect.
I can’t tell you how many iterations of the following conversation I have had:
Person: Uhk. The Greek pantheon? Really?
Me: I’m here with Hermes.
Person: Oh. Hermes? That’s different. Hermes is cool.
I have heard it from practitioners of Asatru, Judaism, Christianity… you name it. He’s the nicest entity you will meet, pretty much anywhere. If you pride yourself on working with uninvolved gods who bear a striking antipathy for humankind, are highly judgmental and hate people who don’t invoke them in exactly the right way, then never work with Hermes. You won’t like him.
That doesn’t mean that working closely with him is easy. It’s not. Relationships get harder as the participants become more intimate. I think most of us have had the experience of moving into an apartment with a friend, or we at least know someone else who has had this experience. You can be great friends…
