Wicca Magical Deities: A Guide to the Wiccan God and Goddess, and Choosing a Deity to Work Magic With by Lisa ChamberlainI usually hate History books, but not this book though i skimmed through certain god and goddesses i wasnt so keen on. Osiris and Isis to the win. And thank god for Rick Riordan, so that I actually knew what they were talking about. Cant think of a better person than Riordan to have taught me about Egyptian, Roman, Greek mythology in the most interesting way. And for all my Percy love, i thought my choice would certainly be a Greek Deity, but here iam rooting for Egyptian beliefs and all. Thats one thing about Wicca, it never forces its decisions on you, you have your own choice based on what you connect with and nothing is wrong or right. If I didnt know the path i chose was right already, maybe now I know for sure.
Celtic Mythology: The Gaelic Gods ¦ Psychology and Irish Mythology
One of the most beautiful and widely-celebrated aspects of Wicca , particularly in comparison to almost every other religion to come out of the last few thousand years, is its equal emphasis on the feminine and masculine.

Gods of the Celts
Posted By: Dattatreya Mandal July 2, When it comes to the ancient Celts , the scope is not really about a singular group of people who dominated some specific region or realm. Instead, we are talking about a vast and variegated culture that made its presence felt all the way from the Iberian peninsula Spain and Portugal and Ireland to the frontiers of Liguria in Italy and the upper Danube. Suffice it to say, their mythology rather mirrored this multifarious scope, with various tribes, chiefdoms, and even later kingdoms having their own set of folklore and pantheons. Essentially, what we know as Celtic mythology and whom we know as Celtic gods and goddesses is borrowed from a patchwork of oral traditions and local tales that were conceived in pre-Christian Gaul France , Iberia, Britain, and Ireland. Furthermore, these regional Celtic gods had their cognates and associated deities in other Celtic cultures, with the apt example of Lugus — as he was known in Gaul, and Lugh — as he was known in Ireland. To that end, in this article, we have mainly focused on the ancient Celtic gods and goddesses of Ireland and Gaul, with the former having its distinct mythical narrative preserved in part by medieval Irish literature.
