CELTIC DEITIES




This is only a partial list of Celtic Deities. You can find a complete list in my correspondence course.

The following Deities may be encountered on your spiritual journies and vision quests. You may find that you tend to encounter one or more of these Deities more than the others. This may be due to the fact that you have consciously or unconsciously chosen personal Deities to work with. If you are also a practicing Pagan/Wiccan than you will have a personal Deity you prefer to work with. If you are an ecclectic practitioner, that's o.k., you should practice whatever is comfortable. However, you should still be aware that a certain Deity may chose to work with you just as your Animal Spirit Guide has, which will lead to a sort of an attachment for a certain period of time. This often has to do with a lesson which you must learn, or a message that you must interpret, which is in the realm of which that Deity rules.
