Greco-Roman and Celtic Dieties

Here are two lists that contain the name of some of the Greco Roman Goddesses and the Deities of the Celtic Calendar. There are many women who already have a knowledge of the energies of the ancient deities and can apply some of the myths to their own lives. Others may have a superficial knowledge but wish to learn more. We are not experts, but we hope to present a few stories that our readers may find interesting and informative over the next few months. (Visit the "Goddess of the Month" section for more information.)
There are many ways of discovering the goddess within each of us. Whether that has any significance or relevance to life today remains the decision of the individual. There are many paths to follow in the search for personal meaning. For example, if you have an interest in astrology, then discovering the placement of the asteroid Goddesses in the birth chart would be helpful in identifying their energy in a very visual way. Working with that information can be useful in a practical or spiritual manner. The importance of discovery lies in opening levels of self understanding. We also provide information about resource material that can enhance the learning process.
