RE: The Ritual and Calling in if the 4 directions to set a sacred space.

According to

  • Ancient Celtic spirituality did not bring in the 4 directions. All space was sacred to them.

  • Ancient Celtic tradition did not need the God/Goddess balance that is present in contemporary Wiccan practices.

  • The deity calls to the individual. These are usually “local” deities.

  • The individual does not have to be oath bound to a deity, it is more like a relationship/friendship.

  • When referring to god or goddess, I was unsure how to handle the upper and lower case. I have kept a capital God for references to the concept of the God of the priests.

  • For Marta’s gods and goddesses, I have used the lower case god and goddess. These deities were more relaxed and friendly, usually. Unless it is a specific Goddess being used in a blessing, etc.
