Celtic Witchcraft – A Distinct Tradition

Posted by Cormac O'Dwyer on 7/27/2014 to Occult Weekly

Celtic WitchcraftIn the last decade or so, people have been obsessed with anything that is Celtic, from myth to music.

While witchcraft based on the Celtic tradition has been increasing in popularity, there are many followers who are still not very sure about how this kind of witchcraft is different from the other types of Pagan worship.

This is the kind of witchcraft that loves the earth and it also believes strongly in theology. As such, Gods and Goddesses are important to the followers of this form of Wicca.

The Celtic witchcraft identifies two chief deities. These are the Horned God and the Mother Goddess. Celtic Wiccans do worship other deities as well apart from these two deities, but these are by far the most prominent figures in this tradition.

Horoscopes in Detail Cancer
The sign of Cancer is one that I hold dear, as it rises to prominence just as the height of summer arrives. July is lit at night by the stars of this ancient sign.

The ancient Greek legend that lies behind this sign is especially interesting. Supposedly, as Hercules was battling the hydra, he stepped on a crab that was crawling along the ground. The crab bit the warrior in self-defence, and Hercules then killed the unlucky creature. The Goddess Hera then placed the crab amongst the stars. It has remained there ever since.

John Dee – A Magickal Mind

John Dee

We have previously discussed famous occultists, but one mind deserves special mention. The Elizabethan age wouldn't have been the same without a certain singular genius.

John Dee is a presence astride the 16th century. He moved in the highest elements of society, advising and dispensing knowledge. He strove to the highest levels in his studies of the occult, alchemy and astrology.

Can you imagine a witch moving through the White House, advising the President? That’s the level that John Dee rose to, being one of Queen Elizabeth’s most trusted lieutenants. At this point in time, the Queen was one of the most powerful people on the planet. That makes John Dee one of the most powerful occultists who has ever walked the Earth.
