Below is a list of Celtic Gods and Goddesses. Some of the Gods and Goddesses may have been worship by
different tribes, (Irish, celtic, etc.) but when using Magick you can ask any of these for their help.
Aine - Goddess of love and fertility, later known as an Irish fairy queen.
Airmid - A healing goddess of the Tuatha de Danann, goddess of medicinal plants and keeper of the spring that brings the dead back to life.
Brigit (Bridget, Brighid, Brigindo) - Brigit is the Irish-Celtic goddess of healing and fertility, patroness of smiths, poets and doctors, symbolized by a white swan.

So well loved is Brigit, that she was made into a Christian saint when the Celts turned to Christianity.
Fomorians (Fomors) - In Irish-Celtic mythology, the Fomorians are a race of demonic giants, the original occupants of Ireland. The Tuatha DÈ Danann, the Irish race of gods, arrived and destroyed the Fomorian hold over Ireland for good in the second battle of Mag Tuireadh.

The Horned God is born at the winter solstice, marries the Goddess at Beltane, and dies at the summer solstice. He alternates with the Goddess of the moon in ruling over life and death, continuing the cycle of death, rebirth and reincarnation. Paleolithic cave paintings found in France that depict a stag standing upright or a man dressed in stag costume seem to indicate that Cernunnos' origins date to those times. Romans sometimes portrayed him with three cranes flying above his head.

Creed of the Old World
We of the Old Religion have our own particular compact with our deities that charges simply, "An it harm none, do as ye will."
And our gods do not despise us for being human but delight in our celebrations of life and love. We are ageless souls, only for a while within bodies - merely visitors upon this plane. We are brothers to the gods and only temporarily cousins to the ape,and our lives belong to us, not to this world nor to its earthly governors. We are not doomed to shame and decay; not lost; not indentured to perish with earthly manifestations; not disposed to eternal misery for any past or present lapses of courage or wisdom.
We are as children in the school of life who must learn our lessons, on life at a time, before we graduate. Our lives span the march of time, striving upward, subordinate only to our individual probity and growth.
But in this mortal life, greedy, trivial hierophants and mundane rulers have perpetrated a fraud upon humanity. They have purloined for profit and temporal power, our legitimate heritage, and that of all society, and have substituted for it shame, despair, and fear, inventing evil deities to terrify and to constrain mankind from the exercise of his own native conscience.
Still we take our uncertain portion time and again, joining with the species on this plane, only to meet with earthly disunity and distress; only to be told by bogus, uncelestial shepherds that we are deficient and fundamentally iniquitous; constantly rebuked that our natural birthright is insubstantial or even sinful, and that we must cleave to the pious injunctions of reigning mortals, no matter how oppressive,or suffer beyond measurable time, yearning for some mythical golden glory just out of reach, but somehow never quite worthy of it.
That is the apocryphal hell and the fabled satan; they are of mortal creation; they are now, not in some remote bye-and-bye; and those who choose to believe in them perpetuate them in this earth. But nevertheless, by sublime design, despite narrowness, folly or fear, we all, each and every one, possess this wondrous legacy:
That each of us sustains a singular covenant with the cosmic, in that the soul is and ever was, one with the universe, conducting itself in concordance with the absolute. And whatever paths it may walk, or whichever faith it may follow, on sojourn at a time, each shall as a consequence of that oneness, and attuning with its destiny, eventually return on its own to its source to again be part of that totality, atoned, aware and unshackled.
The Law of Power
The power shall not be used to bring harm,
to injure or control others.
But if the need rises,
the power shall be used to protect
your life and the lives of others.
The power is used only as need dictates.
The power can be used for your own gain ,
as long as by doing so you harm none.
It is unwise to accept money for use of the power,
for it quickly controls its taker.
Be not as those other religions.
Use not the power for prideful gain, for such
cheapens the mysteries of Wicca and Magick.
Ever remember that the power is a sacred
gift of the Goddess and God,
and should never be misused or abused.
And this is the Law of Power.
