In my experience Oak, she will make herself known to you at the right time in your development. I am sorry that i cannot be more helpful.
Have you tried to meditate upon the answer.........Guides come around us within meditation.

Have you had an experience with a deity that you want to identify? Or are you looking for a goddess to worship?

If it is the former, you'll have to just research, meditate, and pray to certain deities to get an idea of what sort of goddess you connect with; and hopefully one that connects with you as well.

Oak Goblinfrost, Why did, you pick the name "oak" ? Are there any goddesses associated with oaks? I know that they were held in high esteem by Druids.
I pray simply to the Great Mother or Mother. We get along fine that way. But if I ever call on a particular aspect of Her, it would be Hecate. All goddesses are but different aspects of the Great Mother.

Why not do some research and find which one resonates with you at present? Do you feel drawn to celtic, roman, egyptian or norse archtypes? Or do you feel more drawn to Gaia, to the Mother or Lady? Go within yourself and ask.

The Goddess has many different faces that She wears and there really isn't any need to find a particular aspect of Her to call upon. Read about the different names that She goes by and what each one represents. And you are right, there is no rush.

If you're interested in revering Celtic goddesses, you'd benefit from reading some of the myths that involve them. Brighid, An Morrighan, Epona, Ceridwen and Sirona are some particularly well known ones.

Just continue meditating, and you'll find out what you need.

Are there any books you know about were I could read about celtic?
or websites?
Thank you for your help :)
I just got scott cunningham's Book of shadows, and there is a list of names of the goddess, im reading through them and i feel a slight connection with Proserpine, Diana and Iris, I dont know anything about them but these names stood out the most.
Thanks youi again :)

Oak, there really is no rush, especially at your age. You need to become more easy and relaxed in your spirituality, and learn more in a general sense.
Your goddess knows who she is and will tell you in her own good time. These long lists of gods and goddesses are aspects of the same things. There is one goddess who has more names than you can count. May I make a suggestion and that is to focus your attention on The Lady. She is the feminine energy behind Nature, the bestower of fertility and creativity who brings seeds to fruition. She is the Mother of all things and has been worshipped by mankind for hundreds of thousands of years. You, and all of us, are her children so what better as a goddess and so easy to honour. She is all around you in the world. She is Mother Nature or Gaia whichever you prefer.
By the way, The Lady is part of the Celtic pantheon.

Now you asked about the Celtic world http://www.pantheon.org

Norseman, what a beautiful , calming picture that evokes in my mind "The Lady"
Forest glades, lakes and streams, raising Her hands in blessing while Her cloak slip down Her arms. Very inspiring and a good reminder of Her beauty. Blessed be

I agree with Norseman. When I started down this path seven years ago, I had it set in my mind the exact craft I would practice and which pantheon I would call on. All of that has changed, and now I realize that part of walking this path is the constant transformation we experience. I still do not have a patron god or goddess, though a couple have approached me (like Hecate, as I mentioned). Even if I do dedicate myself to one particular aspect of the Lord and/or Lady at some point, I know that as the years go by my needs will change and new teachers will come.

So spend your time studying the different ways of our practice and don't commit yourself to anything just yet. If something resonates deeply within you, pursue it and see where you end up. The Goddess has her ways. :wink:

Also - I love pantheon.org and use it often! :D
