Please note: this is not a list of all the Gods and Goddesses out there, this is just the list that I have at this time.
Angus/Oengus - Celtic god of love and youth. Unusually a male representation of love and beauty. His music draws lovers of music and beauty to him. His kisses were said to turn into singing birds.
Origin: Ireland and Scotland
Symbols: Harp, songbirds
Arhianhod - Goddess of “the Silver Wheel,” the Moon and the stars. In Welsh mythology, the constellation Corona Borealis is known as “Caer Arhianrhod,” the tower or castle of Arhianrhod. Connected with spinning and weaving, she is a goddess of connections, particularly those between birth, death and regeneration. She is a wisdom figure who keeps the knowledge of the past, the present and the future in her crystal tower. She represents deep soul knowledge, intuition and the mysteries of the life cycle.
Symbols: Spinning wheel, webs, the Full Moon, stars
Belenos/Bel - The Celtic Sun god dubbed “the British Apollo” by the Romans. Deity of light, health and healing, Belenos was thought – in some parts of northern Europe – to drive a chariot carrying the sun’s disc. In his healing aspect, he is associated with healing waters, wells and springs. The prefix Bel means “shining” and was often linked with solar and aquatic deities, such as the Romano-British goddess Belisama (shining one), so it is unsurprising that his image is found carved into the first-century BCE temple at Aqua Sulis, a natural spa in Bath, England. His name is given to the May festival of Beltane, which means literally “the fire of the God Bel,” and part of the seasonal festival celebrating the rise of the Sun. His victory over the hours of darkness is celebrated at Litha, the summer solstice, and his imminent fall is marked by the sending of fiery wheels down hillsides at that time of year.
Origin: Northern Europe and Britain
Symbols: Wheel, sunburst, head with penumbra or halo
Bel/Beli/Sol - The female aspect of Bel/Belenos, Bel or Beli is celebrated as a goddess in feminist and goddess-centred Wicca, and has many of the aspects attributed to her male counterpart. However, Bel is also seen as the inner, as well as the out, physical Sun, and a link between the healing, regenerative power of the sun and the nurturing, restorative power of the soul
Origin: Northern Europe and Britain
Symbols: Tidal rivers, the wheel, sunbursts, serpentine hair, May Day morning dew
Brighid/Bridie/Brigit - Celtic fire goddess associated with healing, poetry and metalwork. The triple goddess Brighid has close connections with the Sun and her fire aspect is seen as the warming breath that warms the Earth to end winter and bring the thaw and the first snowdrops. Brighid is midwife to the spring, and is a protector of women, children and newborn animals, particularly sheep and cattle. Many healing shrines, wells and springs in England and Ireland are named for her. She is associated with serpents – ancient symbol of the healing powers of the Earth Goddess – and her festival is at Imbolc, a time associated with the birth of lambs. Today, Brighid is a goddess of independence, integrity and energy, often depicted in her threefold aspect with fiery red hair.
Origin: Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, and England
Symbols: Fire, wells, healing cauldron, serpents, anvil and hammer, dandelion, snowdrops, amethysts, white candles
Bloddueuth - Maiden goddess of springtime and flowers. A “Green Woman” for the late spring, Bloddueuth in Welsh legends is built from flowers by a magician to provide a wife for the divine hero, Llew Llaw Gyffes, son of Arhianrhod. In this legend, Bloddueuth is portrayed as deceitful and is turned into an owl as punishment. Present-day pagans interpret this story slightly differently, seeing Bloddueuth’s dual nature as spirit of Sun and Moon as an aspect of the Goddess involved in the initiation of the hero. Further, goddess-centred pagans concentrate on her function as promotion vegetation and growth, and celebrate her at Beltane and in the early summer months.
Symbols: Flower hoops, owls
Ceridwen - Cthonic deity, aslo goddess of Earth wisdom. Sometimes seen as a crone aspect of the goddess, she is also a mother and gives birth to Taliesin, the great poet and bard. She initiates him through their famous shape-shifting chase, in which she finally swallows him as a corn of grain by turning herself into a hen and giving birth to him nine months later. Ceridwen is goddess of the cauldron of Earth, and regeneration. As shape-shifter, life-giver, initiator and mistress of magic, Ceridwen is a favorite goddess of modern-day Wiccans.
Symbols: Cauldron, sows, hens, magic, shape-shifting
Cerne/Cernunnos/Herne - Celtic antlered god and spirit of the Greenwood. Consort to the Mother Godess and archetypal symbol of fertility and regeneration. Sometimes depicted as the Green Man, Jack-in-the-Green or Robin Hood, he is a favorite of contemporary Wiccans who see him as a positive male role model; a “green man” who cares for the environment, is capable of cyclical change and is a protector in touch with his emotions. Although his origins are truly ancient, he is seen as a virile young god and a wise, mature, and knowing male aspect of the divine. Sometimes known as “Herne the Hunter,” his divine status is sometimes confused with a mortal identity, as there appear to be many “last resting places” of Herne all over England; an echo, perhaps, of the rites recorded in very old folk songs where humans could take on the role of the fertility god by the “wearing of the horns” or antlers at Beltane. This god is very popular and particularly beloved in the contemporary Wiccan movement.
Symbols: Green Man masks, the ram-headed serpent, antlers, the oak tree, acorns, oak leaves
Dagda - Irish god known also as “the Dagda,” or “Good God.” He is seen as a primal father god, associated with the Earth and its seasons, as well as having both life-giving and death-dealing functions. His heavily symbolic club could slay and restore warriors to life, indicating an ancient aspect of life, death and regeneration. He is said to mate with Morrigan, the Irish goddess of death, ravens and the battlefield once a year at Samhain, while she straddles a river. Not heavy on intellect, the Dagda is the embodiment of natural life cycles and urges, and the cycles of life and death. He is seen as a humorous figure, indicating that our pagan ancestors appreciated some of the absurdities of sexuality and our natural functions and appeties.
Symbols: Giant “club”
Danu/Anu/Aine - Irish Mother Goddess, mother of the Tuatha de Danann, the mysterious semi-divine race known as “Children of the Goddess.” Ancient goddess of the land, of crops and natural greenery, her followers carried torches in order to bring Danu’s blessings upon the Earth. She is a fertile goddess of agriculture, as well as protector against nightmares and fears. She is closely associated with Anu/Aine, a goddess of similar attributes who is also associated with the phases of the Moon and nurture. Some hills in Ireland are named the “Paps of Danu.” This ties in with Danu’s fertility and nurturing aspects, and her status as ancient Mother Goddess.
Symbols: Flaming, torch, hillsides
Dis/Dispater - Ancient primal father god of the Gauls. Originally a god of the Underworld, he later merged with aspects of Cernunnos to become a fertility god, from whom the Gauls believed they all descended. Dis retained his function as ruler of the dead and of the Underworld, marking him as a god of fertility and rebirth, ruler over the mysteries of the womb and the grave.
Origin: Ancient Gaul (France)
Symbols: Silver three-legged wheel or triskele
Eostre/Ostara - Fertility goddess associated with the spring equinox. Eostre is a deity of Teutonic/Germanic origin associated with conception and birth. She is linked with the fertility of humans, animals and crops as well as the natural vegetation of the Earth. Her totem is the hare, archetypal symbol of fertility and fecundity, and the egg, which is life in potential. She is an Earth and Moon goddess, linked to reproductive cycles and the wealth of the Earth. Her name is given to the festival of Easter which in the Christian calendar commemorates the rebirth of the fallen man-God, as well as to the pagan festival Eostra or Ostara which marks the vernal equinox.
Origin: Northern Europe
Symbols: Hares, eggs, spring flowers, buds
Epona/Rhiannon - Horse goddess, sometimes portrayed as or riding on a mare. Epona is a goddess of travel and movement and represents our own links with the animal kingdom. She is also a deity of speed and change. Originally worshipped by the Gauls, Epona found devotees among the Roman legionnaires who, at the time of the invasion of Gaul, were impressed by Celtic horsemanship and the respect with which horses were treated. Epona is often linked with the Welsh deity Rhiannon, who also has an association with horses but who, in addition is associated with the sea and is a goddess of natural justice and retribution.
Origin: Northern Europe and Wales
Symbols: Horses, springtime, the sea, travel
Lugh - Sun god. Lugh is master of arts and crafts, a god of health and healing. His radiant aspect makes him a god of truth and clarity. He was a much beloved god of the Celtic world, and is today celebrated as patron of youth, virility and health.

Macha - Goddess associated with horses and speed. She is an independent-spirited goddess, quick to take retribution on wrong-doers and sometimes bringer of dreams (nightmare). Associated with lightning, thunder and rain, Macha is good to have on your side if you have been wronged. She is a fierce protector of women in pregnancy and childbirth.
Symbols: Lightning fork, horses
Maeve/Mebh - Goddess of female sexuality, sovereignty and self-determination. Maeve is a lively Irish goddess reputed to bed 30 men a day in order to be sexually satisfied; a positive, if somewhat raunchy, representation of female autonomy.
Morrigan - Raven goddess. Seen as a highly sexualized aspect of the Dark Mother, the Morrigan is goddess of the dark time of year and mates with the Dagda at Samhain. Nowadays, the Morrigan is invoked to bring basic wisdom out of primal chaos and darkness – seen as positive potential – the place of creativity.
Symbols: Ravens, crows, bones

Odin/Woden - Norse/Saxon All-Father. Odin is a god of great knowledge. He possesses the secrets of the runes – a system of magical symbols – which he came by with great suffering. His legend tells that he had to hang upside down from a tree for nine days and nights in order to learn the secrets of the sacred runes, and he is attributed with bringing that knowledge to humankind by way of offering guidance to right living and spiritual growth. He rules over life and receives after death those who have lived with honor. He is a god of magic and oversees the connections between Earth and Sky.
