 So Im beginning to wonder who my divine patron is,  I am fairly sure that The god or Goddess will be from the Nordic or Celtic Pantheon

what im wondering is are there any good books in the study of either of these pantheons that someone can steer me towards for my own benefit of knowing more about them

thanks in advance!

oh and Merry meet! im new here.

Welcome aboard! I'm going to agree with a lot that novelog has already stated. I know I certainly didn't expect to end up with who I did, but I would not trade it for the world.

However. I am not a patient type of person, and I did a lot of research on the deities that I seemed interested in, or had some sort of similarities with. Though again, even though I did research, I didn't end up staying with my chosen deities.

If you are looking for books, I'm sure you will get a boat load of suggestions. I can't speak about the Celtic Pantheon, but as far as the Norse go (and again you'll get a lot of suggestions) is Galina Krasskova's book. I also recommend Diana Paxon's book.

WOW what eye openers. i read Exploring the northern tradition in one sitting, and ... wow... a lot of questions but also a lot of Answers, im reading Paxon's book now and thank you for both of these titles, soon i will read the Prose Edda, but im really wanting to now find something dealing with what my research has led me to call "Continental: Heathenry, as im more of germanic stock than Scandinavian, but yeah... im also feeling really really drawn to Idunna, not sure what that means but i still have a lot more "homework" to do.

thanks again for recommending these texts to me

R: Idunna (Norse Goddess)
From reading everyone else's replies, you have a lot of great information to read through:)

If you feel drawn to Idunna, start there:) Give her some offerings and the like, see what comes of it:)

I'm glad the books have helped, and you're very welcome:)
