In this modern world, people are often searching for a deeper meaning, a common belief system or way to worship naturally and with depth.
Druidry is practiced differently by each person, with all ways of practising the correct way and there being no wrong way to be a Druid.
Druids are an open people, who welcome anyone from anywhere to enjoy not only Druidry but all that life has to offer.
So enjoy your modern life with all it offers, like technology and fun pastimes like Australian sports betting sites, but get connected on a deeper level with nature and truth with Druidry.
But there are some simple common threads that most druids agree should be included, and we discuss them below:
New druids are Polytheistic
Druids n the modern world worship more than one deity, and these deities are usually party if one pantheon of gods. For example the most common modern druid gods are from the Celtic pantheon, ether Welsh or Irish.
As a Druid one of the fundamental parts of worship is being open to all and sundry, being willing to help any person that wants to learn and train as a Druid.
Magical spells is not the main focus of Druids, though it is sometimes utilised.
Unlike Wiccans who practice their spell making skills, a Druid never ever has to cast a spell; it is not a requirement at all
like many other religions, maintaining your integrity and being truthful are a large part of Druidry.
Seeking truth for yourself and truth from others can be done through mediation and communion with nature
Nature is a large part of Druidry and many Druids honour nature as part of their practice
The four holy days
There are only four holy days celebrated by the Celts (compared to the 8 the Pagans had), while many modern Druids do celebrate all eight holiday days, these are the basic Celt four to be observed:
Samhain – Summers End is the end of winter, when the gateway to the otherworld is at its thinnest and the dead souls return to mingle with the living
Imbolc – This celebrates the beginning of spring, and is sacred to Goddess Brighid. Celts will leave milk and bread outside for the Goddess Brighid and her cow who will be blessing homes. Celts would also make Brighids crosses or Bride Dolls.
Beltane – This celebrates the beginning of summer, when life is starting anew everywhere and the land and people are fertile. Nine men must light two bonfires with nine sacred woods. Cattle are then passed between the two bonfires to bring blessings for the summer.
Lughnassadh – Started by the God Lugh to celebrate his warrior foster mother Tailtiu, this is the start of the harvest season and is celebrated Olympic game style with most of the celebration themes being harvest related.
Community service is a large part of the Druid belief system, with druids seeking to help as many people and Gods as possible, maintaining awareness of ecological problems and the importance of being balanced in life.
