So, I've been studying for a few months now and I feel absolutely lost. Even my tarot readings (which I've done for years) say I'm kinda fumbling around in the dark, and that I need to pick a path and stay on it. My gut is telling me the Celtic direction is the way to go (the Goddess that called me to this being Brigid and all), but I don't know what I need to be doing. I guess this is my big cry for help.

You could try a couple things:

  • read the FAQ, Resource page, and tags, especially “beginners,” to see if you get any ideas on what you might want to do
  • figure out what’s important to you (loved ones, loyalty, honesty, idk), whether or not it’s related to spirituality/religion, because this will give an idea of what you’re actually looking for
  • research different paths and see not only which ones ‘call’ to you but which also seem to have the possibility of meeting your priorities or satisfying your needs; if you need something that focuses a lot on environmentalism, you can look into Druidry, but if poetry and self-expression are important to you, you may be interested in Filidecht

We have plenty of tags and links for various Celtic paths, e.g. “irish polytheism” and “gaelic polytheism,” that you can check out.  Keep in mind that these paths are not interchangeable.  I’m not sure what else to suggest without something more specific to work with.
