Goddess of: Battle, prophecy, fertility, and sovereignty
Usual Image: A shape shifter she appears in many
forms, beautiful maiden, mature woman, ancient hag, crow, bear others.
Relatives: Ernmas (mother,) Cailitin, a Druid Or Delbaeth or Dagda (father,) Anu, Badb, and Macha or Badb The Crow, Nemain the Venomous,
Fea the Hateful. (Sisters or other aspects of her or goddesses she presided over.) Eriu, Fotla, and Banba (other sisters and goddesses of the land, not other aspects of her,) Mechi (Son, father
unknown) who had three hearts, in which were three serpents. The serpents, it was foretold, would destroy Ireland, so MacCecht killed him and burnt the hearts, throwing the ash into the river
Berba, even then the ash of his hearts boiled the waters of the river away and killed all the fish in the river.At her most basic Morrigan was a goddess of battle, who did not take part in battle itself, but instead stirred up strife, then flying over the
battle in the form of a crow picked who would die by casting confusion on them, afterwards feasting on their remains.
Not your warm and affectionate sort of goddess, and yet she was also a goddess of
fertility and sovereignty, without whom the king would be powerless.
Going deeper into Morrigan (or The Morrigan as this may have at some time been a title) we find that she is also a triple goddess, who
along with ether her sisters Badb, and Macha or in some accounts Nemain the Venomous, and Fea the Hateful, play a shifting role in
scores of myths and legends.
What is it that brings this goddess back in so many forms and guises and age after age returns in another form even if this means
mixing aspects that are both grand and horrific?
