Paperback:The Morrigan, Celtic goddess of magick and might:[2019] Paperback
Author: Weber, Courtney
Author: O'Brien, Lora
Year: [2019]
Description: Includes bibliographical references (pages [209]-221) 'She is warrior, queen, death omen, mother, murderer, lover, spy, conspirator, faery, shape-shifter, healer, and sometimes the living earth itself. A captivating contradiction: a demonic female who both haunts and heals; benevolent in one moment, ghastly the next, and kind the moment after that.' The Morrigan is one of Pagan Ireland's most famous-and notorious-goddesses. Her name translated as 'phantom queen' or 'great queen,' the Morrigan is famous for being a goddess of war, witchcraft and death, protection and retribution. This book also explores her patronage of motherhood, healing, shapeshifting, and the land. Classified among the Sidhe (fairies), the Morrigan dates back at least to Ireland's Iron Age, but she is as modern as she is ancient_ enjoying a growing contemporary and global following. Author Courtney Weber provides a guide for the modern devotee of this complex, mysterious goddess that encompasses practical veneration with modern devotionals, entwined with traditional
