Month of Devotional Thought-The Morrigan: Day 11

11: Talk about Festivals, days, and times sacred to this deity.

We don’t really know what festivals, days, or times were sacred to the Morrigan. Simply because the Celts didn’t write anything down.

Month of Devotional Thought-The Morrigan: Day 10

Today is day 10.

10: what are common Offerings – historical and UPG

We don’t really know what was traditonally given to the Morrigan, though animal sacrifice, and sometimes human sacrifice, was done. We can safely say that animals were sacrificed to her. We might get away with saying that sometimes humans were sacrificed as well but that’s only a educated guess and something that we might be able to get away with. As far as modern offerings that are given to the Morrigan they can be candles, sweets, food, things that we’ve made, incense, and coins.

Month of Devotional Thought-The Morrigan: Day 9

9: What are some Common mistakes about this deity

One of the most common mistakes about this deity is the belief that she’s a dark goddess or a crone goddess. The triple goddess is another mistake about this deity that’s made my modern neo-pagans. She’s three sisters and not a triple goddess. Triple had a different meaning back then and it’s nothing like today.

Dedicating Myself to the Morrigan

Monday night was the Full Moon and I decided to dedicate myself to the Morrigan. I’ve felt the need to do this for a month and I decided to it. It wasn’t an easy decision to make  but I’ve felt someone, a presence, nudge me to do this. I haven’t had any signs just this nudge that pushed me in that direction. I’m not fooling myself when I did this. Morrigan is not a touchy feeling good goddess, she’s a force to reckon with and demands things.

I’ve had someone say that she will shake your foundation until you don’t have a foundation left and have to start over. Oh boy, I get that just from reading her myths. The ritual felt right, like I had done something that I should of done, and so I’m really looking forward to continuing to do this and growing.

Month of Devotional Thought-The Morrigan: Day 8

Discuss Variations on this deity (aspects, regional forms, etc.)

The Morrígan is often described as a trio of individuals, all sisters, called ‘the three Morrígna’.[2][3][4] Although membership of the triad varies, the most common combination in modern sources is Badb, Macha and Nemain.[5] However the primary sources indicate a more likely triad of Badb, Macha and Anand; Anand is also given as another name for the Morrígan.[6] Other accounts name Fea and others.

Danu is also connected to the Morrigan as well. Since the Morrigan is only in Irish mythology then she’s limited only to Ireland. Remember this isn’t like the Greeks or even the Norse. Morrigan, and the other gods of Ireland, are their own thing.

The following names mean the same for this deity.

The Morrígan (“phantom queen”) or Mórrígan (“great queen”), also known as Morrígu, is a figure from Irish mythology. The name is spelled Morríghan or Mór-ríoghain in Modern Irish.

She has no epithets since the Celts didn’t do epithets like the Greeks did.
