Description

"Tarot adviser and social activist Weber (Tarot for One) introduces the often paradoxical aspects of the Celtic goddess the Morrigan in this eye-opening guide for beginners. She starts with explaining the complexity of describing a goddess whose identity is shrouded by both Christian influences in Ireland and the unstable nature of the deity herself--even to the point where "Morrigan" might be the title for a collection of divinities rather than an individual. Through myths and personal experiences, Weber explores the Morrigan as a warrior, foreteller of death, faery, reigning sovereign, shape-shifter, and fertility goddess. These facets spark useful discussions of modern misconceptions about the Celtic belief system, such as her careful explanation of the terrifying nature of Celtic faeries or the complicated gender roles of Celtic women. While each chapter has a template for invoking the Morrigan, the final chapter dives deeper into ritual practice, offering several clear options for worship. Weber demonstrates her consistent warnings that the Morrigan is powerful and sometimes unpleasant with mythic and personal examples of the havoc she can bring. This alluring book will intrigue practitioners of Celtic spirituality and those searching for stories of the feminine divine." -- Publishers Weekly Reviewed on 08/23/2019--Publishers Weekly
