Preparing for a better world
THE RAVEN MORRIGAN
There are many different sides of the Raven Morrigan. She is first thought as the Goddess of Life and Death but despite her fearsome aspects about her, there is another part of the Morrigan that far to many people do not seen, or it is just not written in the books of the Celtic Goddess that deal with life and death as the Morrigan did...
MORRIGAN'S FAIR FACE:
Morrigan had a giving side. Even thought she was arguably the darkest of all the Celtic goddess. but she appears to the legendary Irish hero "Cuchulainn" as a red-haired beauty in a high bronze chariot and offers him her horse and cattle, the bounty of the kingdom, and also her love... Unfortunately Cuchulainn: is a very foolish Irish hero and spurns her offer by saying to Morrigan, that he is to busy with war to be concerned with,"the backside of a woman!"
How the legend went Cuchulainn exhibits a number of outward signs of supernatural powers, including triple-colored hair, seven pupils in each eye, and even digits on each hand and foot. In his battle rage, he goes into a "warp spasm," in which one eye sinks into his head so far that not even a crane could reach it, while the other bulges to the size of a cauldron big enough to boil a calf. His body spins within his skin, his hair stands on end his muscles bulge, and his howl sets the local spirits howling in sympathy. Like all heroes, Loeg, his charioteer; he is reminiscent of krishna's charioteer Arjuna in the Mahabharata. Loeg can make Cauchulainn's chariot invisible.
Cuchlainns archenemy is the Morrigan, a fearsome Goddess whom he offends when he rejects her sexual advances because he is too busy fighting a battle. On one occasion, he mortally wounds her, but is tricked into healing her by his blessing when she assumes the form of a hag with a cow and allows him to drink from its udders. Although he declines Morrigan's offer, it is not out of loyalty to his wife, Emer: he has several lovers in his short life including an faeirie .
His downfall is all the declines of lovers; He tries to end it by straping himself to assstone pillar so that he can remain up right -- a pose whose powerful symbolism to Irish Republism and the Morigan's symoblism is when she transforms into a crow and perchess on his shoulder in the guise of the crow not knowing it is the Goddess Morrigan to show that he is dead. Lugaid dare to approach . As Cuchulainns swaord falls andlsevers Lugaids left hand.
This shows Morrigan also as an omen of death. This demonstrates what the goddess Mor Rigan Means "High Queen", and the Morrigan therefore not only presedes over death but can equally bestow the bounty of the earth in the form of the fruits of the land and it livestock.. Wendy...
