The Morrigan, The Seeress - Samhain Series, Part 1
Samhain Series, Part 1
Halloween countdowns are all over the place, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon, so to speak, and provide my lovely readers with a Samhain Series. In case you missed my last post, these articles will all be discussing various topics that are related to Samhain, or the time period leading up to it and directly after. The Veil takes its' time to thin, so of course it doesn't just slam shut on November 1st. One of the most popular Samhain activities is divination, because it's so easy to communicate with the Other Side. As a Morrigan Priestess Initiate, I wanted to start this series off by sharing with you advice about connecting with the Morrigan in her guise as the Seeress. My readings are much more powerful when I request the Morrigans' help, and thought I would share with you the rituals, invocations and exercises I do with Her.
The Morrigan - The Seeress
[[In that incarnation, Macha knew nothing good would come of her husband revealing that she had extraordinary talents, so she made him promise not to tell anyone when he went to the feast at the kings court. After getting inebriated, her husband forgot about his promise and boasted that his wife could run so fast that she would beat the kings' horses, the fastest in the land. The king was a proud, and vengeful man, so he ordered his men to bring Macha to court at once - to prove that she was as fast as her husband said. The reason Macha didn't attend in the first place was because she was going to give birth to twins soon. She went into labor, and the king still insisted she raced. No one - not even her husband - stood up for her, so she raced, won, and gave birth to her twins at the finish line. As she lay dying she cursed the men of Ulster for their ignorance and cowardice, dooming them to suffer the pains of labor when they needed their strength the most. Fast forward some time, a battle was about to begin and the men fell with labor pains. Since they were all doubled over in pain the opposing army easily killed them all.]]
As the Seeress, the Morrigan can help us to peer into the mysteries of the past, present, and future in order to seek our own truths and weave the threads of our own fates. (1)
