The Morrigan
The Morrigan is famously known as a goddess of war, but she also embodies the principles of sovereignty as a goddess of the Land itself. I like to go even further and see her as a goddess of SELF-sovereignty. Her power is raw, undaunted, stern; and yet merciful, true, overflowing with tough love. If you ask for her help, she will warn you: "It will not be pretty".

If you let her, she will force you, she will rip your guts open so you can see what really lurks within yourself. She will hack at every single idea you've ever had about yourself to make you question them. She will hang you from a tree and let the crows peck at your open wounds. She will cut away the needless bits, the excess baggage, the useless customs and beliefs. It will hurt. Like hell.

But then, she'll make you whole again. And something will have changed within yourself. You'll have seen the darker, truest parts of who you are. Something will have changed within you, then, if you can accept them. You'll have more knowledge of yourself, and thus more power over yourself, who you are, who you want to be. You'll be a better Sovereign of your own Inner Kingdom.
Eriu, Goddess of the Land.
She’s been called many names in her long Life.

She’s been called Ériu, Banba and Fodhla.
She’s been called Inis Fáil, the isle of Destiny.
She’s been called Scotia, Hybernia, Éire, Ireland.

The lives of Gods and men danced within Her.
The power of the Caesars never touched Her.
The wisdom of the World was salvaged in Her.

Then, for many dark, cruel, long centuries,
she suffered for the greed of Norse Men and Normans,
and was ravaged, invaded, plundered, abused and raped.
Her liberation called for yet more needless spilling of blood.

And yet, today, strong she stands. Resilient and proud, she refuses to give in. A thriving, pulsing Spirit keeps the ancient ways of her people alive, no matter what the World decides to throw at Her. No matter how obscure the Times, in her remains a playful, gentle jolliness, a Light that resists to be snuffed out. Within Her, even the most crippling Darkness can still give way to intense, soul-changing beauty.

She’s a survivor.
A Leaf in the Wind
For the one who has been initiated into the Mysteries; either by higher powers or one's own doing, that is to say, a Wizard, there is nothing in the Universe quite as special as meeting a kindred spirit. A brother, that is kept awake by the same questions, who understands the ancient power of Making, who lets the celestial bodies dictate the pulsings of his energy. For what greater proof of the existence of magic can there be, than finding it reflected back at you from another person's soul?

I wander and I wonder, not necessarily in that order. Travelustrator on a Life-long quest for a great perhaps.

Hi Nessie, thanks a lot for your very kind words. I have the project a bit abandoned, but you're making me want to resume it and I might just do that. Stay tuned :)
