The Morrigan is the most recognized Celtic/Irish Dark Goddess and she walks the boundaries between life and death. She is fiercely protective of her chosen followers, and a harbinger of doom for those who would appose her. The Morrigan is not a Goddess that a witch chooses to have as a patron, but rather the Morrigan chooses you.
If you are unsure if the Morrigan has reached out to you, then you can assume she hasn’t, because the Morrigan is not subtle. Also, do not take following the Morrigan lightly, as she can be a very jealous Goddess, and she doesn’t take rejection well. If you are generally curious about Dark Goddess Magick, then I recommend looking into another book by Stephanie Woodfield: "Dark Goddess Craft".
However, if you are lucky enough to be chosen by the Morrigan, and you are ready to fully embrace her, then this book is an amazing reference full of information about the various aspects of the Morrigan, ceremonies, rituals and other craft work specifically designed to celebrate her.
This book of more than 400 pages starts with a really nice section on Celtic lore to give you context. Then takes you step by step through understanding the Morrigan in each aspect and as a whole. The rituals are well thought out with a lot of intention put into each.
“In this comprehensive, hands-on guide to Celtic Witchcraft, Stephanie Woodfield invites you to explore the Morrigan''s rich history and origins, mythology, and magic. Discover the hidden lessons and spiritual mysteries of the Dark Goddess as you perform guided pathworkings, rituals, and spells compatible with any magical path.
