Danu is honoured under various names from eastern Europe to Ireland (such as Anu, Ana, or Dana) and is even known in India. However, in the Irish/Celtic pantheon she holds a special spot of reverence that is unique amongst all of the Goddesses and Gods. She is the earth-mother goddess or female principle of the Tuatha Dé Danann (Tribe of the Gods of Danu). Danu is often associated with fertility, wisdom, and wind, and she was believed to have suckled the gods.
Danu is typically associated with rivers and flowing water, and she is the patron Goddess for people who work near the water, such as fishermen and sailors. The rivers Danube, Dniestr, Dniepr, and Don all receive their names from her. A black cauldron filled with water is a symbol of Danu, and a lot of art shows her holding a cauldron filled with water.
Danu is a triple goddess in her own right, being mother, maiden and Crone in all one. However, in the form of Anu she is often also associated with the Morrigan, and thought to be one of the three aspects of the Dark Goddess as well. Additionally, as Anu, the Goddess is also associated with the element of Earth, and is the Goddess of agriculture, and many earth-based activities.
The colors green, blue, black, and silver are often associated with Danu. She is also the mother of the fae and is a great patron for anyone doing Fairy Magick. Being associated with both Earth and Water, the two female elements, and being the goddess of fertility, Danu is the ultimate representation of female energy and is a true Earth-mother representation.
