The Morrigan: Celtic Goddess of Magick and Might Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
An illuminating exploration of Ireland's ancient dark goddess - the beloved "phantom queen" of the Celtic world - with practices for modern-day devotees.
The Morrigan is one of Pagan Ireland's most famous - and notorious - goddesses. Her name translated as "phantom queen" or "great queen," the Morrigan is famous for being a goddess of war, witchcraft and death, protection and retribution. This book also explores her patronage of motherhood, healing, shapeshifting, and the land.
Classified among the Sidhe (fairies), the Morrigan dates back at least to Ireland's Iron Age, but she is as modern as she is ancient-enjoying a growing contemporary and global following.
Author Courtney Weber provides a guide for the modern devotee of this complex, mysterious goddess that encompasses practical veneration with modern devotionals, entwined with traditional lore and Irish-Celtic history.

I highly recommend to anyone interested in learning more about the goddess The Morrigan. If you wish to work with her there are some rituals in there you can use to start connecting with her.
Will read again in the near future.

It's also a great reading to understand the ancient Celtic society through their myths, more specific their women. Really recommended
I would say, personally, that anyone new to this goddess' call should understand that a pretty good slice of this book is what's referred to as UPG (unproven personal gnosis). That's not a jab at the author or the others that helped contribute to the book. It's simply the nature of devotion to this goddess. What they found to be true of their experience with Herself may not be anything like yours, so if you don't interact with her in ways described in this book, don't think it's a failing on your part. She just comes to YOU differently, and that's okay.
One thing that did rub me the wrong way was the preaching of Wiccan dogma at the end of the book in the section for spells. While it's not healthy to go around throwing hexes at every last person that looks at you funny, there's not a thing in the world wrong with blasting the ever-lovin' heck out of somebody that deserves it, so don't let that "law of three" silliness stop you if you need to put some jerk in their place. Witchcraft has been used for thousands and thousands of years, up to and including hexes and curses. Wicca was made up in the 50's by Gerald Gardener.
Get ready for a great read, and if you decide to become devoted to her, get ready to know yourself. Perhaps stripping away the unnecessary is what frightens us most when given the opportunity to lose the Farscape and gain our true wild selves. She doesn’t pity fools, but she is gracious and will teach you a lot about yourself and Her ways if you come honestly to her.
A wonderful read.
