From the still green mountains to the deep water's side, through misty grey marshes where shadows lie, so
deep in Her dreaming and with one star awake, the fay queen Morgan moves over the lake.
Her midnight raven rides the purple skies, calling into the darkness where the gateway lies. She
weaves enchantment on the loom of time, and sets destiny reeling by fastened knots of nine.
The seafoam rises along Celtic shore. Her hand plucks you from the Wheel when your days are no
more. Sailing into the west wind where sunlight beguiles, She will bid you welcome to the Eternal Isle.
And look into those eyes that reflect your own. Come to Her without fear and She'll lead you home. She
will soothe away your terror with harp and with song. And you'll feast upon apples of Avalon.
Morgan, or Morrigan, is a deity of ancient Ireland, associated with the Moon, some see her as the equivalent to Hecate.
She was a goddess of war and destiny whose weapons contained a potent magic. She had three main aspects: Badb who sometimes
took the form of a raven and presided over a sacred well of knowledge; as Macha, a powerful sorceress who also could take
the form of a raven and presided over war and fertility; and as Nemain (also Neman and Nemhain) when she presided directly
over the act and art of war. Morrigan was sometimes referred to as "The Morrigan" referring to her triple aspects, and as
such was seen to be a darker form of manifestation of Dana, the mother goddess of the Tuatha de Danaan. Morrigan as a goddess
of psychic vision, hidden knowledge and prophecy has associations with Lunar energies, and in her role as warrior goddess
and patroness of victory and rulership, she has associations both with Mars and with the Sun.
When she is referred to as the Triple Goddess it is in reference to these three aspects: Badb the Crow (maiden), Macha
the Great Queen (mother), and Nemain the Hag (crone). The ideal of Maiden, Mother, Crone is also used generally in goddess
literature and not necessarily always a reference specifically to Morrigan.
The connection between Isis and Morgan is a fascinating area of study, because we are all conscious of the links between
deities from different cultures, the similar mythologies and ways of manifesting. Isis and Morgan is one association that
is particularly enlightening. In Isis Magic, Isidora says about Christine Campbell Thompson, "She further associates Isis
with the "old mysteries of Atlantis," noting that Isis Morgan "has all wisdom and knowledge" and is of infinite aspects."
Isis and Morgan were both thought by these pioneers of who the western mystery traditions to have their roots in Atlantis.
Dion Fortune, Christine Campbell Thomas and Margaret Lumley Brown were extremely gifted psychics and recorded much information
about the connection between various geographic locations in Europe, such as Ireland, Great Britain, the area of Brittany
on the coast of France to name the most commonly mentioned ones, as being places where colonization by people from Atlantis
occurred. They also noted that Atlantean colonization was also conducted in other places, most notably in Egypt, Crete and
Greece. These outposts or colonies became places of refuge in the later periods of Atlantis, people fled to them to escape
the destruction of the Atlantean homeland.

By being sensitive to the cycles of the sea, they learned to align with the origins of life, The Great Womb or Originator
of All Things. The very first beginnings of life on this planet were activated in water. In the sea was the Bright Fertile
Mother who gave birth to life, and the Dark Sterile Mother who brought all living forms back again to Herself. The Moon would
naturally be aligned to the sea, with it's role in the rising and ebb of the tides and its cycles were also seen to be reflected
in the cycles of the bodies of women. All was seen to mirror the role of the Great Goddess of Life and Death. They viewed
the sea as a physical manifestation of that unseen great cosmic power, the universal force that is the origin of all form
and of all life, of which our earth and our existence are part. As Great Mothers of Life and Death, Morgan and Isis embody
not only the concepts of life on this earth, but the force of all life throughout our universe. This sea cult would correspond
to our ideas about veneration of the Great Mother dating far back into the most ancient of times.
The laws of polarity or duality are a strong part of this type of work. In physical terms they are expressed as hot and
cold, day and night, light and dark, male and female, positive and negative. In Egyptian the mythology the Moon is often represented
as masculine. Although the Egyptians are most often identified with the solar associations of their mythologies and religious
themes, the moon held a special place in their culture. The primary moon deities, Khonsu, Osiris, and Thoth were male, rather
than female. This seems contradictory, in light of the way we so strongly associate the moon with the divine feminine archetype
in modern practice. But in their eyes, the moon was the fructifier, in the sense that the male impregnates the female. They
recognized in polarity an expression of balance which was part of the cycle of life and death in the world of nature. Dion
Fortune presents these ideas particularly in two of her magical novels, first in Sea Priestess, and secondly in Moon Magic.
The Priest of the Moon referred to in the Sea Priestess is Osiris.
Anyone who has seen the silver light of the moon playing across the sea at night can easily understand how ancient people
saw this as a reflection in nature of the symbolism of the 'silver cord' of the Shakti. This silvery lunar way is a link between
physical and spiritual states of being. This link is like a bridge, or narrow road of light called the Sutratma, where the
individual can enter the first stages of travel to the world of spirit. This pathway lies from earth to moon to sun to star.
The sun represents the heart. Beyond the heart, the High Priestess of the Tarot is associated with this pathway, and she definitely
has both lunar and water symbolism. Connection to this road starts on the pathway of the Moon, the intuitive knowing and subsequent
lessons and wisdom gained through true psychic vision. As we progress along this silver lunar path, we eventually find that
behind the Moon is the Sun, which is associated with the awakening of the heart to true spiritual compassion. Beyond the Sun
is The Star of Isis, or Sothis, referred to in the tarot as the High Priestess. The full name of this card is High Priestess
of the Silver Star. Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki in her book, 'The Forgotten Mage" quotes Colonel Seymour, "The Symbol of Isis
is the ankh and it symbolizes the forces of life contained within the form of matter. Behind the individualized life form
that in man there is the Great Sea of Life. Isis is the star that rises from the Twilight Sea, the star that itself is a symbol
of the divine spark in man. The Egyptians called it Sothis, we call it Sirius. When that star is unveiled and brightly burning
within the human soul, then conscious touch with the Isis of Nature becomes fully possible."
Morgan and Isis as goddesses of birth, life and death, destiny, war, victory and struggle, prophecy, psychic vision and
clairvoyance are patronesses of the most potent forces. Both have strong associations with water, the moon, the sun and mars.
These goddesses provide keys of access to higher consciousness, and also preside over martial arts, which at first I found
curious, until I connected this with the fact that there are many personal inner battles and periods of intiation that everyone
must face and work through along their personal path.
