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.

--Ruth Barrett--

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.
