The Morrigan (or also Morrigu) was the ancient Celtic Goddess of War, Fate and Death. In addition to being the patroness of revenge, night, magic, prophecy, priestesses and witches, she also presided over rivers, lakes and fresh water.
Being one of the "Tuatha De Danaan" (People of the Goddess Danu), she is also known as "Washer at the Ford", who is washing the clothes of the men that are to die in battle – thus chosing the lives of those who shall not return home from the upcoming conflict.
Once not only a goddess of Battle but of Strife and Fertility as well, her role appears in a somewhat different light to modern Pagans. However, the Morrigan still remains an appropriate deity for the independent and strong individuals.
This is my very first submission here. Sooo... I hope you will like it!
