THE MORRIGAN - Celtic Goddess of War, Battle, Death, and Witchcraft.
The Morrigan or Mórrígan, also known as Morrígu, is an Irish (Celtic) Goddess associated with battle and destiny, fate, or change. She is seen in the ancient Irish lore and stories to get involved very early on with bringing about major changes, and then with foretelling defeat, death, or victory in battles and wars.
Her name is Mór-Ríoghain in Modern Irish or Mórrígan, and this can be translated as 'Great Queen'. Another possibility is that her name means 'Phantom Queen'. She has a strong connection to the Irish Otherworld, especially through her primary sacred site - Uaimh na gCait (the Cave of the Cats), at Cruachán (Rathcroghan) in modern-day County Roscommon, the heart of Connacht in the West of Ireland.
In her war aspect, she may appear as a crow and is known as the Badbh, or as Nemhain, screaming across the battlefield. She incites warriors to fight and can help bring them victory over their enemies, as she does for the Tuatha Dé Danann in Cath Magh Tuireadh (the Battle of Moytura).
The Mórrígan can be seen to represent Sovereignty, particularly as a guardian of Ireland and her people, as well as the Otherworld and its denizens.
Sometimes, this Irish Goddess is given as a Triad of connected deities, called the three Morrígna; though membership of the grouping varies from manuscript to manuscript. Sometimes the trio is said to be the Badbh, Macha, and Nemhain, and other times we see it as the Badbh, Macha, and Anand, which is given as another name for the Mórrígan (Lebor Gabála Érenn).
She is said to be the wife/partner of the Dagda.
Morrigan is one of the great Goddesses of Ireland and is a multifaceted Goddess. She is one as Morrigan and many, a trinity as The Morrigan or the Morrigu. She is a shapeshifter known for being a Goddess of war and battle, the cycle of life and death, and is also associated with wisdom and prophecy, magick, and the land, among other aspects.
To truly gain a more insightful understanding of who Morrigan is, it is important to understand the Celtic culture of that era. The Celts idolized warfare, and women were warriors up until 697 CE, often fighting in battle or helping the wounded. Protecting their families and their land (viewed as female) was a dominant aspect of the Celts' pride and was reflected in the Morrigan.

🌛 Prepare a place to set your incense cone after it is lit. You should pick a fireproof surface that won't be damaged by heat or direct fire, such as an incense burner specially made for burning incense cones, foil on top of the sand in a large clay or metal container, Anything that's heat-resistant and will hold the cone is a suitable container. Make sure you place the container away from anything flammable, such as curtains, lampshades, or paper.
🌛 Light the smallest end of the incense cone at the tip. You will want to keep the end lit with a flame on it for 30-60 seconds, or until the tip of the cone glows orange *all the way across it* when the flame is extinguished. You want a nice, solid orange glow at the top of the incense cone - once you've established a nice solid orange glow on the top, extinguish the flame by blowing it out, or using a candle snuffer if you prefer. If it is not lit thoroughly before extinguishing the flame, your cone will not burn, it will just go out, so keep it lit with a flame until you achieve that solid orange coal burning.
🌛 After getting the top lit with a strong orange burn and then extinguishing the flame itself, set the incense cone down on your prepared surface or incense cone burner and enjoy!
All incense will produce smoke, but our incense smoke is only pure fragrance, unlike most incense which is made mostly of wood filler. Without wood filler, you get pure fragrance!
