What’s in a name?

 

So many things have changed for me in the past five years. I lost my dear husband Sandy almost five years ago (this Christmas) and recently ended my long-term relationship with my beloved Eddie (we ended things in early June). I had a tumultuous  and difficult relationship with Eddie that I believe would not have survived as long as it did had I not used spells (The Love Hunter and Cupid’s Arrow plus a special custom spell that I will discuss at some point) to ease some of the issues present in that relationship.

Magick can do anything you need it to do (energetically that is, I cannot turn you into an immortal vampire) but there are times when you must put away the Book of Shadows and consider real-world implications and make hard decisions. I still love Eddie (I always will) but having a relationship with him is not possible and likely will never be because of the many complex problems he has.

Being true to myself then means knowing when to put a finish on it, which I did.

For the first time in 24 years I am on my own. I decided then to dedicate myself to one of my patron goddesses The Morrigan, as she is a Warrior Queen and that is the energy I most want to generate in my life. My other patron goddess is Green Tara but she is a Buddhist goddess, so I dedicate myself to her in a different way.

The Morrigan is pure Celtic magick all the way and she is the perfect namesake for the direction my magick is going in right now. I am proud to be named after her, using Morrigane (a derivative of her name) with a secret surname (if you email and ask I will tell you) that has to do with The Morrigan’s familiar, the Crow.

I am somwhat terrified of birds actually, so this is new territory for me and it’s very exciting.

This is me, the witch Morrigane, no apologies, no influences other than my own nature and the dark goddess whom I commune with.
