God/dess of the Day

The Morrigan

(Pan Celtic) A triple goddess composed of the three Goddesses of war, battle, death & destruction: Badb, Macha, and Neman. At battlefeilds the Morrigan took the form of a crow or raven and flew sheiking overhead, often calling upon the spirits of slain warriors. Celtic war trophies (severed heads) were offered to her as were "the Morrigan's acorn crop".
