The Morrigan is a shape-shifting Celtic goddess of War, Fate and Death. She is also called the “washer at the ford”…legend has it that should a warrior see her washing her armor in the stream, he will die that very day.

The Morrighan often appears in the form of a crow or raven or is seen accompanied by a “murder” of them. In the Ulster cycle, she is shown as a cow and a wolf too.

The Morrigan is the symbolic equivalent to Freya of Norse Mythology.
