In Celtic Welsh mythology, Cerridwen is a powerful Underworld Goddess, and the keeper of the cauldron of knowledge, inspiration and rebirth. She rules the realms of death, fertility, regeneration, inspiration, magic, enchantment and knowledge. Cerridwen is a shape shifting Goddess, able to take on various forms. She is known as being a white witch or goddess, and is also associated with herbology and astrology. Cerridwen had two children, a girl named Creidwy who was beautiful and full of light, and an terrifying and malevolent son named Afagddu, or Morfran. They represent the dark and light in the universe. Because her son was so repugnant, Cerridwen wanted to help him. She decided to use her magical powers to brew a potion in her cauldron to make him brilliant and wise. The potion had to brew for one year and a day to reach it’s full potency, adding the required herbs at the appropriate astrological times. Once it was ready, the boy would need to drink exactly three drops of the potion.
the greatest Welsh poet ever. This ritual pursuit of her servant, Gwion Bach, symbolizes the changing of the seasons, nature’s yearly cycle of death and rebirth. Cerridwen represents the need for change; that a transformation is at hand. It is time to examine what circumstances in your life no longer serve you. Something must die so that something new and better can be born. You can tap into her ceaseless energy to plant seeds of change and pursue their growth with your own power.
