Starry Pillar - Crow Priestess for Crow magick and Prophecy
If you want to peer into the myriad of possibilities to divine the future, to seek the mysteries and the unknown, then the Crow Priestess energy can guide you on Corvid wings through this journey of self discovery.
The Crow Priestess speaks;
"There is no mystery that cannot be viewed
Through the eyes of Crow.
No death goes unseen
In the attributed climax
Of the Morrigu's destiny.
She sees all.
Prophecy is Crow speak.
The dead consumed
The relationship between the Goddess Morrigan and one of her most well-known symbols, the Crow, is a rich complex tapestry that speaks to the dynamic nature of this Goddess herself.
Firstly, the aspect Badb can literally be translated as "Crow", is associated with the Hooded Crow in particular, and she appears to shapeshift into the visage of a Crow to inspire fury into warriors on the battlefield, emboldening them to fight and die in Her name.
The Celts also believed that the physical presence of Crows eating fallen warriors was the consumption of their souls, which were then carried to the Otherworld to be reborn.
A Crow was also said to have been present at the moment of Cu Chulainns death to mark him as still Morrigans favoured warrior, and fulfil the prophecy that she would "guard his death," and fulfills an earlier prophecy where Morrigan predicted (and attempted to warn) Cu Chulainn against arrogant actions that would lead to his downfall. The presence of the Crow is the marking of the end of the prophecy as well as of Cu Chulainns life.
Crow energy is mysterious, tied to Secrets, Prophecy and Death. It is said that Crows perceive time outside of linear limitations, and have knowledge of the Past, Present and Future as a result. Their energy in this capacity, along with the Goddess Morrigans penchant for Prophecy, makes this particular Spell Pillar a powerful tool in divinational and self knowledge rituals.
