Being Scottish I have tended toward having my focus on the Celtic Gods and Goddess in my daily rituals but since there wasn’t one for today for the Goddess àinë I did a little digging and came upon this article:
They also had an ancient prayer that is attributed to her that I copied for my own use but will share it here in case there are any other Celtic witches who want to honor her today.
Àinë Celtic Sun Goddess
Hail to thee, thou sun of the seasons,
As thou traversest the skies aloft;
Thy steps are strong on the wing of the heavens,
Thou art the glorious mother of the stars.
Thou liest down in the destructive ocean
Without impairment and without fear;
Thou risest up on the peaceful wave-crest
Like a queenly maiden in bloom.
It’s interesting that there are so many differing accounts for the same Goddess and no one really knows for sure if she was human or immortal. It will be interesting to find more information since my heritage is Scottish and I married a rival clan member lol.
Blessed be and happy new year.
