Celtic Lore and Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess by Stephanie Woodfield


I was recommended this book but it turned out to be one of those books full of spells and prayers.

The first few chapters have mythology about The Morrigan. Woodfield has answered the question of who makes up the Morrigu triplet as the texts give several different members of the triplicity, but does not say how she comes to her answer.

I gave up on the book when it mentioned Badb’s cauldron. I’ve checked Sacred Texts and none of its texts mention her having a cauldron. Granted, this could be some folklore reference I haven’t heard of, but since the writer is not giving references for that particular fact it’s probably unverifiable personal gnosis.

In other words; this is another book so people don’t have to do the actual work of reading the texts and making spells and prayers of their own which would work better.
