Swan Princess

Hello Sunshines, here’s a little mythological and astrological fun!

The Swan Princess

Recently I came across a couple of cute quizzes and wanted to share them. My heritage is rich with Irish ancestry. Though, unfortunately, I have yet to visit Ireland. It’s one of my life passions to visit Ireland, along with other areas of Europe and Japan. So when I stumbled upon these couple of quizzes I wanted to learn a little more about Celtic heritage. I took the quizzes and did some research on the history of the goddesses that were in my results and decided to share my findings and the quizzes with my readers.

I got Aine of Knockaine aka The Fairy Goddess

Celtic Goddess:  Love, Sovereignty, Wealth, and Summer

This Celtic goddess was remembered, especially among women, she brought them, hope in dark times. Though many of her stories are attached to tragedy, she was strong and therefore brought the Celtic women hope as they had to protect their towns, homes, and settlements.

AKA: Matcha (several figures referred to by this name in Irish Folklore) the Match figures in Irish Folklore are often associated with the land, fertility, kingship, war, and horses.

In Irish Áine means, “splendor, joy, and radiance

Animal Symbol: Red Mare

Disguise: Fairy

I got Cerridwen! She’s the keeper of the Cauldron. Known for…

Areas of influence:  The transformative power of magic, wisdom, rebirth and creative inspiration. She is the patron goddess of witches and wizards.

Associated with the: moon, fertility, science, prophecy, and poetry

Alternate Name Spellings: Ceridwen, Cereduin, Keridwen, and Kerridwen

Strengths: She’s wise and Resourceful

I think her key traits I see reflected in myself are; wisdom, poetry, and creative inspiration. 

 

This week’s art piece “The Swan Princess,” was inspired by me stumbling upon these couple of Celtic Goddess Quizzes. It made me think about Celtic astrology and wonder how my Virgo astrology compares to my Celtic Astrology. According to Celtic Tree Astrology, I am the Vine, aka The Equalizer. Since I’m born with the first two weeks of September, I’m considered a Moon Vine.

The Vine: Appears cool on the surface, but emotions tend to run high underneath. They help bring balance to others, however, they need to be careful not to become unbalanced themselves in doing so.

Moon VineShows their emotions easily. They tend to be self-critical, and need to work hard to remember, nobody’s perfect, and that’s okay. They need to work on taking care of themselves and be their own BFF.

Symbolism:  connection, eternity, and diversity

Season: Their personality is considered changeable as they were born during the autumnal equinox.

They are both predictable and unpredictable in nature. They may appear laid back, however, are generally highly restless. They may appear to contradict themselves and appear indecisive. This is because of their ability to see the positive of both sides, making it difficult to choose one thing over another.

However, when it comes to things like art, food, and music, they know exactly what they like and don’t like. They are very aesthetic and can turn drab into fab. They are reserved and can appear cool, but this is because their emotions run high and this drains their energy. They are comfortable with expressing themselves freely, though are selective of who they share their deepest feelings with.

They are genuine and highly supportive of those close to them. They are the peacemakers of the Celtic Zodiac and go out of their way to avoid and resolve conflict. They try hard to make their environment balanced as they crave tranquility and desire fairness.

Character Traits: Charming, Classic, Refined, Elegant, Protective, Intelligent, Caring, Sensitive, Enthusiastic, Passionate

Strengths: Nonjudgmental, Fair, Empathetic, Intuitive, Expressive, Creative, Organized, Attention to Detail

Challenges: Sensitive, Emotional, Indecisiveness, Need for Security and Fulfillment, Finding and keeping balance in their life

Celtic Animal: Swan 

This truly moved me how much I truly related to my Celtic finding, even my husband couldn’t believe how much this could really analyze me. I think the Celtic zodiac does an exquisite job of defining many of my key character traits, strengths, and challenges.

If you decide to explore your Celtic Tree or Celtic Goddess, please share as I’m eager to know your findings and if you felt it described you so accurately or not.
