The Goddess Cerridwen

I feel a great attraction to Cerridwen. She did whatever she could — what she thought was right — for her child. Of all the Goddesses I've studied so far, the Mother Cerridwen appeals to me the most.

One thing that really strikes me is that Cerridwen encompasses all three aspects of the Goddess: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. You see her grow through her story. I like that. Women today don't stay stagnet. We grow as well.

Her cauldron holds the key to Wisdom, Inspiration, Rebirth and Transformation (http://www.cs.rochester.edu/~schubert/290/cerridwen.html). She has divine knowledge and is known for her creativity (http://www.lunaea.com/goddess/magic/cerridwen.html). I know that I like the creative aspect of her because of my aspiration to be a fiction writer.

Light a black candleCreativity is what I desire.
As I dedicate to you this fire.
Open my mind that I may hear,
and recieve from you without fear.
