Aine: Goddess of the Month, July 2019

GODDESS OF THE MONTH

AINE : MAY 2019

Goddess of Love, Wealth, Sovereignty, and the Summer. Aine is also known as a Faery Queen. Part of a triple Goddess, with her sisters Fenne and Grainne.

 
Correspondences

Attributes
Aine is seen as both a Lunar and Solar deity. Her role as a Moon Goddess governed livestock, crops, and cattle, and in her role as Sun Goddess she could take the form of ‘Lair Derg’, a red mare that no one could outrun, in order to walk among her people so she may offer her aid to their needs.
  
 
Goddess Gossip

Aine was totally the people’s Goddess! She gave much to them and received their love and worship in return. An ancient myth tells the story of how Aine gave the gift of grain to the people of Ireland, by birthing grain itself.

Aine was also associated with water and healing. On the night of the full moon, known as All Heal Night, people were brought there to be healed. If they didn’t recover, then Aine would sing to comfort the dying and help them in their passage to the Otherworld.

Through her many relationships with human men, she is thought to have given birth to a Faerie-Human race, which is why she was also known as the Queen of Faeries! She has been known by other names such as the Lady of the Lake, the Goddess of the Earth and Nature, the Goddess of Luck and Magick, and Leanan Sidhe (“Sweetheart of the Sidhe”).

Aine is also a goddess of luck, magic, earth and nature. Her name means brightness, glow, joy, radiance, splendor and glory! A name totally fit for this Faerie queen !

What I love about Aine

I really like that while being a goddess of love,  Áine is among the most revered and powerful of Irish mythological Goddesses! She is remembered for overcoming adversity and exacting powerful revenge on the man who wronged her! Far too often than not, we view love deities as being fragile, but her source of strength and power is a symbol of hope for survivors of any abuse. Lowkey, this makes her quite an icon!

You can read more about this story here, but a word of caution, T.W: story deals with assault.

Aine calls you to claim your own power and to experience true joy. She offers aid with love, fertility and prosperity. May she brings us the sun's power, life force and the moon's mystery, intuition and regeneration!!!

 
 
Altar Decor
  • Idols or Pictures of Faeries.
  • Her sacred stones, such as pearl, garnet, sunstone & moonstone.
  • Statues or Pictures of the Sun & Moon.
  • An offering of fresh Grain & Water.
  • Meadowsweet, her most beloved herb, Lavender or Orchid are also suitable.
  • Silver, Gold & Red candles.

A simple ritual to invoke the good luck of the Faerie Queen, Aine:

You will need:

  1. Dried hay or cornhusks
  2. Black string
  3. Water or a shovel to put out a fire with
  • Tie the hay or cornhusks into a bundle with the black string, arranging them so that the end of the bundle can be lit as a smudge stick.
  • Light the bundle preferably in your garden or outside in a burn friendly area. Inside your home may be just as suitable if done near a window.
  • Let the smoke rise over the flowers or grass, and up through to the sky , toward the stars, while focusing your intention on the good luck you want to bring in, to specific areas in your life.
  • Watch the smoke on its journey as it blesses everything it touches. The Goddess Aine will see the smoke.
  • Sit quietly. When she is ready, Aine will send a procession of Faeries to dance and play around you, beginning the magick to make your love wish come true.

What better way to start off the New Year than with PLANETS DIRECT!! We have a solid month before anything goes retrograde. This means the cosmos are blessing us with forward motion and want 2021 to start with FULL steam ahead. Looking over the two lunations- the New Moon in Capricorn and the Full Moon in Leo- they both seem as if they’re catapulting us forward into massive change. While the first New Moon has the Sun and Moon in close proximity to transformative Pluto, many of us will be having one last hoorah with...
