The Crone of Wisdom

“In Welsh legend, Cerridwen represents the crone, which is the darker aspect of the goddess. She has powers of prophecy and is the keeper of the cauldron of knowledge and inspiration in the Underworld. As typical of Celtic goddesses, she has two children: daughter Crearwy is fair and light, but son Afagddu (also called Morfran) is dark, ugly and malevolent.”

“Cerridwen is known as the keeper of the Cauldron in which knowledge is brewed. She is a goddess of prophecy honored in many Pagan traditions.”
