Celtic Mythology: The Tuatha De Danann/Sidhe: The Tuatha De Danann are known throughout ancient Ireland as the people of the goddess Dana/Danu (also known as mother). It's important to note that throughout history she became known as Brigit, who then got absorbed into Christian beliefs as a saint.

Cerridwen embodies all three lunar aspects of the Goddess, Maiden, Mother and Crone although she is primarily worshipped in her Crone aspect, by and through her Cauldron of Wisdom, Inspiration, Rebirth and Transformation. The cauldron in her story has an intimate association with femininity, together with the cave, the cup and the chalice, and the association of femininity with justice, wisdom and intelligence goes back to very ancient times.
