The Goddess Morrigan

The Morrigan is a goddess of battle, strife, and fertility.
One of the Goddess Morrigan's best known characteristics, is that she was a shape-shifter, one of her major forms was an old woman, wrapped in a cape of raven feathers, but she also took the shapes of a crow or banshee
Her role was to not only be a symbol of imminent death, but to also influence the outcome of war. Most often she did this by appearing as a crow flying overhead and would either inspire fear or courage in the hearts of the warriors. In some cases, she is written to have appeared in visions to those who are destined to die in battle by washing their bloody armor.

Self Portrait

The fairy tales featuring the enchanted Mouras are thought to be pre roman, indo-celtic origin, magical maidens who guard castles, caves, bridges, wells, rivers, and treasures. 
She often appears singing and combing her beautiful long hair, golden as gold with a golden comb, and promises to give treasures to whom sets her free by breaking her spell.
According to ancient lore, they are the souls of young maidens who were left guarding treasures that were hidden before other supernatural beings disappeared from the mortal world.
They appear as guardians of the pathways into the earth and are believed to be the builders of the Paleolithic hill forts, The Dolmens and megaliths, They are believed to still live there.

Self Portrait

In Irish mythology, Caer Ibormeith was a daughter of a Prince of the Tuatha De Dannan.
 Every alternate  Samhain she would change into a swan, in which form she would remain for a year before becoming human again the following Samhain.
She eventually married Aengus of the Tuatha de Dannan, but first he had to pick her out, in swan form, from a group of one hundred and fifty other swans.
 Having chosen correctly, he turned into a swan himself and they flew away, singing beautiful music that put all its listeners asleep for three days and nights
