Hi to everyone!

This year was the first I celebrated the Summer’ Solstice by honoring the fair Aine… in spite of my interest in Celtic mythology, I never feel as comfortable with Celtic deities as I do with Greek ones. If logic was at use, I should be a fervent Brigit devotee: I was born the first day of her month, I study to become a medical doctor, try of breaking thought as a writer and fancy myself a bit of a craft-woman in my free time. Yet, when I worship Brigit I never feel that special thrill I do when my patron is involved.

This year, I put a special effort in researching Aine so I could properly pay homage to Her… I discovered a strong pull toward Her unlike I had ever felt toward any other of Her pantheon. I burned flowers as offering at my altar and felt Her presence as a deep, musical laughter, passionate and free as the sun-born heat that suddenly burned under my skin.

I became even more fascinated with Her.

 I wonder if someone here would feel comfortable sharing his/her understanding of Her character or experiences about Aine. I did a lot of research but theory can only cover that much. So far I got the feel She was a fiercely passionate Goddess, but that there’s also a loving gentleness about Her.
