Sirona

February 16th, 2008 by sabrina

Sirona is the Gaulish Goddess of the stars, healing, and fertility. She was worshipped from France in the west to Hungary in the east. She is usually depicted holding a snake (a symbol of healing), and some representations have her carrying three eggs (to symbolize fertility) and wearing a crown of stars. Her name means “star” and is also seen as Dirona and Thirona.

    Very enlightening…..I am partial to these Western godesses and one associated with snakes or moons. Do you have any info on Druidesses?

    Hi Lydia! I have a few Druidesses, but not many yet. I’ll do Druantia for you in a couple of days—should be Tuesday if I get back on schedule!
