The Nine Morgens of Avalon

By As’t Moon

Avalon is ruled by the Lady of Avalon, a Goddess of love, beauty, power and wisdom, a Lady of Light and Darkness who appears in several forms and under several names. Among the most ancient are those of the Ninefold Sisterhood of the Morgens, whose names were recorded by the Welsh poet Taliesin in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s 12th Century Vita Merlini. The names of these Morgens were Moronoe, Mazoe, Glitonea, Gliten, Cliton, Tyronoe, Thitis, Thetis and Morgen la Fey, all of which appear tio be largely unknown, except to the latter, who was much maligned in Arthurian legend and only recently somewhat redeemed in Marian Zimmer Bradley’s inspired retelling of the tale in The Mists of Avalon.

These Nine Morgen sisters encompass all the qualities of the Goddess on the continua between light and darkness, sweetness and sour, positive and negative, creative and destructive. The Morgens are famous for their learning and knowledge of the seven liberal arts, particularly of astronomy, astrology, mathematics and physic. They are renowned for their healing arts and skill in herbal lore, for their beautiful music and sensuality, for prophecy and the ability to shapeshift, to appear in different places in a moment in time.
