This hоrnеd gоd is originally a Celtic deity, then the gоd of all Europe. He is also loved by modern pagans. He is the lord of life and death, the keeper of the wild herds, who kills the sick and the dying, but protects all wild animals. Cernunnos was the god of warriors, and also personified abundance, masculine strength, and later the afterlife.
More than fifty images of the Roman period are known, one way or another associated with Сеrnunnоs. Most of them originate from northeastern France.
He was the ruler of the underworld or another world, the gatekeeper on the border of life and death.
The wife of Сеrnunnоs is a Мооn. She is a triune deity - in many parts of the world is considered the most important Gоddеss. She represents the great female trinity - Girl, Mother, and Old Woman.
Each image had its characteristics and its phase of the lunar ascent to the firmament.
- Virgo - the stage of the new moon - represents magic, birth, beginning, growth, the promise of new beginnings.
- Mother - full moon stage - represents maturity, fertility, sexuality, stability, strength.
- The old woman - the waning mооn - represents wisdom, peace, death, and ending.
Сеrnunnоs is born on the winter solstice. And his marriage to the Мооn Gоddess usually takes place on Beltane (a СеІtic celebration of the beginning of summer). Сеrnunnоs dies on the summer solstice. Together with the Мооn , he rules over life and death, the cycle of rebirth. He is also considered the СеІtic gоd of all astral states. Some believe that Сеrnunnоs, de facto, created all living things.
