Calypso, the Sea Goddess. Aka Tia Dalma. Title(s): Mystic Voodoo Queen Hoodoo priestess Witch Prophetess . . . For those not familiar with Calypso: "Tia Dalma was a mysterious Caribbean soothsayer. A mystic who wields the power of voodoo-like magic. Before she was known as Tia Dalma, she was the sea goddess Calypso, until the 1st Brethren Court tricked the goddess and imprisoned her into the body of a mortal woman. A woman of power, Tia Dalma resided deep within the bayou swamps of Cuba, in a sprawling wooden shack perched in a treetop by the mouth of the Pantano River. Some believed that judging Tia Dalma by her humble home was a mistake, as she had uncanny powers to foretell the future, to summon up demons, and to look deep into men's souls. She had devoted her powers to help anyone who needed it. So it was to this mysterious and beautiful mystic that Jack Sparrow occasionally turned to for help, who once provided him with his unique compass. Over the years, the imprisoned Calypso assumed the alias of Tia Dalma. It wasn't until around the War Against Piracy that she gained an opportunity for freedom from her human bonds. She resurrected Hector Barbossa and tricked him to retrieve Jack Sparrow from Davy Jones' Locker and summon a 4th meeting of the Brethren. Barbossa took all the Pieces of Eight, the powerful items that had imprisoned Calypso, and then undid the spell that bound her to mortal flesh. Now free, Calypso's wrath became horrible to behold, having discovered Davy Jones' betrayal. The enraged goddess created a massive maelstrom, where a battle raged at the center of it. And it was in that very battle that Davy Jones' heart was pierced and he died." 🗡 Moral of the story: Don't fuck with the Witch.

These two! Whew! My mamas get me through so much that no post, hashtag or paragraph could do them justice! Just know, the water deities are my favorite as a natural Mermaid! Blessings to you if you’ve ever experienced the healing power of Yemoja and her sister Oshun. Love. #mermaids#waterdeities#selflove#healing 🌊✨
When one of my family members separated from her husband (ex), she threw her engagement & wedding rings into the river, in hope for new beginnings, renewal of her own life! Did I mention that she isn't Pagan nor a Witch? (although not a skeptic). This is something our family have done through the generations... throwing coins, and jewellery into rivers, lakes, rock pools, wells, etc. It was said that we had great connections with water nymphs/spirits and creatures. When I discovered Coventina, I knew I just had to attempt a connection with her... it felt more than 'right' in my gut, heart, mind and soul. Just the same as other water deities that I eventually come across or when they come to me. It's almost like finding a new ancestor. It's that fascinating & special to me! I finally got myself a Coventina statue, and I am so glad I did 💕#australianwitch #australianwitchcraft#goddess#coventina#waternymph#witchesofinstagram#witches#witchcraft#witch#goddessstatue#deity#deities#waterdeities#wicca#solitarywitch#witchesofaustralia#imawitch
THE APPEASEMENT OF WATER DEITIES (THE FLAT BRIDGE STORY) "Every part of nature, the river, the ocean, the forest, the trees, caves, mountains, hills, valleys, lightning, thunder, breeze, etc. have a particular energetic force..."
~ . . Ffynnon Aelrhiw sacred well, The misty moor, Rhiw, Llŷn Peninsula, Cymru . . ______ . A remnant of the pilgrim trail linking ancient Celtic pagan and early Christian sacred sites in North Wales, is the well of Ffynnon Aelrhiw, sequestered away on a misty moor at the end of the Llyn Peninsula. Since ancient times, wells fed by springs in remote landscapes of the British Isles were venerated by the ancient peoples, each possessing its own deity who exacted tribute, sometimes even sacrifice. There is archaeological evidence of well-worship dating back to neolithic times. Wells were portals to the underworld, liminal realms in which votive offerings to the mother goddess were made. The early Celts, who lived in the west of the British Isles, worshipped wells such as Ffynnon Aelrhiw. These ancient wells still exist in Celtic Wales, Cornwall and Ireland and evidence of inscriptions, votive offerings and survivals shows the importance of the cult of waters for the Celts, who freely adopted local water cults wherever they came. Some water goddesses in Celtic regions seem to posses pre-Celtic names. The water cult was connected to fertility. Garments, food, and wax were thrown into the waters, and animals were sacrificed. When early Christian missionaries came to Britain in the 6th century, pagan worship was at first tolerated, but later pagan wells were rededicated to Welsh saints whose obscure names and identities have become lost in time. In the 6thc, wells such as Ffynnon Aelrhiw became shrines visited by pilgrims in their thousands, on pilgrimage to Ynys Enlli, a tiny island in the Irish Sea. The sick and the lame traversed 130 miles of desolate hills, moors, forests and seas to find their way to Ynys Enlli, where St Cadfan had founded a Christian community, drawn there by stories of the special peace to be found at the edge of the western world – in the shifting sea currents, on the Isle of Bards. The wells gave pilgrims water to drink, but also healing
