The horse is associated with many Celtic deities as an emblem of power, sovereignty, abundance, and guidance. Epona and Macha are Celtic horse Goddesses who watch over the land, protecting its abundance and insuring a good harvest. As protectors of nature, they grant both sovereignty over the land and are the goddesses of the stable, protecting all who work with the horse. As goddesses of maternity, prophecy, and prosperity, they guide and protect mortals on their journeys through life. In most Celtic myths, the horses were either black or white.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
