GODDESSES OF MYTH: Arduinna

Origin: Celtic

Ardwinna is the goddess of the forests and all the animals that dwell there. Much like Artemis of Greek myth, Ardwinna is also a goddess of the hunt. Her forests supply the meat humanity needs for survival, and in turn she expects respect for the forest lands and the animals within. She demands an offering in exchange for any animal killed within her woods. She is often depicted riding through her forests on the back of a giant wild boar.

MYTHOLOGY MEME ~ [3/8] Legendary Creatures ~ Banshee

The banshee (from Irish: bean sí “woman of the sídhe” or “woman of the fairy mounds”) is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld.

In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die. In Scottish Gaelic mythology, she is known as the bean sìth or bean-nighe and is seen washing the blood stained clothes or armour of those who are about to die. (x)

Dirty thunderstorms

A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume. A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.
