Aisling

Morpheus, the God of Dreams took on the name Murphy Aisling when he settled in Ireland for a period of time during the Dark Ages. The raven is a symbol of prophecy and death. The Celtic Triskelion and Triquetra are symbols that early Christians saw to represent the triple aspect of God, the father, son and holy spirit. But the symbols themselves predate Christianity and have been attributed to Hekate, the Goddess of Magic, Doorways and Guidance, who often appears as three female representations, Maiden, Mother and Crone. It is Hekate’s prophecy that began Morpheus’ quest. The Aisling family line did not endure past the Great Hunger of 1845. The name Aisling means dream. The Aisling words were translated from the original Latin Visus Voveo Victoria, However many Aislings didn’t agree with these words and thought they should be Visio Voveo Victoria, the distinction being that the first usage would infer sight, clear vision for The Order, whereas the second usage would infer a dream or prophetic vision. This is why the English words are more commonly used, so that the speaker themselves could impart the sentiment they desired. The name Aisling means dream.
