The Dagda is the Good God of the ancient Irish. He is the All Father. He is strong male energy and his gift is abundance. He upholds the call to achieve our talents and skills. And he is now re-entering the modern consciousness.
One of his great symbols is his Cauldron of Plenty: we can open our hearts and minds to receive the bounty of the universe. We can leave behind our blocks, fears and pessimisms. This is the gift he offers us.
The Dagda is also the male spirit of the land. Every Feast of Samhain he mates with the goddess of the Sovereignty of the Land, each standing astride the River Boyne so as to renew the power of the land, the first of desire and life-force.
The Dagda asserts the truths of life and death – and also of rebirth. He has a great club, one end of which deals life, the other end of it deals death.
When we face the Dagda, we cannot evade the imperative truths of our life.
His worship was brought to Ireland by the Tuatha Dé Danaan in the Irish Iron Age when they returned to Ireland seeking once again to establish their homeland there.
And the Dagda also radiates the harmony of life and the rightness of the birth and death patterns of the endlessly repeating seasons. He has a harp, the playing of which turns the seasons in the right order and timing.
