* Cernunnos: meaning ‘The Horned One’ or ‘Horned God’ of Celtic Polytheism.
Cernunnos is the Celtic mythology horned God of nature, life and fertility. Legend states that during Autumn (Samhain), Cernunnos dies when the plants and vegetation of the world prepare for Winter’s sleep. When Spring (Imbolc) arrives, he is then resurrected to impregnate the fertile goddess of land.
Many have speculated that Cernunnos is a representation of Satan because of his horns and his depiction with an erect phallus. The Christian Church has regularly accused Pagans of practicing ‘Devil Worship’ because of the similarities they see between The Horned God and Satan.
At present, Pagan practice still views Cernunnos as the horned god of nature and not a devil.
Thank you for your ongoing support! It means the world to me! ☺︎
