Portrait of the romantic woman in a summer garden


Goddess of Love and Fertility

“You don’t have to be a mother to give birth. Call on me when you need to harness the energy of life to bring a new project or endeavor into the world.”




Traits Aine Embodies:

  • Fertility
  • Creativity
  • Self-love
  • Abundance
  • Sun and moon energy


 How to call on Aine:

Aine was known as Queen of the Fairy (Fae) and in some myths was credited with giving birth to Merlin – King Arthur’s great magician. Aine was worshipped for her magic over cattle, crops, and men. Known as a protector of women, her female subjects were as fiercely loyal to her as she was to them and routinely prayed to her for fertility, love, abundance, and protection. As Aine was seen as both a Goddess of the Sun and of the Moon, she can best be reached at noon or at the stroke of midnight. Pray to her when you need help bringing a project to fruition or need a reminder that you have within you the power to manifest all that you need.


 Prayer to Aine:

 Aine, Goddess of Love, Fairy Queen,

As day passes into night and night passes into day,

Hear my prayer.

Give me the courage to stay true to my heart

To birth that which I am Called to do

Help me to know my Gift

And share it with the World.

In this I pray,

Thank you, Aine!


 Tribute to Aine:

 As Aine was a protector of crops and cattle, her symbols include onions, wheat, and milk. Set up a small altar with these items as a tribute to her. Better yet, head to a stream at the stroke of noon or midnight and leave these as an offering to the fae, who worshipped and loved her.



  • Ian says:

    I am interested in doing an altar (and love spell) to Aine. The prayer recommended, along with onions , wheat , and milk are much apreasiated . I prefer to employ a mantra and rosary as a medium as well as candles as mediums. Do you have any advice on that one and any thing further for pursuing a novice interest in this Goddess ?
    Blessed Be.

      When working with any Goddess energy, it is best to trust your intuition and do what feels right for your ritual.

  • Aine Coetzee says:

    My name is Ainè, I’m 14 and my family and friends say I’m creative and some what wise but I don’t have a very low self-love so I’m nothing like Àine the goddess
