I have been reflecting on myself for a while now knowing what i am. One named cathrea has also helped me much in the past and still does. I am Elven but also Feline. I guess an Elf that can turn to a black furred leopard is the best i can put it. As an Elf I am wood elf mixed with what some would call dark elf. I get my energy from places such as forests. i have a harder time where I am do to living in an industrial area but am making it. Though as a full name with what i am I am tempted to call myself Tuatha De Dannan. but I am never sure if Tuatha is Elven ect? I may try maybe talking to Danu or The Morrigan. As the Morrigan paid a visit a long while back..
This place is governed by Tuatha de Dannan spirituality. Tara, the admin, presents it here as an elven spirituality, so I guess, that you're on the spot. Try her book "Elven world," it is amazing reading and will most likely very strongly resonate with you.
yes I have been here for a while. I get confused because I feel Tuatha is an Elven type. Some say Sidhe are the Elven Nobles, other say tuatha is a different race entirely so it is VERY confusing. yet i resonated with Danu and Bast mostly (for because I am also a Werecat) I am not on a Celtic pagan path per se but Celtic has resonated the most. I also feel like I am somehow connected to the Morrigan somehow as well. She once called me one of her ravens.. A few years ago..
My perception is that Tuatha are not the same as elves. There are some similarities, but those that I have met (meaning, incarnated here as "otherkin", vs. in pure spirit form) just do not "Feel" the same, energetically speaking. Also, I don't think the terms Sidhe and Tuatha are necessarily interchangeable. I am a sidhe, but I am not Tuatha. My recollection is that the places Under Hill that the Tuatha eventually came to were already populated, and there was a mingling of the peoples.
