Rhiannon


A welsh goddess whose name means divine queen of the fairies. She is the mother to the Demetian hero Pryderi, who inherits the lordship of Dyfed, and wife to Pwyll. She was a strong minded Otherworld woman who chose Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed, as her consort in preference to another man to whom she had already been betrothed. As a widow she later married Manawydan fab Llyr.

Rhiannon is the goddess of movement and change, yet is steadfast and comforts us in times of crisis or loss. She was the lunar goddess of fertility and rebirth, transformation, wisdom and magic and was worshipped under the moonlight.
