Rhiannon - The Meaning

Rhiannon is the Great Goddess, as worshipped by the Welsh. She is an embodiment of life, death and rebirth, for in her realm there is no death without regeneration. Her name derives from Rigantona, which means 'Great Queen.' A shape shifter, she can assume any form she wants; she often appears as a white horse.

She is a muse goddess and is accompanied by three sweetly singing birds who can revive the dead or put the living to sleep.

Rhiannon is a beautiful queen of the night, a reminder of the close balance between death and rebirth. She demands that we honor our instinctual and animal selves as a source of creativity, abundance and order.
