RHIANNON: Self-Love: Rhiannon is the Welsh lunar goddess of birds and horses, faerie magick, and dreams. She was a faerie queen who fell in love with a king in the Upperworld. She had to leave her world forever when she was falsely accused and imprisoned for murdering and eating her infant son. She suffered greatly from the loss of her child and her seven-year imprisonment where she was forced to live as a horse for punishment. Rhiannon endured it all with patience and dignity until a farmer and his wife were able to break the spell that had hidden her baby. Exonerated, she again took her place in the palace as queen.
Rhiannon is a fertility and love goddess who provides powerful guidance through dreams. She also helps the dying to reach the Underworld without fear, guiding them with her song accompanied by her healing songbirds. The story of Rhiannon teaches us that with truth, patience and love, we can create change, no matter how bleak life seems.
RHIANNON’S MESSAGE: You may have begun to doubt yourself. Or, uncertainty may be a long-running theme in your life. Honor yourself and your needs by spending time to build your confidence. Respect yourself. Love yourself. Do not allow others to diminish your self-worth. The opinions and behaviors of others are not a reflection of who you are. You are good enough.
If you have been a victim of false witness and gossip, stay steadfast. You will be empowered to rise above your circumstances. Breathe in and trust that truth will prevail. Develop strong boundaries. This will help you heal and reclaim your personal power to live in the freedom of being your unique and true self. Discard the mask you wear daily to please others. Know that you are worthy of the good things in life. Trust your heart. It holds innate wisdom beyond the logic of your rational mind and acts as a compass to guide you. Trust in this sacred guidance and know your worth, and that you are always connected to Spirit.

PRIESTESS OF THE TRIPLE MOON: You are ageless and timeless, a spirit in human form.
You are the crescent, full and waxing moon. Mother, maiden, and crone energy unlock mysteries and fuel manifestations. You are in perpetual motion and yet you are a constant force of divine energy. Be open to learning from the three aspects of this Priestess (mother, maiden, crone) as you expand and evolve.
You are protected, living a human experience on Earth, separate from the ethers in many ways, yet perpetually connected. Your essence is divine and sacred, a unique and powerful independent force, and at the same time, you are part of it all. Your stories are ancient and eternal – past, present and future.
Be encouraged to take in the truth of the whole of who you are. Strive to embody the virtues, gifts, wisdom and powers that reside within you. This is your sacred contract; to experience life in a way that causes you to evolve into your best self. Allow each experience to move you through all stages of the triple moon, waxing and waning, flowing, with each stage focused on gratitude.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
