Rhiannon means Divine Queen and is the incarnation of the land.  Rhiannon in this role is wed to the King of the Land who in Celtic Culture is wed to the soil and thus forms a stewardship of the land, the Kings of Scots ruled the people of Scotland and not the land.  This marriage to the land was symbolised by the future king standing on sacred rock and swearing a vow.  The Stone of Destiny was used for this purpose and as such is seen as a symbol of Scotland.

Marriage to the land meant that the land was not a possession to be treated in any matter but a living dynamic part of life to be cherished, loved and protected.

  1. I have Rhiannon conjunct my ascendant and I very much love nature and the out of doors. A good friend of mine has it conjunct his Venus/Eros conjunction, and the same can be said of him. Another friend has it trine my Venus and we enjoy walking in the woods together. Now I know the origin of the Fleetwood Mac song!
