Rhiannon, a figure in English and Welsh literature and earlier Celtic mythology, as well as the great song by Fleetwood Mac. The song lyrics almost suggest more of a spirit than a person, or at least a free spirit. The song, as well as Stevie Nicks, were featured in a couple of episodes of 'American Horror Story: Coven' in 2014; centering around the character Misty Day who looked a bit like the young Stevie Nicks actually.

If you visit this video webpage, it's easy to see that younger horror fans and pagans have discovered the song.....

A small fire crackling away on the patio, the night sky above me, cold winter chill to the air, candles softly glowing and a glass of mead in my hand as I listen to this song and twirl and dance, taking in the elements. :) By the Gods and Goddess' I love this song! Now, back to my crazy dancing...(Wonder what my new neighbours will think when they catch me dancing in my garden at 2.30am? lol!)

Rhiannon.... is often considered to be related to the Gaulish horse goddess Epona. The resemblance is her horse affinity, and her son's, as mare and foal; also a paradoxical way of sitting on her horse in a calm, static way, like a key image of Epona. While this is generally accepted connection among scholars of the Mabinogi and Celtic studies, Ronald Hutton as a general historian, is sceptical.
