Humiliated by King Math, thwarted by her son, forsaken by her brother, Arianrhod retreated to her castle Caer Arianrhod. Here she later drowned when the sea reclaimed the land.
Arianrhod is said to be able to shapeshift into a large Owl, and through the great Owl-eyes, sees even into the darkness of the human subconscious and soul. The Owl symbolizes death and renewal, wisdom, moon magick, and initiations. She is said to move with strength and purpose through the night, her wings of comfort and healing spread to give solace to those who seek her.
In magick – Arianrhod can be invoked to help females find their own feminine power. She can also assist with spirit contact, sex and fertility magick and past life knowledge. She can also be called upon to bless handfasting rites.
Correspondences – wheels, silver, wheat, full moon, blood, geode stones, moonstones.
