January Goddess is "Rhiannon" The Myth of Rhiannon
The name Rhiannon is derived from Rigantona which means "great queen". She is the Welsh horse Goddess of the Underworld. She is often depicted riding a white horse & has otherworldly birds in her posession; who have the power of inducing profound and mystical trance.
I also found that Rhiannon, was also considered by Celtics to be the goddess of the moon.
Gallic moon goddess was Diana, * Sumerian version of Inanna, Rome she was Luna, Greek -Selene, Hindu-Tara, & Xochhiquetzal-Aztec. See Gods and Goddesses
Another interesting fact is that "Rhiannon" is a name given to an Amor asteroid (Asteroid 16912)
Rhiannon's asteroid number adds up to 1, a number of leadership and strength, via 19, a number that brings things to an end and is associated mystically with the Moon. (1 + 6 + 9 + 1 + 2 = 19.) Running away is a means by which many women and girls deal with serious problems(as a bad relationship with parents or an abusive partner). 1 + 9 = 10. 10 is a number associated with Persephone, the Greek counterpart of Rhiannon, by Aleister Crowley(in 777).
