For today’s post I have chosen to do a countdown of the top nine feminine figures connected to Avalon. I feel this will be a good companion piece to my post on seven ways to connect to Avalon! Without further ado, here is my countdown.
Number 9: Guinevere
~This number nine female is one that is only sometimes connected to Avalon. I feel she is an exemplar flower bride figure, and so deserves a spot on this list!
Number 8: Melusine
~Melusine was raised in Avalon after her mother left her father. She was a water faery by blood and origin, and I find her incredibly fascinating. It is especially intriguing that she was a supposed ancestor of so many royals!
Number 7: Branwen
~Branwen was a Goddess who had a tragic story recounted in The Mabinogion and she is often associated with love. Her tragic tale is one that resonated with many.
Number 6: Blodeuwedd
~The story of this flower and owl maiden is from The Mabinogion, and we get to see her learn to claim her own sovereignty.
Number 5: Arianrhod
~This Goddess was supposed to be a virgin, but was betrayed into birthing two sons, one of which would forever have her ire.
Number 4: Cerridwen
~This Goddess is a very important figure in the tale of Taliesin within his origin story. She is his second mother.
Number 3: The Lady of the Lake
~This figure is forever associated with Avalon and the magic held there, no matter what name we call her by!
Number 2: Rhiannon
~The final Goddess of The Mabinogion on this list is a powerful figure of personal power, sovereignty, and keeping your head held high during trying times!
Number 1: Morgan le Fay
~There is no figure more associated with Avalon than Morgana herself. She is the Lady of Avalon, High Priestess, and the Leader of the Ninefold Sisterhood! I feel she is the most Avalonian figure ever!
~I hope you have enjoyed this countdown. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
