Coventina, Goddess of Springs and Wells

Welcome to MFRW's Spring Fever blog hop!

Normally, spring brings to my mind images of pretty colored Easter eggs, white daisies, and nature's revival. Lately, I've been busy writing a paranormal with a heroine who's an Adept witch, descended from Celts. (Book Two in my series)

While researching Celtic myth and magic, I came across Coventina, goddess of wells and springs, associated with abundance, rebirth and divination. She's depicted as a water nymph, naked and reclining on a leaf surrounded by rippling water or in triple form, holding a vessel and pouring water.

The Celts saw springs as magical places alive with water deities and nymphs. A place of magic and mystery. Offerings, as in coins, brooches, rings and pottery were made to the goddess in exchange for wishes, to enhance powers or make restitution.

Now, spring brings to mind bubbling brooks, water nymphs, moss covered rocks and magic.
What do you envision when you think of spring?

Please leave a comment and include your email if you'd like the chance to win a digital copy of The Burning Seal, Book One in my paranormal series. Two random visitors will be chosen. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the blog hop!
