Goddesses and Gods – Greek Titans – Goddesses – Themis, Tethys/ God Oceanus

The reason for two Goddesses today is this will complete the first generation of Greek Titans.

Greek Titan – Themis, goddess of divine law and order

Themis was a Titan goddess of divine law, order and costums. She was a daughter of Uranus and Gaea and was a messenger of the very first rules of conduct, established by the elder gods. Her place was at the Oracle of Delphi where she was one of the early prophets, second more precisely, according to Aeschylus. In a role of divine voice (themistes), she first instructed the primal laws of justice and morality to mankind. Some of these were precepts of piety, rules of hospitality, good governance, conduct of assembly and various offerings to gods. Themis was also known to be a counsellor of Zeus, advising the king of gods on the conduct of men. Alongside her daughter Dike(justice), she would have reported to Zeus, if the primal laws had been breached by anyone. She is also said to had, on Zeus` orders, gathered all the gods to the assembly on Olympus during Trojan war.

Prophecies of Themis

In her time, Themis proclaimed some of the most famous prophecies such as the fall of theTitans where she prophesied that the war will not be won by brute strength and violence but by respecting the counsels of craft and gaining the upper hand in war. This probably meant that Olympians gained the advantage when Zeus released the Cyclopes and Hekatoncheries from Tartarus. The Cyclopes built them the weapons while Hekatoncheries were at the scene itself, bombarding the titans with rocks. She also prophesied the death of Giants who would attempt to dethrone Zeus and the world after the flood where she, later, instructed Deucalion, a son of Prometheus, and Pyrrha, a daughter of Epimetheus, to repopulate the world with throwing “bones” of their “mother” behind their shoulders. According to some authors she also warned Zeus about marrying Tethis but some other authors are crediting Prometheus with this particular prophecy. According to Aeschylus` Prometheus Bound, Themis is credited to be the mother of Prometheus so their shared visions may not be so far-fetched.

Horae and Moirai

Themis was not only a counsellor of Zeus but was one of his earliest brides and together they gave birth to Hours and Fates who together represented the establishment of natural law and order. Despite being one of the favourites of Zeus, she was, according to Ovid`s Fasti, overlooked by Cronus and the titans and was relegated to the lowest place in pecking order.

Horae (seasons or hours)

– First Generation

Auxo or Auxesia – goddess of spring growth who increased growth and prosperity of fields.

Carpo or Karpo – goddess of the fruits of the earth. She represented Autumn and was worshiped alongside Auxo by ancient Greeks.

Thallo – goddess of spring buds and shots. She was representing summer and plant raising.

– Second Generation

Dike or Dice – goddess of fair judgements, based on rules, costums and moral order. She was the enemy of all falsehood and a protectress of wise administration of justice.

Eirene or Irene – goddess of peace and seasons of the spring. She is identified as Hora Thallo in Hesiod`s Theogony.

Eunomia – goddess of order and law. She was representing internal stability in society. The Greeks also identified her as a spring goddess of green pastures.

Moirai (fates)

Atropos or Aisa – goddess of inevitable. She was the oldest of three fates and determined the mechanism of death for all mortals.

Clotho – goddess of spinning the thread of lives. She had control over the decision of who was born and also decided whether the lives of mortals or gods were to be saved or to extinguish.

Lachesis – goddess of destiny. She was measuring life spun which was spinning by Clotho and therefore determined a life thread of all mortals and decided how much lifetime was to be allowed for each being.

Other myths

Themis is also said to had helped Leto, along with her sisters Theia and Rhea, with a birth of Apollo and later suckled him with heavenly nectar and ambrosia. According to Ovid`s Metamorphoses, Themis was the one who released Sphinx to Thebes to annoy travellers with its riddles. And once Oedipus solved the riddle and destroyed Sphinx, Themis was heartbroken and angered. Without delay she sent another savage beast, this time to ravage the city.

Greek Titan – Oceanus, god of river Okeanos

Oceanus (Okeanos, Ocean) was a Titan god of enormous river called Okeanos which was believed to be encircling the world and was connecting this world to other realms, such as heavenly realms from which the gods came and underworld where the souls of the dead lived. He was a personification of all salt water of the world, more precisely Mediterranean SeaAtlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean which were the most familiar to ancient Greeks at the time, and all the fresh water that includes rivers, lakes, streams and rain. Oceanus was originally the source of all the water. However, when geography became more known and accurate to the Greeks, he was placed to represent more stranger and unknown waters of Atlantic and Indian Ocean while Mediterranean Sea was ruled by a younger god Poseidon and rivers, fountains, streams and rain waters were controlled by the titan’s sons and daughters. Oceanus was, according to most authors, a first descendant of Uranus and Gaea and was married to his sister Tethys. Together they gave birth to three thousand Potamoi or river gods and Oceanids, known as nymphs of rivers, lakes, streams, fountains and wells which never ran dry. But according to Ovid, Oceanus is said to be one of the primeval deities, born alongside Gaea.

Not interested in power and warfare

Unlike his other brothers, Oceanus, according to Apollodorus, never participated in plotting nor castration of his father Uranus. He was also not interested and never joined his brothers in the war against younger Olympian gods. Unlike Prometheus and Epimetheus, who had sided with the Olympians during the war, he rather withdrew himself from the conflict. And, because of it, he was never imprisoned in Tartarus by Zeus when the war, where the Titans had lost, was over. Oceanus is also said, according to Homer, to had never participated at the Assembly of the Gods during the Trojan war where Zeus requested for all gods to attend.

Famous islands and shores of Oceanus

Most known island was the Elysian fields or island of the blessed. It was a place where the souls of extraordinary mortals went and it was believed to be along the shore of deep swirling Oceanus somewhere in the underworld. Another known island was the Sarpedon which was a home of the Gorgons, surrounded by Oceanus. It was near Erythia and the Garden of Hesperides. Erythia was the red sunset isle, home of the giant Geryon, where Heracles went in one of his labors and had to acquire the giant’s cattle. Garden of Hesperides, controlled by Hera, was known as Hesperia or the evening isle in far west of the world.

In the northern stream of Oceanus, beyond northern mountains, was the land of Hyperboreans. They were a blessed race, sacred to Apollo who came to live there during winter time. It is said that people there lived a long life, free of wars and diseases in the realm of eternal spring. In the southern shores of Oceanus, from the farthest east to the farthest west, was the land of Ethiopians.

Greek Titan – Tethys, goddess of fresh water

Tethys was a Titan goddess of all the fresh water on earth. She was one of six daughters of Uranus and Gaea. She appropriately married Oceanus (personification of all the salt water on earth) and, according to Hesiod, they gave birth to three thousand Potamoi or river gods and Oceanids, known as nymphs of seas, rivers, lakes, streams, fountains, and marshes. She was also believed to be nursing and feeding her children by drawing water from Oceanus through subterranean channels and also taking care for all creatures living in the waters such as fish, seals and dolphins. During the war between the Titans and younger Olympian gods Tethys was believed to had been raising Hera as her step-child. According to Claudian she is also said to had been taking care of Helios and Selene. In art she is often depicted with a small pair of wings just above her eyebrows which probably presents her not only being a mother of rivers, streams and other supplies of fresh water but also as a mother of Nephelai (rain-clouds) and Aurai (breeze) who are associated with Sky deities.

Deception of Zeus

Tethys is not directly involved in this myth but is just used as an excuse by Hera. She appears in the Homer’s epic of Trojan war where Hera deceived Zeus in order for other gods to involve in the battlefield, despite the direct order of Zeus not to involve. Hera lied to Zeus by telling him that she was going to visit Tethys and Oceanus. Instead she went to Aphrodite who helped her to beauty herself and prepare a seduction plan. Hera then seduced Zeus and made love with him until exhaustion which gave a window of opportunity for other gods to interfere in the battlefield and consequently for the Greeks to regain an upper hand in the war.

Oceanids and Potamoi

As mentioned above Tethys was a mother of three thousand Potamoi or river gods and three thousand Oceanids or water nymphs. Here is a list of the most known Oceanids and Potamoi:

Sacrificial altar among 13,000 relics unearthed at Sanxingdui archaeological site in China

A turtleshell-shaped box and a sacrificial altar are among a treasure trove of 13,000 relics dating back over 3,000 years discovered by archaeologists in southwest China.

The relics – many made of gold, bronze and jade – were unearthed in six sacrificial pits at the Sanxingdui archaeological site, near Chengdu, Chinese state media reported Monday, June 14, 2022.

Historians know relatively little about the Sanxingdui culture, which left behind no written records or human remains, though many believe it to be part of the ancient kingdom of Shu. It’s hoped the latest finds will shed light on the kingdom, which ruled in the western Sichuan basin along the upper stream of the Yangtze River until it was conquered in 316 BC.

A joint team of archaeologists from Sichuan Provincial Cultural Relics and Archaeology Research Institute, Peking University, Sichuan University and other research institutions have been excavating the six pits at the site since 2020.

In the most recent excavation, archeologists found 3,155 relatively intact relics, including more than 2,000 bronze wares and statues, China’s state news agency Xinhua reported.

New finds from the past

Researchers described a turtleshell-shaped box made of bronze and jade as among their more intriguing finds, saying it was the first time they had uncovered such an item.

“It would not be an exaggeration to say that the vessel is one of a kind, given its distinctive shape, fine craftsmanship and ingenious design. Although we do not know what this vessel was used for, we can assume that ancient people treasured it,” Li Haichao, a professor at Sichuan University, told Xinhua.

A bronze altar nearly 3-feet tall (0.9 meters) was also found in one of the pits, where people of the click here to read the rest of this article

Some Humor for Your Day

Good Day WOTC Family and Friends Here is a Thought for Today

Happy whimsical Wednesday everyone! I am sorry today’s posts are going up later than usual, but I was taking advantage of the cool morning temperatures to mow my backyard with a regular mower. We live on almost a 1/4 acer of land with a very small 4 room house that sits towards the front of it so needless to say it took me 2 days to get it all finish being the first cut I did this year. The very first cut we have someone come and do it because I would collapse if I tried mowing foot high grass with a regular lawn mower, but it is done now. A little bit more spring clean-up tomorrow morning and the yard is set for upkeep this summer. I cannot find the pictures I took to share of our beautiful yard, oh well lol. Anyway the posts are up now and the tomorrow posts will be done after I take a much-needed shower.

Remember to try to leave a patch of blooming clovers or something that flowers to grow wild in your yard for our Bee friends to have a place to eat and rest as they spread the pollen from almost every plant and flower that grows near you. Without bees we would not have the delicious vegetables and fruit we put on our tables.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 5 AM to 11 AM EDT today (2 AM to 8 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Cancer to Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s important to remember that patience is the antidote to anger, especially on a day like today. Sports events, romantic relationships and parents’ relationships with their kids are classic areas where it’s easy to lose it. Be patient.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Despite the chaos and increased activity on the home front, nevertheless, take a deep breath and think of the best way to handle dealing with family, relatives and whatever is going on at home. Be calm because you need yourself as a resource.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Avoid offensive arguments with others. (You might be coming on too strong; or you might attract someone who is coming on too strong to you.) Either way, no one is happy with this. Deflect your energy elsewhere. Find a bright, shiny object.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

By nature, you’re thrifty. This might be why you are upset about financial matters today or possibly, how something is shared or divided, or perhaps, it’s about something that you own? Take a deep breath to get perspective on this. How can you reach your objective?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Here’s the deal: fiery Mars in your sign makes you aggressive. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, there’s a lot of energy happening in Taurus, which is at odds with Mars. This is why dealings with parents, bosses and the police are challenging. Keep your cool.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have a lot of opinions right now. Obviously, it’s okay to have opinions. What’s not okay is if you want to coerce others into agreeing with your ideas. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him froth a latte.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Challenging situations with your kids, with friends and clubs are likely today. In fact, so many people are at odds with each other today, it’s as if there were angry spores in the air. Pull in your reins. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a poor day to insist on getting your way with bosses, parents, teachers and the police. If you make an attempt to do this, everything will dissolve into a nasty battle of egos. Instead, go somewhere else. Do something different. Enjoy the scenery.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Steer clear of controversial subjects today (although this will be challenging for you) because you will gain nothing. In fact, you may get into a nasty argument with someone. And you need that like a fish needs a bicycle. In fact, you can make great headway at work today if you maintain a positive attitude. (You like positive!)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Power struggles about inheritances, shared property, loans, mortgages or insurance issues could be nasty today. If possible, table these discussions for another day when things are not so sensitive and the situation is less volatile. Timing is everything. You gotta know when to hold and when to fold.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a challenging day for you because you might find yourself at odds with partners and close friends. (Almost, right off the bat.) Hey, you don’t need this and neither do they. Agree to sit this one out simply because this is a poor day to reach an agreement about anything. Just coast.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Avoid squabbles with coworkers today. Likewise, avoid fights with someone about your pet or your health. These are all things you can talk about another day when the situation is less volatile. Instead, do something to please yourself. Lighten up.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Priscilla Presley (1945) shares your birthday today. You are curious, clever and interested in everything. You’re also interested in people, which is why you like to be up on whatever is happening around you. Take inventory of your life this year. It’s time to let go of people, places and things that have held you back.

Click here for today’s or anyone’s birthday horoscope from thehoroscope.co

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you might have to temper all this exuberance you might be feeling because it is still a work day and you might have to act like a professional.

So leave your youthful enthusiasm at home and you will surely retrieve it at night. Why not plan a night out for good fun with your friends, with your partner or with someone you are interested in.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you will benefit from a great intuition and a great spirit in making the right choice. If there are important things for you to decide today, be sure you will be able to see all the sides involved and you will be able to decide in the best interest of everyone.

Other than that, you might be a bit blocked by some work delays but nothing of serious importance.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are charming and communicative as usually but today you will notice that everyone seems to be attracted to you. Use this great mood of yours to interact with people, share your ideas and beliefs with them and try to be as convincing as possible when needed.

The only word of caution is to not transform this magnetism of yours into manipulation.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you will feel you are so creative and inspired that you will even let everything at work and do something in this direction.

This is going to be quite a bold move, even for yourself, so make sure you are actually doing the right thing. At least try compromising, do something useful in the morning and then have the whole afternoon to yourself.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This day will favor all activities that involve authoritative positions and prestige. This means that if you are in such position you will manage to get everyone to do what you are asking them to and even look up to you.

If you are not in such position be sure you will have a positive and lucrative meeting with an executive that will prove to be very helpful.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

There are many energies going on for you and most of them relate to your family life. So turn your focus on this direction. There might be things you’ve wanted to do and recently postponed, so why not act on them, especially if they involve going places with your partner or the whole family reuniting.

You might not feel in the best shape for that but it will prove useful.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you are going to be the most sociable person and you will probably have to establish lots and lots of meetings. This might make you feel a bit overwhelmed but gather up your resources because everything will run smoothly.

Plus, it will give you a chance to clear off the schedule in the next days. Just try not to gossip with people you don’t really trust.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Quite an auspicious day ahead for you, meaning there will be enough chances for you to make your position public.

Some people are looking high to you while others are just gossiping around the corner. It’s the usual drama around you that you are enjoying so much. So don’t worry that much over what is unraveling around you and just go forward with your plans.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you might feel like your huge free spirit is being caged in responsibilities and like there is no way out. Unfortunately this kind of attitude will only get you to postpone and avoid even more your responsibilities for no good.

Why not deal with everything you have to do as soon as possible and then have the rest of the day just for you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This day it seems that reality will bite off from you and that certain things you’ve either avoided or postponed in the past will get to you and it will be kind of hard to deal with everything at a time.

So prepare emergency strategies in the areas you feel guilty and also amends to those people you will have to convince of your most honest intentions.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Things at work might get a little heated and you might need to be all calm and explanatory in order to keep everyone from bursting with anger.

It might not be your direct responsibility but you definitely find yourself in the middle of a situation that needs to be fixed. Other than that, you might have a personal moment of clarity later in the afternoon.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This day you will be somewhat filled with altruism and a feeling of gratitude for the person that you’ve become and this will get you to ask yourself if there are things you can do to help others.

This means that you will seize almost any opportunity to do something for those around you, from the smallest job to the more significant actions.

Spell to Contact Your Spirit Guide

Items needed:

Altar Candle

Day candle (whichever color for the day you be will doing your spell)
(Monday-white Tuesday-red Wednesday-purple Thursday-blue Friday-green Saturday-black Sunday-yellow)

Offertory Candles – 3 Violet candles, 3 White candles

Tools: Athame, Exacto Knife, or needle to inscribe candles

Props: Crystal ball or clear glass of water

Incense: anise, cardamon, and coriander

Oil: jasmine, lemon, rose, and sandalwood

Bathing Herbs: cinnamon, frankincense, myrrh, and sandalwood

Timing: Best done during the Mercury hour of the day, although any hour should work. Any moon phase is appropriate.

Breathe deeply and build a ball of protective light around you. While soaking in your ritual bath, meditate on the whole ritual: the steps you will take and what you wish to say to your spirit guide when you make contact.


Enter the circle in the Hour of Mercury. Light the incense. With the oil, dress the Altar Candle and the Day Candle while concentrating on the purpose of the ritual. Light your Altar candle and your Day candle and state your intent:

“I am here to make contact with my Spirit Guide, and to acknowledge him or her”

With your Athame, inscribe Violet Candle #1 with the word “Spirit”. Dress it with oil.
Light the Violet candle #1, direct your energies into it, and say:

“Here do I light the first Lamp of Spirit. May its light reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May it make contact with that World of Spirit into which we will eventually enter”

Take your censer or incense wand and swing in around censing the whole area around the altar, while rhythmically repeating the word “Merge” and building up energy to focus.

Replace the censer and pick up Violet candle #2. Inscribe it with the word “Spirit” and dress it with the oil. Put it back on the altar, light it, direct your energy into it, and say:

“Here do I light the second Lamp of Spirit. May it’s light also reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May it make contact with that World of Spirit and help spread the light, illuminating the passageway between our worlds.”

Again, take the censer or incense wand and cense the entire area around the altar while chanting the word “Merge” Build up your energy to focus. Take violet candle #3, inscribe with the word “Spirit”, dress with oil, charge with your energy, light it and say:

“Here do I light the third Lamp of Spirit.
May its light also reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May the light from these three lamps blend and grow, dispelling all darkness and lighting the way that my Spirit Guide may come to me and speak with me here today.”

Inscribe the 3 white candles with the word “Truth” and anoint each candle with oil. Light the 3 white candles in order of 1, 2, 3, and say:

“Here do I build Truth. As these candles burn throughout this ritual, their power generates nothing but truth in all that transpires between this world and the next. Through these candles there is truth in all communications that come to me”.

Again, cense the entire altar area while chanting the word “Merge”.

Replace the censer and continue chanting. Sit comfortably while chanting, and gaze into the crystal ball, or the clear glass of water. Continue chanting until you feel it is right to let the chant taper off. Continue to quietly look into the crystal ball or glass, not trying to picture anything. Keep your mind blank, so whatever comes will appear will come in it’s own free will. Gaze into the center of the crystal, there is no need to try not to blink. Look into the crystal and blink naturally. Try not to notice anything in your peripheral vision, just the center of the crystal. Eventually a face or figure will appear. This may take a long time, or it may appear almost immediately. If it doesn’t come at all within approximately 20 minutes, abandon this attempt, extinguish the candles in the order in which they were lit, leave the altar set up, and try this ritual again in three days. You should have results within a month at most.

When a figure does appear, ask if he/she is your Spirit Guide. You will hear an answer. You may not hear it out loud, or even see the figures lips move, but you will be aware of the answer. This is how most of your conversation will proceed. You will ask your questions mentally (or out loud) and the answers will be clear inside your mind.

Ask if you have more than one spirit guide. If yes, ask them to appear also. You may ask anything you wish to know, but it is suggested to establish a connection first where your Spirit Guide may appear to you at any time, or at specific times, so that you can converse with other spirits through him/her. When you have finished speaking with your Guide, thank him/her, then sit for a moment with your eyes closed, meditating on all that you have learned. Extinguish the candles in reverse order to clear the circle.

Creativity and Imagination

Magpies are attracted to unique objects, particularly if these objects are shiny. This resonates very well with your creative brain.

If you are an artist or a lover of literature, you will realize that you look at things from a different perspective from most people.

Witchcraft and Magic

In the olden days in Western cultures, witches wore long collared black dresses that somewhat resembles the magpie’s pied plumage.

It is also believed that witches used magpies to communicate with the dark creatures of the forest. This association makes people relate this bird to magic and the dark arts of wizardry.

The Unknowable, The God Odin

Empty is the end, empty is the beginning. Like the phoenix from the ashes it rises – from what we call fate. The surrender of control is the supreme challenge for a spiritual warrior. If you drag the blank rune, take courage. Trust that the universe will make self change in your ongoing life progress.

Witch’s Rune

From wizardforest.com


This rune is also called Marriage, Relationship. But it doesn’t mean that this rune predicts wedding (although in some cases it is possible). More often the fallen rune Ring means an agreement, relation between people, friends or partners. It may concern work, contractual obligations, and concluded agreements.

Key words: marriage, agreement, exchange, universe, partnership, teamwork, agreement of the parties.

Sabbat: Wheel of the Year

Element: Aether (spirit)


From symbolsage.com


Amancholl has the phonetic value of Ae, and corresponds to the witch hazel—sometimes pine. However, it doesn’t refer to the common witch hazel in North America, but to the witch elm, whose British name is witch hazel. It’s also given various names such as Xi, Mor, and Peine. In Celtic lore, the elm is associated with the underworld, though modern interpretation links it to cleansing and purification.

Hexagram Twenty – Three/23

Po / Splitting Apart

The weight of the Mountain presses down upon a weak foundation of Earth:
The Superior Person will use this time of oppression to attend to the needs of those less fortunate.

Any action would be ill-timed.
Stand fast.


This is a situation easily mistaken for Stagnation (Hexagram 12) or Revolution (Hexagram 49).
It just depends on which side you’re on.
During a time of Stagnation, human worms invade to feed on the decay.
During a time of Revolution, oppression is being overthrown.
But in this situation, oppressors are violently seizing power.
Pay special heed when you receive this hexagram, because the oracle is often warning you of a situation of which you are totally unaware.
You are about to be blindsided.


From numeroscop.net


Two, as one of the Core Numbers, is an Axis of Symmetry, a point of equilibrium which provides peace to your inner world. Any disturbance of this condition you perceive as a direct threat to life and well-being. It provokes you to action with the main goal of the restoration of order and harmony in the world.Intuitive confidence in the rationality and justice of the world order makes you stick to the view that all the troubles come from the people’s inability to hear and understand each other. Therefore you voluntarily assume the responsibility of a peacemaker.

Positive qualities


The list of positive qualities of the Two fully matches the list of canonical human virtues. They are good nature, peacefulness, generosity, ethic and tact based on intuition, insight and understanding of the human soul.

Add romantic, artistic nature and an exceptional sense of beauty here, and you get a genuine Masterpiece. One can only regret that it is almost impossible to have this figure in all numbers of the numerological core, and that people whose positive qualities completely supersede all the negative ones simply don’t exist.

One should clearly see the borderline between diplomacy and commitment to the peaceful coexistence, and compliance and timidity.

Goddesses and Gods – 7 Ancient Pagan Gods We Still Love Today

The old pagan gods—those legendary figures out of Norse, Greek, Roman, and many more belief systems—are fascinating subjects. These gods had all of the emotional fallibility of human beings, yet the all the power of the gods they were, and in their stories, they proved capable of shocking levels of pettiness, jealously, and downright cruelty. They were also, however, capable of great kindness, heroism, and justice, making for a set of truly interesting characters. They were us, but moreso.

It’s no wonder, then, that many of these gods that featured in stories thousands of years ago are still prominent in our contemporary fiction. We see them in our superheroes and action stars, who can be thought of as the great grandchildren of the original pagan gods.

But those gods that have survived the millennia with their names and stories intact are the ones we love the most—something about their personalities, their struggles, or their stories intrigues us. They’re the most compelling of them all, so let’s explore them by taking a look at 7 ancient pagan gods we still love today.

The Immortality of Entertainment

The fact that we’re still telling stories about these gods and goddesses thousands of years after their heyday is amazing, and these particular 7 beings have a special appeal that goes beyond the norm.

Maybe it’s because they’re powerful. Or perhaps it is because we wish we could affect the world like they do. But likeliest of all is that their larger-than-life personalities and stories simply allow us a glimpse of the extremes of life that few of us ever get to experience.

And that is why the gods will never die.
