The Lover

The Lover Cover
Death is often seen as a lover in art. His skeletal embrace is often welcomed and to women subjects highly erotic. Although this may be the dance of life and death it can be something far more. Women may often feel a pull towards death simply because he is portrayed in the Western world as tall dark and handsome. Well, that may be the modern cause.

But the sad truth is to all to many women from the middle ages, heck from the start of time itself, he is a welcome lover. Far too many women under go abuse, sickness, and mistreatment from society. Death does not care for what the human world thinks and hence we know he will take us in his time.

Inviting or invoking him as a lover can be an understanding of this, or a call for help to the one being whose mercy is swift and endless. He is the dark knight that comes to rescue womankind and mankind as well who have been abused and forgotten by society.

Needless to say it has always been a bone of contention whether we humans may or may not choose to die, whatever the reason. Invoking death and having him appear shows that he the ultimate judge agrees our time is now.

This also poses the question if death will take you on as a lover, surely it must be for an eternity?
Of course the curious could try the astral realms, but be careful what you wish for.

That said hon, there are help lines for a reason. Ain't nothing worth dying over, trust me. Which is what death himself will always try to tell you. Life can be sweet, but we ourselves must make it so.

She defended modesty and punished illicit love and excesses. She avenged rape. She also took out her anger on those virgins who gave in to love. She did not mind marriage, but when a virgin married, she was to give up all the things of childhood, toys, dolls, locks of hair, etc., leaving them on her altar.

APHRODITE (VENUS) – Daughter of Zeus and Dione according to Homer. The Woman Born Of The Waves' according to Hesiod, born of the foam impregnated by the sexual organs of Uranus, which Cronos (Saturn) had severed and thrown into the sea. Plato identifies these as two separate Aphrodites. Ine Urania, the daughter of Uranus was Goddess of pure love. The other, called Pandemos, (Root of pandemonium?) was the Goddess of 'common' love. She married Hephaestus, but was unfaithful with Aries.

Aries was caught and humiliated. Aphrodite fled in shame to Cyprus, and there took Thrace as a lover, resulting in the birth of Eros (Love), Anteros (Love in return), Deimos and Phobos (Terror and Fear). She also was a lover of Adonis, a human shepherd named Anchises who fathered Aneas, of Hermes and of Dionysus who fathered Priapus. She was known for jealousy. She made Eos (Dawn) fall in love with Orion in spite for her seduction of Aries. She punished all who did not succumb to her. A beauty competition between Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite was proposed by Eris (Discord) with the prize being a golden apple. It was judged by the human Paris. All the Goddesses offered him bribes to win.

Aphrodite offered Helen, most beautiful of all Humans. She won and thus caused the Trojan War. Eros was the primordial god of instinct. When Aphrodite appeared he adapted himself and joined forces with her. At this time the sexes became distinct. Aphrodite's kingdom was the place of desire. Young girls were said to pass from the place of Artemis (chastity and games) to the place of Aphrodite, where they become women. Considered by some to be an affliction or madness that women must bear. She represents female lust and passion, and demonstrates its potential for destructive effect. Young girls have their virginity to the Goddess by living in her temples and offering themselves to passing strangers.

ATHENA (MINERVA) – Daughter of Zeus and Metis. Metis was swallowed by Zeus, and when it was time for Diana's birth, he had Hephaestus crack open his skull and she came forth in full armor shouting a war cry. Also a virgin Goddess, she lived among men without fear due to her warrior's skills. She was the protectress of Odysseus and other men. She was a warrior who used strategy, ambush, cunning, and magic rather then brute force. Her shield bore the head of a gorgon and she paralyzed her adversaries and make her companions invincible.

Her love for Attis, a human shepherd, drove him insane and he castrated himself for her. Her priests were eunuchs dressed as women. If is from the temple of Cybele that the reference in the Wiccan Charge of the Goddess to "At mine Altars, the youths of Lacedaemon in Sparta made due sacrifice" comes.

DEMETER (CERES) – Daughter of Cronos (Saturn) and Rhea, the Goddess of corn and grain. Demeter bore Persephone. She renounced her duties as goddess and began a fast and went into exile from Olympos when her daughter was abducted into the underworld until her daughter should be returned to her. She caused the spread of the knowledge of the cultivation of corn.

During her exile, the earth became barren until Zeus demanded that Hades return Persephone. She had eaten from a pomegranate, however, and was forever bound to the underworld. As a compromise, she was allowed to rise up into the world with the first growth of spring and return to the underworld at seed sowing in fall. And so the Earth is barren in the winter, while Demeter mourns, and becomes fruitful again when Persephone is released. Demeter made herself known to the children of Eleusis, who raised her a temple and instituted the Eleusinian mysteries. In Sept.- Oct., the candidates for initiaion purified themselves in the sea, then processed down the sacred path from Athens to Eleusis. The rites remain secret, but involve a search for a mill for grinding corn, and a spiritual experience. During the rites, men, women and slaves were all treated as equal.

ERINYES, THE – Alecto, Tisiphone and Megaara. They were born from drops of blood that fell from Uranus's severed Penis, and did not recognize the authority of the gods of Olympos. They hounded and tortured their victims, driving them mad. Also called the Eumenides, The Good Ones, to divert their wrath. Assimilated by the Romans as the Furies.
