#greekmythology #medusa #zeus

In Greek mythology, the world began with several primordial Gods. First came Chaos, and then came Gaia, Tartarus, Eros, Erebus, and finally Nyx.

Chaos – Chaos refers to the void state preceding the creation of the universe or cosmos in Greek mythology, or to the initial “gap” created by the original separation of heaven and earth.

Personified as a female, Chaos was the primal feature of the universe, a shadowy realm of mass and energy from which much of what is powerful, mostly negative and dark originated from.
From Chaos came Gaia. Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities.

Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess.

From Gaia came Uranus, personifying the “sky” or “heaven”) from whose sexual union she bore the Titans (themselves parents of many of the Olympian gods), the one-eyed Cyclopes Giants, and of Pontus (the sea), from whose union she bore the primordial sea gods.

The Titans include the first twelve children of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky or heaven), who ruled during the legendary Golden Age, and also comprised the first pantheon of Greek deities.

Medusa ~

Medusa is one of the most well known and talked about beings from ancient Greek mythology that we have ever heard of.

Hunted by many warriors that wished to claim the prize of her head, many tried, and many have failed. It was said that men who gazed upon her eyes would turn to stone instantly. Generally described as a winged human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair.

Medusa was one of the three Gorgon sisters, daughters of the sea gods Phorcys and Ceto. Medusa – the only mortal among the Gorgon sisters – was also distinguished from them by the fact that she alone was born with a beautiful face. Ovid especially praises the glory of her hair, “most wonderful of all her charms.”

Medusa was not always considered a monster, in fact she was a mortal who was very well known for her stunning beauty until she felt the wrath of Athena, either due to her boastfulness of her beauty or because of an ill-fated love affair with Poseidon.

Her name meant “guardian” and “protectress” and Her story shows the potential cruelty that the Greek gods can have. (Gods can have)

Transformed into a vicious monster with snakes for hair, she was killed by Perseus, who used her still potent head as a weapon, before gifting it to Athena.

Medusa was a priestess to the goddess Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom and battle. One requirement to be a priestess for Athena is that the young woman must be a virgin and give her life to the goddess.
Medusa was stunningly beautiful with luscious hair and was often compared to Athena’s beauty. It wasn’t long before Athena’s jealousy of Medusa became obvious.

Poseidon (The god of the sea) lusted for Medusa and was infatuated by her beauty. Medusa rejected Poseidon, because if she wished to remain the priestess of Athena’s temple, she must remain a virgin.

Poseidon had a conflict with Athena and he saw Medusa as a possession that he could take from the goddess. Eventually Poseidon grew tired of being rejected by Medusa and decided that he would take her by force.

Medusa feared for her life and ran into Athena’s temple hoping Athena would protect her. Athena ignored Medusa’s plea for help, and Poseidon had his way with Medusa, by raping and impregnating the priestess on the steps of Athena’s temple. Poseidon vanished after he was done and left Medusa vulnerable and weak.
