Tethys, Mother of the Sea

May 5, 2015 , , , ,

Tethys is a Titan goddess, daughter of Gaia and Uranus. Her job title is mother of the sea.  She works together with Nyx and Gaia to form the Titan’s world.  She and her husband Oceanus have 3000 daughters called Oceanids.  Their 3000 sons are fresh water entities called Potamoi.  The earth’s constitution of 80% water is similar to that of our bodies’, 80-90%.  The tides and waves of deep and constant churning represent the emotions, the realm of feelings.  This goddess was mentioned in poetry, but was never worshiped by a cult.  Today one of Saturn’s moons is named for her.  Saturn III, as it is also known, has a low density because it is made of ice , with very little rock.

To ride the tides of outrageous fortune in life we must handle our own emotions and those of people around us.  There may be times the feelings of others threaten to drown us.  It can be difficult to distinguish the heart’s desire from the desires of our loved ones and associates.  The message Tethys brings us is to allow the energy of emotions to flow freely through us.  Stay true to your own heart, and remain open.  The open releasing state allows strong waves to flow through without causing damage.  Go with the current rather than struggle to defend or retain emotional stuff from others.  Your feelings move you to a calm destination when you let go and float on the surface.  There may be turmoil, but you can rise above it.

Great post. It is true that we must allow ourselves to be open to those waves to help lessen the impact and just ride it out. Thank you for sharing.

Very true. I tend to be reactive to others’ moods to the detriment of my own… it’s sometimes a challenge bringing me back to me – it’s good to have a reminder here and there. Thank you 🙂

That’s a cool bit of mythology. I like how you have looped our emotional health into this post.
