The Cthonic Realm

echidna
The Earth Goddess

Once upon time before the Olympians battled the Titans, power was feminine. Patriarchy may rule civilization today, but the planet we call home is still female. Nature is a force of balance and throughout time human history sort to merge it's duality to reflect the oneness of the Universe itself.

The Great Transition

Here are three stories that tell of the great transition. The absorbing of knowledge, cautionary tales of revenge that sparked the fear of Chthonic power wherever it may surface and the fiery defeat and abasement of the Feminine's previous existence as a governing force of the seasons.

Metis

Zeus had a first wife and Athena has a mother. Her name is Metis and Zeus swallowed her to keep her close and her wisdom hidden and for his use alone!

Echidna
