Since I’ve seen so many people around asking about Demons, if they’re bad or not, if they’ll ruin their karma and so on and also…many people don’t want to use the word “Demon” cause they have negative feelings connected with the word, I thought to start first with what Daemon (Δαίμων) aka Demon actually means, since there’s so much misconception around the word and, mostly, the meaning. Tomorrow then…!

Just added my new pcs to my greek mythology sleeve. I calledcalled upon Aphrodite just as I was about to begin and requested she bless it with energy. It was quite incredible when she began to place energy in the room, the artist said he was getting hot all of a sudden. But he did a great job!!

Thanks for this, its really great! The titans almost seem as if they could have been a stand alone pantheon and the Olympians were added later? Possibly Mycenaean?

But they were a stand alone pantheon during the Golden Race era, or also known as “Era of Astraea” (Astraea is the daughter of Astraeus and Eos and is the Goddess of Innocence and Purity) . (see the post above on Daemons):

Could be very likely that they weren’t added, but they just took over. It’s not uncommon a hierarchy shift, we see it in many ancient civilizations and cultures, where a generation or a group of Gods are going against the Elders. Norse mythology, Sumerian, Hittite etc etc

Things were better under titan rule it would seem.

Anyone interested for Orphic Theogony (Orphism)? Since It’s a bit more complicated than Hesiod’s Theogony and it will take a good part of my time, I won’t do it for just 2-3 people.
