The God

godsThe God is a life force, an impregnator. He initiates change and action, he is movement and purpose. The God is neither the stern, all powerful deity of Christianity, nor is he "just" the consort of the Goddess. The God and Goddess are equal, for without one we could not have the other.

The God is the Sun, shining through the day, rising and setting in the endless cycle which rules our lives. Without the Sun we could not exist, therefore it has been revered as the source of all life. His force surges with each spring blossom, each new tree and life. He empowers and protects the creations of the Goddess.

Shown as the Horned God he is phallic and fierce. He is the tender of wild animals and is sometimes seen wearing horns on his head, symbolizing his connection with these animals, In earlier times, hunting was one of the activities thought to be ruled by the God.

The God as Son and Lover is dual, being both created and the creator. He is also seen as the Sun that dies each year in winter and reborn as Spring approaches.
