Apotheosis: Semele Thyone and The Upper and Lower Faces of Divinity

Beth reblogged this on Wytch of the North and commented:

Just as with Thenea's previous posts on this topic, this is quite amazing. It speaks to me on a number of levels, particularly this, which has some relevance to why *my* Odin is the way He is: >>Zeus chose to present himself in a way that would best help Semele to develop into the goddess she was meant to be.

Happy birthday, Loki. <3
