The ancient Greek Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Greek culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Tethys and the myths and legends surrounding Tethys, Tethys relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
She was a Titan, and daughter of Uranus (sky) and Gaia (earth) and she was the sister and wife of her Titan brother Oceanus. But there are two differing views on who were the parents, of the Titans in general, was it, Uranus and Gaia, or Oceanus and Tethys? If we refer to the Egyptian myth of creation, we find that, Seth and his wife Nephthys were the king and queen of all life in the sea, long before the Sky, Atmosphere appeared. Therefore, it might be rightly said that Seth and Nephthys were the parents of all that evolved on the Ocean. Seth and Nephthys were also gods of Freshwater, as was Neptune, Thus, Tethys is also a goddess of freshwater.
