The Horned God

 The Male aspect of Divinity is called by Witches The Horned God. below are a few of His faces. Included also are the Lords of the Four Winds.

Was looked upon by the pastoral inhabitants of Greece, particularly in Arcadia, as the god who watched over the pasture fields, herdsmen, and herds. Woods and plains, hunting and fishing, were under his immediate care and patronage, and on his account he was differently described as a son now of Zeus, now of Hermes, his mother being in each case a nymph. As God of green
fields he was associated with the worship of Dionysus (Bacchus).. He was fond of sportive dances and playing on the shepherd's pipe, which afterwards took its name of Pan's pipe from him, the story being that he was the inventor of it. It seems that a coy nymph named Syrinx, whom he loved and followed, was transformed into a reed, that Pan cut it fashioned it into a pipe (Syrinx) with such sweet notes when skillfully played, that he once ventured to challenge Apollo a competition.  The judge selected was Midas, who awarded the prize to Pan, and was, in consequence, punished by Apollo, who made his ears grow like those of an ass.

    As god of herdsmen and country people, he journeyed through woods and across plains, changing from place to place like the nomadic or pastoral people of early times, with no dwelling, resting in shady grottoes, by cool streams, and playing on his pipe. Hills, caves, oaks, and tortoises were sacred to him.

   The feeling of solitude and lonesomeness which weighs on travelers in wild mountain scenes, when the weather is stormy and no sound of human voices is to be heard, was ascribe to the presence of Pan, as a spirit of the mountains, a sort of Number Nip. And thus anxiety or alarm, arising from no visible or intelligible cause, came to be called "Panic fear," that is, such fear as
is produced by the agitating presence of Pan.

    His common companions were Nymphs and Oreads, who danced to the strains of his pipe, and were not infrequently pursued by him with violence. It is said that he rendered important service to the gods during the war with the Titans, by the invention of a kind of trumpet made from a sea-shell, with which he raised such a din that the Titans took fright, and retreated in the belief that some great monster was approaching against them. Another story is, that Dionysus being once seriously attacked by a hostile and very numerous body of men on his way to India, was freed from them by a sudden terrible shout raised by Pan, which instantly caused them to retreat in great alarm. Both stories appear to have been invented to give a foundation for the expression "Panic fear," which has been explained above.

    Pan, also called Hylaeos or forest god, was usually represented as a bearded man with a large hooked nose, with the ears and horns and legs of a goat, his body covered with hair, with a shepherd's pipe (syrinx) of seven reeds, or a shepherd's crook in his hand, From Greece his worship was transplanted among the Romans, by whom he was styled Infius, because he taught them to breed cattle, and Lupercus, because he taught them to employ dogs for the purpose of protecting the herds against wolves.

Lucifer : Also called Eosphorus ,Hesperus , Phosphorus. Lucifer is the morning and evening star (Venus). He led the way for Eos heralding in the Dawn. He is the brother of the Four Winds. Again we get 2 conflicting accounts of LUCIFER'S parentage:


2. EURYBIA and Unknown.

Astraeus  is called the father of the stars, with which heaven is crowned. No particular tales are attached to him,
but his offspring is most remarkable. (Astraeus  is a Satyr just like Pan with that fact in mind it is easy to see where Lucifer was eventually depicted as having cloven hooves and horns!). Zephyrus  (West Wind), Notus South Wind) ,Boreas (North Wind) , Eurus  (East Wind), Eosphorus, Astraea, Dike.

Eos: Is the Dawn.  Parentage: Hyperion & Thia
Helios and Selene where her brother and sister, while she herself was the personification of the Dawn of Morning. a fresh wind was felt at her approach, and streamers of color spread out toward the earth, she was called the rosy fingered dawn.

Eurybia: Titan daughter of Oceanus and Gaea by some accounts the Mother also of Astraeus

Lucifer Preceding Dawn


As was  previously said, the offspring of Eos and Astraeus, According to another report, neither the origin nor the number of the deities of the winds  was known, the prevalence in particular districts of winds , blowing from this or that point between the four chief quarters, naturally giving rise to a set of personifications such as north- west wind, south-west wind, and others.

   The character and appearance ascribed to each of these  deities was, as usual in Greek mythology, such as was suggested-
   by the phenomena of each wind. Some were thought to be male, some female,  and all winged.

the principal were:
I have also included their equivalent Archangel. * special note in some of the oldest Quabbalistic texts Raphael and Gabrial are attributed to the opposite direction. I have also noted that the same is true in some sources for Euros and Zephyros. *
Boreas, the north wind,  strength and fury of the north wind. 
ARIEL (URIERL) Archangel of the North, Keeper if the Sacred Wisdom. Traditionally, Ariel appears as a serious faced man of mature years with flowing silver hair and violet eyes. He wears a cloak of rainbow colors that flashes and glows in his aura.
Euros, the east wind, who brought warmth and rain from the east, was represented holding a vase inverted, as if pouring rain from it. 
   Raphael Archangel of the East, mystic illuminator, star traveler.  Traditionally appears wearing the garments of a traveler - a kind of astral bard.  Wears winged sandals, broad brimmed hat and yellow cloak and carries a staff  with Serpents.
Notos, the south wind, genial warmth of the south 
   Michael Archangel of the South, warrior of the Sacred Flames. Appears as a golden haired warrior clad in golden armor, pleated kilt and curved  breastplate. Right hand holds an engraved runic sword. Left hand is behind a battle shield.  This angel didn't become St. Michael (as some say)
Zephyros, west wind, Zephyros, coming from the warm, mild west, was lightly clad, and carried a quantity of flowers in his scarf. 
   Gabriel  Archangel of the West, angel of the Moon and Inner Vision. Traditionally appears as a young man, strong and wise with an inner glow. He wears a luminous cloak, and on his forehead, the curved crescent horns of the waxing moon he is also depicted as carrying a horn which he does not blow, contrary to popular modern myth.

Lips, who from the south-east wafted home the ships as they neared the harbor of Peirams at Athens, held  the ornament from a ship's stern in her hands.

Apeliotes, the south-east wind, carried fruits of many kinds, wore boots, and was not so lightly clad as the last mentioned.

    Though the winds were looked on as each under the control of a separate divine being, whose favor it was necessary to
retain by sacrifice, no particular story or myth is told of any one of these persons excepting Boreas and Zephyros, the rival
lovers of Chloris (Flora), Zephyros being the successful suitor. Boreas carried off, it was said, Oreithyia, tile beautiful
daughter of Kekrops, king of Attica; and remembering this, the Athenians in their distress, when the Persians advanced
the first time against Greece, called upon him for aid, which he rendered by sending a terrible north wind, which overtook
the Persian fleet near the promontory of Athos, scattered and largely destroyed it. From that time the Athenians had an
altar to him, and offered sacrifice at it for their preservation.

    The scene of Boreas carrying off Oreithyia is represented on a beautiful bronze relief found at Calymna, and now in the
British Museum. The wind god is powerful in form, bearded, but still young, and wearing thick high boots, and a mantle
thrown across his body.
