Zeus (Jupiter)

The planet Jupiter has been known since ancient times.To the Babylonians, this object represented their god Marduk. They used the roughly 12-year orbit of this planet along the ecliptic to define the constellations of their zodiac.The Romans named it after Jupiter (Latin: Iuppiter, Iūpiter) (also called Jove), the principal god of Roman mythology, whose name comes from the Proto-Indo-European vocative compound *Dyēu-pəter , meaning “O Father Sky-God”, or “O Father Day-God”.The astronomical symbol for the planet, is a stylized representation of the god’s lightning bolt. The original Greek deity, Zeus, adopted by Romans, supplies the root zeno-, used to form some Jupiter-related words, such as zenographic.Jovian is the adjectival form of Jupiter. The older adjectival form jovial, employed by astrologers in the Middle Ages, has come to mean “happy” or “merry,” moods ascribed to Jupiter’s astrological influence.The Chinese, Korean and Japanese referred to the planet as the wood star,  based on the Chinese Five Elements. The Greeks called it Phaethon, “blazing.” In Vedic Astrology, Hindu astrologers named the planet after Brihaspati, the religious teacher of the gods, and often called it “Guru”, which literally means the “Heavy One.” In the English language, Thursday is derived from “Thor’s day”, with Thor associated with the planet Jupiter in Germanic mythology.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter

Jupiter may have originated as a sky-god, associated primarily with wine festivals and the sacred oak on the Capitol. The  consuls swore their oath of office in Jupiter’s name, and honored him.Festivals of viniculture and wine were devoted to Jupiter.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter_(mythology)

In the ancient Greek religion, Zeus was the “Father of Gods and men” who ruled the Olympians of Mount Olympus as a father ruled the family. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak.

Rhea hid Zeus in a cave. According to varying versions of the story:

  • He was then raised by Gaia.
  • He was raised by a goat named Amalthea, while a company of Kouretes— soldiers, or smaller gods— danced, shouted and clashed their spears against their shields so that Cronus would not hear the baby’s cry .
  • He was raised by a nymph named Adamanthea. Since Cronus ruled over the Earth, the heavens and the sea, she hid him by dangling him on a rope from a tree so he was suspended between earth, sea and sky and thus, invisible to his father.
  • He was raised by a nymph named Cynosura. In gratitude, Zeus placed her among the stars.
  • He was raised by Melissa, who nursed him with goat’s-milk and honey.
  • He was raised by a shepherd family under the promise that their sheep would be saved from wolves.

Cyclopes gave Zeus thunder and the thunderbolt, or lightning, which had previously been hidden by Gaia.Zeus and his brothers and sisters, along with the Gigantes, Hecatonchires and Cyclopes overthrew Cronus and the other Titans. Zeus shared the world with his elder brothers, Poseidon and Hades. The ancient Earth, Gaia, could not be claimed; she was left to all three, each according to their capabilities, which explains why Poseidon was the “earth-shaker” (the god of earthquakes) and Hades claimed the humans that died.

Zeus was brother and consort of Hera. By Hera, Zeus sired Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus, though some accounts say that Hera produced these offspring alone. The conquests of Zeus among nymphs and the mythic mortal progenitors of Hellenic dynasties are famous. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeus
