Battle of the Weather Titans

I am not one to subscribe to mythological or religious pursuits, but this time of year really fires my brain up and I cannot help but visualize a few powerful forces of Mother Nature battling it out. I am writing this on March 13th. 2 days ago it felt like mid-spring or maybe even very early summer. With a light sweatshirt, I could imagine walking on a beach. Currently, however, there is an inch of snow on the ground.

War of the Titans

First, the incoming challenger is the goddess Persephone who is known for serving as Goddess of Spring. Then you have the former champion Hiems, the Roman personification of winter. Appropriately, all Mother Nature can do is look on as a spectator, understanding that such a contest has to happen each year. Ultimately Persephone will win the fight but, as is the case today, Hiems is putting up a good fight.

  • Caelus was the god of the skies before Jupiter
  • Sol Invictus was the god of the sun
  • Summanus was the god of nocturnal thunder
  • Neptune was the god of the sea and earthquakes
  • Fulgora was the personification of lightning
  • Aurora was the goddess of the dawn
  • Tempestas was the goddess of storms or sudden weather
Like the Greek gods of weather, there were many other, more minor Roman gods with their connection to different elements of the weather

Seeing the world like this is usually something that makes me chuckle to myself as I walk about outdoors. Mother Nature and ALL the ways she manifests her wondrous powers upon us is always something that gives me pause, kind of like seeing a perfectly circular rainbow above. A rare sight. The clarity of clouds and the depth of blue within the circle is a very noticeable contrast to the lighter hue and faded quality of clouds outside of the circle. I could go and research why this visual trickery happens but I prefer visualizing the goddess Iris who personifies the rainbow doing her magic.
