Goddess Consorts

Godesses are way older than Gods cause they ruled from begin of time up to these Dei/Day. Taking over the ruler is best registrated in Egypt-Kemet and Greece-Hellas-Patris. After that monotheism have taken over, the greatest unspoken evil of the absolute ruler.

Oldest form of Consortism of a Goddess

Sacred incest between father-son and mother-bride was usual among ancient god-kings.
It was considered necessary for the goddess-queen to be periodically supplied with a young, virile consort who embodied the same god again as the older consort.
Thus Egyptian gods like Amon and Osiris were respectfully entitled, 'Husband of thy mother.' 
The reborn savior appeared as Min, or Menu, the Moon-Bull who mated with his sacred Cow-mother.
In human form, he was shown with an abnormally long erect phallus, as an ithyphallic sex god like Eros or Kama, the Bull 'from whom spring the delights of love' 

Throughout Egypt generally the company of gods of a town or city were three in number.
Two members of such a triad were gods, one old, and one young, and the third was a Goddess, who was, naturally, the wife, or female counterpart, of the older god.
The younger god was the son of the older god and goddess, and he was supposed to possess all the attributes and powers which belonged to his father .... It was assumed that he would succeed to his rank and throne when the older god had passed away. 

Here was the basis for trinities consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit 
(or, Goddess: the third member of the trinity was female, 
as she was even in Gnostic Christianity under the name of Sophia).
The same trinity occurs in almost all mythologies, without ever developing into a complete family: there is No daughter, only a son. That is, man-as-youth and man-as-man have their separate projections into divinity, but woman is always the same. 

Unlike Freud, Jung said that the meaning of the mother-son incest in religions was not based on simple eroticism but on the idea of rebirth. He said.... "To get back to the mother again in order to be born again by the mother .... One of the simplest ways was to fructify the mother and procreate oneself again .... It is not incestuous cohabitation that is sought, but rebirth ... The neurotic who cannot leave his mother has good reason; fear of death holds him there. It appears that there no concept and no words strong enough to express the meaning of this conflict. Whole religions are built to give value to the magnitude of of this conflict".

ANANKE & THE BIRTH OF THE COSMOS

I) THE COSMOGONY OF ALCMAN
Alcman, Fragment 5 (from Scholia) (trans. Campbell, Vol. Greek Lyric II) (Greek lyric C7th B.C.) :

"`[First came] Thetis (Creation). After that, ancient Poros (Contriver) [Khronos?] and Tekmor (Ordinance) [Ananke?]' : Tekmor came into being after Poros . . . thereupon . . . called him Poros (Contriver) since the beginning provided all things; for when the matter began to be set in order, a certain Poros came into being as a beginning. So Alkman represents the matter of all things as confused and unformed.

Then he says that one came into being who set all things in order, then that Poros came into being, and that when Poros had passed by Tekmor followed. And Poros is as a beginning, Tekmor like an end. When Thetis (Creation) had come into being, a beginning and end of all things came into being simultaneously, and all things have their nature resembling the matter of bronze, while Thetis has hers resembling that of a craftsman, Poros and Tekmor resembling a beginning and the end.

He uses the word ancient for old. `And the third, Skotos’ ( Darkness) [Erebos]: since neither sun nor moon had come into being yet, but matter was still undifferentiated. So at the same moment there came into being Poros and Tekmor and Skotos. `Amar (Day) [Hemera] and Melana (Moon) [Selene] and third, Skotos (Darkness) as far as Marmarugas (Flashings)’ : days does not mean simply day, but contains the idea of the sun. Previously there was only darkness, and afterwards, when it had been differentiated, light came into being."

II) THE ORPHIC COSMOGONY
Orphica, Theogonies Fragment 54 (from Damascius) (trans. West) (Greek hymns C3rd - C2nd B.C.) :

"Originally there was Hydros (Water), he [Orpheus] says, and Mud, from which Ge (the Earth) solidified: he posits these two as first principles, water and earth . . . The one before the two [Thesis], however, he leaves unexpressed, his very silence being an intimation of its ineffable nature. The third principle after the two was engendered by these--Ge (Earth) and Hydros (Water), that is--and was a Serpent (Drakon) with extra heads growing upon it of a bull and a lion, and a god’s countenance in the middle; it had wings upon its shoulders, and its name was Khronos (Unaging Time) and also Herakles. United with it was Ananke (Inevitability, Compulsion), being of the same nature, or Adrastea, incorporeal, her arms extended throughout the universe and touching its extremities. I think this stands for the third principle, occuping the place of essence, only he [Orpheus] made it bisexual [as Phanes] to symbolize the universal generative cause. And I assume that the theology of the [Orphic] Rhapsodies discarded the two first principles (together with the one before the two, that was left unspoken) [i.e., the Orphics discarded the concepts of Thesis, Khronos and Ananke], and began from this third principle [Phanes] after the two, because this was the first that was expressible and acceptable to human ears. For this is the great Khronos (Unaging Time) that we found in it [the Rhapsodies], the father of Aither and Khaos. Indeed, in this theology too [the Hieronyman], this Khronos (Time), the serpent has offspring, three in number : moist Aither (Light) (I quote), unbounded Khaos (Air), and as a third, misty Erebos (Darkness) . . . Among these, he says, Khronos (Time) generated an egg--this tradition too making it generated by Khronos, and born ‘among’ these because it is from these that the third Intelligible triad is produced [Protogonos-Phanes]. What is this triad, then? The egg; the dyad of the two natures inside it (male and female), and the plurality of the various seeds between; and thirdly an incorporeal god with golden wings on his shoulders, bulls’ heads growing upon his flanks, and on his head a monstrous serpent, presenting the appearance of all kinds of animal forms . . . 

And the third god of the third triad this theology too celebrates as Protogonos (First-Born) [Phanes], and it calls him Zeus the order of all and of the whole world, 

wherefore she is also called Pan (All). 
So much this second genealogy supplies concerning the Intelligible principles."

CULT OF ANANKE

Pausanias, Description of Greece 2. 4. 7 (trans. Jones) (Greek travelogue C2nd A.D.) :
"[On the Akropolis of Korinthos there is] a sanctuary of Ananke (Necessity) and Bia (Force), into which it is not customary to enter."

Inanna ; Cuneiform:   DINGIRINANNA   akkadian: Ištar;
is the Sumerian Godess
 of sexual love,
 fertility, and warfare.

here we find TAMMUZ as -- Dumuzid -- a SHEPHERD (like Christ) and consort of INANNA



Semiramis, Shammuramat or Sammu-ramat and her consort Nimrod
with baby Tammuz or Damuzid

her consort is young canine GOD-DOG of todays religions JHVH with Canis Major or Sirius star or Jesus, Allah, Krishna; Cane from Bible = Canaan = Phoenician/Fonetics , Anubis or Osiris, Hindu Ganesha, and last but not least representation of canine divinity Romulus and Remus that had nothing to do with a mother same as Julius Cesar that claimed that he is not of mother born, a Roman or RHO-man, Rho is Vesica Piscis, a fish, a vagina that he stole from her.
Dogma of today is that men is god and all trouble starts there.




Athena and Apollo
