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.
|Ananke consort Chronos|
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".
