Prometheus and Helios — Titans of the Solstices

Whether you are celebrating the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere or the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere the Titans Prometheus and Helios are ones that come to mind for me. Today is the day that Helios is at his most northern point in his journey through the heavens and starts his yearly journey to the south. Prometheus is the Titan who gave humanity the ability to look forward and see that this will happen each and every year. Prometheus is also the one who taught humanity to harness the fire that he took from the chariot of Helios.

Many people do not honor the Titans in their practices, but I think that we need to look at the gifts of these two in order for us to fully appreciate the gifts that the Titans — along with the Olympians have given us.
