Poseidon, God of the Sea

Poseidon, also known as Neptune, is God of the ocean and is also known for his hand in earthquakes.

Zeus, Hades, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera are siblings to Poseidon.

Symbols for Poseidon are, the trident, dolphins, horses, and bulls.

According to Plato, Atlantis is Poseidon's chosen stomping ground.

After the defeat of Cronus, the three brothers, Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon divided up the seas, sky, and underworld, and all three rules the Earth and Olympus.

There are many who believe that Poseidon, and other brothers and sisters were swallowed by Cronus and that Zeus saved them. Others believe that Rhea tricked Cronus into believe she's given birth to a colt to save Poseidon, and hid him.

Legend has it that Poseidon was married to Amphitrite. Yet, was quite busy lusting after others including mortal women and having children with them also. A few of the more popular children of Poseidon are Atlas (one of the first rulers of Atlantis), and Theseus.

If choosing Poseidon as your Patron God, just remember, he can be tricky. Be patient and listen, or you might get serious emotional tidal waves! I would suggest having things that are oceanic in nature, like salt water, shells, etc. Poseidon is an amazing one to work with, and having a connection to the ocean, he is one of my all time favorites! :)
