HERMES

Since he connects all the others and serves as a link between human and divine reality, he is the greatest of the Gods. His counterpart occurs in all mythologies (Odin, Mercury, Thoth). Hermes is the God of language, hence the inspiration of all writers (also frequently the pen-name of ancient writers who felt they were merely the God’s amanuensis). It was Thoth-Hermes whom the scribes of Egypt always honored with a libation of ink before beginning their day’s work.

THOTH

Tehuti (Djehuti, Theutys), the Egyptian equivalent of Hermes. God of the Age after Aquarius, (Age of Capricorn, 2000 years hence). He is the “Keeper of knowledge,” stable sage and arbiter of the gods, their constant advisor, and wizard. It was his magical formulae that the dead need to know in order to pass through the underworld unscathed.
The Book of Thoth (which Crowley calls the Tarot), is supposedly the source of all wisdom. Thoth is far more than the God of language. It is in the invention of language that both the phenomenological and the material worlds are born. But language is the connection we make with the millions of things in the universe and, similarly, Thoth is the connection or Fohat of the Gods to their creative acts. He is the neter of the neteru.

The Egyptian God of magic, Thoth (or Tahuti, “The Speaker”) is self-created and dwells in chaos. As he speaks, each word becomes a created thing (as in Greek a “poem” means anything that has been made).

Penis-Measuring Among the Gods

soulbitesoptima:

When the gods go to their god-club to smoke cigars and sit in cushy chairs upholstered with the leather of mythical beasts, how do you suppose they go about measuring their penises?

By number of worshippers? By dominion? By the character of the age?

Because if it is by sheer volume of worshippers, the Abrahamic god would be the most well-endowed by far, as his count includes Christians, Muslims, and Jews.

If it is by dominion, however, and we stipulate dominion is independent of followers, some Pagan gods have lists that would extend form the tips of their rarified noses to the center of the earth and out the other side.

But if it is by character of the age, we must acknowledge it has been all Hermes for quite some time now.

He sits princely in his chair, nonchalant, highball half drunk, gesturing for another—cross-legged, bouncing his foot, checking his messages and stock quotes.

He has no use for this conversation.

greek mythology meme: [4/7] gods
↳ hermes

A son of Zeus and Maia, soon after his birth the young god escaped his crib and wandered off to steal some of Apollo’s holy oxen. Thanks to that theft, he invented the lyre and gifted it to Apollo. Although Apollo was angry about the theft of his cattle, he was very pleased with the lyre, and all was forgiven. The two became intimate friends, and later, Zeus made Hermes into his personal herald. Hermes became the god of heralds, travel, sports, trade, astronomy and astrology, but also the god of thieves and trickery.
