Uranus was the primordial god of the sky. It is not entirely clear who his parents were, and Some say that Uranus, also called the “Father of Sky,” was the son and husband of Gaia, Mother of Earth.
Uranus married his own mother, the Mother of Earth “Gaia” later on, they gave birth to Titans and cyclopses. Gaia and Uranus were the parents of the first generation of Titans.
Legends say that it was Gaia who conceived and created Uranus, and some titles believe that he was the son of “Aether,” the primordial god of the upper air, and “Hemera” the primordial goddess of the day. This is not enough, Yet another version says that he was the son of “Nyx,” the primordial goddess of the night.
URANUS’ ROMAN NAME
Roman and Greek equivalent of Uranus is Caelus. Uranus, the more refined deity, represented the light and air of heaven, possessing the distinguishing qualities of light, heat, purity, and omnipresence. Uranus, the sky, was believed to have united himself in a marriage with Gaia. The goddess of the earth. The moment’s reflection will show what a genuinely poetical and also what a logical idea this was, for taken in a figurative sense, this union does exist.
URANUS AND GAIS’S MARRIAGE
The smiles of heaven produce the flowers of earth, whereas his long-continued frowns exercise so depressing an influence upon his loving partner, that she no longer decks herself in bright and festive robes. But responds with ready sympathy to his melancholy mood.
OCEANUS’ SON OF URANUS
The firstborn child of “Uranus” and “Gaia” was Oceanus, the ocean stream, that vast expanse of ever-flowing water which encircled the earth. Making Oceanus, therefore, the offspring of Uranus and Gaia the ancient, if we take this notion in its literal sense, merely assert that the ocean is produced by the combined influence of heaven and earth. Whilst at the same time, their fervid and poetical imagination led them to see in this, as in all manifestations of the powers of nature, an actual tangible divinity.
But Uranus, the heaven, the embodiment of light, heat, and the breath of life, produced offspring who were of a much less material nature than his son Oceanus. These other children of his were supposed to occupy the intermediate space, which divided him from Gaia.
URANUS GREEK MYTHOLOGY:
In Tartarus, the dungeon of torment and suffering, that caused Gaia pain. According to Greek mythology, Uranus Hated his kids, but it is also has been said that Uranus was scared of his kids. Uranus decided to trap all of his kinds inside Gaia’s body. Gaia was in extreme pain and wanted one of her kid s to stop Uranus from this brutality
Therefore she shaped a sickle and asked her sons to castrate Uranus. Only Kronos, the youngest and most ambitious of the titans was agreed and willing to do this deed.
.Eventually “Kronus” able to escape out of Gaia’s body and cut off Uranus’s genitals and severed the testicles into the sea, just after he came out. And when the cut-off genitals and blood of Uranus flooded on Gaia’s body, it produced the light foam, and from that foam, “Aphrodite” was born, the goddess of love.
