Sky god Caelus (Jupiter, Zeus, Uranus)
HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE
During earlier times, Father’s Day was known by the name of Great Sky-Father’s Day. Celebrating Father’s Day gives honor to the pagan sky god Caelus (Jupiter, Zeus, Uranus) and the summer solstice.
Part of the week of celebrations leading up to the summer solstice, the day was give over to celebrating the provision of the Sky-Father for his human children with his rich gifts of sun and rain.
Even the modern practice of giving fathers neckties as a present on this day is connected with Father’s Day’s original pagan rituals. During Roman and Grecian times, animals ready to be sacrificed were recognized by the ties of ribbon that were placed around their necks on this day; today its Dads who are being offered up as sacrifices to the Great Sky Father god, through gifts of the necktie!
Gifts of sacrificial goats and sheep (recognizable by the festive ribbons bound about their necks) were supplemented with prayers for his continued guidance in the human journey towards spiritual adulthood.
