Amphititrite – “all-encircling Triad” – the pre-Hellenic Triple Goddess transformed into a mere Sea Nymph by Hellenic writers. She was forced to marry Poseidon (Neptune) because this god was “greedy of earthly kingdoms,” which implied that the earthly kingdoms used to be owned by the nymph herself.” Barbara Walker – The Womans Encylopedia Of Myths & Secrets.”
Amphitrite, the original Ocean Goddess turned Mrs Neptune. Her Roman name was Salacia – “the salty one.”
Leaving aside arguments of whether the astrological Neptune is in fact a feminine force, Amphitrite is an asteroid – number 29 if you want to fling her into your chart using the extended chart options of Astrodienst.
The Queen of the Sea, this most ancient of Ocean Goddesses – half the British navy used to be named after her – is currently at 16 Capricorn – near Pluto & Mars. Where is YOUR Amphitrite and does the concept of this creature have any resonance for you?
