 failed to pay him for building the walls of Troy, Poseidon sent a sea monster to ravage the Troad and years later vengefully assisted the Greeks in the Trojan War. His grudge against Odysseus is one of the themes of the Odyssey. He was the husband of Amphitrite, who bore him Triton, and by others he fathered many more sons, who usually turned out to be strong, brutal men (like Orion) or monsters (like Polyphemus). The Romans identified him with Neptune.

Poseidon

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Poseidon is one of the eight hypothetical planets (sometimes referred to as the trans-Neptunian points or planets, or TNPs for short) utilized in Uranian astrology. The Uranian system, sometimes referred to as the Hamburg School of Astrology, was established by Friedrich Sieggrün (1877–1951) and Alfred Witte (1878–1943). It relies heavily on hard aspects and midpoints. In decline for many decades, it has experienced a revival in recent years.

On the one hand, Poseidon is mind, spirit, and ideas; on the other, it is enlightenment, inspiration, spirituality, and “vision.” Thus, for example, a Mercury-Poseidon connection may indicate spiritual perception; Venus-Poseidon connection, pure love, or religious faith.

Poseidon

 

in Greek mythology, a son of Cronus and Rhea, one of the most important Olympian gods and lord of the seas, which he controlled with his trident. Poseidon was honored in Athens as patron of the city’s navy; the main part of the Erechtheum on the Acropolis in Athens was dedicated to him, as was the temple on Cape Sounion. Poseidon was also considered the patron of horsemen and of chariot races, which were part of the Isthmian games. In Roman mythology Neptune was Poseidon’s counterpart.
