Her husband was shocked at the nature of their offspring, so to protect them all she decided to hide them. The best hiding place she could find was inside her own body. Which was terribly uncomfortable for all concerned. Luckily her youngest, CRONUS, came to the rescue armed with a large cutting tool.
But all that’s behind her now. She became best friends with HERA, giving her the Golden Apples of Immortality as a wedding present, and always gathered the utmost respect. As fertile as they come, her offspring also includes ACHERON, the God of Rivers, PYTHON, and who knows who else.
Nowadays, GAIA is a Big Mother in the New Age world. Symbolizing all that’s good with femininity, nature, fertility and spirit, she’s extremely popular with Pagans, Witches and all Earthy types.
