Metis as daughter of Oceanus and Tethys is older than Zeus, this ancient Goddess combines the Wisdom of Aquarius with the guile and subtlety of Pisces.  This lady packs a punch where ever she is in the chart, she is one of the Primordial goddesses who cannot be ignored.

“Zeus lay with Metis but immediately feared the consequences. It had been prophesied that Metis would bear extremely powerful children: the first, Athena and the second, a son more powerful than Zeus himself, who would eventually overthrow Zeus.”

According to the legend Zeus persuaded Metis to turn into a fly and swallowed her, she then created a womb inside his head for her daughter Athena.  Wracked with agonising pain Zeus made Hephaestus split his head open with an axe, giving birth to Athena.

Metis in the natal chart connects us to the spiritual wisdom of our divine parents, giving us understanding of the purpose of life events from a spiritual perspective.  Metis represents the prayer of serenity, she gives us the wisdom to know the difference between what can be changed and the understanding to face what cannot be changed.
