A Month of Devotional Thought — Zeus, Entry 4

This is a post about what myth or myths about Zeus is my “favorite” and I had to think about this one for over a day, because while I worship Zeus, the myths are not anything that would typically draw me to him.

I would think that for me, it is that he actually chose a creature that was relatively helpless to woo Hera. In many of the myths concerning his wooing of both mortals and Theoi/Titanes, Zeus appears in the form of a powerful animal. In his wooing of Hera, he chose a rain-soaked cuckoo to gain her sympathy.
