Temperamental / Neptune

Aurora Pagano

From the series 'Below the Surface' (a human & sea life parallel)
Neptune's temperamental nature was legendary to explain the force and moods of the sea. His mythological partner Amphitrite (Salacia) provided the reassurance that calm would return after each storm. The legend is akin to those of us who use excuses to justify outrageous temperamental behaviors. It also reminds us of the power within the spirit to bring calm to a ruthless storm.
