Rhea's symbol is the swan because it symbolized gentleness and peace. Rhea is seen between two lions or on a chariot pulled by lions. The holy day was Saturday, Rhea is associated with Saturday, and the holy tree was considered to be the Oak tree. Rhea is the daughter of the gods, Uranus and Gaia. She is the mother of Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, and Zeus. Rhea was the wife and sister of Cronus. After Cronus had castrated Uranus, Cronus and Rhea, took the throne together, becoming King and Queen of the world. They ruled with the ways of peace and no violence. Cronus was shocked to hear the new that one of his children may grow up and over rule him, so thus he made it a practice to swallow their children. To avoid Cronus swallowing their last child, Rhea tricked Cronus into swallowing a rock, saving her son Zeus. Rhea hid Zeus in the Dictean Cave in Crete. When Zeus reached maturity, he overpowered and dethroned his father and made Cronus disgorge his siblings, which is why they name him "King of the Gods". In Roman mythology Rhea's symbol is the Moon, in Greek mythology her symbol is "The Lunar."

"I think that we're all mentally ill. Those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better - and maybe not all that much better after all."

"Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure."
