The God of Air - stormy invasive macho masculinity

Power-oriented energy

Animus and Anima in their negative form in cooperation

The god of air is the archetype for effervescent and phallic macho masculinity that desires power in order to rule, both in the realm of matter and spirit.
With his oppressive claim to dominion, he represents the unity of the negative animus as oppressor with the negative anima as seductress for the purpose of dominion in the realm of spirit.

[S. Animus and Anima for Fundamentals and The Harlot and the Beast for the Collective Aspect].

Effect in men and women !

Let's get it straight from the start: This stormy energy can take possession of men as well as women! It belongs to the red phase (see The Three Colours White - Red - Black). This means that it takes possession of young men as well as of more mature women who are on the way to integrating their masculine parts (see The Integration of the Animus). This is "negative", namely immature, dominant and power-oriented masculinity.


Phallic energy growing towards the sky

Man in the grip of this energy uses his physical and material superiority to exercise power. In his endeavour to subjugate matter, any means will do, from oppression through violence to spiritual abuse.
Thus the "phallic" energy grows up to heaven, that is, into the realm of the spirit. This is the meaning of the biblical "Tower of Babylon", which is an allegory of the Gilgamesh epic (see below and
Introduction to the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh).

The Anima as Air-Spirit: Seduce and Stoke the Fire

The negative anima: Dominion in the realm of the spirit as "God

The man of power naturally also wants to legitimise his claim to power spiritually in order to be able to rule like a god. For this purpose he mobilises his spiritual aspect, namely his inner woman (Anima). By mobilising his negative anima as a serpent, he uses lies and cunning strategies to seduce and blind the masses. (It began in a small way, see. The Bible's account of the Fall of Man and the mystery of the serpent..)

The negativa anima light figure or leader personality

The anima can shimmer and dazzle. Therefore, those who are in the grip of the god of air like to position themselves as "saviours" or "leaders" and justify restrictions on individual freedom as "necessary actions" in the interest of the general public. In doing so, catastrophes, fear and terror play into his power's hand. For the insecure and frightened people now want a strong hand and welcome assertive male energy.

The negative anima as "whore": devaluation of women

The negative anima as a WHORE is also responsible for the fact that men who seek power treat women like whores. For she seduces to lust instead of love by taking possession of the man's soul (AIR) through erotic imaginings and fantasies. Thus she kindles his physical passion, his FIRE, which quickly gets out of control and directly attacks female bodies (EARTH). (Thereby the soul, WATER, falls by the wayside, it "evaporates", that is, it literally goes "into the AIR"; see The Four Elements and The Wrong and the Right Turn).

[S. The negative anima as snake or whore. and. The Negative Dynamics of the Elements, FIRE AND ICE (Fundamentals).]

The god of the air and the storm

The God of Air and Storm: Sturm und Drang (Storm and Stress)

Air, the element of the male soul

The element of the male soul is AIR (s. The four elements and What is the soul and where in the body is it located?).
The path of the man to wholeness means that he is in contact with his positive inner woman ("VIRGIN") to find love (the feminine side of the spirit). In other words, he integrates his feminine parts and wins his soul with them.

Development from Sturm und Drang to maturity - from power to love

It is natural that the young man first wants to test his strength and power. But it is the way of the hero to learn to control the inner fiery passion. This path leads to kingship in life.

As a negative drive (animus) in matter

As a pain instinct and spiritual drive for warlike activities

On the other hand, those who have not yet integrated love are instead oriented towards power. He is in the grip of the negative drive, the ego, which rules over drives.
the strong youthful and impetuous drive seduces to reckless behaviour, it causes pain to others. Thus, the god of air also represents the ideal of the oppressor and despot who subjugates land, women and the whole people.

[S. The negative animus as the devil or body of pain.]

As an archetype for this impulsive and possessive energy, the god of air was mostly worshipped when warlike activities were in the foreground.

The God of the Air as the "inverted" Son of the Father

As an archetype for youthful, impetuous and conquering masculinity, the god of the air corresponds to the "disobedient" or "wicked" son of the father ...

The two different sons of the father

The son of life and the wicked son

Already in Sumerian mythology (as later in Christian tradition) the loving father has two different sons.

  • One is called the Son of Life (Dumuzi for DUM = Son and ZI = Life).
  • The other appears covertly as the "wicked" son. This is only expressed in the Babylonian transcription in the name Isimud. For in it the syllables ZI (life) and MUD (= inversion of DUM) are found.

(S. Sumerian mythology, The Me, Powers of Wisdom and The choice of the goddess).

Christ and the Anti-Christ: the good and the evil instinct

Basically, the SON as an archetype stands for the power of the FATHER and thus also symbolises the potency to produce a son (i.e. the phallus; see Male Wholeness 3-in-1, Father - Son - Spirit).

As a good and as a bad drive in matter (animus)

As a spiritual force, the SON works as a drive in matter (animus). Here the positive force represents the drive out of love ("Christ"), the negative, on the other hand, out of pain, anger and lack (see The Negative Animus as Devil or Body of Pain.).

The upside-down son: the uncontrolled drive

Consequently, the upside-down son of the father also symbolises the uncontrolled drive of the (expectant) father. He does not want to surrender, but strives for power in order to be able to take. The man in the grip of his drives pursues his own interests, does what he wants, consumes where he can, and subjugates the feminine (the land and women). His ultimate power is the fear of death.

The obedient son: devotion

On the other hand, the obedient Son, according to the will of the Father, gives himself to the feminine and thus to life itself. He does not fear death, but overcomes it in the power of love and trusts in (eternal) life.

[S. Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One.]

Christ or Messiah means "the anointed one". His nature is that he does not impose himself, but comes to love and serve. Thus he also sows his seed (of the Word) only where it is received with love, and looks for the sign of readiness, the anointing).

Ambivalence of the Animus ("Shamash") already in the Gilgamesh epub

Thus the animus as a drive in matter and in the body has an ambivalent function and works either negatively (as a drive) or positively (through love).
This is also already expressed in the Babylonian Gilgamesh epic. In it, the god Shamash symbolises the animus on the one hand as a celestial bull (for the strong drive; see Gilgamesh and Enkidu) and on the other hand, later, also the force that carries over the waters of death (to eternal life). (The god of air, on the other hand, stands only for phallic-invasive energy, see The Felling of the Cedar). In the name Shamash can also be seen a reversal of the syllables SHA for ruler - M - and ASH for the opposite, servant?)

The god of air in the traditions

Egyptian tradition (from 3000 BC)

Seth, god of the desert, storm and chaos dragon (-> "Satan")

The Egyptian god Seth, roars from the sky in a storm and embodies chaos, confusion, anger, rage and violence. It was Seth who killed his brother Osiris, who also raped Hathor, the goddess of the underworld.
Horus, the son of Isis, the goddess of love, defeated him, however, and cut off his head. Seth then disappeared in the form of a roaring dragon.

The connection between the dragon and Satan is taken up in the Revelation of the Bible (chapter 20), where the dragon reappears and is finally defeated.

Supreme God under Ramses II.

Seth was worshipped in Egypt for about 400 years. His worship began at the time of foreign (Canaanite) kings (Hyksos) under Nehesi (around 1720 BC) and reached its peak under Ramses II (around 1300).

Sumerian tradition (from 3000 BC)

EnLil, the god of air

Abuse and the suppression of the feminine are already addressed in the earliest myths such as the Sumerian tradition of Inanna, the goddess of love.

The wind or god of the air, who is responsible for life losing its anchorage in love and falling into unconsciousness (into the underworld) thus symbolises the negative drive in matter as the body of pain or the devil..

Lilith, the daughter of the god of air

Also in the Sumerian tradition Lilith is already mentioned. She represents the dark side of the virgin. (The name Lilith, often translated as "night wind", comes from Lil=wind and Itu=dark.)
As "daughter of the wind" she corresponds to the archetype of the negative Anima (as WHORE or SNAKE).who lives power instead of love. She is not "grounded" in her body, but exercises spiritual power through seduction.

[S. The great feminine in the underworld; Sumerian lore of Inanna, The Tree of the Goddess in Eden and Lilith]

Babylonian tradition (around 1500 BC)

EnLil, the god of air - responsible for the great flood

In Akkad-Babylon, EnLil (En=God; Lil=Air) rises to become the highest god. He is worshipped by the despotic ruler Gilgamesh, while the goddess of love is devalued by him as a whore. According to the Gilgamesh epic, EnLil, the god of air, was also responsible for the great flood. (Strictly speaking, however, it was the wrathful goddess of love who, in the grip of her negative masculine parts, reacted angrily destructively to the injustice that had occurred).

[S. The Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh: The felling of the cedar; The Bull of Heaven.]

Saving life through the Father (EnKi) and UtNaPischtim (Noah)

However, in order to save the life across through the flood, the loving Father (EnKi, God of the earth) secretly consecrated a faithful person. In the Bible, his name is Noah ("rest"). In Babylonian tradition, the man who survived the flood is called UtNaPishtim (which can be translated as "purification"). He was elevated (by EnLil!) to the status of gods after the storm subsided.

[S. The man who survived the flood.]

Marduk - The Creation of the World from the Murdered Mother

Babylonian tradition also tells the story of the creation of the world by the spring god, Marduk. As the god of spring, Marduk is also an archetype for youthful, immature masculinity, which is confirmed by the content of the tradition:
Marduk, bursting with powerful macho energy, wants to rise to become the supreme god. As god of the air, he creates seven evil winds, including the wind of confusion. he succeeds in catching the (mother) dragon (TiAmaT = goddess of life) in his net. Then he thrusts his long spear through her open mouth right into her heart.

[S. Marduk or: Did the Devil Create the World?]

Jewish tradition (Old Testament of the Bible, around 500 B.C.)

Man as God: Building the Tower

In the Old Testament of the Bible, nothing good comes from Babylon. The spirit of Babylon is responsible for people rising up to heaven and striving for their own divinity. This leads to insurmountable communication difficulties. (More s. Introduction to the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh.)

"God" as the author of the Flood

According to Jewish tradition, it was "God" who caused the Flood[1]. This shows that the Jewish tradition can also live with an ambivalent God, as he appears in the older traditions. It also testifies to profound wisdom, for "God" also contains the archetype of the goddess raging with righteous anger. And lastly, it also testifies to a humble attitude of not needing to understand everything, but rather trusting that nothing happens in the world outside of God's control.

Christian tradition (New Testament of the Bible)

The Spirit of Babylon as the Root of All Evil: The Harlot and the Beast

Also according to the revelation of the Bible, the "spirit of Babylon" is the root of all evil[2]. It is represented therein by the whore who rides on the beast, represented. (Symbols of seduction/delusion and oppression/violence.

The Prince of the Power of the Air

But the God of air is also mentioned in the Bible, namely as the "prince of the power of the air". Thus Paul addresses the believers with these words:

Until now you have lived according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in the sons of disobedience. Like them, we once lived out all our desires, doing the will of our flesh and being by nature children of wrath. [3]

There is an explanatory note to this quotation in the Bible:
Note of the "Good News" - Translation: The air as the intermediate realm of heaven and earth

According to the underlying view, the power of evil does not work from below ("hell"), but from the intermediate area between heaven and earth. From there it influences people by negatively determining the "spirit of the times", poisoning, so to speak, the spiritual "air" that people breathe. - Only above this intermediate realm are the (good) "powers" to be sought, which belong to the heavenly world, but are also subjected to Christ. (Good News Translation)

A liar, thief, robber and murderer

Jesus also had harsh words about this destructive force that comes uninvited and takes by force:

Verily, verily, I say unto you: He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but goeth in by other means, the same is a thief and a robber. (John 10:1-10 in the Bible Server)


A thief comes only to steal, slaughter and kill. I have come that they may have life and be fully satisfied. (John 10:10; 10 is considered the number of Marduk).

And to those who seek power:

You have the devil for a father, and according to your father's desires you want to do. He is a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because the truth is not in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own: for he is a liar, and the father of lies.(John 8:44 in the Bible Server)

Overcoming in the power of the Father 

The loving consciousness

The father as an archetype for the loving consciousness (see Consciousness and the Human Brain). In him is the power of liberation from bondage under the drives and matter. - As C.G. Jung put it:

The father is the representative of the spirit, which stands in the way of the impulse.[4]

That is why the FATHER also has redeeming power. As the loving consciousness, he leads through consciousness out of the bondage of instincts and matter into the vastness and freedom of the spirit.

The obedient son of the father

Thus, Jesus also repeatedly emphasised his unity with the Father. He described himself as the obedient Son and showed himself to be an anointed one through authority to work miracles.

These biblical passages:
Unity with the Father:
  • I and the Father are one. (John 10:30)
  • He who has seen me has seen the Father. (John 14:6)
The obedient son of the Father:
  • Then Jesus answered and said to them: Verily, verily, I say unto you: The Son can do nothing of Himself except what He sees the Father doing; for whatever He does, that likewise does the Son. (John 5:19, Bible Server)
 On the subject of power of attorney:
  • Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if not, believe for the works themselves!(John 14:11, Bible Server)

The God of Air Disempowered

As the obedient Son of the Father, Christ has disempowered the God of the air:

Now is the judgement of this world; now the prince of this world will be cast out.[5]

The prince of this world is none other than the negative spirit of existence. As the god of the air, he represents the evil drive, namely the ego, the dark shadow ruler, devil or pain body (see above under Christian tradition).

It is overcome by loving consciousness. And so Paul also comes to this conclusion:

The warm-heartedness of the Father is great. While we were once caught in negativity and therefore as dead, he has awakened us through his love so that we will live in Christ.[6]
