worship-this!

Jason has arrived in Kolchis and finds an ally but also a love interest inside the palace of king Aietes (son of the Sun, the name of the king related to Dawn), that is the daughter of his host, Medea. Medea’s assistance to the hero finds a parallel to Ariadne’s assistance to Theseus, they’re both key figures when it comes to the heroes achieving their mission, they both defy their fathers’ wills and they aid our heroes. Jason just like Theseus doesn’t remain faithful to his female helper. The Golden Fleece is related to the Sun and the Sun is also a symbol of the divine masculine, no wonder Jason pays his respects to Apollo any given chance, Apollo is sometimes identified with the Sun itself. Jason’s name is connected to ‘iasis’, healing, an aspect enhancing his Apollonian character since Apollo’s son, Asclepius was the god of healing.
  Medea although a granddaughter of the Sun, she’s a carrier of the Moon powers as well, she’s a witch and an enchantress just like her relative, Kirke. In Apollonius’ version of the story Medea uses her magic and potion making abilities to make the powerful dragon guarding the fleece fall asleep. Jason aims to the Sun, while Medea is a priestess of Hecate, guardian of the night, the underworld and its mysteries, a deity close to the Mistress of the Underworld,  Persephone.
  Thinking in alchemical terms each one of these characters brings a certain potion into this syzygy of differences, or else called this ‘hieros gamos’.
