Zeus embodies the following characteristics:
God in the sky, lightning, lightning
He fucks for the acquisition of power
“If I want it, I take it; It’s not if, but how…”
He must cultivate responsibility to others, to recognize that their experiences are as important as his own.
Connecting to his emotions is your job
“Carvings on the headboard” is how Zeus interprets his eroticism, as sex is an acquisition of more power and validation than connection. In this scene, he abandons his quest for numbers and “wins” a true lover – a romantic fantasy of someone who will tame the wild, unavailable man.
In myth, Zeus often transformed himself into an eagle to fly and seduce lovers he would later discard, not caring about their feelings.
