Pan is a ravenous, insatiable phallic god, whose worshipers would celebrate him with offerings and massive drunken orgies in caves and forests. He’s a god specifically of primal/carnal male sexuality. He loves sex, the joys of the body, and wine. He’s a bringer of panic (hence the name). He is a war god. He helped win the war against the Titans, as well as the war against the Persians, for the Athens.
He’s a prophet, a very wise one at that, and he can be petitioned as such. (He taught the gift of seeing to Apollo before he took over Delphi).
He is also a musician …. creator of the panpipes which can charm every single animal, and even the trees. He has a booming voice, horns that pierce the sky, the prancing legs of a goat, hooves that cause the earths to quake, and a presence that will cause all who seek him to shiver in fear or ecstasy, whichever he chooses before him.
He can be very merry and very fatherly, a protector. He can shape-shift and take other forms, as many gods can. He loves celebrations and noise —- as noise is life.
To me, he IS the ULTIMATE divine masculine. – Sin Madison
