Presented here is a wealth of myth , symbol and folklore from global cultures that show that sun goddesess are neither rare nor anomalous, but that the feminine solar tradition has been deliberately suppressed by patriarchy.

What are regarded as the normal roles for men and women have been reversed. The concept of active femininity never occurs for one instant to the men who believe that they dominate the world and regulate the established order. Yet it may well explain why in languages which have retained traces of earlier epochs, the Germanic Celtic and Semetic to name but a few, the sun is feminine and the moon is masculine -Jean Markale, women of the Celts.
