Kronos/Saturn, the "Devourer".

When Ouranos/Caelus was castrated by his son Kronos/Saturn, his genitals fell into the sea. He became the sperm donor for the goddess personifying the sea, Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon/Neptune, and the sea gave birth to Aphrodite/Venus. Ouranos/Caelus is the biological father of Aphrodite/Venus!

"Dis" WAS the Roman name for Pluto before the Romans adopted the Greek name instead! I kid you not!

This also makes Poseidon/Neptune her stepfather.

It's neither Greek nor Latin.
In Hurria in eastern Anatolia the Hurrian god Anus
was originally the cup bearer
for an even older heavenly ruler, Alalus.
After nine years Anus defeated and overthrew his master
dispatching him to under the earth
Similar to Zeus' overthrow of Kronos or his defeat
and casting into Tartaros of the Titans
The sky god Anu aka Anus equates to the Sumerian An/Anu, Ouranos, and Varuna
though there was no Earth consort in this myth.
However, the overthrow of this primordial sky god
closely parallels both the Sumerian and Greek versions
He took his seat on the throne and had Kumarbis as his cupbearer.
Likewise, after nine years
Kumarbis rebelled and usurped the rule of Anus who fled to the sky.
Kumarbis also bit off and swallowed his phallus
which detail parallels Kronos' castration of Ouranos.

In this act Anus had some revenge
by impregnating Kumarbis with the Storm-god
the god of the Aranzahas (Tigris) river, and Tasmisus.
Anus then hid himself in heaven.
After the Storm-god's 'birth' or regurgitation
this triad plotted to destroy Kumarbis
and, with his other children, succeeded.

Although this part of the Hurrian story diverges somewhat from the Greek
we can still recognize that this impregnating of Kumarbis equates to Kronos' swallowing his children before both finally regurgitating them.

The respective children overthrew both of these gods
of whom the 'Storm-god' was the leader in both myths.
The 'impregnation' of Kumarbis also reflects another theme
recalled in such myths as Zeus' swallowing of his pregnant wife Metis
before 'giving birth' to Athena from his head
- a theme that is otherwise very strange to the other Indo-European peoples.

So, a blaze is what you get when you take a lighter to it?

You could call it "Laughing Buddha". Except, I think there's already a strain of sativa with that moniker.

Hmm. What about "Laughing my as's off" for a brand name? Subtly telling people where its from without actually doing so!

Actually, "Lighten Up" is what recognizing that Aquarius has a new Domicle-ruler is all about. With gloomy old Saturn as an annoying backseat driver, trying to ruin the party.
